The morning of September 8 more or less washed in with more rain. We have had the wettest last month in our local weather history. Great for the "green things" not so great for today's adventure. I was off to see the American Flat Track Race held at Williams Grove Half-Mile in Mechancisburg, PA. The drive was in light rain. Always enjoyed seeing the films on this type of motorcycle racing; never been to one. Should you get the chance to attend one in your area it is a great way to spend the afternoon/evening. The event crisscrosses the County with the race schedule from Spring to Fall. Should be a race not far from where you are.
Mud. Sticky Goo.
Arrival at the track the sky was overcast and threatening, but no rain falling. Most of the field was
walkable without issue, however trying to get to the edge to shoot required a muddy sticky trek.
Walking was like having ten pound ankle weights. Should have had "muck boots". Who knew? Definitely not a Louboutin or Ferragamo day - save these for a F1 race, perhaps Monaco!
