At long last, I am back to report on my visit to the World of Outlaws race at Oshweken Speedway.
When I first arrived at the track, the first thing that ran through my mind was ‘Why are the spectators all wearing safety glasses?’ As soon as the cars took to the track, I answered my own question. 700hp sprint cars racing on dirt with enormous wings kicks up one heck of a dust storm. Thankfully for the spectators, there were several caution periods during the 30 lap feature race, since after about 5 green flag laps, it was all but impossible to see the track from the stands!
I must say, it was quite the amazing show, although I am still finding dirt in my shoes, two weeks later.
