GMC Motorhome Races

When I was a kid I wondered what old folks did for fun. Now it seems I am learning.
Tonight was our GMC Motorhome Pinebox Derby. These folks take this serious. The audience really cheers for their favorites.
Check out the driver of this coach.

In line for pre race inspection and weigh in.

Folks carry the cars in protective cases and covers.

Laurie is the defending lady racer. She is always a lot faster than the rest. It seems she knows something others don't.

A few of the coaches lined up after inspection.

Teri lining up her coach.

Yep, she says it is just right. Must have been as she won this heat.

And, here they come. We have all of this computerized. No guess work here.

Jim Kanomata is always fast and lines his coach up just right.

Some of the cheering ladies.

Look at the detail on these rigs.

Jim lining his up for the last heat. He won it, the heat. Won't know the overall winners until tomorrow when they also announce the chile cookoff winner. The night of the races is always one of the most fun evenings. Lots of laughing.
Thanks for coming to the races with us. Hope you had as much fun as we did.
