2012 TrackChaser Week 51 Summary
(Weekly Listserve Update #104) Five new track visits were added to the TrackChaser database during the past week. Four of the track visits were from races held last week, and the fifth was from the week before.
Roger Ferrell of Indiana and Dale O'Brien of Wisconsin joined Allan and Nancy Brown of the host state of Michigan for the indoor Mini Sprint, Legends, and Mini Cup races at the Birch Run Expo Center (South Arena). My plans to join them were thwarted by bad weather between home and Michigan. The show was deemed a success, so hopefully they will race there again in the future.
Kevin Eckert joined Paul Weisel in California the week before for the last race on the pavement at the Orange Show Speedway in San Bernadino. Kevin was not all that impressed with the racing, and did not stay to see the Figure-8 track in action.
With only four days left in 2012, there are still five TrackChasers I expect to check in with new tracks to report before the end of the year, or at the least report late December races very early in 2013. The group will be in action until the very end of the year. We wouldn't have it any other way.
The following are welcome at any time for those that would like to improve the information on their personal track listing:
* Dates to listed tracks
* Modifications to the track names currently listed
* Information for the "Notes" column for each track visited
* Tracks for any of the various "Non TC Classified" categories that are outside of TrackChasers group
Information will be updated as soon as possible.
Ourcurrent 2012 total of new track visits has jumped to 604. That's notenough, we want more!
