Last week the Eagles Fan Club at Oswego Speedway had a “payout party” , to distribute the money that the Eagles had collected during the racing season. The Eagles Fan Club board works VERY hard to organize fundraisers and collect cash to promote the drivers and owners of the supermodifieds and small block supermodifieds at Oswego Speedway, and also raise capital for an injured drivers fund. Hats off to president Larry Lee, Vice President: Jason Kingsley, Vice President: Shirley Letcher, Secretary: Debbie White, Treasurer: Mike Foster, Internet Coordinator: Sue Delong, and Sue and Jessica Lee for all of your efforts. It’s really amazing what all of you do for the good of others.
As an owner of a small block supermodified, I received a check in the amount of $565 for supporting the division. It’s not a points deal or a results award. The Eagles distribute their fund just for supporting the division. Show up, be a member, support racing and the Eagles, and we’ll give you back ALL of the money that we collect for you.
So what to do with the $565 that the Eagles collected for ME? I’ve got a lot of bills, like anyone. Christmas is coming, I could use it for that. I’ve got credit card bills like crazy. Five hundo could take me and the Missus on an excellent weekend getaway. Hey - I would really love some new Oakleys or a sweet new pair of kicks.
Nope - that’s RACECAR money. These folks busted their humps all year, walking through the pits, sitting at tables while others were relaxing, beating the bushes and making phone calls for one reason: to PROMOTE RACING AT OSWEGO SPEEDWAY. They didn’t do all of that work so I could get some cool new shades. They did that so that every driver can race more. That’s the ONLY reason. So more people can do more racing more often.
So that 565 clams goes aside. I’ll save it to buy something for my racecar. Parts, supplies, tires for when I race in 2011. Most importantly: I may race more than I planned to in 2011 BECAUSE of the Eagles cash! That’s what I’m doing with my Eagles point fund money, And I hope you do, also. And don’t forget to lay huge thank-yous on all of the above mentioned members of the Eagles board.
