It’s bout time I wrote something…
First, Welcome to the 2017 Race Season. It looks to be exciting on several fronts.
Life is always changing, some good, some… not so good. I am no different than most of you out there. There are BIG changes for me in 2017. On May 30th I retire from Rogers Communications after 38 years and 3 weeks of being a Cable Guy (My Choice). That doesn’t mean that I am not going to work anymore, it means that I will work when and where I want. There is some really cool cable/fiber optic technologies out there that I wish to pursue in the United States. That is of course if I can get the Official Trump Seal of Approval (I can make a pretty mean wall to throw me over, if that’s what it takes.)
This does affect my track photography commitments. I will not be committing to any single track for 2017. I have committed to the Outlaw Midget series, as a favour to my good friends the Bradley Family. Derek Smith ( is also a very good friend and I will help out Derek to cover several Flamboro Speedway dates, that he cannot make. I am also making a personal commitment to a Lifelong Friend who is battling Cancer and to help him “FCUK CANCER” (Did I say this right, Mike Langley?) I will be spending a few weeks in June with Brian, fishing and dragging his ass around the North Shores of Lake Superior with my ATV. I have not visited Brian in the summer for a decade or more because of my race track commitments, he needs this, more than the tracks do.
I plan on seeing some NASCAR races that I have always wanted to see but have never really had the proper time to do so. Phoenix, Texas, Vegas are but a handful.
I am a Summer/Heat person, I LOATH Winter, Snow and Ice and plan on being one of those Snowbirds. North Carolina is the planned base of operations. Why, You ask??? It is close to home if I need to get back for whatever reason. It is in the Heart of NASCAR country to visit race shops, and local grassroots tracks, both Dirt and Asphalt. If it starts to get cooler and threatens snow, it’s only about a day drive to Florida. So probably the ideal location.
Nothing is etched in stone.
CableGuy Photos wish each and every Racer a Great and Successful 2017 and hope to see many of you as possible during the year.
Please take the time to visit and support a Local race track near you. Buy a t-shirt, or souvenir. Buy a photo from a local photographer (Believe me, we don’t get rich from this) or even just a Pop & Hot Dog. When we all do this the sport will continue to survive and you will have that track to go to for years to come.
This post has been long enough, Thanks for taking the time to read this, if you got this far.
