Wednesday August 21, 2013 was a regular race night out at Capital City Speedway. I arrived at the start of the first heat race. I was making my usual rounds in the pits. Mom asked where all my gear was. I said too tired to carry it all. You see, I had been up in the Wilderness of Quebec on a ATV camping Trip and we had left Wednesday afternoon so I could make it to the races. I partied hard into Wednesday morning and was going on little sleep. Mom is the person in the pits who keeps the mouths fed.
There was some great feature racing with legends cars #1 and #7 going back and fourth. Right off the start for the late models, there was a wreck that saw the 10 go over on the hood of 8. Both cars got tangled up and the tow truck had to be used. Then once that race resumed there was some great chasing going on with the 00 chasing the 2 for the lead. The 2 got spun out by the 00 and with a few laps to go and those cars at the back the 14 took home the win. In the four for fun the 5 car took home its first feature win, but the 86 fought to the end to try and come back up front. Intermsision also saw a carshow/parade around the trank with two groups of 30 cars making their way around.
Friday August 23, 2013 I made my way back out to the track, but this night was drag racing and a fundraiser for a drag racer who has helped the drag strip get up and running. It was great to see so many people out supporting the cause. As I write this the drag racer who was injured in a work acident remains in hospital. There were many a cars taking to the drag strip and lots of people came out to watch. There were a few battles going on, battle of the mustangs and battle of the trucks. Video to come on that shortly.
