West Chapter Report – February 2012
GREENSBORO, NC – (NCRSCCA) – The West Chapter NCRSCCA met Feb 7, 2012 at Coopers Ale House in Greensboro, NC. With 21 racing fans attending, we filled up the room. The food was great and the beverage was cold, yeah, there was the random cup of coffee being enjoyed. I must admit that I to, most often finish the evening up with a cup of decaf. We welcomed a new guest, Daniel Copsey. Daniel is ready to see some racing acition and all hooked up for the March weekend.
The list of topics ranged from the great Banquet in January to review of the last Board meeting.
Steve Rose gave us the run down on the new racing series TCPS, Tarheel Cup Pro Series, which will have its first race at the March event this year. What a great opportunity for National racers to get a 45 min. race in as practice for the Double National in April.
The Comp Board has done a good job of putting together a March racing weekend that is sure to give everyone plenty of track time.
We had the pleasure to award three (3) of our members with Annual Awards for 2011:
Timing and Scoring Rookie of the Year: Bradley Seay — Congrads Bradley GREAT JOB!
Hard Luck & Perseverance Driver Award: Jerry Pell
Hard Luck & Perseverance Driver Award: Brian Hooper
Next time you see Bradly, Jerry and Brian (they will be at the track in March) give them a big Congrats, they earned it.
For the 5th year we attended the Greensboro Hot Rod and Drag Racing show. Ton’s of racing and car fans came through the show. THANKS to Jerry Pell for bringing his race car. Jerry Pell, Bradley Seay, Annie Lindquist and Doug Hooper showed up to work the booth and work they did, we meet lots of folks that want to attend or be involved in roadracing. I want to give a BIG Thanks to DOUG HOOPER, he has helped every year at this show and I’m convinced the show would not be the same without his presence. THANKS DOUG!!!
There you have it, a lot of good food, cool drinks and the best company anyone could hope for. If you get the chance, plan to attend one of our West Chapter Meetings. Hope to see everyone at the March Race at VIR.
