Economy in the tank so what do we do? Some 'promoters' are increasing pit fees and lowering purses. This sounds like goverment reasoning to me. Did they ever think about holding or lowering prices and getting out and actually promoting their product. Senior nights, scout nights, military nights and passes and printed ads given out in the community. 2 free passes per race car on regular intervals. This high level intelligence worked 50 years ago and it works today. Secret races will never make money.

BY Prime Minister GillardMuslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks. Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: “IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language! Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented It is certainly appropria

TOO MUCH GOVERMENT YOU SAY?

NEWPORT BEACH -- Gardeners will no longer be able to use gas-powered leaf blowers in Newport Beach, once an ordinance the City Council approved Tuesday takes effect. After the council members' lengthy discussion and the failure of a motion to also ban electric blowers, the council voted 4 to 3 to force groundskeepers to use a more quiet method to collect leaves and debris.

National Speed Sport News is ceasing publication and closing, effective with this issue.There isn’t any good way to digest this news, because this newspaper has been a great deal more than ink and paper. It has been our community, our identity, our trusted friend. A weekly visitor that brings news and information and a connection to the sport we deeply love. This newspaper has informed and influenced the sport for 77 years; throughout that period no media entity held greater respect and credibility than Speed Sport News. Since 1934 the people involved in the paper made it professional and solid; yet, it never felt like a distant corporate entity. It was something that belonged to all of us; it was our paper. It is impossible to measure the impact this publication has had. Collectively, you can trace the growth of motorsports directly through these pages. Four generations of readers have pored over the words and photos, gaining greater understanding and appreciation for our sport. Goodbye old friend. My daughter sold the paper through the stands in western PA when she was just a little kid. They were friends and great for our sport. This is truly an end of an era.
