Hey there race fans! What a great weekend of racing we had!
I hope that you were able to join us on Emergency Personnel Appreciation night at the Bullring. We could not have asked for better weather, it was a beautiful night for racing.
This is one of my favorite nights because we get to honor the men and women that help keep us safe and everyone is able to get up close to some really cool vehicles. As you can see from the photos, we had lots of emergency vehicles that were on display and some that even participated in opening ceremonies. I think one of my favorite pictures is of Pit Boss riding in the SWAT Armored Vehicle. I have to admit that both the Mercy Air and Metro Helicopter flyovers were pretty cool!!
We also had box races for the kids. I want to thank Keri for letting me model her cute pink box car! Thanks Keri! I want to thank all of the kids that participated and congratulations to all the kids that won. There were some great looking box cars that I saw out there. That's always a great event!
This weekend is the Chris Tickle Father's Day Double Header. Then, we have our Annual Night of Fire on July 2 with fireworks and a jet car burn. I hope you can make it out to catch both weekends. Don't forget, after July 2, we take our summer break. That just gives us time to rest up for the second half of the season. Wow, I can't believe we are already halfway through the 2009 race season! Time flies when your having fun!
Have a great week and as always, see you at the races!
