1. SDW at Syracuse. Alot of the people didn't enjoy the racing but came for the atmosphere and partying. I, for one, LOVED the racing at the mile. There was alot of strategy that played into doing well on Sunday. I don't mind pit strategy or tire conservation or fuel conservation (cept of course if you expand your fuel cell with compressed air so it will hold more than 24.5 gallons of fuel...SDW XL) going into winning the race.
2. World Finals at Charlotte. Just the three top classes of cars that run on dirt for three nights in a row. Track is always in top notch condition and the area has every and anything that you would want to do during the day at your disposal. Probably the best bang for your buck in Dirt Track racing.
3. Freedom 76 at Grandview Speedway. I've been going to Grandview for 49 years now and was the first track that my old man ever took me to. Alot of great memories come to mind when i think of Grandview Speedway. From my dad explaining what he knew about the cars (not a whole hell of alot, but he was a great bullshitter), from working on a late model and making great friends for 3-4 years, To simply hearing Ernie Saxton regurgitating the same tired lines and still giggling at them, " Theres a blue ford pickup in the parking lot that has their lights on. They'll eventually turn themselves off".
But back to why this is one of my favorite events. ONE class of cars that has the best of the best drivers entered. Usually a well run show with a great party atmosphere. For some reason, i always just feel like im attending somethign "special" there.
The old girl has seen her better days and needs ALOT of TLC, but i simply can't discount this event because management has let the place go.
I just copied and pasted from another thread to make sure my "vote" was counted. Also to let you know not to count it twice.
