Open Wheel Weekend

Had a busy weekend covering a couple of open wheel events. First up was the Bob Newton classic at the Plymouth Speedway. This was the first time the World of Outlaw Sprints had run at Plymouth. Most of the laps run were under the old track record. The new track record stands at 11.526 sec which is about a 115mph avg.

USAC midgets were also on the race card. These are probably my favorite class to watch. They can consistently run several wide. Always close racing with this class. The rest of the show got rained out but I think the large crowd got their money’s worth.

Saturday it was a trip to IMS to cover the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. With three classes of open wheel support races and the Indy Car warm up and race, the track was busy all day. The road course is a nice venue with plenty of areas for fans to watch the racing.

Between the two I have several hundred photos to edit and post. Here is a quick gallery of some of the highlights that I posted on Facebook. I think I will start posting more galleries here and preview on Facebook.
