On September 21st we closed out our 11th season here at Checkered Flag. The day was full of great racing as the old track came in real nice once again. Thank you to all that helped out all season long. We had a lot of great racing and more importantly having FUN. Congrats to all the winners.

We also crowned our Season Champions for 2014 and we congratulate all of them. Congratulations to John Dempsey, this years Jim Rupard Rising Star Award winner. Johns racing improved greatly this season and more importantly he brings his let’s have fun attitude to the track every race. We would like to thank all of our sponsors and hope you support them whenever possible. Without them we wouldn’t have the facility and prizes to share with you racers.

We would like to thank all the club members for speaking up during the club meeting as we made some rules changes for next season. There was great discussion and we think the rules we voted on will make our program and racing better next year. We will keep you updated on the race format and hopefully we will all understand it by the time the season starts.

As we wrap this up we want to thank all of you that have supported the track and club over the years. We’re not going to name anyone because we know we’ll forget someone. So if you have helped out in any way or raced here we thank you.

This all started as a dream 11 years ago and we never thought it would grow like it has. Thank you all once again. It brings us great joy to see everyone having Fun. We encourage everyone to support all of the tracks in the area so we can keep our hobby strong. Just remember to have FUN. If everyone gets 1 new racer into our hobby, it will go on forever. Once again we thank you for your support and we hope to see you at our Halloween Havoc Race on October 12th and next year for our 2015 season.

What a awesome day of racing. A big thank you to everyone that came out to show your support for the veterans. Like was said at the track, we did a great thing and you all should be proud. These men and women put their lives on the line so we can enjoy the freedom we have. It makes me proud to be an American.

We were able to raise $580.00 and we received a additional donation of $500.00 for a grand total of $1080.00. That is absolutely awesome. A big thank you to Greg and Susan Carrick of Carrick Electric for donating the trophies for the event. They definitely were fitting for the event. To the men of the VFW that came and presented the flags we thank you and thank you for your service.

Congratulations to all the winners of the races and the door prizes. We hope you had a great time and once again, be a Proud American because we did do a great thing.
