Questions and Comments
Hi all,
With the new season approaching I thought, I write about preparation for 2018. Below is a check list of pre-season items, this may not have hit on every item but, I tried to group things in a helpful check list.

We are currently gearing up for 2018 racing and show season and last night Feb. 10th 2018. We attended the Mason Dixon Racers Dinner hosted by the owners of the track Elmer & Cathy. It was a very nice affair with plenty of food and a cash bar. It was great to sit and relax will fellow racers and just talk about the new season.

No major changes are scheduled on the car for 2018 but, hope to race more in 2018. We had some unexpected repairs to the tow vehicle in 2017 that took us out of a lot of racing in mid-summer. Our first show; AACA March 10th at Howard County Fairgrounds, MD.
We are continuing to look for sponsors for the 2018 racing season and beyond. So, if your looking for a unique way to advertise your products and services call Boteler Racing, 410.236.3715                     Think of us as; "Your Promotional Marketing Arm".

Well see ya soon!

Inspect - suspension and brakes for worn parts - to ensure there in good working order
Check - SFI dates and chassis certification date - make sure it has not expired
Inspect (harness belts, helmets, neck collar, neck braces, uniform, gloves) Make sure their not expired, torn, or ripped) remember you have them to protect you so make sure their OK. Current date for helmets are SA2015. SA2010 are still good till 2022
Battery maintenance - it's best to keep a trickle charge on the battery through the off season. I see so many racers replacing their battery in the spring because not properly maintaining it.
Inspect Fuel System - If you run alky you should have now drained the system. Alky is a great fuel but, it attracts moister which corrodes the fuel system.  
Inspect - tow vehicle & trailer (brakes, tires, suspension, etc) including supporting equipment. eg: tie down straps, pit vehicle, generator, air compressor. This would be an excellent time to make any repairs or upgrades.
Updates - It's great to update your car. But, before you do ask yourself what do I need to accomplish? And will this update provide the solution or make a issue worse? Spend your funds wisely, spend it where it will do the most good. PS: Safety should always be 1st.
Your Sponsors - Have you taken care of your sponsor? Are they onboard this year? What can YOU do to improve the relationship. Remember it's not just the win/loss column but, did you contribute to the sponsors bottom line, ROI (Return on Investment).
Practice - I actually sit in the car and go over staging and making a run. This keeps it fresh in your head and prepares you for the season.
