BEVRA held it’s annual fall meeting at the stylish and exotic Pitcher Perfect Excavating man cave Friday night October 28th.
Topics discussed were new track layout, rising costs, the upcoming BEVRA SuperMod National race in late Feb. and the upcoming 20th Anniversary Season and the upcoming BEVRA online store to buy special 20th Anniversary swag.
We kicked off the meeting with discussion of the new track layout. As many know, the track location needed to be moved as the Pitchers pit has grown in size over the last two years. Originally the plans were to move the track into the pit, but after some measuring, it was found to be bit smaller and with rising fuel costs, it would be better to move the track location in the field for this season. Track will be a bit bigger than last year and just as wide. Bill Kerkstra explained that we would be going to safety lights in the corners to replace flagmen. That will allow for instant cautions or red flag situations to instantly be noted on the track, and improve our already good safety program and record. Mark Pitcher and his crew have invested a lot of time and cost in building this new track for BEVRA to race on. It’s going to be a great racing surface and we surely do appreciate the effort!
Max Fahling discussed awards and that we are planning something special for the 20th Anniversary Season. Stay tuned for more on the awards!
President Jon Butler gave the club a quick rundown on the costs of last season as everything increased, but the club has a good start for the upcoming season.
Alex Manga discussed that the purse for the Great Lakes Super Mod Nationals is growing with top notch sponsors like Wahl Bros. Woody’s, Monster Energy and newest sponsor, Dr. Tess Gordon’s Womens Health Express web based practice. This will be huge event for BEVRA and details will be posted soon.
Finally, the BEVRA online store will be going live in a few days. Rocci Kerkstra explained that BEVRA will have hoodies, hats, beanies, and other stylish goodies, going to a web store allows for smaller buy quantities so we can offer more products!! You can order online and you will be able to pick up your order at the track. The store will be open a limited time, so don’t miss out.
The BEVRA Board of Directors is excited for the upcoming season! Stay tuned for exciting updates as we get closer to the season!
