BEFORE E-MAILING US A QUESTION PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE BELOW
If you are a business that wants to pay us for advertising....ignore the message below.
If you have bought a T-Shirt or made a donation...ignore the message below.
If you are just E-Mailing to say "hey there, love your site"....ignore the message below.
If you are a fan I regularly correspond with...ignore the message below..
If your are sending a Rant or commenting on an article...ignore the message below.
If you are sending us information on a track...ignore the message below.
This message is for those people who are emailing me about information they think I know and THEY NEED. We have an on-line store and we do except donations for the information we are providing at the paypal button below or at our on-line store. We have a few advertisers but not nearly enough to compensate me for the time I spend giving you, the race fans, all this information for FREE.
Before sending a question to us about anything, please take the time to read the website to see if your answer is already been posted. If you have spent any time on our site you realize that it is over 350 pages! I am the only one who is updating the site and posting information. I do this for FREE. I spend hours upon hours researching and posting information. It is extremely annoying to receive an email that ask a question that is answered on the site but the person didn't bother taking the time to look for it. If there is a link on the Race Track page you are seeking information about, then you need to read each one of them. All Race Track pages have at least 3 (if not 4) other links on it that have a ton of information on them. PLEASE take the time to read the entire page.
PLEASE NOTE: EVERYTHING I KNOW AND AM WILLING TO SHARE ABOUT THE TRACKS IS ALREADY POSTED. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL ME ASKING FOR "EXTRA INFO". IF I DO KNOW ANYTHING ELSE I SAVE IT FOR THE FOLKS WHO DO HELP FINANCIAL SUPPORT THIS SITE.
If you do E-Mail me I would appreciate your taking the time
to acknowledge that I have a name and it is Jo Ann.
It is a big pet peeve of mine to receive an email that just jumps into a question.
No "hey there Joann".
No "thanks for the great website".
No "take care. From a fellow race fan, John Smith".
Just some one asking yet more FREE information from me. (as if what I provide free isn't enough)
This is just plain rude and I will no longer take the time to send back a reply.
Also, please ask all of your questions in one email.
I had one guy who emailed me 8 times about his trip to Talladega. I understand you are excited about going to a race BUT please try to be considerate of the fact that I am very busy....
We here at Laidback Racing respond to every e-mail we receive personally. We feel it is important not to send an automatic response but to take the time to respond to some one who has taken the time to write. I will not take the time to answer the ones that do not follow the above procedure. So if you do not get an answer from me it is probably because you did not do one or more of the above.
This being said, I love hearing from the race fans. It is what makes doing all this worth it. Many fans can attest to the fact that I send back very lengthy emails with the additional information they have requested. There are just some fans that are getting on my last good nerve. I am not trying to be rude, I am simply laying out some guidelines that will help you get a response from me. Still want to E-mail one of us?
Jimmy ain't real computer literate or as Steve would say "he is happy in his computer stupidity," so I took his email address off here because it just makes more work for me!
THANKS Y'ALL AND HOPE TO TAILGATE WITH YOU AT THE TRACK REAL SOON,
RACE MAMA BUBBATE, JO ANN
