Default APBA Elections

Very soon the members of APBA will get a ballot/proxy to elect the officers
that will lead them into the future. The ballot is for the Board of
Directors and Council of APBA. The list this year is the largest in recent
memory.

I am seeking a position on the Board of Directors. I am asking all of you to
consider your support for me.

As a current racer/ and president of a club that conducts races, I have a
real feel for what is really going on in APBA and where it should go in the
future.

We need to expand the direction of APBA, particularly as it applies to the
grass roots racer and clubs. This includes the areas of promotion, marketing
and cost containment. We need to stop passing rules that in the end only
hamper the development of our sport and the involvement of new and current
racers. We must make APBA more responsive and user friendly.

As OPC Chairman during my term we stopped the loss of members and in the
second year actually gained a few over the previous year. The first time
that had happened in over 10 years.

I have dedicated a great deal of my time and resources to APBA. I now ask
for your support. Please pass this word on to your fellow drivers, crew,
officials and other APBA members.

Thank you,
Jeff Grigg
