This view from my lodging location in Roseburg, Oregon confirmed it was going to be great weather for this afternoon's racing.
I didn't really need a hotel room when I had a rental car this big.
Can this be turned into a career?
I was about ready to enter the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Roseburg, Oregon.
Parking would be four bucks.
All of the fairs that I have attended this year have been packed.
Since today was August 8, I missed all of these entertainers.
It was a long walk from where I parked to the fair's entrance.
Admission to the fair was nine dollars today.
Like most fairs the “fair food” was plentiful.
I'm a big fan of New Orleans style Cajun food.
The Jambalaya was spicy and delicious.
I passed on the sugary stuff.
The fair was full of kids looking for fun.
I had never seen this ride.
How's this for a packed grandstand for today's races.
The Douglas County Speedway features a slightly banked asphalt oval with wide sweeping turns.
The modifieds, some topless, were the first class on the card.
Hornets are a popular class at the track for both high school students as well as adults.
I wish more tracks offered a scoreboard.
The track offers a better than average souvenir shop.
The beer garden was doing well.
What's not to like.
There is nothing in the infield to block the spectator view.
The hornets got a little wild once in a while.
Car #41 was spinning in the last picture and is about to spin this car out in the next turn.
I moved around the grandstand. This view came from the very top row.
This looks like a major riot in a woman's prison doesn't it.
In reality the ladies were all trying to get a free t-shirt being shot from this truck into the stands.
This clean-up is a sight that is seen at asphalt tracks but not dirt tracks.
This was the “mechanics” race. It featured cars from several different divisions.
The white road markers make this look like an interstate highway.
I've been wanting to get to the Douglas County Speedway for years.
The stock car feature offered a good field.
Where's the bathroom?
I love seeing the vintage race cars like this '56 Chevy.
This era is probably my favorite of all-time.
The Far West offers its share of “rugged individualists”.
Notice the negative camber in the right front tires.
The driver of this car in the wall was 78 years old. It took several minutes to get him removed from the car.
I took some time to enjoy the fair.
I have seen indoor winged kart racing in this building. Today it's being used for something else.
Do they sell hot tubs at anyplace other than a county fair.
These jets might blow you out of the tub!
I was amazed by this baffle system in one of the fair buidlings. I designed the baffle system in the RANLAY Events Center at my home in San Clemente.
I enjoyed some local dancing before heading south to Medford, Oregon. Tomorrow I will head off to trackchase in my
