Route 66 Raceway, Test & Tune #2
What a magnificent day for racing and the car count reflected that. We had everything from Mark Cryer's "Nu Big Thing" Smart Car Dragster to street cars, motorcyles, Top Sportsman dragsters, to Rocky Ausec's Nostalgic Funny Car "Solid Rock". I was talking to Mark Cryer and his son Nick before their first run and they stated they had tuned out the wheel stand. Well, as can be seen in the accompanying photo, that didn't happen! There was one crash early in the event and fortunately there were no injuries.
The rest of the day went fairly smoothly, with some minor stoppages due to some minor oil downs. Other than that it was a great day and I had fun renewing some friendships and a special shout-out to Bill Cox, who is having some health issues. It was good to see him back in his car.
Here are some images from today.
