We were able to watch drag racing on the 1/4 mile track, which I guess is the normal Friday night activity. These were just ordinary cars although I imagine some of the participants made improvements. I’m not an expert so I couldn’t even begin to guess what modifications are possible.
It was an enjoyable activity, although if we ever go again we’ll have to remember to bring our stadium bleacher seats, along with mosquito repellent, sunscreen, binoculars, and maybe even ear plugs.
|One of the cars got up to 119.4 mph, and we saw a few go over 150 mph.|
Another thing we learned is that just like in an ice rink, every so often they shut the track down so it can be resurfaced or something. It was kind of cool watching the zamboni, or whatever they call it.
We didn’t know everything would be outdoors, but because it was, we saw a beautiful sunset.
