Friday (5/13/11) was a full day of racing and photography. It felt good to be at the track, seeing and hearing the cars roar by. A good friend of mine is known to say at times like this, “It’s all good!”…and it was.
The afternoon endro races were extremely competitive…and for a portion of the Brian Redman Enduro I could swear I was taken back to 1969 and the good old days of the International Championship for Makes Series. For approximately 40 minutes I watched two 1969 Chevron B16’s battle each other lap after lap. It was intense to say the least. In the end, the combination of wet grass and the desire not to be over-taken took the yellow # 23 out of contention. Fortunately, driver Ralph Manaker, of Middleburg, VA escaped injury though he was dazed from the impact.
Here are a few pictures of the event. Enjoy.
