With apologies to the miners, and families of miners of West Virginia, no slight intended.

Looks like there will be no mine shaft this year for Gatornationals. The coldest it has been this "winter" has been 69. Did have ten inches of rain today which means this must be spring. Two weeks from now in Gainesville it will probably be in the 90's. Great for bikinis, bad for prostock.

Here in SC it hasn't really been winter either. Even the humidity hasn't gone away. Neither have the mosquitos. I like winter (horsepower in the air), not a real winter like you guys up north have though. Hopefully my local track will open up at the end of February under new ownership. I keep meaning to ride down and look, supposedly everything has been redone - track surface, retaining walls, concession stand, bleachers, bathrooms, and parking areas. Keeping my fingers crossed it's going to be good. Hope everyone gets to race soon. Clay

Clay, you could bring that trailer queen down to Georgia. I hear Savannah is up and running. Douglas is pretty good too, if you can find it.

Clay this is probally a little far but our local track South Georgia motorsports has been open since middle of Jan I have raced three days already getting some good times because of the good cool air. We have our first big braket race BTE citgo series this week test and tune on Thur then race Fri - Sun. Great track have been getting to se alot of Pro stock and Pro mod cars testing at our track so far this year.

Jones, did I see your Mach 1 in a magazine lately? Seems like maybe it was Carcraft or something.

Yeah it was in the Feb issue on page 90 I think we also showed up in the Feb issue of fastest street car. Those pics were from the NMCA race at SGMP. It was pretty cool to see the car in the mag it was always a dream now maybe when I re do the interior may be I can get a feature article. Doubt it since I race my cars every weekend so they will never be show car quality I like seeing the burnt rubber on the quarter panels. Later Bam
