A beautiful weekend, sunny but a little cold, headlined the "world series" of enduro racing............................... :)
On the way to the big weekend of racing, I saw a sign on a funeral homes building that some of the drivers apparently didn't see......It read: Drive Carefully We'll Wait.......................... :(
Over 175 cars and trucks stuffed themselves into the pits for a great two days of racing, it was a NEETS SRO affair............... :drool:
Most of the heat races turned into very competitive affairs with very little carnage in both the 4 and 8 cyl. classes, congrats to all the winners, they ran hard and deserved to start up front for the big race............ :applause:
The "trux" contest was a thriller between John Cozza and Bobby Pease with the "Peaseman" taking the checkers after Cozza dropped out with a brush with the wall............................................ :eek:
The night festivities continued with a surprise birthday party for the NEETS big guy himself, "skeletor" or as we all know him Billy B......................... :D
He D.J.'ed his own party with over 120 of his NEETS family in attendance dancing, eating and celebrating his 51st lap around the sun.............. :cool:
Sunday arrived with much anticipation as Felix filled the drivers meeting with the sounds of RACIN, RACIN, RACIN............................... :rolleyes:
The small cars charged onto the 1/3 mile oval and put on a super show in a race loaded with reds........................... :(
Way to go #61s Harry Sager, not only winning the race but clinching the championship, good races for the #30 of Joe Grocholski and #62 Luke Colleran................................. :applause:
The long awaited big car bigger bucks race started off with a bang and many costly red flags cut into the racing laps as the night grew darker and colder............................ :disgusted
The race was called after 151 laps because of a damaged guard rail on the front stretch with 5 of the top 15 cars having to pit if the race had continued, who knows what would have happened if the race went the distance......................... :confused:
What can you say about Ray Fitzgerald #16x four for four in NEETS contests this year, he is truly a remarkable enduro driver..................... :applause:
Excellent finishes by #124 Mark Spencer and the 2005 NEETS champ #41 Joe Jentile.................................... :applause:
After all the damaged cars, the cold weather, the "busted steering wheels" hehe.............What makes all this worthwhile?.........Its YOU all my enduro brothers and sisters, the best people in my world................. :cool:
GOOD LUCK and see you at the Beaters.................... :wave:
UNCLE PETEY.......................... :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave:
