Just a heads up. The 2021 GRS season schedule is now posted. These dates may change as New York State policy changes. If we have spectators then there will be Stock Car racing at NYIRP. If Stock car racing is again cancelled by State limits on spectators, some of these dates may change. As of this posting the dates posted on our “Schedule” page are what is set for now. We will be having a GRS Drivers meeting in March. Check back for time and place.
This is wishing all of our members, past and present a happy and joyous New Year. 2021 has got to be better than 2020. We will be having a spring drivers meeting in the coming months. The time and place will be determined by how things are progressing with shut downs. So until then, stay warm and safe. The Gasser Racing Series BOD.
We have come to a close of another season of racing. Time to look towards next year. Jr & Karen Grzybowski have decided to step down from their board positions. We would like to thank them for their time as GRS Board members. As of this letter, we have members who have stepped forward to volunteer their time to fill these two positions. Unfortunately we are still in need of a Promotions Director. The main duty of this position is responsible for obtaining sponsors to help offset the cost of racing and doing business. This is a one year job with long hours and little (no) pay. As with all the Board positions, you have to be a GRS member in good standing. The full job description is spelled out in our By-Laws. Anyone who would be interested in this position should contact the GRS at firstname.lastname@example.org. If more than one member applies, then a vote will be taken from current members.
Please contact us. Thanks, The GRS Board
One of our good friends and fellow racers (Brian Kresman) lost his father this past weekend. William (Bill) Kresman was a young 101. He was a WWII veteran and a lifetime resident of Niagara Falls. Details are at Rhoneyfuneralhome.com. Our condolences to Brian, Lisa & Family
The GRS Board and Members
We finally closed out this crazy year, and thanks to Vito and his crew on Saturday, October 24th, we had a small awards ceremony in front of the Winners Circle area at NYIRP. (Pictures at Winners Circle on our website) It was cool and cloudy but with our great members we made the best of the situation. Looking forward to next year in hopes of a better year where there are spectators in the stands. Our Gasser class had a better race day car count than last year even in these uncertain times. Art Misuraca showed up with his “Art for President” campaign button and is running for President. Most agreed that he is “NOT” old enough. Overall we made the best out of a strange year. No spectators or Banquet but our members are resilient and together we got through this. Until next year, be safe and start looking forward to more racing in 2021.
Thanks, GRS Board of Directors.
