Default Manzanita Speedway

Last night ECHO SSEI, Bob to us all, and myself went out to the Checker Auto Parts Budweiser Western World Championships at Manzanita Speedway http://manzanitaspeedway.us/html/nov9-11.asp in Phoenix. The racing was hot the cokes were cold, the pit announcer was psychotic and the dirt was everywhere. So we are up in the stands and who calls Bob but Boosty. This is one nice club.

Right before the first championship race for the 360 class the announcer calls out the lucky number winners for patrons that purchased programs and yours truly won. Wish it was a t shirt but it was some STP oil treatment and a can of Octane Boost both of which I would not be able to take back with me to home on an airplane. So Bob was the lucky winner. Both of us agreed that both products were pretty much not worth the money but free is free.

Got back to the hotel room around 12:30 this morning.

I would like to thank Bob for taking the time to go out to the races last night. I really had to twist his arm, fortunately it did not take much strength to do the arm twisting, LOL. We had a great time.

And before anyone can post
I did not have a camera with me this trip.

Glad you guys had fun! Wish I would've been able to tag along, but my attendance for the drags at Firebird the previous night meant that I owed my wife a night of lovin'

It was a busy weekend, that'* for sure. That was good fun. Glad I could help coordinate some entertainment while your down herefor work.

Are you still finding little balls of mud in your clothes, Tom?

I took a big dirt clod in the right ear...hurt for a good half hour. (Turn one is sooooo much fun, though).
