Exclamation SSSSA Races For 2019

I will be having a radical back surgery on March 28th. Because we operate with such a skeleton staff we have decided to put all races on hold until I can fulfill my duties with the Association. My surgeon is estimating 6+ months, and 12 months+ to race again. He says racing is iffy but i will prove him wrong!!!

Exclamation Re: SSSSA Races For 2019

Finally got out of the hospital. Went in the 28th and got out the 30th. Had to go back the 1st due to complications and extreme pain. I'm back out and on some good drugs. I feel as if I was literally run over by a semi! I go back to see my surgeon in a couple of days and will get an update on how everything went and what to expect in the future. Thanks for the calls and emails. I have had my ringer off but I know who has called and mailed me. We are family! More to come. Jim

Exclamation Re: SSSSA Races For 2019

Well it's been one month since my surgery. I have graduated from a walker to a nice little cane for walking assistance. Still a little unsteady but getting better all the time. Pain level has gone down and getting up and down is easier now. I gotta tell you guys this is a real pain in the ***!

Now, I had a conversation with the Wards yesterday and we are working with OSW for some dates for races that you guys will actually show up for. I realize it's gradually getting into the hottest time of the year and most of our racers are getting older and not so accepting of the heat. Believe me I'm one of them and I understand! There is a reason Division 2 doesn't race during the summer months!


Here's a question for you guys. What months would you like to race? I'm remembering our very first race was in May at Lakeland Dragway 11 years ago. You can answer here or email or call me. Jim

How about SGMP same weekend as their Mopar race? As I recall the turnout wasn’t too bad the year you did it there.

And great to hear you’re recovering.

I am good with any months. I work in the heat everyday so that is not an issue for me. Hopefully the schedule can be worked out so it does not conflict with the D-2 points and national open dates. 2 week separation from those events would be preferable to me.
Glad to hear that your recovery is progressing.
