It looks like spring is here, and with that, the start of the midget season. Things have been a little hectic around here but we are anxious to get the #5 Mi-Jack car on the track.

We recently completed an open test at the Speedrome. Before we started, I said to the crew, wouldn't it be great if we could run real fast just like Arie did at IMS the day before, after not have been in the car for a long time. I hadn't driven a car since January, and it had full tanks! The car was unbelievably fast. It handled like it was on rails.

It looks like I will be running the NAMARS Regional pavement series at the Speedrome, as well as the local USAC races, for now. The regional Speedrome series has changed to Thursday nights, same time, practice at 4PM, qualifications at 6, racing at 7. We are still trying to secure sponsors to fund our midget program as well as an IRL start this season. I haven't been in the Indy car since Phoenix a few weeks ago. Any chance I can get, you will find me at the track ready to jump in a car and get some more laps under my belt!

We would like to welcome back Mi-jack, Sanders Sports Marketing, and McClure Oil this season. Thank you for your continued support.

Remember racing will be EVERY Thursday night!!! Depending on Mother Nature, of course.

The Speedrome is located on the East side of Indianapolis on Kitley Avenue. From Washington St. and 465 head a half-mile West to Kitley. There is a large Uhaul sign and a Ralph's Muffler shop on the south side. Turn South on Kitley, over the railroad tracks and the track is on your right. 802 S. Kitley Avenue- 317-353-8206.

We hope to see you again at the track. Until then,

GAS IT UP,
