Friday Night Racing

Filed under: Off Topic — Frank @ 10:30 AM

Our neighbors down the road about a half mile are in to stockcar racing. Both the father and one of the (teenage) sons race. A couple of months ago, I was chatting with the dad and discovered that they race regularly at the Claremont (NH) Speedway, a bit more than an hour’s drive from Antrim.

Yesterday, on a cool and threatening rain, afternoon, I decided to head to Claremont to ‘check out’ the scene. I was hoping to get there early and spend some time in the paddock photographing ‘behind the scenes’. Alas, that did not work out and I arrived only a bit before the first race. They got in about an hour’s racing before the rain began. The good news is that, because of the rain, my ticket is good for next Friday night as well!

  1. Hmmm. . . so un-Gorga of you – car races:) And, the fact that you’ll be returning, what’s gotten into you??? Will you be jeopardizing your nature-photographer status?

    What did you have for a lens?

    Looking forward to see what you catch on your return trip. . .
