Are there any full time bike race promoters in NY, CT, NJ?

I am new to the Tri-State area and have yet to involve myself in the scene (bike is broken and garaged until further notice).
So, who would be considered a full time, or at least heavily involved part-time promoter/event services organization in the area?
Or is there such a thing around here?

In Florida, we had TopView Sports and to some extent a couple others who were involved in numerous weekends throughout a season.

And yes, I realize our esteemed Aki (aka CDR) is all over the Bethel spring series.

yes, there are several area folks who promote a lot of races. I think most of them still have day jobs though.

Charlie Isendorf must put on something like 40 races a year

I can vouch for YMCA being a good announcer if that is where this is eventually heading.

We all already know that he knows how to race.

The guy that runs Battenkill is probably a full time promoter (?). I think he has a few events.

Charlie Issendorf for sure. I think he's associated with Champion Systems for his day job, but that may be out of date.

I don't know if Anthony Van Dunk (?) does anything now but he did a lot before.

I don't know the NY/NJ scene so much anymore since I don't venture down there as much.

Not a lot of announcing stuff in NYC races since they're so early in the morning and virtually spectator free. NJ is virtually dominated by the golden throated Joe Sailing. Check the NJBA website and make some friends with folks on facebook. Opportunities exist.

That would be Dieter Drake.
