No, the following pictures are not from an episode of Street Outlaws and no, MacGyver and I were not in the 405, AKA Oklahoma City.
There was no Big Chief, no Farm Truck and no Azn. There was a 72 Nova but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the Murder Nova.
Nope, MacGyver and I were at the Showtime Speedway. In an effort to get him to finally get the 67 Pontiac back on the street, we headed down there for some motivation. I think it worked too because he didn’t take his eyes off the track once. It was test and tune night.
If you’ve never been to the races or a track of any sort, I highly recommend it. It’s super exciting. Last night there was a girl testing her snowmobile which she races, I kid you not. She got that thing up to 95 miles an hour on the 1/8 mile track. Why she had a snowmobile in Florida I have no idea but the girl kicked ass.
I was quite surprised to see how accurate Street Outlaws actually is when I learned that they do in fact use computers on their cars!
The Showtime Speedway has a test and tune night each Wednesday and the actual races are on the weekend but some of the cars did race last night and some of them were super fast.
I don’t know how motivated MacGyver is but I really want to race. And MacGyver says I can if we pull out the pontiac and make some adjustments to it. The only caveat is that he says I’ll need to wear a helmet. I’m not fond of helmets but considering the amount of times I’ve crashed my bike, it’s probably necessary. (And not just for racing.)
They have a circle track too where some guys where practicing last night. The cars get really close tot he fence and I got a bit nervous. I mean they do make you sign a waiver when you go in.
I wonder what they make you sign when you race? Hopefully I’ll find out soon…
Have you ever been to the races? Fan or not?
