That was the main thought running through my head this past Saturday when Aaron and I headed to the Flatrock Motor Speedway. That is, until I saw the Figure 8 racing and realized they make RIGHT turns too!
Now, I know what you're probably thinking...racing, on a Saturday night, we must be some sort of rednecks. Alas we are not (or, at least I am not, I cannot speak for Aaron). At least I don't think we are. Anywho, it was a nice night, pretty windy and cool, but after the winter we had, I'll take it. It's nice to just be outside to be honest.
The track at Flatrock is kind of small, and it's dirt, so that makes it interesting. Instead of all the cars being out at once, they run in heats. And then the winners (or top two, I didn't really pay that close attention) of the heats race to determine the overall winner. Due to the track conditions, spin outs are fairly common, but we only saw one crash. The best part of the night? The figure 8 race at the end. More than a few times, Aaron and I both cringed thinking they were going to crash into each other (no one did though). While I am not a huge racing fan, the figure 8 races did manage to hold my attention for the entire race, a feat in and of itself.
What was everyone else up to this weekend? Any other race fans (or not)?
