   Remarked Founder Voorhees, “This trio of more than capable historians will be such an asset to our group of historians already in place and across the nation.  I am very excited about what these guys can bring to the table and the ability to again, broaden our knowledge and resource base with their addition to ARRA!”
  Guy Smith is a 39 year veteran columnist for Area Auto Racing News, has visited over 1850 different race tracks…along the way…putting together a very well versed library of racing history…meticulously in order and in depth!  But his record keeping is not relegated solely to auto racing…his stats library is just as impressive in the area of baseball, ice hockey and soccer also.

   Michael Sessler got his start in local auto racing when at three years old..his dad was racing at the Brewerton and Weedsport Speedways.  Growing up in the sport, he was always a stat hound…collecting and saving any and all racing related programs, yearbooks, etc. in order to document and save racing history.  His field of expertise lies in the Central New York area dirt tracks.
   “I am sure that I speak for all of our esteemed historians on our staff here at ARRA,” mentioned Voorhees from his office in Ringoes,NJ “….when I say Welcome to our three newest members!”
