Knoxville Raceway Campground
The races were fun, and it's nice to be abe to see that we've been there/done that, but the event did reaffirm our opinion that the non-winged sprint cars are a lot more fun to watch, with a lot more action, more passing, and more excitement, all-around. It is something, however, to see a dirt track that seats 70,000 in the middle of an Iowa town whose population is 7,000! We also enjoyed visitinng the Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum, which brought to life much of the history of the early sprint cars and their drivers, which our friend John in California was such a big part of.
We're now driving through Illinois, will spend tonight in Portage, Indiana, and then we're stopping at the Monaco Coach plant in Elkhart tomorrow morning to pick up a part we've ordered, before going on to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where we're looking forward to spending time with old friends Ruth Ann and Frank.
