An Evening of Maximum Destruction

Close to twenty club and family members made the trek to Auto City Speedway on July 2nd for an evening of maximum destruction. Here's who you missed: Frank Burger and family, Phil Kingham and family, Dan and Mary Ann Kantrow, Roger Garrell and Katie Sharp, Keith Chambers, Gary Starin, Arnie Spieker, his niece Leah and my nephew Jim and his bride Jennifer. Best dressed of the group was Mark Kingham, aged five, with a purple Hoosier Hat and shades – too cool for himself.

In addition to being a junior member of GQ Mark proved to be quite erudite in his comment to Arnie Spieker regarding the boat, sans trailer, racing in his very matter of fact comment, "this just isn't right." Despite all of my hype of this event over the last month or so, the consensus agreement is that those words just partly describe the insanity…you just have to see, smell and feel the entire experience – from the venue, to the people watching, to the cars, trucks and assorted "things" that assaulted the racetrack. A great time was had by the entire group…perhaps again next year….
