2003 Recap and 2004 Outlook
2003 Racing Re-cap
2003 was not at all what we set out to do. Because of some family medical issues the Byrne Racing Team had to refocus their efforts with racing taking the back seat. All is well now and we are refocused and have our ambitions set on the National Midget Car for David and Oval Kart racing for Peter. Thanks for all the Prayers and Patience, now on to 2004.
2004 schedules are in the works and should be in final form by March 1st. We do know we have decided not to run David for USAC’s “Rookie of the Year”. As a family run team, sponsorship is vital to a 35 race schedule. We’ve scaled back to a 4-8 race schedule with USAC, and 5-10 race schedule with UMARA.
Our big races will be with USAC on July 23rd at the Milwaukee Mile. The Midgets will run the same weekend as the IRL Indy Cars. We also plan to return to the “ Turkey Night Grand Prix” over Thanksgiving in California.
It also looks like Pete’s Go-Kart schedule will only conflic once when we take David to Indianapolis on 500 weekend to run USAC’s “Night Before the 500”
