As we were in the middle of driver introductions this past Saturday, a group of kids held up a banner that read �Go Danny�.  They were excited and waved it with enthusiasm as their favorite driver was introduced.  The kids were really having �Fun�.  It got me to thinking�we need more �Fun�, so fans in the stands it�s your turn.  This Saturday night you need to bring home-made signs to the track.  Late model, grand stock, mini or speedway; it doesn�t matter.  I�ve got some t-shirts and Popeye�s Chicken certificates and of course some X1-R lubricant to give away.  Remember to be polite with your signs and don�t block anyone�s view during the races but wave �em like heck during introductions and victory lane.  Race teams:  if you have a loyal group of fans in the stands, get them some t-shirts or hats this week, your sponsor will love you for it. 

I was thinking about all of this on the  way home Saturday night.  The races had been highly competitive and the fans seemed to really get into it.  Race fans come to the race track to watch great racing and cheer for their favorite, that�s called having �Fun� at the race track.  Whether your driver is running second or 11th you want him (or her) to pass just one more car.  �Fun� should be the main objective when you come to watch a night of racing.  Actually, �Fun� should also be the objective when you come to race at the race track.  Don�t get me wrong, racing is serious business with lots of money involved and sometimes; despite someone�s best intentions, you�re just not going to have a �Fun� night.  But, if you come hoping to have a little �Fun� you�re much more likely to end up doing so.

So race fans; let�s help our drivers and crews have a little more �Fun� this weekend.  Let�s see some signs and banners.  Drivers and crews; let�s have some �Fun� this weekend, the rest of the stuff will take care of itself.  Maybe this all seems a bit na�ve, but I say let�s give it a try anyway; worse case scenario�we have a little �Fun�.
