I've been meaning to edit these pics and get them up here since... well last June. I've decided that nice editing is probably never going to happen though, so here is an unedited dump of some of the pictures I liked best. What a day!
It was really surreal to be in such a beautiful outdoor setting with race cars, a steam cog railroad, and helicopters all operating in the same space!
I do believe this is the car that crashed on the second run of the day... what a shame. I overheard the driver after run 1 saying he had so much torque he pretty much was leaving it in one gear the whole run.
I enjoyed watching Travis Pastrana and David Higgins and their codrivers frantically running around trying to get an idea of their times between runs...
I find the little nicknacks and doodles people put on their cars fascinating....
I love the rock chock under the wheel...
One of the benefits of coming directly from camping at a bluegrass festival in Vermont: I had food and a bed in the back to nap on. In fact I have to wonder if some of the magical nature of the day was due to the fact that I left the festival at 4am after playing music all night and then ended up at this amazing place! Either way it was an amazing day. This was the second road trip I took in the saabaru about a month after buying it, the first being the trip down to STPR.

I love me a livery with white on the hood... I'm not sure why.
The turbo on the other side was covered in tin foil...
