  Hi Everyone,

I'm so sorry that I missed sending out my newsletter last week, but I'm back now and ready to jump right into September. I hope you all had a safe and fun Labor Day weekend, if you were lucky it was a 3 day weekend. I would like to take a moment, in the spirit of Labor Day which is to thank the workforce, and send out a big THANK YOU to the employees of THE SPEED SHOP for all of the work that you do.
