Marks Observations-
Nice to see 21 racers in attendance a season high.  A very competitive night of racing with 11 racers scoring segment wins including his first ever for Dave Fitzgerald.  Congrats to Dave who has been showing improvement all the time.  Scott reported no boundary issues which must have been because everybody was on their best behavior due to Santa watching.  Heard Santa may have been in attendance undercover.  Bill?????  Cory Reinhard had a tough night but had the least amount of falloffs with just 2 in 102 plus laps.  The top ten finishers were about 6 laps apart which is very close racing.  Nick Wummer made his second appearance and says he should be in for a few more weeks.  Glad to have him.  Beard racing had three competitive cars in the field, but only Eric picked up a segment win this week.
