Are You Club Racing Again?

Are You Club Racing Again?

We had an incredible turnout last night at my local club race track, Hot Rod Hobbies here in Southern California, that made me pause and think….is club racing back for the summer?
In recent months, club racing seems to have tapered off a bit.  Maybe it’s a seasonal thing.  Maybe it was the holidays or the new year.  Most likely, our lower than average turnouts were a result of all of those things.  Still, it was fun to see twelve complete heats of races rather than the paltry 6 or so we’ve had in recent months.
As the Midwest and East coast begin to thaw out from winter, I’m expecting club racing to make a roaring comeback.  It’s interesting to watch.  When gas prices go up, travel to big races seems to go down…and club racing turnouts improve.  Is that the case for you?  It certainly is for me.  And with the renewed energy my fellow club racers displayed last night (I had to fight tooth and nail for a second place finish with one of my favorite local rivals), it seems that the summer racing season is finally here.  I’m ready for it.  Are you?
