With the WOO guys on tour and central PA now officially open the 2011 season is truly here. With the cost of everything including fuel spiraling upward it promises to be a challenging season. Everyone wants more while there is less to be had. I wonder how we will summarize this season come November. Above all else we pray for a safer season than 2010. We may not make as many as we had hoped, but we will make all we can. See you at the races, we hope.

We have a new column on Hoseheads.com This one is particulary special to us as it deals with some very special people. We did not submit it as one paragraph though it appears that way. Microsoft Word does some strange things at times. Enjoy the story and I apologize for the inconvenience.

As we try to put sponsorship together for our traveling program, local opportunities present themselves. Trying to determine what God wants from what we want is not always an easy task. 'Trust not in your own understanding' Not so easy though. Sometimes just asking for wisdom is asking for the greatest gift.

I tried. I really tried. Staying awake for a 400 mile NASCAR race on a one mile track takes endurance, dedication and perseverance. I failed. Twice in one afternoon... Even the crashes have become repetitive and boring. These folks pay high dollars for tickets, travel, accommodations and all that goes along with it to see brightly painted cars in a noisy parade. This while there is probably a sprint car race in their back yard. How do they sell this stuff? Where are our promoters or are there any dirt track promoters left? A hurdred thousand people paying to endure this while there is wheel to wheel action within less than a hundred miles from their home. What am I missing here? If they can sell this as racing excitement then I can sell deep freezes in Alaska. We have a better product for far less money and we are keeping it a secret from the world. What is wrong with this picture?
