    Hello Race Fans! Well race fans heres some regrettable news I never imagined that I would have to report. Due to lack of interest and support this will be the last issue of Motorcycle Racing Action that will ever be published. (Please Read On) April Fools !! Gotcha good I bet. I know thats a pretty sick April Fools joke. I contemplated whether or not I should be so bold, but I thought what the heck, lets see what happens. I hope you all enjoy reading MRA as much as we enjoy creating it. It is our way of serving the local racing community here in District 6 and the surrounding areas. Our hopes are to continue to bring you Monthly Amateur Race Coverage for many years to come. The truth is though, that the above paragraph could really appear in these pages at any given time. There are so many of you that have been 110% supportive of what we do since the day we took over. I know time flies and it can be easy to forget, just two short years ago MRA was a 12 page newslet-ter with two pictures per page. It was a great publication; it just didnt have the content that we do today. We ask that if you can support us thru a subscription, please do. That if you are a business owner or know someone that is, purchase or recommend purchasing an ad to support the sport we all love. That you as a reader do business with the advertisers in the pages of MRA. Please remember, when you head to a race or practice track or when you purchase parts or service for your bike or quad, the companies and promoters that advertise in these pages are the ones that really support your sport. Even if you cant spend any money with them at the time, tell them you saw their ad in MRA and thank them for what they do. Many times there are money saving offers in MRA, read closely and take advantage. Let the people know that MRA is something they would enjoy reading. I know the kids love it when they open the pages and see their pictures there, and without them this sport has no future. We sincerely thank all of you; MRA is strong because of you. Lets all pull together and keep it that way so we never have to hang that sign in the window, Closed!.

    Jim Bull, MRA email: mcracing@comcast.netPS: Happy Race Season
