HUGE thank you to all the travelers that joined us for Dr. Speed Weekend, WCICS Rd #4! The wind really made for some inconvenient travel to and from the Island. I sincerely hope that no one missed any important work, school, or appointments due to being delayed by a full 24 hours.... The race was small this year but we had a lot of fun in a more relaxed atmosphere with all the extra time. I got a LOT of positive feedback on the unique track layout which was really great to hear. Big thanks to Craig Roberts for putting that together for us.

I also want to apologize for losing it during the drivers meeting. Jody was a great friend to all of us. He had a larger than life personality and his passing left a pretty big void in our racing community here. He would have loved to have been there racing with us this weekend. He will be dearly missed. Thank you to everyone for participating in our "moment of Metallica" in his honor.

Thanks from Team Mason to Blake and the IROCC crew for hosting another Winter Speed Weekend. We enjoyed great competitive racing and the usual expert race management we've all come to expect from this club. While last year we had some issues with a resurfaced floor creating bumps in some unfortunate spots, this year Craig went to work and came up with a layout that worked around the bumps, the result being one of the best racing tracks I've ever been on. Blueprint it and bring it back every year! It's a test piece we can all look forward to each season. It's that good.

There's a hole where Jody was, and nothing's going to fill it. It was too too early and I'm so sorry. The Metallica Minute was a good thing.

Thank you again for the effort. We'll be back!
