TD BANKNORTH 250: We'll Be There, Not Here

The MotorMag is headed east this weekend for the biggest show of the year, the TD Banknorth 250 at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway, with stops at Northeastern Speedway and the New England Forest Rally (and, most likely, the Oxford Plains Fun Park for some go-kart racing) along the way.

As we're not totally up on technology's latest advancements, we're probably not going to be able to do the live-update thing, but rather we'll bring you a full recap of the weekend's events after they're over. That is, of course, unless something unexpected happens where we'll have a computer or web-accessible phone that becomes suddenly, magically available.

In the mean time, we highly recommend hanging out at Green-White-Checker and The Backstretch. Travis Barrett and Shawn Courchesne are not only buddies of ours (actually, VMM is more like the annoying younger cousin that only shows up at family reunions), they're the clear-cut leaders in northeastern short track racing coverage, and are sure to be on top of things as they happen.

But, hey, check in here every now and then, too, we might get lucky.

And by the way, thanks to all of our readers out there in the Green Mountains and beyond. According to our stat counter, these last few days have been some of the most successful that this little blog has ever seen. VMM is not quite six months old, but we're encouraged by the positive feedback we've received so far. And we've been very happy (believe it or not) to get the negative feedback, too -- it'll only make us work harder.

So thanks a lot, racers, we love ya!
