Saturday was the beginning of a beautiful 4th of July weekend. Sixteen racers came to Kutztown, PA for the annual Randy’s Raceway 4th of July Blast to the Past racing activities.
Practice on Saturday had nine drivers take advantage of the pre-race tech and tune. The Whelen Modified Body cars ( Indy chassis ) were going to be raced on the Tri-oval this year. It was a good idea by most racers to practice a little more on that track. After Saturday’s practice a few of us once again walked to the local tavern for good food and sprits and had nice time.
Sunday morning came along and five of us went to Letterman’s Diner, this is Henry’s favorite breakfast spot in Kutztown. After that it was time to get back to the tracks and get practice started.
The racers started coming in and donuts and coffee were there to be had for an early morning snack.
Because the Tri-oval track is the food table the Whelen Modifieds were first on the schedule running 2 minute heats. The cars were called to pre-tech, checked, and the racing began. [Read more…]
