I really enjoyed my visit to Crystal Motor Speedway, It was my first time ever going into the pits at an oval track, holy cow they had a lot of cars.
The drivers do watch out for fans but it is your responsibility to watch for them and be very careful.
I really enjoyed watching the crews work on the cars they even stood in the engine compartment.
Ron allowed me the opportunity of riding in the truck with him so I got to watch cars from inside the race track, oh my they are so busy I got to hear them communicate on the radio. So much goes on that us fans don’t even realize.
Crystals water train is awesome and the driver is pretty talented to be able to control it and go so fast. After we came out, I got to ride over the scales what a fun experience.
I got to meet such great people, Ron of course he is hilarious and so nice and gives the best hugs. I love Mary Jane she has the nicest smile and voice .
I liked that I got to meet retired tech inspector Terry Williams. I also met Gene who is a very nice official and gave me suckers. Thank you Gene.
I was so lucky that I got to meet a nice and fun to be around late model driver #10 Tom Dusen and the awesome Rick Stout and his wife Kathy. He use to drive the modified #410 and LM #55. That was so exciting
I walked up to the tower and met Sue, Kris and Kim. Sue and Kris talk to the drivers over the raceciever and during the race they keep track of what position the cars are in. Kim works on the computer and tells Ryan and I think Ron where the cars are support to be and maybe who is responsible for bringing out a caution.
It is so good to hear Mark Cowan and Leo Pego announcing they sound so good and clear and I love that they say drivers names and numbers so us kids can learn who they are talking about.
The food was great, the bathrooms were clean and easy for me to use in other words kid friendly
And I can’t say enough about how comfortable, safe and roomy the grandstands are -kid approved!
The races where awesome, I loved seeing the drivers moving their arms in the no wing sprint cars. I saw one of the best racing moves I have ever seen by Dustin Dagget #85 sprint car as he passed for the win just at the line, that was SO slick! There was a lot of passing in each class and the top 3 got BIG trophies, they were taller than me.
Ron put on one of the biggest firework shows that I have ever seen.
I cant wait for next year to go back to Crystal Motor Speedway.
“I will see you the next time the trophy is lifted”
