Went to Clyde Martin Speedway for day 1 of their Labor day races as a paying fan in the stands.

Likes:  Best bang for your buck in racing!  $6.00 admission for seniors,  over 150 race cars.  60 of them being 600 micros, the rest were 270's,  125's and sportsman somethings.   Racing was non stop from 4:30 to 9pm when we left with features still to go and a 2 hour drive home.  Today was wing day and the racing was great. Multiple grooves and plenty of passing throughout the field with at least 10 cars per race on the 1/8 mile dirt, high bank track.  Food was good, reasonably priced and varied from pizza to pulled pork.  Full view of track from any seat,  track crew was excellant.   Announcer was good with car number, driver name and starting position.  Over 20 preliminary races, with heat races, A main qualifiers, consis' and B mains.   One car going for the lead did a half cartwheel, landed on his wheels, kept going and only lost one spot!  

Dislikes:  Although most races were won from the front row there was passing throughout the field til the checkered flag.  I'm not sure how line ups were determined.

Could have done without the loud music during track prep.

Going back:  This was my 3rd year in a row for their Labor day event.  Can't wait for next year.
