Hello INR Members and Fellow Racers!

One could say that it is currently a bit chilly out!  As I type this the temperature is in the single digits and will be for the next few days.  I certainly hope everyone is staying warm!  Just a few weeks ago, we celebrated our 2014 awards banquet and presented plenty of trophies and recognized several drivers and members for their contribution to another successful year!  Thank you to all those that joined us to congratulate everyone's accomplishments!  With the 2014 Awards banquet behind us, it's time to start thinking about the 2015 season. We have a tentative schedule in the works that is waiting for final approval from the casino.  Pencil in April 12th for the first solo event at Majestic Star Casino.  Keep your eye out on our website for the finalized official schedule!

To date, we have solidified a two day event at Grissom Air base on June 6th & 7th!

Regarding our membership meetings, we will resume our normal membership meeting schedule of the 3rd Thursday of the month at Schoops on February 19th, 2015.  

As always, keep tabs on INR events through our Facebook page, newsletters and membership meetings.

Dirty Dozen
Each year, attendees of our events and meetings have the opportunity earn points towards our Dirty Dozen award. The points vary based on events and work performed such as registration, timing, grid, etc. Attending other clubs events, road racing or helping at road race events also count towards the award. At the end of the year, the INR members with the top twelve highest points earn the club's recognition for their efforts as well as other gifts. 

Recently, the INR BOD decided that the dirty dozen should only apply to non-board members in order to recognize those who contributed to the continued success of our club.

We don't want to forget about those members that contribute to the Road Racing program.  Stay tuned for a newly minted award for Road Race participants!

1. James Rose: 750
