I went to Merritt Speedway with my Mom, Dad, Papa and Meme. I had so much fun.
I had dinner at the track, I ate a good hot dog and amazing french fries, my Mom said it wasn’t a bad price either.
It made me happy to meet Rick Stewart, he drove the number 78. He was one of my Mom’s first interviews when she was a kid. My Mom said he was a great racer and he is very very nice . I took a picture of Rick and Betty Rodebaugh by his 1993 Championship photo that’s on the wall under the pavilion. My moms last interview on Rick Stewart is here.
I love it when I get the opportunity to watch one of my favorite Late Model drivers Dona Marcoullier race.
Merritt has a very nice speaker system, I could even hear it clearly through my headphones.
Their camera person is in the infield in a boom bucket truck, it is so funny, cool and very smart.
I have always liked listening to announcer Roger Williams, he is clear and informative.
I also met Mike Blackmer (Merritt Owner); he is very nice. He knows my Meme’s whole family; it was fun hearing them talk about the old days when they were kids.
Thank you Merritt Speedway.
“See you at the track”
