Although we don’t gather around the same dinner table, the staff of Skirts and Scuffs is thankful for you – our readers. You’re part of the Skirts and Scuffs extended family and we give thanks for your faithful readership and support.
As much as we prefer the rumble of engines over the stillness of an empty track, the off-season helps us appreciate the family-oriented sport we hold dear. While we share more weekends with our loved ones, the drivers and crews devote time to their families, too.
Over the next few months, as our preparation for 2014 begins, we hope you’ll pop in to read our columns. We wish you a happy, healthy holiday and an enjoyable off-season.
