Just a short recap from the track last week:
Monday - lay the floor boards back down in the back of the race trailer. Install and hook up the water pump. Install and hook up the hot water heater. Cross wire the two. Blow the water pump. Go get a NEW water pump. Pick up Malasadas, get blood work done, go to bed LATE.
Tuesday - Get UP early. Hook up and pull out the trailer. Load gold cart, BBQ grill, race car, food that we bought. Head to track. But two run cards. Park and set up trailer in the pits. Pay everyone that needed entry fees. Have to trade one one card in (we got two green ones) for a red one. Hubby gets bitched out by the promoter for NOT buying a Crew pass for me (we never have had to do that when buying two run cards). Buy a Crew card. Go home for the night.
Wed - Make two test and tune runs. Install new water pump. Top off water tanks. Hang out with friends. Go home to boil 60 lbs of spare ribs then stay up until 2 AM adding sauce, while hubby went to sleep.
Thurs - Made two qualifying runs in each class. Then hang out for a while. Went home and made chili and Portuguese bean soup for the weekend. Went to bed.
Fri- made two qualifying passes in each class. Had about 45-50 come to party in our pits. Spent the night in the trailer.
Sat- Made one last qualifying passes. Dropped my cell into the toilet in the trailer. Tried to dry it out for the next 2 days.
Sun - Lost in round one in both classes. Hitched up the trailer. Went home.
I gained weight (water I hope from all the salty food), had to order a replacement cell phone ($150!). We have LOTS of food left over (all in freezer now) Slept 10 hrs last night, after doing laundry and dishes.
Boy...I'm HAPPY to be back at work today!
More when I get home!
