The 49th season of racing at Thunder Road International Speedbowl got underway yesterday as cars revved their engines and fans streamed through the doors to witness this great event. According to Ken Squirer, the co-owner of Thunder Road, auto racing is still the â€œlargest spectator sportâ€ in this particular state. Short track racing plays a key role in this and the quarter-mile oval track Thunder Road is the perfect place to get the season underway.
From the 1st to the 3rd of November 2007, auto racing fans will be heading to the Perris Auto Speedway to watch the 12th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals. This popular racetrack situated close to the Lake Perris Fairgrounds in Southern California has earned a reputation for hosting successful events, and the 12th Annual Budweiser Oval Nationals is sure to live up to the expectations of auto racing fans.
Not many people in the world will have heard of the term â€˜Folk raceâ€™ before. This is because this type of auto racing mainly takes place in European countries such as Sweden, Finland and Norway. The sport receives little coverage but is very popular due to the low expenses and little driving skill that is needed to participate in it.
This track is so full of the rich traditions of NASCAR that no devoted auto racing fan should fail to make a pilgrimage here at least once. Some of the best NASCAR events of all time have taken place at the Michigan International Speedway. The track and its owners have weathered some bad times, and emerged victorious, in the truly fighting spirit of all NASCAR competition!
