My wife and I hosted a few Thanksgiving at my original raceway, 10+ years ago, and with the usual host experiencing a recent flooded basement, CR was pressed into service again.

I floated the idea to my CEO of renting Downriver Speedway for our very large family Thanksgiving dinner. End of discussion.

Looks like I missed out. I don't have much family anymore, so we haven't had a holiday dinner for a long time. I

miss those get togethers that I remember so well from my childhood. So great that your extended family can get

together for such a good time.

I came across this pic, on FB, that one of the relatives took.

 

My 2 nephews, on the ends, on Purple and White, on about 8.5V,  had some great duels, while the young kids in the middle, were hootin' and hollerin', on about 6V, floored.
