It was a fun night last night in Weedsport as the Super DIRTcar Series came to town for the Hall of Fame 100. A nice field of 41 cars was on hand for the Modified race while 38 Sportsman were also in the pits as well as some Vintage Modifieds.
The race had all the drama you could have wanted with Erick Rudolph leading every lap until the final one as Gary Tomkins was able to get to the outside on the final lap and take the win in one of the more exciting Weedsport races in quite some time.
It was a packed house as well as a lot of people chose to come out and have some fun on a hot night. As always, the facility provides quite an experience. The food is real good for track food and the prices are affordable enough so you don’t have to be sure to hit the drive through or pack a few sandwiches. I got the Port Burger and it was restaurant quality!
Beforehand I met Rich Vleck and we did some TV work for our next Atomic Power Racing Hour. And it is going to be a good one. I’ll keep you posted on that.
I did a lot of work afterwards and was one of the last people out of the pit area which means you get a lot of past race coverage as we have interviews with eight out of the top nine Modified finishers. We were also able to get some good pre race chats too and those as well as many others will begin showing up tomorrow if everything goes well today.
My computer only needs to make it through today and we will start installing the new one and build the new studio. It is quite an undertaking but I am optimistic although a little cautious about learning new software and a new operating system. Wish me well as I have two long days ahead of me and Friday to learn. OH NO!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for more as I have alot of good ones in the can and keep your fingers crossed that all goes well here and my 11 year old computer can hold on for one more day. Please!!!
