**I wish to acknowledge a mistake I made in the September issue of the Chargin’ Thunder magazine. In the California Mini-Meet article on page 5 I should have said, "The information in this article was provided by Mr. John Zinn" instead of written by John Zinn. In fact, it was me who actually wrote the article using the information John gave me.

I sincerely apology to Mr. Zinn and I thank him for showing me that I need to be more careful about not making these kind of errors in the future.
