Ok here we go! The next street race will be Saturday Night August 28th. Here are some ideas that we have so far... Gates open 8pm racing at 9pm gates don't close until everyone leaves. Track prep will be 200ft-finish no start line prep to keep it street comparable. At midnight we will have a black-out true street race. Track lights will be off for one hour or longer, we will still have lights in the pits and return road (for safety). Gate fee will be $5 race all night.

A few showers cooled down the track in the early evening, but as the racers started to fill out the track, the track was drying up pretty well. With no rain in sight for the rest of the night and cool temperatures, the stage was set for a full night of racing. A good-sized crowd came out to watch the street monsters fly down the track. A win light helped indicate the winner this time around.

All of the usual suspects were there and many ready to race someone on this great night. As the evening went on, I could feel the exhaustion of the day start to hit me--I had been working on HCS since 10am and out covering events since noon. After 13 hours, I was starting to wind down. I finally had to leave just before two as I wouldn't have been able to drive home. Unfortunately, that also means I missed capturing some of the races later in the evening. But hopefully I made up for it with the pictures. There's over 100 video clips, so there's still plenty to watch.

Events like this really make me miss driving, and next time I think I'm going to have to take a ride or two. See everyone next time!
