VIR Spring Sprints – April 18th – 20th, 2014

SPRING HAS ARRIVED!

The long cold winter is finally over and spring is here! What better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than a trip to VIR for the Spring Sprints. Three wonderful days of The Majors. National races that are always a thrill. If you’ve not signed up to work yet, go immediately to MotorSportReg.com and register now.

As always, we are really in need of workers for Friday, so if you can make it, we would really appreciate it.

The old Start stand, which had stood in front of the Control Tower on the front straight since VIR reopened in 2000, is no more. It was torn down on November 6th and the trees at Pit Out are gone as well. This was done to make room for a widening of pit road.

The fall series for races are just around the corner. Plan on coming to VIR for two great weekends of racing. We start in less than two weeks with the Goblins Go SARRC/Double ECR/Tar Heel Cup races on Oct 19th and 20th. Then the following weekend we have the Charge of the Headlight Brigade 13 hour race Oct 25th and 26th.

We desperately need volunteers for both events, especially in F&C. If you have already registered, thank you! If not, please think about joining us. If you have friends who might be interested in experiencing the racing excitement, encourage them to come along.

Also, as a reminder, we have the NCR Volunteer Incentive Program where we will reimburse workers for up to $35 dollars in expenses per day.

Today is the first day of autumn in the northern hemisphere.  Autumn is the second racing season in the North Carolina Region.  With the passage of time we look forward to new experiences and reflect on past memories.  As this year begins to wane, we look forward to exciting races and events such as the NCR picnic, Goblins Go and the 13-Hour.  We should also remember some friends who have recently passed away, Phil Hennrich and Paul Eckstein.

Walker Nelms has written an article about Eric Danielsen, one of NCR’s Flag Chiefs, for Play-By-Play Magazine, a free Roanoke sports magazine that is widely distributed in that area (Kroger, CVS, YMCA etc.)

Walker is hopeful that it will create some interest in the Roanoke area and maybe help to pick up some new flaggers for NCR!  You can view it online at playbyplayonline.net   The article is on page 7.

Thanks Walker!

We would like to give a big thank you to everyone who came out for the Oak Tree Double National. We had a couple of long days, but they were filled with some great racing. Except for a little bit of weather on Friday afternoon, it was a fantastic weekend. Thank you all for coming out to join us and help make it a great weekend.

I’d like to thank our Race Chair, Sara Snider, for hijacking the shrimp boat on her way to the track. Yet another tasty treat!

Now, on to the next race! Quickly approaching is the SARRC/MARRS Challenge, May 11 & 12 at VIR. This is a Double Regional with 2 Regions, so I guess that makes it a quadruple. That’s a lot of racing to pack into two days and you don’t want to miss it. If you have any turn requests, just add them to the remarks when you register.

Please accept our sincere apologies for yesterday’s April Fools Day newsletter.   The date of the BFGoodrich Tires VIR Super Tour — Oak Tree Double National has NOT CHANGED it remains April 19-21, 2013.

All of the other information in that newsletter was accurate.

The person responsible for the unfactual date change has been sacked.  This event is part of SCCA’s U.S. Majors Tour and is very serious.
