Happy Easter

This weekend's holiday gives the Cup guys their first break of the season as they gear up for Martinsville. Locally, two short tracks are preparing for the start of their seasons with testing coming up. Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway near Impreial and Motordrome Speedway in Smithton each will hold pre-season test sessions March 29.

The Whelen All-American Series cars hit Motordrome's paved track April 4 to begin the 22-race schedule with two additional 100-lap events sprinkled in during the summer. The dirt track season at PPMS begins the following night on April 5.

I hope to post season previews for both tracks later this week. Any comments or suggestions on what kind of local racing coverage you would like to see on this blog would be appreciated.
