(How to go over obstacles.)
I had been through my first season of being the Division Director of NHRA's Northwest Division VI. It had been a steep learning curve, with lots of bumps and bruises, but an awesome lifetime experience working in a new land, with racers and Certification Team members and track operators, all working together to bring an exciting sport to competitors and audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest.
As the presiding official for my Division, which included Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, I received many a phone call from racers and track operators asking questions about rules and procedures.
For technical questions like "What carburetor can I run on my '55 Chevy?" I sent off to my Division Tech Director, Jack Shannon. The operational rules and track operator questions were my responsibility, and there were a lot of them.
Many of them had to do with "How do I fill out the forms for getting event insurance?", or "How do I take care of reporting an accident?", etc. Procedural issues that inquirers had no other place to go to get answers.
