2008 World of Outlaws at Orange County Fair Speedway
Sep 24, 2008

What an incredible night. I have been a race fan for more then 20 years (and I'm only 23!) but I had never been to a race. Now, thanks to my friend Robert Wasnorowicz, he took me along with him to see the World of Outlaws at Orange County Fair Speedway. It was the first time I had seen oval track racing in person! (I had previously seen straight line competition at the same track, but not since 1997, and also a road cource race on Lake George when it was frozen, but those were tuners and don't count!) I also took plenty of video which will soon be on YouTube, you can find me here:

Terry McCarl won from the pole after leading every lap.
There was also a Sportsman race which was pretty neat-they went slow enough that I could actually make out which car was which! :)
After the race, they opened the pits and I went down and got quite a few autographs-and even got to meet some legends like Steve Kinser, Jac Haudenschild, Terry McCarl and more!
Unfortunatly it was VERY dark in the pits and the night setting on my camera is not very good-thus a lot of blurry photos. :(
A note about the photo captions-I labeled the Sprint drivers based on the entrants list in the Program. The labels for the Sportsmans were taken by matching car numbers with the Sportsman roster at http://www.ocfsmotorsports.com/Roster.htm

Orange County Fair Speedway 5/17/14
May 17, 2014

Went to Orange County Fair Speedway on May 17th, 2014. I thought I would be seeing the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars again, but I misread the schedule and they will be there on the 18th. I enjoyed the racing but I don't go to the track too often- about once a decade is fine with me, my head will be hurting for a few days after the trip. But it's something I've always wanted to do, and am glad I finally did it!

Gooney Golf, Lake George NY
Sep 14, 2017

I used to LOVE miniature golf. My health issues prevent me from doing it much anymore, but since I mentioned how much I missed it my brother volunteered to place and retrieve the ball, allowing me to play again!

Around the World Golf, Lake George NY
Sep 14, 2017

I had never been to this one before. It was a lot of fun. We played the World section first, then the USA side. The USA side is quite challenging. While there, the Lac du Saint Sacremont came in from a cruise and we stopped to photograph it.
