On behalf of the entire Track Guys Team, we want to thank everyone for your support of the events we've been conducting since 2002 (SVTOA On Track, National Lightning Owners, the Ford 100th Birthday track events and even the 2008 Team Shelby / Carroll Shelby B-day event). The bottom line: we are a group of enthusiastic, sick-o Track Dawgs and believe in providing safe, fun and educational experiences for everyone who attends.

See you on track in 2009! :nice:

Sept 12 & 13, Hallett: Mark Bettin Memorial Track Event

We at Track Guys are greatly saddened by the loss of Mark Bettin, who passed away in early August from injuries sustained in a bicycling accident. Mark was a long-time Track Guys instructor, serving as an in-car instructor at numerous Texas and Oklahoma-based events. He was a hard worker who loved to share his passion for driving with each and every student he ever worked with, quick to lend a hand to a fellow driver or instructor, and generally helping out wherever he could, most of the time never being asked, just doing it.

To celebrate Mark’s life and his passion for performance driving, the September 12 & 13 Track Guys event at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit will now be run as the Mark Bettin Memorial. We have no doubt that Mark would have been instructing at this event, so, even if he isn’t with us in person, he will most certainly be with us in spirit.

Track Guys will be dedicating the raffle proceeds to Mark’s widow, Lisa; cash gifts will also be accepted. Track Guys will also give any event proceeds above the costs of the event to Lisa. And as a group, we will be doing something special at the track in Mark’s name. Please sign up, tell your friends and come out to Hallett to help us celebrate Mark’s life and passion for “go fast on the track.”

We sincerely hope to see you on track.
Jeff Lacina and the entire Track Guys staff
