Happy Valentines Day, everybody! Love is in the air, and, lately, so are congratulations in this column space. For the second week in a row, a hearty “atta-boy” is in order. This time, it’s for our very own Tom Curley, President of the American-Canadian Tour and Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl. Last Thursday, Mr. Curley was honored in Lake Mary, FL by the more than 1,000 members of Racing Promotion Monthly (RPM) as the 2004 Auto Racing Promoter of the Year, the highest honor among short track promoters. Curley was earlier named New England Regional Promoter of the Year, and entered onto the final ballot for the ARPY. The nomination was his third, and he beat out some tough customers, including former ARPY winner Bob Lawton of Boone (Iowa) Speedway fame.
