We had a ball last night as Allie and I headed south to Five Mile Point Speedway. For the rest of the summer we are gonna try like heck to get to a track we have not been to yet this year and now we have done that on back to back weekends.
Allie sung the national anthem from the booth and did a fine job. She was nervous of course but I was there and since she did not have to do it in front of the crowd and in front of people she knows well it was the best way to get her first time in. Now she wants to do it one more time from the tower before standing out in front of everyone.
I also got some mic time as they needed an extra voice in the booth. I shared mics with Dan and Andrew Harpell and the three of us old veterans had a darned good time. It was a good time all the way around.
And the racing was real good including the Factory Stocks which put on the best racing of the night. These cars were a blast and the racing was top notch with 14 year old Charlie Towner taking the win.
The Sportsman were really good too and caution free for the most part. I had not seen Slingshots in quite some time and they put on a nice show plus the four cylinder Lightning Cats were plentiful and very racy.
They are racing tonight with their Summer Slam Series for Modifieds with a 6:30 start time so if you are looking for some Sunday fun because your favorite track is off then give them a try.
We got to meet a lot of new people and those conversations will start showing up Tuesday. Tomorrow we’ll chat with some Modified drivers about last week’s Super DIRTcar Series races on Monday and have more from Five Mile Point the next day.
I hope you all have a great Sunday and I hope to see you back tomorrow for more stuff from my weekend travels.
