Dear loyal readers, If you are surprised to see us, it is great to see you again, too. Mid-American Auto Racing News has been part of our regionís racing heritage for 40 years. Before the Internet, and before the mainstream mediaís acknowledgment of auto racing as a genuine sport, this weekly newspaper was here for us. It was our source for our regionís special brand of short track auto racing. It was our source for news, race results, advertising of upcoming races and entertainment. We loved our racing, and we gave it a weekly hug by spending sometime absorbing it all through this special newspaper. Like you, when we learned of the paperís shutdown, we didnít want to say goodbye to the old friend that Mid-American Auto Racing News is to thousands of us here in the Midwest. Just a few weeks ago, with the help of the family of the late publisher Nancy Hatch, we signed on as the new owners of Mid-American Auto Racing News. We are grateful to the Hatch family, and the Cole family before them, for their years of service to short track racing through this newspaper. And we would be totally remiss if we didn't mention the service and dedication of Sue Cass. For over 30 years Sue has always been there doing whatever was needed to keep Mid-American the number 1 trade publication in the midwest. She has sure earned her retirement but we hope she won't be too upset with us if we have to lean on her for her knowledge and expertise once in a while. We may be new owners, but like this paper, weíve been part of the sport for decades as track and event promoters. We grew up with Mid-American Auto Racing News, too. Ashley Maxwell is our new Editor. Sheíll lead this paper to add more chapters to its wonderful history. And all of us know that each of us who is a part of short track racing Ė promoters, fans, drivers, engine builders, mechanics, team members Ė weíre all a part of this sport because we love it. Sincerely, Dean and Jane Miracle, Carl Short, and Ashley Maxwell

Dave,

I posted that last year while employed by Dean and Jane Miracle. As I no longer work for them, i have no idea about the status of the Mid-American. Your best bet would be to contact the Miracles directly. Good luck!.

Ya, Goodluck. I don't think we'll see another MidAmerican printed.

I didn't see the date. I thought it was posted a couple of days ago.
