Here's a nice little video of the Munson Park Night Race, on Saturday Night, that one the East Side gang put together yesterday. It's very well done, I think. As you can see the racing started in the daylight and moved into the shiny, wet, dark of night as the races progressed throughout the evening.
I heard one of the race directors, at the Caledonia race next day, say that he heard that conditions at this race (Munson Park) were "just awful!" As you can see conditions were actually "JUST AWESOME!" Almost everything I hear about East Side races, from West Michigan people who never go to them, is pretty much 100% wrong. Even the weather reports. Why is that? Can anyone explain that to me? You can just slip an envelope with the answer under the blog back door.
If you look hard enough (and I don't know why you would), you can see Laura (Cupcake) Amy and Jeff Haney (Slayer), and your shy narrator standing around cheering, heckling, and eventually racing all our asses off as the night wore on. You'll even see the infamous Crazy Bastard "Heckle-Horn" in the very last shot.
Tonight we're planning (by popular demand) to roll at 6 pm out of Townsend. See you all there, all of you that are going there. I need a nice little spin to clear the legs out before the battle begins again next weekend - so if you all want to go up the road without me, go for it, I'm with you in spirit, just not in body. Just leave me a beer or two at the Honey Creek.
If you're interested in all the racing that went on this weekend, from East to West, check out the last two posts that went up in the last two days, over the weekend. Yeah, we've been busy.
