I was leaving heavy rain in Michigan.
I stopped for breakfast near the Eastern Michigan Fairgrounds (track #929) in Imlay City, Michigan.
The wait wasn't too bad driving into Canada.
That's the U.S. to the right.
Welcome to Canada!
I always enjoy the Canadian scenery.
I'm headed to Aylmer today.
Aylmer, Ontario, Canada.
My first view of the Aylmer Fairgrounds.
There would be plenty of time to tour the pit area for today's racing.
It's always fun to get a close-up look at the racing machines.
Everyone at these races runs a "low-buck" operation.
County fairs and auto racing go together very well.
This was not the "first rodeo" for many of today's competitors.
I also had plenty of time to see the fair.
Canada and poutine is like America and apple pie.
Where did these eggs come from?
Today was the finals in the cow judging competition.
The "pulling" contest was just finishing up.
More county fair competitions.
See the muppet driving the wagon?
This guy is controling his movements and "speaking" for the muppet nearby!
It was time for lunch.
This all looked good.
I went with the sliders!
They were great.
These folks always put on an entertaining show.
This is what today's racetrack looked like.
Maybe it looked like this in 1955.
Is he beating a dent out or in?
The contestants in "best looking car" competition line-up.
We're almost ready to race.
Track #1,700 is in the books!
This is "democross" racing on the oval.
The men in white are the judges and lap counters.
The leader has completed 14 laps.
A future trackchasing fellow competitor?
The jumps made this race interesting.
Nice paint job.
It takes a beating and keeps on ticking.
Racing has always been a family affair.
Check out this Pontiac.
This is a new kind of windscreen.
It was time for a restroom break.
The track is being watered now for the upcoming figure 8 racing.
The figure 8 racers are ready.
Track #1,701 is now in my rear-view mirror.
The figure 8 racing involves a good deal of contact.
Every car gets their own lap counter.
Fun at the fair.
This might be fun to do.
These are all front-wheel drive cars.
On the way out I bought lots of taffy for the folks back home.
