Racing Against Leukemia - Take Two

- by Paul Zahornasky

A second look at RAL weekend from a different perspective. Have a story from RAL weekend that you want to share - email it to marketing@ner.org

Racing Against Leukemia weekend – the one weekend where, if you schedule things right, you could participate in all three of our programs’ activities: Club Racing, Solo (two days), DoubleCross, Rally, and RallyCross. I don’t think we had anyone that managed to do this, but, you could (and if you did, please contact me as I’ll change this.)

Racing Against Leukemia Recap -

- by Doug Fisher

RAL/NER Charities Weekend as a huge success and was a great example of the generosity and enthusiasm of many NER members for our annual fundraising endeavor. The accounting of all monies raised is not totally finished, but it is clear that the combined (Solo, Club Racing, Rally/RallyX) funds raised will be over $17K this year, which trounces the $14K figure from last year.

Cone-a-thon - Solo Event #6 - (The only cone I wanted after this event had ice cream in it)

The theme of Solo Event #6 was ‘Hot’. As in hot drivers, hot tires, a hot course, and it was just plain HOT.

166 drivers (just 41 less than the National Tour) showed up for Cone-a-Thon, New England Region’s 6th point’s event of the year. They were treated to a course that would not have looked out of place at the National Tour, temps in the high 80’s that had many drivers scrambling for the watersprayers , and 5 sixty second runs that had the fast drivers at the top of second gear.

New England Region to Host Racing Against Leukemia/NER Charities Weekend August 4 & 5

With August fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about how we can raise the most money possible for the charities we are supporting. The Aug. 4-5 weekend should give everyone plenty of choices.

There will be Road Racing, Rally and Solo. All groups will be selling RAL 2012 decals, Breast Cancer decals and cozy’s and Raffle tickets. Look for them at registration and throughout the weekend.

We are also offering the much in demand Hot Laps on the track during lunch Sat. & hopefully Sun.

Time permitting, there will be track rides at day’s end Sat.

Racing Against Leukemia 2012 - a letter from Danielle Moehring

Hi ! My name is Danielle Moehring and I welcome you to a fantastic weekend of Racing against Leukemia.

I was diagnosed with Leukemia in 1989 at 3 years of age and was treated at UMass Medical Center in Worcester Massachusetts and Boston’s Children’s Hospital.

Tidbits From the Northeast National Solo Tour at Devens

CourseWalk Tour.jpg

210 drivers, from 14 different States and 3 Canadian Provinces showed up for the Northeast National Tour at Moore Airfield in Devens, MA. The weather was superb, starting off in the 50’s each morning and progressing into the 70’s by late afternoon.

Instead of the usual event write up, I thought I’d offer some random thoughts, ideas, and events:

Memorial Day Weekend Message from NER Director

Message from NER Director:

I would like to wish all NER SCCA members an enjoyable and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Special thanks go out our members who have or are serving in the Armed Forces. We should also honor many SCCA members who were Veterans and have passed on and now occupy our history books. I feel that SCCA has deep roots with the military.

Springtime Coneage - Event #3 Recap

Springtime Coneage – Event #3 certainly lived up to its name. With at least 474 cones hit (results do not show cones on DNF runs), corner workers got a good workout at our third event. With 148 drivers that cone count averages 3.2 cones per driver, and a cone being hit on more than half the runs.
