Tubby Posted October 3, 2011 Report Share Posted October 3, 2011 Still in denial that our race season is done for 2011, I spent part of the morning programming an eBay radio to communicate with our others. I started thinking about which race was the most fun and why this year. I thought it would be fun to hear from the other teams which race they enjoyed the most and what made it the most fun for them? I'll start but I don't really have an absolute favorite, I have great memories from each race weekend.Road America - First time racing on this track although I've done many track events there. It was fun partying in the bars in Elkhart with all the teams. We met a ton a nice folks and had a lot of fun with them across the events.Brainerd (BIR) - Had all the families and friends up for the weekend and it was 70's and sunny both days (after the Russian winter of RA). Really enjoyed various battles (3 Sheets, Shake and Bake, etc.)Brainerd #2 - 14 hour race - I prefer the longer races. Was disappointed many of the faster cars from the first BIR didn't show (fixing or saving for the Chumpionship for some). Heartland Park Topeka - First time at this venue and really enjoyed it. First DNF in six events received parts from people in two states and several teams in the paddock. Drove the HPT - Kansas City roundtrip three times that weekend in a rental car (minivan of course... do ya have ANYTHING else??!!). Fixed, welded, J.B. welded, glued, zip tied, bent and ran on Sunday. We'll be back to do this track again!Chumpionship - Loved the large field of cars from California to New Jersey. Met and laughed with many new teams. Had great neck and neck stints with other teams (Red Porsche #41 and James E. from Eggboy stick out). The close ending was epic for teams all the way into the mid pack. The Iowa Speedway world class facilities and staff amazing! Met many racers and enjoyed handing out beers from the rolling Deer Cooler. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
