January Hero Driver’s Journal

Furrin group presents:

A brand new year, a brand new monthly meeting!


Bear with us as we explore the creation of posts to the new web page. They might be messy, they might be missing some stuff, but some day we will succeed!

News from turk lake is currently there is 4-5 inches of good ice, If it stays cold we have the potential for an event in a couple weeks. If the ice is good we’ll run, if the ice is not good we could have breakfast and be social.

2019 is a promising year for racing. We are excited to burn some rubber and break some cones… but not any of our new ones! Membership registration is now open for the new year, don’t forget to renew before the cost goes up! Membership benefits include a discounted event rate, and a great sense of belonging. Do join us, we’re all nice people!

Look for a feature article in next month’s newsletter!
