Pursuit race on Sunday

Post by jshiloff » Sun Sep 09, 2018 9:55 pm

The Pursuit Race on Sunday was a blast. 23 cars lined up to see who could go fastest for 10 laps. The slowest cars started first , then the faster cars. Danny K started a lap behind and still won by less than 15 seconds. 23 cars , 10 laps , no metal to metal or yellow flag laps. Every one was happy at the finish, to be followed by a Champion Toast at the Start / Finish line. A GREAT Time by all.
We might do it again...!!!

In spite of the colder-than-normal weather, I think we all gave the old track one heck of a sendoff!

That final race ("all skate" ;-) was truly a sight to behold, my head was on a swivel trying to take it all in.

Among the countless highlights, I really enjoyed Jimmy DeMarco coming in early then running over to the pit-out grandstands so he could "spectate" the last few laps ;^D
