Saturday night Bob and I went to Sunset Speedway Park in Banks to watch the races. One of my marketing plans is to sponsor a race car, and Sunset has a class called Tracers, which features cars that follow the Pure Stock and Street Stock rules but have 12 to 15-year-old drivers. After watching the trophy dashes and heats, I decided I liked Jared Myers, who was making his debut. Jared is 12 years old, and he’s driving the car his grandpa, Mike Jermann, runs in the Pure Stock class. His brother, Jacob, has also been competing since he was twelve ( I think he’s sixteen now) and is currently leading the points in the Pure Stock class. We plan to go back on July 9th and hang out in the pits with Jared and his family, so stay tuned for a more detailed report.
In other news, I received my print proof of Running Wide Open a little over a week ago. I decided to change the margins a bit, so I uploaded the new file Friday and should have the final proof Tuesday or Wednesday. If everything checks out, I’ll approve it and the print version will be available through Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com in a few weeks.
