Looking ahead, and back

Recently our longtime back cover sponsor elected to give up that position. We want to give a heartfelt thanks to AR Bodies/ Aluminum Racing Products for years of dedicated support in that spot. AR Bodies still has a presence in Late Model Digest, with its banner ad over the first Track Report page and its ad in the business card section.

One advertiser grabbed the back page for the latest issue of LMD: Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola FL, which is the home track of the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco. They’re advertising the September 22 SSS finale and Allen Turner Pro Late Model finale, the last competitive Late Model races at Pensacola before the Snowball Derby. There’s a chance that LMD spot will be taken again in some future issues as we lead up to the Snowball the first weekend of December, but we’re prepared if the page remains open.

For editions where no advertiser has the last page, we’re going to insert a Flashback on the Back Page. It’ll be a look back to either past special event(s) that took place on an LMD release date’s anniversary, or an insight into what a certain racer or past short-track personality is doing now.

In this case it’s both, looking back at two winners from big races in Canada on August 23-24 (exactly 10 and 16 years ago); the winners are well-known to Late Model fans in the States. Click on the link at the bottom of this blog entry to see it. Future Flashback pages will look something like this one, perhaps with a more elaborate banner on the top.

Thank you for your support. Have a fantastic and safe Labor Day weekend, and remember to flip all the way to the back page!
