Richmond Int’l Raceway, 30 June 2007

On June 30, I attended a double admission, double header at Richmond International Raceway. It was supposed be this way, but rains came and canceled Friday evenings race ,so they opened up the track early on Saturday for the USAC Sprint car race, which was dominated by Bobby East. After that race, they cleared the track and I headed with my friend Walt to the BBQ. Once again, good food all things considered. After the BBQ, we went back in, with a separate ticket to see the USAC Silver Crown (won by Bryn Tyler) and IRL (won by Dario Franchitti) races . All-in all, another great weekend for a great price at Richmond. Due to the double admission and the fact the Sprints were supposed to run on Friday, I’m counting this as two races.

2007 totals after the Richmond weekend:

Races: 22 & 23
Tracks: 16 (11 new) (161 lifetime)
States: 14 (7 new) (42 lifetime)
