      Subject: [TrackChasers] 2013 TrackChaser Week 11 Summary


      (Weekly Listserve Update #116) Two new track visits were added during the past
      week. One from last week and one from the week before that got lost somewhere
      in cyberspace.

      The other big news for the week was the arrival of the 2012 TrackChaser "Ed
      Esser Memorial Trackchaser Annual Award" plagues, presented by the National
      Speedway Directory to the five members of the group with the most new tracks in
      2012. This is the second year that Tim Frost of the NSD has sponsored the
      awards for the group. He has, as his predecessor Allan Brown did before him,
      sponsored similar awards for Ron Hedger's "Super Fans" in the NSSN. The NSD
      also sponsored the "Roscoe 'Pappy' Hough Memorial Trackchaser World Cup" for the
      all-time leading TrackChaser in the group. All members of the group should take
      the time to thank Tim Frost for his interest in our TrackChasing group, in short
      track racing in general, and in regular race fans of the sport. The NSD
      "footprint" can be found in print, on the web, on twitter, facebook, youtube, a
      mobile phone app, and radio with Dennis Michelsen. I'm probably forgetting at
      least one more. Tim is hard at work on the 2013 edit
      ion of the NSD, and said he will be sure to let TrackChasers know as soon as it
      is finished. Thanks again, Tim.

      Brian Hickey was at Magnolia Speedway in Mississippi on March 9, the eleventh
      state this year for TrackChasers to visit.

      This past week, Roger Ferrell added another new track to his 2013 list of
      conquests, visiting RPM Speedway of Texas last Friday during a trip that also
      included repeat visits to Batesville, AR; Ark-La-Tx, LA; and Boothill, LA.

      Texas was the 12th state to be visited for new tracks so far in 2013

      Roger single handedly kept the perfect streak going for the group, now 11 for 11
      in seeing a new track each week in 2013.

      The 2 new track visits added this past week brings our total for the year to 80
      new tracks by 20 different TrackChasers. Roger Ferrell continues as the King of
      the Hill with 14. That's not enough, we want more!

      The following are welcome at any time for those that would like toimprove the
      information already contained on their personal tracklisting:

      * 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 in the "Non TC Classified" categories will be updated assoon as
      possible, with preference always being given to the TC stats.
