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...Read Full Post »

Saturday April 6, 2013 saw the return of Black Jack Racing to the Edelweiss Ski Hill. Due to the warmer weather in 2012 the event could not be held. I was pleased to see lots of spectators and racers. Based on the number of race rounds going on, the entries appeared to have increased since the first 2011. It was great to see all these different classes race up the hill.

March 21, 2012 saw the AMA Supercross role into Toronto for a night of racing at the Rogers Centre. I Made the trip down to Tornoto to take in this event for the first time. I've always watched the Races on the TV, but being able to see it in person was so much better. The Stadium was full with a good crowd chearing for the favourite riders.
