181772014 TrackChaser Group Week 15 Summry
- Apr 17, 2014TrackChasers:
(Weekly Listserve Update #171) Kind of short and sweet this week. The tally for week 15 was six new tracks from five different TrackChasers. Roland Vanden Eynde was the only one to add more than one track last week, with one in Netherlands and one in France. The other four came from Pam Smith and Jeff Sands in Virginia; & Dave Ludwig and Edward Corrado in Pennsylvania.
Jeff Sands became the 34th on the scoreboard for 2014. It was the 74th straight weekend with new tracks reported.
Dave Balloch sent a picture of Tommy Hinnershitz wrenching for Jimmy Packard at Daytona, which was a track we did not have on the Tommy Hinnershitz track list and became his 115th track.
Edward Corrado also added one non-countable track to his list.
A new track list was added for the 16th straight week. This week it was A. J. Foyt from Texas. His track list is certainly missing a lot of tracks visited in the past decade or so as a car owner, as well as early in his career before joining IMCA and USAC, but I thought that since we had over 100 tracks for him the best idea was to put it on the website and available for everyone, so hopefully we could get some contributions to add to his tracks. Currently I have 119 tracks for Foyt.
The total this week was six from the past week, one from a previously included driver, and 119 for the latest added driver, for a total of 126 new tracks added plus the one "other".
Continue to send good thoughts to our friend Dave Garrison, who appreciates our support.
The six new 2014 tracks brings the total for the year to 140. That's not enough, we want more! Edward Corrado is now up to 33 new tracks for the year.
