The Racer Edge!

Took my Amphi to the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mi.
for the Onsted, Mi car show. I live 5 miles from the track. The show
got to be to big for the small village of Onsted, so M.I.S sort of
took it over. There were 1180+ cars & trucks. Only 1 Amphi. The
registration was $12. For another $6 you got a hotdog, bag of chips &
a can of pop..&...Oh Yeah! Two laps around the M.I S. track with all
those 300...400... & 500 horsepower engines in those hotrods. I
started in the middle of pit row & by the time I was on the track I
was in 4th gear @ 50 MPH. I tried to climb towards the wall but @ 50
MPH it didn't want to stay up past half way up. Going into the back
straight away I got up to 65 MPH. Got passed by a couple on the
outside & one on the inside. I slowed to 55 MPH for the turn 4 &
stayed in the middle of the track until the back straight away where I
came down to the inside & stood on it again. Back up to 65 MPH.
Seeing all those cars in the rear view morror coming at me was quite a
rush. They didn't get the chance to pass me 'cause it was time to
pit. Next year I'm taking my Dakota R/T with me too!

Yeah...That's swell Ray...But look, if you want a REAL rush why doncha come
with me next year after Celina down the Pennsylvania Turnpike. After a
couple of downgrades through the Alleghenies with methamphetamine-gobbling
truckers trying to shove you faster down the pike by your bilge pump spout
and that weekend mock race thing will seem about as exciting as the checkout
line at CostCo.

That may be, but I have no desire to become road kill by some
trucker that doesn't understand what the black 55 on that big white
sign means! Ray--- In amphicar-lovers@y..., "Al Heath" <aheath@u...>
