CBSpeedWay.pngIt was my second time out at the renamed Cape Breton Miners Memorial Speedway.  Think this would be the third big races they have put on here.  There were less crashes this time around.  However there was one pretty big one.  One car ended up on top of other.  His left front tire was on the other cars windshield.  There are pictures of that below.  The weather was prefect except for the wind.  Made it a bit cold.  The next races is set to be October 18, 2014.  Planning going to that one as well.  Will have to wear lots of layers.

Have to say the people running this are doing an awesome job.  There was no down time.  Even with the crashes and spinouts they got thing going again pretty fast.  Thinking next season there might be more races because there were lots of people there.

CBSpeedWayWent to the second of four planed races days at the newly reopen and renamed Cape Breton Miners Memorial Speedway.  This tack was closed for many years.  Think the last race I seen there was back in 2009.  The new owners have done a great job of fixing up the place.  All so like how there was no time wasted. Once one race was done the next group was ready to go.  It was all so nice to see more professional race cars.  There are two more race days planed one on September 27 and the other October 18, 2014.  Think I took about 134 pictures so only going to post a few below.

newlogo1-thumb.jpgAfter we went golfing on July 11, 2009.  We decided to go to the stock car races at the Island Speedway.  This was the first races I went to this year.  It wasn’t to bad.  Had more fun watching the people in the crowed.  There was one lady all out of gear because one driver spun another guy out just because he wanted to.   He got a black flag.  As he was driving by the gave the crowed a peace sign.  This lady freaks out yells “He is going to get tonight and so is his women”.  The hole time with her baby in a stroller.  It was too funny watching her freak.

Here are some pictures from the stock races at Island Speedway September 27, 2008.  I posted the demo derby video yesterday.  It was the last racers of the year so they had a bunch a extra races.  It was getting dark and they could not get the lights on so they decided to get ready for the demo derby.  How ever the lights came on so they had 4 or 5 more races before the demo derby.   There was only one big accident.  One car hit the wall really hard and went a little air bone.  When that happed his front tire came off.

Went to the stock car races at the Island Speedway last night.  It was the first race I went to this year.  We sat in the pit area seating.  Some pretty crazy and funny things happed.  The wall got bumped a few times in front of us.  Sparks every every.  The best bump some one guy slid out and hit the wall head on.  A few tires came off.  The best on was the cars were in a caution.  They were going really slow and this guys whole tire and rim came off.  Funny stuff.  There was one really crazy crash.  Three guys were going into the corner side by side.  None of them were going go give in.  One car went air borne and one other hit the wall hard.  The car the went air borne got back into the race.  Pretty crazy.
