Packed House at Varney
Every race we attend at Varney ends up being standing room only. The place was jam packed. It was also a driver introduction/fan appreciation night. It was extremely hot and our series was asked if we would run a 50 lap feature race. The heat race was good, we finished 4th. Our top 3 drivers all broke the track record. Every car was setting lap times less then 14 seconds. The track is high banked and very hard on the race cars. Fan appreciation was cool, it was great to see return spectators from last year. The feature was the fastest, craziest, spark flying race ever. The cars were even faster once the sun went down. The sparks from the bottom of the cars put on a good show for the fans. The 50 lap feature went caution free. Not a single driver made a mistake, everyone drove great. We started last and worked our butts off to get up to 5th position. The race was over before we knew it. Hopefully next year they take my offer of a 75 lap feature. That would also set a record for Pro Challenge. Up next is our home track, Flamboro Speedway.
