      (Weekly Listserve Update #129) During the past week a total of 19 new track visits were added to the group totals, as our TrackChaser colleagues near and abroad continue to enjoy our hobby and our group. In addition to the 19 new track visits, we have a group member on the scoreboard for the first time this year, as well as new states and countries for the year as well. Another great week for our members.

      Leading the way this week was well well-noted and respected racing journalist Ron Rodda from California. Ron went on a racing vacation, and among the new tracks he visited were five new tracks in five different states in Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. Three of those states: Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming; were first-time visits for the group this year. None of the states were brand new states for Rodda. Members of the group have now seen racing in 24 different US states in 2013. Ron is the 34th person from our group to add at least one new track in 2013.

      Three group members: Guy Smith, Pam Smith, and Roland Vanden Eynde; traveled together to see races in Hungary and the Czech Republic last weekend. There have now been races reported in 13 different countries this year. Guy has now been to races in 21 countries, and Pam 19. Roland, who had been to both countries for races in the past, has been to races in an amazaing 52 countries.

      Mike Knappenberger, Gordy Killian, and future group member Jeff Sands took to the road this past weekend and saw racing at three new tracks, blending a dirt double in Indiana on Friday and seeing Southern All Star Super Late Models in Tennessee on Saturday, before being rained out in West Virginia on Sunday.

      Florida's Vince Sadowski, now located in the northeast for summer, visited two of the Micro Sprint tracks in Pennsylvania to add a couple more new tracks to his race track resume.

      Sixteen of the 19 new track adds were from the past week, while the first three from Ron Rodda were from earlier on his vacation. No midweek races resulted in new tracks this week, with races added on the three weekend days. The 19 new track visits from 2013 brings our total for 2013 to 281 new tracks among 34 different people. That's not enough, we want more!
