Mahoning Valley's F&C Chief, Glenn Miller, was tragically killed at the Neohio Driver School on May 15. Glenn and his family have been members for years and at one time or another all have been corner workers.

Glenn was always ready to help out in anyway he could at our events and contributed articles to TRACK. He will be greatly missed.

God Speed Glenn.

We just had one of our biggest events in recent history.

We had 185 drivers. The weather co-operated. Nobody got stuck in the mud and the temperatures never dropped below 50 degrees during the day. Actually it was in the 60's or mid 70's most of the time.

The racing was great and there were no serious incidents. Everyone enjoyed the party on Saturday night. Strip steaks were served along with the ususal Killilans Red and Coors Light beer. Wine & pop were also available.

Mahoning Valley drivers did very well.
