Well, it's finally here... 2017... I must admit that I'm stepping into this New Year thing a bit skeptical of our world's collective future. Seeing thousands of heavily armed police, garbage truck barricades, and multiple search and frisk checkpoints as part of the Time Square New Year's "celebration", does make one wonder if as a world community, if we're really moving forward, or if we're simply digressing into a far more depressing state of imbecilic war-torn international affairs... And I'm awful sorry to hear about our friends in Istanbul getting blown up last night... What the heck is going on?!?... But all that said, I do want to leave you with positive thoughts. At least I believe as a drag racing community, we're making strides towards a hopeful future for our beloved brand of straightline motorsport. I'd like to show my appreciation for all the hardworking race teams who helped make the 2016 season a whole lot of exciting competitive fun... And let's raise our glass, and make a New Year's toast, in optimistic hope that we'll be enjoying the drag racing scene just as much in this New Year of 2017... Thanks to all of my readers who have built and brought their cars out to the strip to give us a nifty show... And thanks to all my many readers who serve as the enthusiastic fans of drag racing... And in closing, for those of you who follow my music thing, and keep writing me, asking if the new Big Stick album will finally be released in 2017, the answer is a resounding YES!!... Please be good to each other in this New Year, and try to remember the things in life that are REALLY most important to attain true happiness and peace of mind... Be smart in 2017...
