[TrackChasers] 30 to go
- A Friday afternoon check of the Weather Channel after work found at least 3
or 4 bands of rain moving across upstate New York. Thus I canceled my
planned trip to Caroga Creek for Slingshots.
This afternoon I met Guy at New Jersey Off Road Vehicle Park in Chatsworth,
where he confirmed that Caroga was rained out. So I made 2 consecutive good
Friday calls after Frozen Ocean canceled last week.
NJORVP was a disappointment after seeing the CORR last week at Unadilla.
There were few trucks and buggies. The layout was pretty good, sandy with
lots of ups and downs. But even a 10 lap race is just too long as most of
them end up breaking down long before 10 laps.
It was hot day, sunny and 90 degrees. Only a very few people spectating.
This was the 3rd consecutive new track where I didn't have to pay to enter.
For me it was track #470, for Guy #778. I'm done for the weekend while Guy
plans to do Starlite, NY, tomorrow.
NJORVP runs again tomorrow. According to the printed schedule, countable
races run from about 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. (something like that, trying to
remember from Guy's schedule). The only other countable, wheel to wheel
racing, at the track this year will be on September 7-8.
