You absolutely said exactly how this started Dave.... This is a venue that
is about the true heroes of motor sports.... and The Ink is in fact a side
light to the opportunity to High light one of the successful racers of our

You can't miss the fact that this isn't something that would be taken on as
a weekend project like rebuilding a carb or something... it will take a
year or two of dedicated effort.... Personally I am not willing to do that
simply to publicize the sport.... However.... I also know that without
public relations the sport will not grow....

It's funny I asked John Beckett here a couple of months ago... if in fact
it was his intent to grow the ECTA.... I mean was that a goal of the
organization....Growth isn't always good... you have to evaluate the big
picture along the way....

Don't worry about flaming me.... I truly enjoy the fact that we have
different opinions on this or any subject... if we had the same opinion ...
one of us wouldn't be necessary.... and I do appreciate the honesty and
ability to speak your mind....
