Oshkosh, WI

After watching the off-road truck and buggy racing on TV for many years, I finally got a chance to see it in person. We went to the Oshkosh Speed Zone Raceway this afternoon to attend the Traxxas Off-Road Championship races. This is a dirt track with lots of jumps and tight curves. We got there in time to see the time trials, wander through the pits and watch the trucks and buggys being prepared to race, and, of course, watch the races themselves. While we didn't stay the whole evening (it was getting cold and we didn't have sweaters), we saw some real exciting races and several crashes. Even Susan had a good time. Like most sports, it is a lot more fun to see it live instead of on TV. What a hoot!
