First time on larger, faster trackPosted: Updated:
Saturday night at the races was a real kick because I raced the Checker Auto/Discount Tire 360 Sprint Car on the half mile track at Manzanita Speedway.
It's been over 2 years since I last raced on the larger of the two tracks at Manzy. It's very fast and takes a lot of nerve to throw her sideways in the corner doing over 100mph. I ended up racing to 13th and definitely need more "nerve" to get into the top ten.
My next race will be Tuesday night July 3rd at Manzanita. There will be fireworks and it should be a lot of fun. In addition, you get to see some of the best Sprint Car drivers in the country including Jeremy Sherman who seems to be almost unbeatable.
35th Ave. & Broadway for the best show on dirt. Hope you see you there.
