KahneFan Posted May 9, 2005 Report Share Posted May 9, 2005 Not sure where all the people came from Saturday night, but I think it was bigger than the USRA night. Honestly, I think a lot of them (non-regulars) turned out for the demo. Normally turn 4 is kind of empty on most nights, but there was only about a half of one set of bleachers left... including the new high rise at the very top!! The reason I'm guesing they turned out for the demo was when the rain came the front stretch and turn one (mostly regulars) kind of cleared out, but turn 4 stayed for the demo. To the drivers - GREAT SHOW!!! There was some great action Saturday night. I will admit, some drivers were pulling the annoying "stall for the yellow", but many others would tear off out of turn four and come back on the track in a cloud of smoke and keep the race going. I don't recall who it was (Hobby I think), that did the full 360 down the front stretch and continued into turn one like nothing happened, but that was some AWESOME driving!!! Didn't miss a beat. THR Officials - With the looming (r-word) and so many classes to get through, I must say you all did an outstanding job of keeping one class right behind the other and making sure everything ran VERY smooth. We had 5 heats easily finished by 7:30. Wes (and the dirty 1/2 dozen) - What can I say, y'all were great as well. I didn't count the caution laps for each incident, but I wouldn't guess there were more than 5 for any of them (except the blown motor and roll over). Overall, out of my 3 years at THR, I would say this (minus the r word) was probably one of the best nights I've seen. Thanks to everyone for making this a great night of racing! I have a feeling we will see a lot of these new people again. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
