As I write this column it seems like forever since I put my last article together. As with most people around here, life gets exponentially busier as the snow goes away. It seems as though kids’ soccer games, yard clean up, getting the race car ready, and the start of a new racing season all seem to begin at the same time. Add to that the fact that my family and I moved into a new house over the last month, and it’s like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done that needs to be done. It’s a time of transition for me, as we exchanged our smaller, country house with a pole barn for a larger, subdivision house with a 3 stall garage. It is still roomy enough for my stuff, but just a little bit different setting. Even though we were still getting settled, I did find time to prep the Bronco for the upcoming race season and even attend a couple of events already.

Atoka June 9 Race RecapHot and humid conditions followed by rain at the conclusion of time trials forced racers make some hard decisions on what to dial at Atoka Motorsports Park's June 9 event. The Peewee class was getting ready to run their first round of eliminations when the wind picked up to around 30-50 mph and a rain storm hit the track. The hour long rain storm ended and track owner Cecil Wilson immediately got to work on the track. He was able to get the track back into shape which provided great racing action for the rest of the event.

There are two words to describe the first month of racing here in the Ohio / Indiana area; hot and dry. In past years it’s been very rare to get through the month of May without any races being rained out. In fact, I typically don’t even get motivated to hit the track until Memorial Day weekend because of the rain-outs. However, this year has been different. It’s been great to get the track early but it’s also been tough on the promoters due to the overall dry condition of the track. It’s nearly impossible to keep an adequate amount of water on the tracks and in the pits. Making a consistent track is difficult at best.
