This Friday evening I took my oldest grandon to the local track for a fun filled evening of crashes and burns. One race was one of my faves called the "FLAG POLE RACE". The cars are the basic figure 8 cars. The catch is the lap is a dog leg and at the start finish line all cars in order to finish the lap must circle around the flag pole (tire). Many close calls and lots of crashes occur at the flag pole. My grandson loves seeing the crashes. No injuries and no serious crashes but lots of crashes none the less this evening. We had FUN. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

cLOSE cALL - a CLOSE CALL AT THE FLAGPOLE
I do it for two main reasons. Because I love spending time with the grandkids and I love the races myself. Here's another shot as usual. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

We used to go every Friday evening many years ago to the derby races. The last car running AND moving won. Sounds very similar to your flag pole race. I know we really enjoyed watches those vehicles run into each other. You could hear different individuals in the crowd actually yelling "watch out!"

It sounds like you two have alot of fun together. It is good to know that nobody gets seriously injured. I bet seeing the crashes are fun though.

How cool! My son would love something like that. His favorite part of the sprint car races is when they crash. Boy, those things can bounce WAY up high! LOL

That does sound like a lot of fun! I would like the crashes the best also- adds excitement- as long as no one gets hurt- We for years went to watch demolition derbies at the fairs. My sig. other entered many- boy was that fun to get ready for them- It scared me to no end when he was in the ring- I loved to watch them- but did not enjoy when it was his heat- He won crazy driver one year- and got to go to the finals- and 1 year he won it all- I was impressed- but it still scared me!
