Now days I still go to the races on the 4th weekend, but I also go and cover these tradional events and share them with my readers. This year I was lucky enough to make it to two different events. Saturday a friend of mine and myself made a trip to the Port Royal Speedway for some 410 Sprint car action. Then after a few hours of sleep my son and his wife joined me at Empier Dragway for some ground pounding 1/8 mile drag races.

Port Royal was hosting the second to last race of PA's week long Speedweek that my friend and I started last Saturday at the Lincoln Speedway. Along with the sprint cars we also had extreme late models in action at the fast 1/2 mile called " The Speed Palace". The weather was great and so was the action on the speedway.

I brought along all of my Fuji camera gear, because at Port Royal we can get real close to the racing surface. This makes for great shots, both in the daylight as well as under the lights. As always my Fuji gear worked great, and I was able to capture the nights action.
