      (Weekly Listserve Update #141)  In the post Labor Day weeks, we begin our taper into what is normally considered the "off season".  Of course, there really is no off season for TrackChasing.

      This past week 31 new track visits were added to a variety of different track resumes.  Two of the 31 were in the non TC "other" categories.  Twelve different TrackChasers reported visiting new tracks this week.

      The best news was that Norm Wagner, who had not been to a race all year, busted out for two trips and ten new tracks, the first just three days before it would be one full year between races for Norm.  Norm TrackChased in Indiana, in Wisconsin, and in Ohio where he has seen more different race tracks, 154, than anyone.  Very happy to have Norm back on the trail.

      Norm became the 41st person to report visiting a new track this year.  The only active regular group member to report a track in 2012 that has not done the same this year is Andy Ritter, who went to one new track last year.  Meanwhile, we have added new blood in the names of Russ Currie, Dave Garrison, and Jeff Sands.  Controlled, steady growth continues on schedule.  It's always good to have new friends to travel with and share stories and info.

      With the addition of Norm on the 2013 tally sheet, there are now 21 different group members with at least 10 new tracks this year.  Last year, there were only 19 for the entire year.  This in addition to the fact that there are 11 in the group that have been to at least 25 new tracks so far in 2013, when last year the group topped out at just five by December 31!  That's a huge indication of group growth, increased interest, and success.

      Jeff Sands had never been outside of the United States.  But thanks to our TrackChasing hobby, he now has a passport and he and Mike Knappenberger stepped onto foreign soil for races in both Ontario and Quebec.  Jeff saw four tracks, while half were also new for Mike.

      Chris Tyrrel is one who has taken advantage of the chance to add other non TC tracks to his track list display.  The four new tracks added this past week were an even split between TC and non TC race track visits.

      England TrackChaser Colin Herridge had a multiple new track run, adding three new tracks in his home region in a period of seven days.

      Vince Sadowski was one of four (five if you count Rick Schneider) at the Iredell County Fairgrounds, NC track.  Vince also added another track in the state.  Single new tracks were reported by Guy & Pam Smith, Brian Hickey, Bing Metz, Paul Weisel, and Roland Vanden Eynde.

      Also congratulations to Paul Weidman, who completed 45 years of service at his school this year.  In appreciation, the school sent Paul and Eleanor on a trip to the NASCAR Cup race at NHIS. 

      Races were added on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday last week, in addition to  Monday with those holiday tracks added last week.  New locations were the Banger race in Llanymynech, Wales; and the Autocross at Haler, Netherlands.  Races have been added in all 36 weeks this year.

      The total of 29 new 2013 TC tracks brings our group total for the year to 631.  THIS SURPASSES THE ENTIRE 52 WEEK TOTAL OF 2012!  A job well done.  Guess what?  That's not enough, we want more!
