PRESIDENT’S LETTER

[nggallery id=6]

Results: A great weekend and a great season.

I want to thank everybody for a successful season of racing, especially those who gave of their time and sponsorship throughout the year for the love of karting. Your passion and generosity makes all the difference.

And as for this weekend, I want to give a special thanks to the hearty racers who saw the grim forecast, saw the gathering clouds, and stuck around Sunday to race anyway. The fields were smaller, but there was still a lot of nose-to-tail, wheel-to-wheel action. You came to race, and that’s exactly what we did.

In this economy, it’s not easy putting on karting events at a major track like NHMS. But where other tracks in the region canceled events, we added a couple races. And while our numbers are nowhere near where we want them, even with this weekend’s weather we saw a half-dozen new faces and some of the larger fields of the year.

I attribute these results to NHKA members getting the word out. Let’s do more of that… OKAY?! As long as there are die-hard racers like the ones I saw this weekend, we’ll keep working hard to put on races.

Now if you’re looking for the weekend’s race results, most of them can be found on MyLaps. Unfortunately there was a problem with the scoring loop, so some of the races had to be hand scored. Those results will be posted here soon, along with the final 2009 championship results. We’ll also be making announcements about the banquet and other fun off-season activities. Stay tuned.
