Back “Home”

As most of you know, Motor Man builds race engines for round-track cars as well as hydroplanes (race boats).

Our local short track, Langley Speedway, has been around for 66 years. Last year, because of negotiations between the owners and the current leasee, the track didn’t open. Life went on, of course, and many of Langley’s regulars traveled to other tracks to race.

But this season, Langley is back. The first race was last Saturday, but prior to that, of course, there were practice sessions.

Motor Man went to both practice days, but I was just at one. It was a cold, windy day, so the inside of the car hauler was a good shelter. Mark is also a racer and, while not one of our engine customers, he is a long time friend.

It was still cool Saturday for racing, but no chance of rain, which is always good. And the parking lot was full, with cars all along the street and nearby areas.

And the stands were packed.

Mark finished 3rd; Danny had shock issues and finished 7th.

It’s good be back “home”.
