Giving is a year-round opportunity

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Christmas, and the holiday season, is a great time of year to be reminded of how wonderful it is to give. I’m sure you experienced it before and on Christmas Day, and likely will experience it throughout the New Year. Let us all remember that the opportunity to give abounds year-round.

The holiday tradition of the giving of gifts is just one way that we show our gratitude to our God, our friends, our families and our communities for the blessings we have received.  We also manifest this by giving our time, our money and ourselves to the ones we love or those less fortunate than us.


To me, it really is the most wonderful time of the year.  I absolutely LOVE Christmastime.  Seeing the Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway property decked out in twinkling displays for Speedway in Lights each evening makes the season even better!

My Christmas spirits got a big boost on a recent Tuesday evening when I hosted the 8 PM journey of our Santa’s Sleigh.  (If you haven’t tried it, you must put it on your to-do list.  The sleigh is a 40-plus person open-air tram that takes you through Speedway in Lights.  We provide blankets, holiday music and a stop in Christmas Village – you simply enjoy the experience!) 


12 and Bristol

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

In honor of today’s date, 12-12-12, the last time we will see such a combination of month, day and year for nearly a century, we have a few interesting tidbits:


Perusing the records of racing history may be a boring endeavor to some, and even mind-numbing to others. Some, however, choose to look at names, dates and times as a snapshot of where our sport has been. Not an entire meal or even a big bite of knowledge. Sometimes the information is minimal – like the finger-food of statistics.

I’m posting this blog on Monday, Dec. 3, but I’m actually writing it on Saturday, Dec. 1, sitting aboard an Airbus A321 Jet somewhere over… hmm, Oklahoma maybe? Who knows?
