    I would like to say "THANK YOU" to all the racers who participated in our event this year. As you know, our race program has been slowly losing cars year after year, and every year I appreciate those who show up...more and more!

    Personally, this year was the most fun that I've had in a very long time. Perhaps it was because it was basically my last year as Race Director or maybe it was simply because I've grown to love and respect every racer who shows up in the staging lanes. Buick guys/gals are the best and every year this is proven stronger and stronger. Again, THANK YOU for making my little job a lot more enjoyable each and every year. Rest assured, I will still be in the staging lanes...but hopefully as a participant!

    For the last couple years, Denny and I have brought a couple of our friends down from our local track to race in our program. With the car numbers shrinking, we really need more of our racers to do this. Even if you just bring a friend with you to spectate, we need them to make sure we can put this program on again next year. Bring your friends, they can drive Buicks, Fords, Chevys or anything else. There is open test and tune all weekend and you could get a kazillion runs on any car. Let's make it happen people, we NEED to keep the cars coming so we can keep this event going and continue to have ALL the fun that we have year after year. Share the experience!!

    Renee, thanks for all you do.

    As far as racers, I tried to light a fire under a few.....but...

    Believe me it's not easy campaigning a race car. It starts with just getting to the track. I had trailer wiring issues that I had to fix last minute in the dark. Almost gave up. Then there's my 21 yr old tow vehicle....it's gotta make it out there as well as the trailer and the always fun trailer tire issues. Sure, if you sit at home you are safe but you can do that all winter.

    One person even said that if you stay home you save money so it's like winning money. Ha???? Why even keep the car ...just to look at it in the garage?

    Thank you, the "bunny" also ran right on the dial.
    Rob returned the favor in the second round of King of the Hill. He had a .009 to my .030 light,plus he ran on his dial, couldn't beat that package, way to go Rob.

    Congrats Gary! My ride was leaving before the Q16 finals so I didnt get to see it, but I tracked down Renee and was very excited to see you won it!

    Also, thank you Renee for all your work in helping with the event!

    That is what he meant. When you start getting to his age the second thing to go is the memory and he might not remember the first
