It was cold as all hell during the first day of Redemption 6.0. That’s not hearsay or known by looking at an app – I was standing in the bucket of a construction lift with dew freezing to my coat. I promise you, Friday at Tulsa Raceway Park was the kind of cold that makes you want to curl up in three blankets in bed and not move until the next day frigid. But the crowds were there, the cars were there, and come hell, high water or technical difficulties, a race was gonna be run, even if it meant drivers were going to run the first sixty feet themselves. If you were watching the coverage (or you were there in the stands, like a champ!) you got to see some action that frankly, shouldn’t have happened. A no-prep race on a cold day should’ve equated to a lot of tire spin and maybe some wrinkled sheetmetal. You can ask Chuck about the wrinkled sheetmetal on the Death Trap Mustang, but as far as spinning tires? Not as much as you’d think. And without question, I got to see more vehicle undersides than I had ever been expecting to! Some of these cars skipped “wheelie” and went straight to “rip the rear bumper off, I don’t need it!” Urban Hillbilly Video’s cameras were locked onto the starting line and caught the fun as well…next time we will see if these guys can climb the ring gear on a skating rink!
