I want to keep you all up to date on the upcoming IRL 2002 season, and what has been going on with my career. As of today, I will be taking one race at a time. We are set to run in Homestead Florida, Saturday, March 2nd, and we anticipate running in Phoenix, March 17th. Right now, the remainder of the season is wait and see.

We just finished up a 2-day open practice session at the Phoenix International Speedway. Boy did it feel good to get back in the car again after 4-5 months. You can’t believe the mental concentration and stamina needed on the track. You can physically condition in the off-season, but mentally, there is no real good way to prepare except for being on the track. I was sure glad to get two days of practice and over 400 miles under my belt. The Treadway Hubbard crew did a great job as we learn to work together as a team. I want to thank all of them for the good job they did for me.

We would love to see a lot of you at the track this year. I am attaching all the information you’ll need for this season including, a race schedule, track phone numbers for ticket information, TV times, and a list of the hotels where the Treadway Hubbard team will be stay. I recommend you buy your tickets and reserve your rooms EARLY if you are planning to attend a race.

Thanks to all of you who purchased the Rick Treadway Die Cast Car, calendars and hats. Your overwhelming support is greatly appreciated. If you didn’t’ get your Rick Treadway merchandise, you can still do so by calling Christine at 317-261-7541. She would be happy to email or fax you the information.

Thanks again to my friends, family for your continued support. I will keep you updated as the season progresses.
