We return to Beech Ridge in Maine for his or her tackle the Spectator Drags scene. In case you are unfamiliar with how this technique works, it’s a lap of a brief asphalt oval with two vehicles racing in an elimination setup. The winner returns to the queue for a brand new paring whereas the loser drives again into the pits…in the event that they’re fortunate. These are vehicles with plates that have been willfully pushed onto the observe floor, with the drivers understanding that concrete poisoning, engine injury, and even a bit of fine ol’ boy “rubbin’ is racin’” motion can all be within the playing cards. It’s not unprecedented for a Spectator Drags driver to PIT-maneuver somebody out of the best way in order that they will transfer on to win the prize of the night time. and in some circumstances we’ve seen drivers go into full assault mode. However for each unhealthy seed there are many good racers who simply wish to give it a shot that night time, so that you’ll get a mixture of machines, like a comparatively new Ford Taurus that appears prefer it simply received decomissioned from the police power, a Honda or two, a Mercedes and a BMW to deliver some class to the joint, and a observe favourite at Beech Ridge, a snotty and ready Oldsmobile Cutlass that has been round for a bit now. This black G-body sounds correctly snotty and has the bash marks to show it’s price within the ring. However does it have sufficient, or will the Fox Mustang with the defective hood latch have the oats to take it on the within of Flip three?
Now we have to applaud the drivers for giving the racing a good shot. We’d must have a purpose-selected beater to even take into consideration volunteering to drive into the observe, able to do battle. And it’s not all the time the automobile you count on that may win it. The spray-painted Pontiac Grand Am, however…no. It by no means had an opportunity in hell!
