Racing At Crossville 2013-08-30

Love my new camera and zoom lens, but it certainly isn't a professional grade set up, and doesn't capture low light situations hardly at all. So, no photos of actual races as we move into autumn and start losing sunlight sooner - but still, some good stuff. Had a good time, even though K & D is 0 for 2 at this track. Two DNF's - bummer deal. But, still better than sitting at home and watching TV. Thanks for inviting us, Scott.

Racing at Duck River - 2013-06-15

Winner's Circle Dreaming... and counting our blessings.
As always, we had a wonderful time at The Duck chasing the checkered flag.   On a more somber note, keeping the Dearing family in our thoughts.  "If there be any truer measure of a man than by what he does, it must be by what he gives." Bishop Robert South (1634-1716) Hug your loved ones tonight and every night.  Life is short and unpredictable.  Many Blessings.

Racing at Duck River 2013-06-08

Finally, no rain! As always, wonderful experience at the Duck River Raceway! We dug up all the cameras (I hope to never mover 2200 miles again... will we ever find everything?!?), so hopefully we will get some videos posted by next race day. Son on the camcorder, me with my DSLR, and the GoPro mounted to the No. 20 car. Got some good stuff... now just need to find time to edit and post them.

Good to see all the kids out - and under control and not being a safety issue.  The next generation of drivers are already in the pits!

If you see a picture of your car on this blog, email me and let me know. Be happy to make a print from a high res version of these pictures.

Final Check-In With The Staff

Beats watching TV any day!

No couch potatoes here!

Race Results from April 13th

Missed racing last weekend.  Wish we could be at the track more; alas, while we'd like to run our lives around racing, that's not possible at the moment.  Still, it is the best thing since sliced bread when we can do it!
Race Results for April 13th - showing up is half the work - and all the fun!

Standings as of April 20 (for current standings, go here.

Apparently some of the earlier races did not really count points, so we don't have as many as we thought we did.  Still, the standings as of today still has us running with the pack.  They won't be running our class this weekend, though.  I imagine they are going to eventually cut our class since there aren't enough of us each week to make us profitable.  That would be truly sad as the track and facilities are looking awesome, and we are really enjoying running there.

BTW, you sharp looking modifieds... we might be chasing after you, next season... got something brewing in the garage...

In the Points!

Not bad for running with a faster class of cars. So far, since he was the only one running in his class, I guess that makes K&D Racing the points leader, LoL!
(Race Results Below.)

This is obviously where we are getting lapped by Mr. Williams, 
but hey, I actually got our car mostly in focus!

Duck River Action Shots

I haven't quite mastered the skill of shooting through chain link fencing yet, so those gray, out of focus lines in the pictures - fencing.

Today it's all about the No. 20

Hello, Everyone ~ More pictures from the Duck River Raceway practice day last Saturday; however, today's photos are all about the No. 20 car.  More photos of other cars later on.  Hope you enjoy!

More Photos from Duck River

Sorry this isn't quite in focus - but it is my favorite color!

Waiting in line - Duck River kept everything moving well.

My favorite driver!

Don't mess with the T Rex!

Duck River Rocks!

Had a wonderful time at Duck River today for open practice. Prices were more than reasonable, facilities are looking wonderful (they've been working hard all winter and it shows!), and the staff and other drivers were awesome. My husband and I both spent several years in The South before we met, and after a few decades, we are finally back home to stay. Loving that Red Dirt!

Here are some photos. It will take me a while to post them. Also, I'm not that great with the action shots yet, so even though I took several hundred pictures, not all of them are actually ready for Prime Time. BTW, if any of these photos are of your car, let me (Karla) know if you would like a print or a .jpg for your website/FaceBook.
"Ladies & Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!"
No. 20 In Green

Lots of awesome vehicles out there representing a lot of hard work!

Of course we are partial to the No. 20 car!

Looking fine!

Love the rumble of the cars!
