Open Wheel - THURSDAY

Was set up with the RED RACECAR books for Seekonk Speedway's Open Wheel Wednesday. Sold some books, met some fans, and also renewed acquaintances with a few vets of racing still plying their trade, either behind the wheel, behind the camera, or behind the pen.

After too many Saturday night rainouts already this season. it was great that Seekonk got MOST of its show done -- before the rains came once again, postponing the final laps of the 10-grand-to-win open modified race.

I've bored enough of you gushing about midgets at Seekonk Speedway, but the mods are just as good. I really would love to see Seekonk create a division for modifieds for their weekly show. They already have three lookalike divisions in the pro stocks, late models and sportsmen. Why not something at least somewhat different?

And one addition to Open Wheel Wednesday I'd love to see? ISMA's supers, the wildest racecars running without fenders.

But wait, I've bored enough of you over those two subjects as well.

The mods return to finish their feature Tuesday, July 3. Your ticket's still good, and if you weren't there for the green, Seekonk will offer discounted tickets so you can be there for the checkered.
