It's only 88 days until the party and 90 days until The Mile!

I'm starting to get really pumped up!

Will Harley have their XG competitive? How about Brian Smith's Kawasaki? And what about the new KTMs? And JD Beach looked pretty good on that Yamaha, last year at Daytona. I wonder if he's going to be in the mix. This could be a very exciting season!

The Daytona TT will be streamed live at:

www.fanschoice.tv

Practice and qualifying start at 1:00 PM and the Opening Ceremonies for racing will be at 7:00 PM this Thursday, March 14.

I'd tell you all just how much I'm looking forward to watching it, but I think you already know.

Just to keep it in focus; Labor Day weekend is coming. There's going to be two Miles - the rescheduled race from May and the regular Labor Day Weekend Mile plus a Short Track Singles National. As it gets closer, I'll post up more information.

Just to put the caliber of racers into perspective; in 2009, I went to the Moto GP races in Indianapolis and the Indy Mile that was being held on Saturday night. Kenny Roberts took the TZ 750 Flat Tracker that Doug Schwerma out for a couple of "Parade" laps. Roberts went right up by the haybales and blasted around the track at a very high rate of speed with the bike sideways. Afterwards, the guy calling the race asked Valentino Rossi if he wanted to take the TZ out for a lap and Rossi refused. His comment was that someone should build a Mile dirt track in Italy.

Marc Marquez was beaten on a short track at the Superprestigio by Brad Baker. While some folks sneer at the lowly Flat Trackers, I've known of several Flat Trackers who went on to win Roadracing championships, I know of no Road racers who won a Dirt Track National, unless they had been dirt trackers previously. The racers in the Main Event at Springfield are some of the most skillful motorcycle racers on the planet. If you don't believe me, just ask Troy Bayless.

OK, kids; If you're planning to attend the rescheduled Springfield Mile on Saturday, August 31, here's a little more information.

The Short Track has been rescheduled and is going to run on Friday night, Aug. 30. It's held in the same arena that the TT was in. The May Mile will be on Saturday and the Labor Day Weekend Mile will be on Sunday.

If you've never been to the Mile, you're in for a treat. The heat races can be exciting, but the 25 lap Main goes way beyond what you'll see in the Heat races. I'm really hoping for sunny weather for the whole weekend.

If you're planning to attend the Sunday race and don't have a ticket, I suggest you buy one pretty soon. The seats are already selling and section NN is starting to fill up. As usual, I'm sitting in Section NN Row 1 Seat 1 (I bought my tickets a long while ago).

I was pretty disappointed in the Route 66 Motel, and I'm going to be tent camping at the campground in the fairgrounds. I think Ourdee and I are sharing a campsite with electric, and there will probably be room for another tent or two. If a few people want to camp, we can get a couple of sites and split the cost. It's (I think) $25/00 per night for a site w/elec. That beats the hell out of what the motels are charging.

Anyhow, I just thought I'd let everybody know.
