Ice Racing in California

Saturday marked the first time I'd gone to an ice racing event. Indoors (naturally...what location did I mention?) at the Oakland Arena. Started out with almost everyone crashing, but as the evening wore on, and the ice got chewed up a bit, it became quite entertaining.
As the T shirt says, "They're nucking futs!!"
Start here for stills and video.

Oh...one of the crowd shots has someone playing like he's got a Santa look...pay no attention to the crowd shots.

Cool picures. One thing, aren't you using the word "crowd" a bit liberally?

Well, based on the "crowd" pictures, yeah.

Thing is, and this would only be known if you were there, is that the empty seats were occupied when the racing was going on. Pic was about 15 minutes before anyone showed up on the ice.

Hey Ray.

Cool Vids. I sure it was fun to be there live. And Noisy...

Missed you at the show in San Jose last weekend.

Hope to meet up sometime for a ride.

Stay Dry.

Nucking Futs

Speedway is still run on a few dirt tracks in Australia with the same sort of stripped down bikes. I'm lucky enough to have a good track with regular racing only 30mins away on the Gold Coast (Australia) . It's always fiercely hot in the Oz summers but I'll bet ice racing during summer on some of the local rinks would be a very popular venue for hot summer holidays. Now ya got me thinkin.

Cheers
