As we near press time, we are awaiting a February snowstorm. Even more exciting, we are awaiting a reopening of restaurants from this pandemic deep freeze. Finally, again weary travelers will have places where they can come in off the road for a hot meal. You be sure and let me know how that all worked out, okay?
We are also awaiting speed weeks at Daytona. NASCAR will be starting their 2021 season anew. Will they have packed grandstands this year? Here is something else interesting, eNASCAR will be starting their second season of iRacing. The 2021, 10 race season will feature a fresh new look. Maybe more sanitized? Perhaps keeping the drivers more PC in their outbursts while in the heat of competition?
In some gentler news from Daytona, we see that three women are being nominated this year to the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. In related news we will be seeing the introduction of an all women team to the NTT Indycar Series this year. Always good to see this kind of representation from the female persuasion. Next, in the face of all this excitement, we must report the demise of a couple more speedways. Concord Speedway in North Carolina and Texas World Speedway are being torn down for better things.
With that being said, during this time of such intense political turmoil in our nation – here is to an exciting and covid-free 2021 roddin’ and racin’ season in the Northwest and everywhere else.
Nuff said. Chuck Fasst. #GearHeadsWorld
