Racy Stuff

Mum went through some of her pictures from the racy season last year, I figured I will share. Make her happy, she has been doing this for a furry long time. Over half of her life, and she got her pin recently showing she has been a member of the club for over 30 years now. The new season starts this weekend.Hmmm, the sheeps aren't happy about racing!
A big fire truck, unfortunately a driver got hurt furry bad and the outside paramedics had to come. It was a freak accident, a wild turkey flew up in front of a guy in an open cockpit car and it hit him in the head. He is in a rehab hospital now, purrs that he recovers more.
One hot car, the firebeans to the rescue with the extingushers.
A big truck got stuck and the machine had to pull it out. Normally mum and her furiends would have their cars parked here. The moved them so they didn't get hit.
Here are the ruts from them trying to get the truck out!

Now some video! Some various odds and ends of the weekend at the Milwaukee Mile. One day was cloudy, windy and cold. The other sunny, but cool.

Then one day mum went riding in the pace car. Enjoy the ride!

Your Mom does some fun stuff! Our Mommy's Mom & Dad remember that racetrack well, they grew up in Sun Prairie.

That is a freak accident. Sounds like the driver was seriously injured.

Poor guy! I bet a cat or two would help him even more.
