    I don't think there's too much turnover in sprint seats in PA, really. Leppo is the big one this year and that's likely a big upgrade for him and well deserved. Rahmer and Hodnett had some changes recently due to owner retirement, but most of the other cars in PA have who you expect to find in them.

    The bigger change is watching all these former WoO guys coming to PA to race weekly. Danny Lasoski is apparently going to be a PA regular now! How crazy is that?

    Just like back in the good old days when drivers like Dub and Van May, Kenny Weld, Jan Opperman, Steve Smith, Doug Wolfgang and Bobby Davis all came to central PA to race weekly.

    You can race three nights a week and be asleep in your own bed before 1 am most of the time.

    Drivers in other regions must be insanely jealous..

    He won a race I worked many years ago. In victory lane he was far more interested in the Trophy Girls than he was in having more pictures taken. Funny guy

    BigWheelHawaii, It just a little tweeking in photoshop to take a RAW digital image and convert it into a B&W photo.
