This week seems like it is crawling by because I leave for my first event at Eldora Speedway on Thursday. It’s also our first two-day event in quite a while, so I’m really looking forward to this weekend.
I’ve seen races on TV and the Internet from the ‘Big E’, and I’ve raced countless times on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series games. However, I’ve never been lucky enough to go to the facility. When I was in Ohio for the All Star Circuit of Champions Speedweek last summer I was within a half hour of the track, but didn’t have time to at least drive over to the place.
Eldora is the start of a ton of great tracks coming up. The following week we return to Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., for the first time in 14 years before a doubleheader at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Then it’s off to New York.
I’m just praying that the weather decides to turn for the better and we’re not faced with nasty conditions, which has been hounding us all season. Somehow we lucked into getting four of the five races in during the last trip. I can’t wait until I’m complaining about heat.
