went to the All Star Sprints at Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Va. 

outstanding facility. Did nit eat or go to the bathroom but I would imagine they are both fine. 

They had the 419 sprints featuring Tony Stewart and some kind of dirt Modified. Looked like the Midwest mods.

The sprints put on a good show. Several of the Posse came down for ten grand to pay show. 

The mod show was much. Mostly spread out single file racing although damn near everyone left before the mid feature. I left. 

They had a power outage so there was a 40 minute delay part way thru the show.

There were 24 sprints so they ran three heats, the Dash and feature.

The show was too long because they had Time trials for the mods, three heats, two races for who knows what and a consolation.

i left after the sprint feature and it was after 11:30. I had a two and a half hour ride home. Lucky I’m retired so it wasn’t a big deal.

For whatever the reason they do not have a speaker in the pit grandstand. The speakers are in the pits which you cannot hear in the pit grand stand. They do have a top five scoring pilot but unless you know who is in the car number in there you’re lost.

Racing surface couldn’t have been better. There were few spins and one sprint flip. For a track that does not sprint cars on a regular basis they did a great job of starting them and keeping the show going. The sprints looked like rockets in that smooth surface.

This track is a late model track and they have several high paying shows for them on the schedule. They will be attracting the big guys for these shows. If you are a super late model fan it may be worth the trip south. 

If they have the 410’s again I’ll go back. The Sawyers put a ton of money in this Speedway and it is one of the best in the country. 

I’d say it is four to four and half hours from the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Souther Md. traffic is the big  hang up.
