Spring is what Im looking for, some nice bright 60 degree days. Hopefully by the time you are reading this, spring will be upon us. As Im sitting here writing this, it is still very cold and windy and its even snowing. Winter came late this year but none the less it made an appear-ance. Anyhow, lets get on with the race season. Motorama is behind us and featured within this issue. We also braved the elements for Round # 1 of the PA State Hare Scramble Series in early February. What a success, over 350 racers came out to battle the ice and the Dutchmen course. Things are looking great as we move into the new year. There are a ton of races that you can attend this year and Ive heard that a few of the local tracks have made some awesome course changes. As usual MRA will be out each and every weekend at a track near you. Watch for our camera and be sure to check our website Mondays by noon to catch all of the weekends racing action. Also, coming soon at www.mcracin-gaction.com youll be able to place classified ads both online and in print. What better way to reach the racers than to advertise your merchandise with MRA. As Always, we thank you for reading MRA. Please remember as we move through the year to support the advertisers in our pages. You can find most anything you need to have a successful race season right here in MRA. I would also like to give a special thanks to our paid subscribers. Thanks to you, MRA continues to be strong and we can move into the future. Until next time.
