Dirt Track Auto Racing - Another Zufall Win!
Talk about keeping it all in the family. . . Jeremy's dad, Jim Zufall #15 won the Charger event hands down. This is his third win since July. When asked how he did it, his answer was, "I just love to race. I do it for the fun of it." Jeremy helped his dad work on his car to get it ready for the dirt track race. He and his dad help each other.
Jeremy is working on his car (remember his motor blew up) to get it ready for the race at Challenger Race Track in Indiana Pennsylvania. He isn't sure if they are going to have it ready in time, but they are working hard to do so. Challenger is a 3 day event where there will be plenty of dirt track auto racing for everyone.
As a spectator of dirt track auto racing, I've learned that getting down and dirty is for the fans as well. The late models race around the track at speeds up to 120 mph. Pieces of dirt fly everywhere no matter where you are sitting, but you definitely don't want to be on the turns. Layers of dust settle on your clothing, on your skin and in your hair. The noise is deafening. It takes some getting used to but it is exciting and fun, especially when you are cheering on your favorite dirt track auto racer.
So congratulations to Jeremy's dad, Jim Zufall, for another great win!
