This past Saturday, I attended the Bounty Race, held at I-40 Dragway. It’s always a good outlaw drag racing event, and it’s just about an hour from the house, so it’s a short drive. I’ve been attending the Bounty Race series regularly for the past 3 years, enjoying a lot of good racing from what I consider the best seat in the house–standing next to the guard rail. This month was no different, even though rain chances and hot temperatures might have affected the overall turnout. It seems like I always have something to do that interferes with other stuff…this month, I cut the Bounty Race short, so I could watch my dad play at Jacob Myers in Dayton. It was his first time playing there, so I wanted to support the cause. I left the track at 8pm CST so I could get to the restaurant by 10pm EST.
Back to the racing action, there was a great turnout of Cheap Street and Pro Street cars, along with a strong field of index cars racing in the 6.0 and 7.0 classes. Unfortunately, the rain came in at 10pm, and the decision was made to split the money and go home. So even though I left way early, I guess didn’t miss too much this month. Next month will be yet another scheduling conflict, as I’m supposed to be at a wedding the day of the race…hopefully I’ll still be able to get to the track in time! Here are my favorite shots from the day at the July 2011 Bounty Race!
