First up were the time trials for the main event, a 125 lap stock car race. This gave us a chance to see each of the competitors giving it their all out on the track, one at a time, to earn their spot in the final race. The first thing that hit us was the furious noise that the stock cars made as they accelerated up to racing speed. It was pretty exciting, even at such an early stage in the competition.
After that was another quick race, featuring US Legends cars. These are 5/8th scale classic racing cars that go like hell. It was a really fun race to watch with lots of close calls, and not too many stoppages.
Overall, a pretty great evening was had! We never knew how interested we’d be in motorsports, and who knows, maybe we’ll enter our little Corolla in the next event...
And in 2013 we spent the long weekend (which is next weekend this year) in Montréal! We went to a ton of museums, ate a ton of food, and caught up with some friends as we explored Elizabeth's old stomping ground. What a city!
