ChumpCar World Series: Pacific NW Style
Walking out of ChumpCar World Series Race Central Sunday afternoon on an all-weather Labor Day weekend, I encounter The Ridge track workers carrying an aluminum rail.
Now, who of you would not process that something grand is about to happen?
A question proffered to filming for posterity received a resounding, “Yes! C’mon!”
Giggles surface while walking the Paddock and watching these guys hunt down the lucky recipients: The Great Canadian Oil Burners, Team # 411.
Arriving at their pit stall brought all sorts of incredulous smiles and exclamations, “We actually get to keep it?”
It’s yours, you ‘bought’ it!” came a wink and a nod toward Turn 5’s Armco aluminum barrier, bump-tested in Saturday’s afternoon endurance Race #2.
“Wow! Let me get straps for the trailer!”
You think they’ll see their way fit to letting us through the border?”
Prior to signing their aluminum contract, the entire team and their fans had recently returned from a Race Central foray, buying out every last item of The Ridge seasonal swag that fit.
It seemed a win-win-situation and a grand exchange!
Needless to say, ChumpCar World Series rocks!
