|Who’s a WESCO, What’s a WESCO, Once a WESCO, Be a WESCO now!
I think I heard that from a cheerleader back in High School ‘bout 100 years ago. Well here I go again calling all the alumni for a 2019 reunion. I think it is easier to figure out What’s a WESCO than Who’s a WESCO.
What’s a WESCO is an organization dedicated to an economical grassroots form of Open Wheel Sprint Car racing that sprang out of the dirt and clay of Skagit Speedway when the fertile minds the Rapier family owned it. God Father Jim Rapier had planted sprint car seeds in clay and found a way to prosper from his crop and passed the secret down to his son Alan so that his wife and son could do what was necessary to keep the crop plentiful long after he left the fertile field of Skagit.
For 25 years the organization has struggled against all elements of life like any other living organism. Rich times, lean times, loneliness, heart breaking losses and joyful top pentacle life moments. It has endured sad memories and joyous memories that can’t be erased. It has been the catalyst that has brought families close together and has been a dividing wedge in others. If one were to follow and write the history of the WESCO organization it has the drama of a Shakespearian drama or Hollywood plot. Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy reunites with girl but girl loves someone else. Boy finds someone else but girl realizes her true love was boy but now boy and the girl are mixed up. Wow, and that was the easy explanation.
The hard one to figure out is Who’s a WESCO. I’m thinking it’s a chicken or the egg deal. Maybe a Who has to figure out what is a What before seeing if the want to align their stars with that What.
So here it is without the drama. A WESCO is a club of like people (almost) with the same interest of healing broken hearts and love affairs to stay together for the best interests of the racing family. Like in troubled marriages all parties concerned need to want it or move on. WESCO is not alone with the tasks at hand of staying alive in the tough market of show business. And that is what auto racing is; show business. Without the right cast of characters and a remarkable program to show, failure is almost guaranteed. If you think you are up to the task of leading man apply now. Get your name on the list; Auditions start April 20, 2019 at Hermiston, Oregon.

It ain't about where you're going that's important; it's all about how much fun you have getting there!
