This has been a very relaxing weekend to be at the track. With no track responsibilities, i.e. Victory Lane, etc., its been fun to just walk around the pits, talk to some teams and shoot cars/activities in the pits.
I have to say that the day got very hot. Not only was the racing hot, but the weather was extremely hot. On the track, racing began promptly at 10:00 a.m. The tower announced that in the first thirty minutes, 134 cars had made a pass. The racing continued all day with two rounds of qualifying followed by the start of the Eliminations. The hot weather caused me to take more breaks to cool down than normal. At one point, the outside temperature on my car dash, read 97 degrees! By 3:00 p.m., the weather finally did me in. I decided, that was enough fun for the day and headed home. Here are some images of the day's action.

I want to thank B.J. Vangsness and the entire Byron Dragway staff for their hospitality. I was impressed with the friendliness and the operation. While I would love to spend a third day at Byron, I do have tend to the homefront on this Labor Day weekend.
Next up, is Route 66 O'Reilly Auto Parts Test & Tune next Friday.
