An early season thank you to CNS racers and fans
I rarely, if ever, get on here anymore and it's not because this site isn't great...it is.
However, the reason I came here today is to thank all of you CNS racers and fans for a great start to the season.
In all of my years at CNS, I'm not sure I've seen more competitive, door to door, clean (with just a few exceptions), good hard racing to begin a racing season. You guys and and gals have put on a tremendous show so far, and not just in the A-mains, I'm talking about the dash and fast dash races as well. It's been fun, it's been exciting, it's been respectful (w/a few minor exceptions) and it's been terrific for the fans. You've adapted to the new style of qualifying and points without hesitation and have generally been professional and gracious with the fans, especially during the intermission autograph sessions for dash and fast dash winners. I appreciate the effort and I know I'm not the only one.
To you fans who've braved 3 out of 4 weekends with "iffy" weather, thank you very much. Obviously, we couldn't race and the track would not exist without you, so thank you for being diehards and for braving what mother nature brings us during spring-time racing. It's sometimes hit and miss, but you've been there in pouring rain and gusty winds and your dedication is not lost on the track nor myself.
Now, I've been around loonnnnnnnnng enough to know that tempers will flare, guys will think they're being screwed by someone for some reason and fans will get fed up with my singing. But, overall, I think the on-track product has a chance to be great this year and I look forward to seeing you put on the best show that any racetrack west of the Mississippi River has to offer on a week in and week out basis. You're doing great, so let's all keep it up and have a year to remember. Seems to me the track could use more figure 8's and trains, but the Demo X (cross) guys are helping to make up for it and the fans love it.
Fans, I know you appreciate the sacrifice and hard work these guys and gals put into racing every week and you show it with your wallets....again, thank you! And, if you get a chance, please show the drivers and their crews the appreciation by heading over the pits after the races to say hi and give a high five.
Finally, one request from me. Driver, after your race, please try to slow down enough to get off the track in turn 2. I know cruising around for a lap or two to "cool down" is somewhat needed on occasion, but if too may do it, it becomes a bit of a time waster. With more time, we can do more standing driver intros and get you and your sponsors much more love. I know it's not always possible and there can be a traffic jam, but if you make the effort, I'll give you extra special Mose' love....and believe me, everyone wants that.....or, maybe they don't. Thanks in advance and keep your elbows up and the hammer down!
