That's awesome mate, are you doing any other motorsport event's while you are over there?Night 1 Dirt Derby at Eldora Wednesday 31/7. The NASCAR trucks ran in 2 x 30 minute practice sessions plus a number of qualifying type hotlap sessions. The other cars racing were the big blocks which were the loudest cars I’ve ever heard. The feature race for the evening was the 100 lap big block race. The NASCAR trucks run tonight in a 150 lap feature.
The trucks are about 3 seconds a lap (19 - 20 sec/lap) slower than the big blocks and they look like they’re skating on ice in the turns. Lots of spins in turn 3 during practice sessions.
Eldora is an amazing venue in the middle of nowhere. There are no signs directing you to the venue and without a satnav you wouldn’t be able to find it. The merchandise is really cheap with t-shirts going between $10 - $20, the food and drink prices are ridiculously cheap compared to how we get fleeced in Oz. Beer is $2, coke $1, burgers $3 - $4, spirits $3 a shot or $4 with a mixer. Here’s some photos from last night, I’ll add more next week from Knoxville at the Nationals.
Yes, as mentioned we’re doing the Nationals (410s) at Knoxville starting Wednesday and finishing on the Saturday night. We visited Bloomington Speedway yesterday while driving from Louisville to Indianapolis. Today we’re going to the ‘Brickyard’ to visit the museum (there’s vintage race cars running today). Also visiting the Terre Haute track on the way to St Louis.That's awesome mate, are you doing any other motorsport event's while you are over there?
