      Hi All,
      Friday I drove out east with the first stop being at Providence Raceway in
      Henry Virginia. This is the second year for this kart track in rural
      Virginia near Martinsville. The track is a 1/5-mile clay oval that sits on
      the lowest elevation of the property so viewing is good from any side of
      the track. There is a lot of run off area (most all of it uphill) before
      any fences and hay bales are placed in front of any posts such as the flag
      stand and stop lights. Traffic cones and metal plates mark the inside and
      the infield is clear. The lights are good and the speakers are OK but used
      only for announcing the next class to grid. They have a tech building and
      an office as the only permanent buildings as the concessions were out of a
      trailer and the toilets were port-a-potties. Tonight was a preliminary
      show for the fall brawl on Saturday and had racing in 6 classes. I arrived
      just before 6PM for the 7PM start of practice and the track looked wet and
      smooth on a cool evening. There were two rounds of practice before the
      heats and then features. The heats started two abreast but the features
      started in single file. This made for very few cautions in the feature
      races. The kart counts were not too high with 4 senior champs, 5 junior
      sportsmen blue, 5 box stocks, 6 junior unrestricted clones, 12 animal
      medium and 15 animal heavy. Jared Fountain won the senior champ heat and
      led the entire 20 lap feature from the pole but was disqualified in tech.
      Brian Hutcherson started in 4th and drove hard to finish second and thus
      claim the winners prize. Noah Doss took a non stop junior sportsmen race
      from the front as did Jessica Connell in box stocks. Amber Burchette took
      the junior unrestricted clones in a race with one yellow. Donnie Nall made
      some good passes from a third starting spot to win the animal medium race
      that had one yellow. The animal heavy feature closed out the night and
      after two yellows (one for the early leader blowing) it was Nall and
      Jeremy Mullis trading the lead each lap toward the end. Mullis started 5th
      and held off Nall on the last lap to capture the win in a close hard
      fought feature that ended at 11:05PM.
