2013 TrackChasers Week 2 Summary
(Weekly Listserve Update #107) Four new race track visits were reported from the group during this past week. All four were at the same event, the first-ever race at the Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek, MI. For Allan Brown, Roger Ferrell, and Guy Smith; it was their first new track of 2013. Pam Smith is the only group member to see racing at a new track on both 2013 weekends to date.
There are already 8 group members to have seen racing at new tracks so far this year. Looks like we are off to a good start.
One new location and one new track were added to the database, the Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek, MI.
Also during the past week, we gained two new subscribers to the TrackChaser listserve. Chris Tyrrel, whose 261 track list is already available for all to enjoy on my website, finally got subscribed to the listserve as well. And Dennis Michelsen, co-host of Race Talk Radio (tune in every week to hear from the industry's movers and shakers) became our latest subscriber. Dennis becomes the third "RTR" in the group with his "Race Talk Radio", joining Andy Ritter's RTR (Roaming the Rinks), and the Guy Smith, the "original RTR" (Roaming the Raceways), which has been in Area Auto Racing News since 1981. Welcome to both Chris and Dennis, feel free to post any information you think would be for the good of the group and hobby.
As of now, I am only aware of one new track visit planned for this coming weekend. If all goes as planned, it should be a very, very special track visit. Stay tuned until we all learn how it plays out.
Pam Smith has the most new tracks so far this year, with 2. To date, 9 new track visits were added by 8 different TC's in 2013. That's not enough, we want more!
