Ice news: Saturday was warm and sunny but we had very good ice. The Menard class was thin but Randy Zimmer came over to the dark side and ran Menards on his Rally car. Even Ed Tucker (SAAB 997) had no hope of keeping up with him.
In the first Menard open Maryanne Broda took a second place in Carl Van Kesteren's Rabbit.
Saturday night Pete Deierlein and Carl Van K. carpooled home and on Sunday, AM, were surprised to see Ed Tucker's car on the cover of the newspaper (the Elmira Star-Gazette) at a fuel stop outside of Watkins Glen.
