WHAT A TOUGH DAY FOR RIDERS, PIT AREAS AND SCORE KEEPERS! Why is it that the past few years its been hard to have a decent day at Steel City with out rain or mud. We just can't seem to catch a break here lately. There was no rain today but the rain and the preparation earlier in the week proved to be more than the spring dirt could handle. Mud or muck was everywhere. Practice was tuff and motos where extremely tuff. These elements did not stop the strong at heart and body take to the track for 10 minute motos. Getting thru the first round of motos had riders down everywhere. Dozers kept busy trying to get the track better but it just didn't want to tack up. Just a note here, Mike Mcdade didn't seem to have any problems all around the track. Anyway back to the "Battle against the mud". After watching the first rounds and trying to take pictures of the warriors my heart was very heavy watching the 2nd motos begin. The 250 A&B class was up again and riders where struggling everywhere. This isn't how this group of riders attack any track, with all of their experience and talent it really had me upset.

I have a little of this and that to put up for now on our blogs.

SPRING SERIES RND 1

AWESOME START OF THE SEASON

What a wonderful day at PRP yesterday. If you were not there you missed out on a fantastic start to an up and coming racing season. The track was awesome and the riders haven't missed a beat from last season. So good seeing everyone again. Nice to see Eric Hamilton back out racing along with Alex Rick, Bob Greiner and Jason McConnell back from injuries. Dennis and his crew had the track ready for racing. Again what a beautiful track.

OKAY, Ihave been fooling around with some old slide shows that I put together back in 2006. One has Darryn Durham with a great group of A riders at Pleasure Valley, July 16th. Darryn has a sweatshirt and I would say that he was getting ready for the heat and humidity of Loretta Lynn's that was coming up for him. Jimmy Evans, Roy Holt, Steve Roman, Jason Marks, Steve Crowe and Dan Raible just to name a few riders.



The other slide show is of Jimmy Evans and Ashley Woskob going at it on the same day at PVR, July 16th. It was an awesome race that the two had with each other. Good times and great riders.



Hopefully I will get better at making slide shows with music. They are a lot of fun.

~ AARON WILLIAM LANTZER ~

~ MAY 2, 1980 - MARCH 11, 2001 ~




IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR...... AGAIN!

Winter is nearly leaving and spring is doing its best to come soon. My Easter Daffodils are about 3 inches up out of the ground, the buzzards are back flying in the sky, and thunderstorms have been around this week along with a few ground hogs coming out to take a look around. High School wrestling is wrapping up this weekend, the long journey will come to its close at the PIAA State Wresting in Hershey. These are all normal events that have happened at this time for quite a few years. Eleven years ago our family lives where changed forever. Spring brings on the wonderful things but also major pain of loss. When Kristin and I arrived home from our days at the wrestling event in Hershey we found out that our Aaron had died from injuries he received when a drunk driver hit him head on that Saturday night. Even after eleven years I still feel like I am in a bad dream.

Life still goes on, many good and wonderful things but always that one that is so missed. I have thought many a time what would it be like with our Aaron here? I feel he would be a successful working man. Married with children, a son for sure and getting him a bike when old enough. I know that he would be always near like his sisters. Jerry would be pleased with Aaron doing those Father and Son things. Yes, he would be riding at the local tracks. Riding in the vet class or +30. (young +30) His sisters would love to have him here. A big brother for Kristin and the best buddy for his older sister. (another person to help Jenn when Mom and Dad get old) Just the thought of him still being here makes me smile and warmth comes all over me. But reality comes back very quickly. These things are not to be except for the anniversary of his death, his birthday that still comes at the same time as his older sister. Memories, many memories that are in and out of my mind and heart. Every now and then a sweet dream with Aaron in it. Not many but what a blessing getting whatever is sent my way.

As we grow older thru these years, Aaron will be forever young. But oh how I would love to see him grow old with me. Love your children, soak in every minute that you have with them. The years go by way too quickly. Also remember to PLEASE don't drink and drive. You don't have to be drunk to hit someone or hurt your own family. It seems that many don't realize that when they drink and drive that life can change in a blink of an eye. I still hear of so many that have a few drinks and get behind the wheel. Why take the risk, either have a designated driver or just don't drink and get behind the wheel. "It's not going to happen to me thought" is really an insult to all who are suffering the loss of a loved one from that person who believed it. The loss that Jerry, Jennifer, Kristin, Mom and I share is one that we would not want any of you to bare.

We miss you Aaron........

Aaron William Lantzer May 2, 1980 - March 11, 2001 AM

The following slide shows are of our Aaron. Memories of Aaron thru out his nearly 21 years. He is not just a statistic of a Drunk Driver fatality, but a real living person, one that completes our family.
