Hey, Remember That Press Release About This Weekend Being WSMC's 10th Anniversary? That Was Actually Last Month...

Uhh, file this under Never Mind, or, just because a racetrack PR person says it's so, obviously doesn't mean it is. Maybe the moral of the story is, the Willow Springs International Raceway PR guy should do some fact-checking with the WSMC Operations Manager before issuing press releases.<BR><BR>The incorrect press release ran here 1/19/02 and also ran on several other sites.<BR><BR>From an e-mail sent by WSMC Operations Manager Kenny Kopecky:<BR><BR>"Just saw the latest online post (of an official WSMC press release) about our 10th anniversary?!<BR><BR>"It was last month...Dec. 1991 was first WSMC event weekend and Dec. 2001 our 10-year WSMC Anniversary event. (We gave out commemorative plaques, too!)<BR><BR>"Kenny Kopecky<BR>"WSMC OpsMgr"
