Evidentally if you are on this board, you love racing. Tell me, what track makes you feel the most welcome and appreciated for being there?? Is there one person at your track that goes all out and makes you feel needed and appreciated?? Are the ticket people friendly to you and the back gate people?? Do they concession stand people greet you with a smile?? Does the General Manager come around and say hello to you if you are a driver??
These are not hard questions but HONEST questions. Is there someone at your local track that goes out more and makes a bigger effort to make you feel special?? Or have you had a bad experience at a track which turned you off from ever going there again??
I have been to many tracks over the years but I will admit that Joe, the announcer at Volusia, made me feel more special and appreciated being there than anyone. The first night I went there, just to show Tonya what I could do to help them, Joe made an announcement that I was there and would be writing that night and how happy he was that I was there. He made me feel very welcome since I was an asphalt girl and really had not been around dirt that much. But he took that extra step to make me feel welcome and it worked. I love being there and working with Joe, Tonya, Shelley, Jeff and all the staff. They always greet you with a smile and how was your week and that is really, really nice. And I love the hugs I get when I go back to Orlando or New Smyrna and see my old friends. But now it is your turn, be honest and start WRITING.
