    Well, my Dad and myself made our "pilgrimage" to the "Midwest Mecca of Mud"
    that is Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night, April 28th. It was the Budweiser World of Outlaws Spring Challenge, plus 360's. Absolutely awesome facility, even better racing. Fast and awesome. Some big crashes too. Everyone should visit this track at least once in their life. I know I will go back again.

    The 360's are cool, but there is nothing like watching the Outlaws down there. Even if you're not a race fan, you ought to see these guys. Doing something like 155 at the end of the straights on a 1/2 mile D shaped oval.

    A shot of the pits before the races, we had great seats section E (right behind the flagstand) and in row 38, really high up with a good view of the whole track.

    I only got a couple of racing shots, pretty tough to get a descent picture when they are going as fast as they were! It was a fun day at the races, even if Donny Schatz won, (I'm a Joey Saldana fan), but they really gave a good race!
