Thanks to Ernie Pothier for this photo. I chased Shawn Pierce #21 for a bunch of laps before finally getting by. I had to use up as much track on the inside as possible, the drop is about 8″, it was most important not to fall off the edge.
With Nova Scotia Covid restrictions higher now than earlier in 2021, and all borders locked down for travelers, it looks like we won’t be racing until July, possibly late June. I’m thinking the Government will set Canada’s birthday, July 1st, as a present for the 97% of the people in Nova Scotia that don’t have Covid. It will be a great ease of stress for the communities to finally get out of the restrictions, especially the small businesses.
In the southern US, racing and other sports are back to normal, and no spreading of the virus, hopefully we will be soon.
Our car is ready, just lettering left to do.
If we don’t start racing for 7 weeks that will give more teams time to get ready. In order for us to race, it will depend on the # of fans allowed to watch a race event. Most race tracks can’t open with 50 fans. Last July some New Brunswick tracks were fairly full by late July. In Nova Scotia, racing didn’t start until September because fan limits were set at 250 in the summer. By the fall NS was allowed 1250, still far too low to justify racing with the Maritime Pro Stock Tour, the top Late Model series in the Maritimes.
I’m hoping we get at least 8 races again in 2021 and then see this virus gone before the winter….for good. We will then see the common cold and influenza back as it usually is in the winter.
Hope everyone is well, pray for our country to be free, people to be safe and small businesses to get back to work.
