A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER AND EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Welcome back y’all! It’s great to see all of you again after having to abruptly terminate Volume 1 of Monthly Motorsport News. It’s great to be back after being away for the past five months while I had some personal issues to take care of. That time away has given me a chance to consider how to make Monthly Motorsport News better than it was last year. This year, I will be writing some new monthly articles in each issue. Along with the continuation of A Champion’s Story and Pre-War Glory, I will have a new monthly article about championship team owners. Also, at the end of every issue, I will debut a feature called YouTube Top Six. YouTube Top Six will list my six favorite motorsports videos that I discovered on YouTube in the previous month. The videos will all be amateur videos and not of any previous telecasts as I do not condone copyright infringement. Along with the above features, I will also write some additional articles in some editions. Hopefully, the new articles, along with the previous ones, will enhance the reading experience for Monthly Motorsport News. In addition to the new articles, I have also included new motorsports championships to cover in Monthly Motorsport News. A lot of those new championships are dirt track championships and Southern championships as I attend a lot of dirt track races here in my home state of Georgia. Also, I included a few more international championships, including the International V8 Supercar Championship as they will be holding a race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin this May. I wish that I could go to that race this year, but I won’t be able to this year. I will reveal my “travel race” in next month’s issue. I wish all of y’all a great 2013. I hope that it is filled with many great experiences at the races. See y’all at the races! Keith Laney, Founder and Editor-In-Chief Monthly Motorsport News
