Cool temperatures, a great track that was gripping like a house cat with anxiety issues, and racers eager to bury the loud pedal. That equates to a fantastic day at the track, and when you are at a place as pretty as Beech Bend Raceway, all the better. The Holley EFI Outlaw Street Car Reunion race had all the makings of a fantastic time: a huge car count (over 300 spread out across the classes with at least 24 Pro Mods on the property, and that figure is probably higher), racing that had minimal downtime (two very minor oil incidents that were kept to the starting line area only) and people who were excited to be out burning the house down in the pursuit of prize money and infamy. What more could you ask for? How about $20 a ticket to come in and watch all of this action?
Simply put, if you were within driving distance and didn’t make it out to Beech Bend for Friday’s action, you missed out on one hell of a day. It doesn’t matter that it was all just qualifications for most of the day…they were running as if it was an elimination, and you still had events like the East vs. West Pro Mod showdown to watch, and of course you would’ve been more than happy to see the monster passes that were being made, including Jaime Hancock’s absolute bomb blast run. If you missed Friday’s action, you truly missed out on one hell of a show.
