It’s A New Year!
(Words from The Bryants) January 1, 2013
Happy New Year everyone. 2013 is upon us and the Racing Season here at Mobile International Speedway is right around the corner. There are some changes in store for the coming year and I would like to take this opportunity to give a brief overview of what you can look forward to, here at MIS. Firstly though, we must give a big Thank You to Rick Crawford for his contributions here over the past couple of years. Rick put a tremendous amount of time and effort into MIS and many good things came from those efforts. He will forever be a friend of the local racing scene, and we wish him the best as he pursues new opportunities.
The Bryant Family has a great deal of passion for local racing along the Gulf Coast. As current tire suppliers here at MIS, and operators of 5 Flags Speedway in Pensacola, we have dedicated ourselves to making this an area that Racers and Fans alike would look forward to visiting. It is only with the support of the entire racing community that we have been able to achieve any amount of success. It is unthinkable that all of our ideas will be well received. As Racers, we sometimes have different views on the way things should be. One thing is certain, any changes we make, are in our opinion, for the long term betterment of racing.
The 2013 Schedule is now posted, and the Season will once again kick off with the 2nd Annual Mobile ARCA 200. This will be a Tommy Praytor promoted event and we will offer our full support to his efforts. Tommy will be completing the entire event schedule in the coming days, so stay tuned. Any questions concerning the ARCA weekend can be answered by calling 251-343-2929. The 2013 Rules are also now available at www.mobilespeedway.net. The track phone (251-957-2063) will still be the number to call for any non ARCA information. Some questions may be referred to Ricky Brooks(technical), Dan Spence(race procedures), or Jimmy Wiggins (scoring) for clarification.
We are excited about our newest involvement here at MIS. Ida Fields has so much pride in Mobile international Speedway, and we appreciate her confidence in the Bryant’s to help keep MIS known as one of the best short tracks in the South. There is a lot to be done in the coming weeks. We’re ready for the challenge and we hope that all of you will join us. Some exciting announcements will be forthcoming, so once again, stay tuned. Let’s work together and make 2013 something to talk about.
