Brian (2005 GT), Brain's friend Larry (2006 GT) and myself were the only ones to show up @ elko April 28,2011 for some great saturday night racing :)

Track was dry, the campgrounds and parking in some spots were wet. The only negative thing all nigh was the wind. It blew around quite a bit plus because of it, it was windy.

Quite a turnout for spectators who showed up for the 2nd night this year of circle track racing, which including your modified, sprint, elko, monster trucks, spectator racing, and bus racing (brain was in). Something new they had their were 4 drift car racers which torn of the track, burning rubber around. One of them was a truck which has a coyote transplant motor.

The race action itself was pretty good. The best though in my opinion didn't come until after the sun dropped and the spectator racing started. MAN O MAN, i wish i got some of the action on video because couple of those guys were plan nuts. I believe there were 10 or 12 all together.

The first race, 1 of the cars almost hit the outside wall going into turn 1. #2, some guy spun down the back stretch into the oughter part of the infield and in one of the latter races a 70's something pontiac trans am was racing a 94 mustang GT. He got loose coming off turn #4 and spun on the front strech nailing the entire side of his car into the pile of crushed cars they got along there for the monster trucks to jump. As for the overall winner who beat out everyone; MUSTANG GT!

Brain, Larry, and Myself were allowed to race each other. (I Had thought my dad caught film, but idk what he did) I will not be posting up anything because i don't have anything.... IM SUPER BUMMED!!

It went well for us. I couldn't get traction at all from off the line & lite up the tires and went sides a bit. While Brain shot out fast but down the back stretch got a bit loose (bobble the car, nothing serious). Outside of that, nothing special.

Although I do have video as well as post race comments from Brain and his bus race.
