GRRR will be just fine. Tony and Jay will do a great job. Tony and Jay, both, have a lot of experience in running a series. Things will be good.

If Jay Guard is going to be involved, you can be sure it will be done right. Even if he has to put up with Tony! LOL...

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Where did/is Grant move to? I heard about Doc going back to OH several days ago, but I hadn't seen anything about Grant before now.

Answer to post number 7?

You would think someone would know.

Or did he have a dust up with the Florida mob, and is going into witness protection? LOL.

Awesome, maybe I'll see him in the future.

Thanks for the info, Doc.

Have a safe trip to Ohio.

Yes, it's true, I am moving to Indiana.
 
Long story short, I got divorced and moving to be closer to my daughter. I will be traveling back to Florida frequently, so I hope to make at least a few events throughout the year. I will be at Ed's next weekend and look forward to seeing everyone.
 
I will be moving mid-October, so this will be my last race down here for a little while.

Sorry to hear of the circumstances.

 

What part of Indiana are you moving to?

Grant,

 

It’ll be good to see you one more time at the Southern Retro Rumble before you head north. And I know I do not speak for only myself, but for all the FL racers and all the visiting “northern” (anything above the FL-GA line) racers in saying…

 

THANKS!

 

… for all your effort and work keeping the GRRR series running for all these years. No doubt Marty would be smiling down at you. All the best to you in everything.

 

Rick / CMF3
