Just rolled in from the track. Heck of a good time! I highly recommend going to anyone! (Frankly, more spectators means better show of support means more support from the City -- e.g., funding)
Finally met Frunkin in person. The youngster had a heck of a first track experience:
4th place in the sprint final
2nd place in the miss-and-out (just barely coming around a girl to take the position -- sorry man, had to say it!)
Then, in the final race (the consolation race -- points race): He hung at the front of the pack till the first sprint (5th lap), then as the others were slowing after the sprint he hammered it and soloed to victory taking a lap on all but three of the others (finishing just short of a half-lap up on those three). He ended with 16 points (second place had 8). Heck of a night!
P.S. Good advice on the jacket JW -- it got chilly there!
