Time sure has flown by. Most people I've talked with, have had a busy summer. As everyone in the local area knows, we haven't seen much rain. What does mother nature decide to do on the date set for the Summer Slam at Capital City Speedway? She decided to rain. Friday the 7th of September, it began thundering and lightning around 11pm. Saturday rolls around and its pouring rain, pretty much all day. Good thing the officals made the call a few days before and moved the Summer Slam to the rain date of September 9.
I arrived to the track on Sunday just before 2. Out front the Monster Trucks were parked on display before their show. Higher Education and Black Stallion were on Display. Also on display was a drag car and an Outlaw 600 Ice Oval Race sled. Of course there were some drivers around the oval sled and I had a good chat with them as I hadn't seen them in quite some time.
I made my way into the pits and saw a visiting late model and mini stock car. There was some great heat races. The Vintage Modifieds were also back and this time there was a bigger pack out on the track which was great to see. There was a drifting and drag race demonstration and then the Monster Truck Came out for their first show, The feature races saw some great racing. The last race of the season was the 100 Lap Enduro Race.
Stock Car Season maybe over at Capital City Speedway, but Thursday night drifting and Friday night drag racing is still on.
