Albany-Saratoga. Crew/pits.  One of the best run short tracks you will find. Always great crowds and always great car counts and an amazing atmosphere because of those two things. Competition is second to none, especially in the special shows. Everything is so well run. Nice trip up with John Larsen (Chris Larsen's cousin..not really) and Bernie Bailey, so the stories were flying.

Tribute race to two of the best, Jack Johnson and CD Coville. 61 laps of blender type excitement.  Racing was great throughout, but wicked dusty.  I don't mind dust when the racing is that good. Two divisions, Modifieds (most are Big Blocks) and Pro-Stocks.  Missed the Pro-Stock feature, but alot of carnage being towed in.

Billy Pauch Jr. had a nasty wreck in warm ups. Another guy spun  in turn one and Billy had nowhere to go, hit the guy pretty hard and rolled over him landing on his wheels, Car tore up real bad, but thankfully Billy was OK. This was a car you would look at say and it was going back to the builder (TEO), but somehow they put it back together and raced...amazing work. Good to see Nick Lombardo and Billy Sr. there helping.

Started at seven and ended at 10:10.  Shane Andrews on the mic is the absolute best. He understands it's a "Show"

Overall A+ show from my standpoint, hopefully hear from someone in the stands.
