Last weekend we headed out to Grand Bend Motorplex for their nostalgia drag racing. I was so excited, it has been a long winter waiting to go back to the strip. Three of us hopped into our 1967 Chevy Pickup and took off for Grand Bend, making a couple of stops along the way to see some customers. Arriving at the track just before 12, the smell of racing fuel and burning rubber filled the air. Even though it started out really hot, a nice breeze picked up, giving the cars a tailwind, and allowing them to go even faster, as well as giving the spectators a chance to cool down. The racing was good with lots of fast and cool cars. I can't wait until my 1968 Chevy II Nova is finished so that I can drive down the strip, and not just have to sit in the stands. It was great to see some familiar faces and I can't wait to go back again. Hopefully this was the first of many trips to the track this summer.
