Thanks to everyone who made the trip south and it is our hope, that all of you had a safe trip back.
Our turn out was better than we hoped for, considering all the snow and ice up north.
Rex Guy and his staff had the track and the pits in perfect shape for our event. His staff was helpful and provided everything we needed. Matt the EMT did a fantastic job at the gate as well as working the track, he also watched for safety issues, as the cars went on the track.
As for the racing, it was great! We had very few bumps in the event. We had one oil down and Ron Hess drove the rear wheel off his car.
I can honestly say that I think, that everyone had as much track time as they wanted. The girls in our trailer did a brisk sale for shirts, hats and also 50/50.  They do not get enough credit for everything they do, so thanks girls, we do appreciate all of the hard work they do for the club.
Our Spring National trophies were done a little different this year.  We gave Rex Guy and his family and staff a plaque, thanking them for the great hospitality and warm welcome that we received during our event.  The oldest driver award went to Ed Daniels, who proudly claimed his trophy, boasting 82 years of age.  The board voted Phil Pete's  beautiful #3 Midget, as the Best Appearing car overall, for the event .
The longest overall distance from mailbox to race track, just for this event was Ray LeClair.  Ray traveled over 1200 miles, just to come to our Spring Nationals from his home in Spring Grove, IL.
We signed up several new members and DAARA is showing a steady rate of growth, which should lead to a great upcoming SVS season.
So thanks again to all of you for making the 2014 Spring Nationals a great success. Again, we hope that each of you made it back home safely.  Remember, be safe, have fun and support your local short tracks.  
JT Dunn
