Turkey Derby, Wall Township Speedway

On Black Friday, I decided to go to Wall Township Speedway for the first day of the 34th annual Turkey Derby. I usually only go if the weather is real nice, and while it was Sunny, it was cold so I was iffy about going, but I figured if I bundled up I’d be OK. As it turns out, I found a spot out of the wind and in the sun, and until the sun went down it wasn’t so bad despite the about 40 degree weather. I decided on the Friday of Turkey Derby instead of Saturday because I wanted to watch the TQ midgets. They, as always but on a good show, as did the Legend cars. The other divisions where as exciting, but still fun to watch. It looked like Factory Stock victory was going to go to a driver from Buffalo NY, but with 4 laps left, cars he was coming up to lap were going three-wide and wrecked, and he couldn’t get by them. What a shame as it would have been great to see the out-of-towner get the win.
