I'm one day late with this post but... whatever.

January 19th was the second anniversary for And Down The Stretch They Come here at SB Nation. As a result, I'd like to take a quick moment to thank all of those that have stopped by to read, comment or post during that time.

This site isn't the largest of the SB Nation community but it's one that I'm very proud to be a part of. During 2011, site visits increased 190% when compared to 2010, with a 133% increase in page views. But beyond the raw numbers, I'm happier that this community has always been a place where we can discuss the game that we love without some of the usual problems that one finds on the internet on a regular basis. Whether your a life-long racing fan, or just recently found a love for the sport, I'm honored that you would take the time to visit this community.

To all of the readers: Thank You!
