Hello everybody! I hope you all had a nice Christmas, however you decided to spend it.

I am personally very much ready to welcome 2018 and start a fresh new year. If anyone is looking for something to do on New Year’s Eve, I’d like to personally invite you to The Pines in Cadillac. We will have live entertainment and a great atmosphere to ring in the new year.

Since we’re in the midst of the holiday season, I just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year. Soon, I will be sharing some thoughts on a few big pieces pertaining to Merritt and racing in Michigan. Some items include the Mini Wedge class, points payout compared to weekly increased purse money and a variety of other subjects.

Thank you everyone for your support this past year. I hope you all have a great finish to 2017 and I look forward to good times in 2018! Until then,

Michael Blackmer
