2013 TrackChaser Week 8 Summary
(Weekly Listserve Update #113) The 2013 TrackChaser Florida barrage continued this past week. The group added 17 new track visits in Week 8, and 13 of them were in Florida.
Of course the largest attendance by the group was at the Daytona International Speedway (Short Track). No fewer than seven members of our group have reported being there, four on Monday and three on Tuesday. This was the only new track added to the database this week.
Speedweeks ended with an amazing 32 new tracks reported from Florida alone. Leading the way was Roger Ferrell. He added one more new Florida track before heading home with 12 new tracks this year in the Sunshine State. Nancy Brown added 5 new tracks in Florida, Alan Brown 3, Brian Hickey 3, Bruce Eckel 3, Pat Eckel 3, Paul Weisel 2, and John Moore 1. I can't remember so much activity in Florida as this year.
For Nancy Brown and John Moore, it was their first reported new tracks in 2013. We now have 17 different people reporting new tracks already this year.
The other four new tracks added during the past week were Quebec ice races attended by Mike Knappenberger and Guy Smith, bringing to 9 the total of people adding new tracks last week. Although I believe this week was the first time anyone from our group has seen racing on Lac William, the track was already in the database as racing on that lake dates back over ten years.
We have added new tracks all eight weeks of 2013. Five have reported plans to attend the scheduled ice race at Black Lake this coming Sunday.
The group has crossed the 50 New Track Line for 2013. To date, 58 new track visits were added by 17 different TC's in 2013. Roger Ferrell paces the field with 13. That's not enough, we want more!
