Highlights

 

All-Time Favorite Wyoming Track:

 

Interstate Speedway – Sheridan

 

 

 

Current lifetime trackchasing state rank: 1

 

 

 

 

Best Memories:

 

The Interstate Speedway in Sheridan was my 16th career lifetime track to see. I was out in Wyoming visiting my girlfriend at the time. What do I remember about that track visit from about 1970? It was dusty. I sat in the fourth turn. By the time the cars reached the start/finish line, they had disappeared in the dust.

 

 

Most tracks in Wyoming are in very rural settings. I liked the Big Country Speedway asphalt set up. The figure 8 race in Jackson, Wyoming was unique with their “LeMans” type run to your car start (above). It was almost like stealing to be able to go to the Park County Fairgrounds and pick up two countable tracks. Finally, getting to go to Wyoming during the cold weather season and see an indoor race was a luxury.

 

 

Oh, one more thing. That girlfriend in Wyoming back in 1970? Whatever happened to her? I married her! That girlfriend is now “Trackchasing’s First Mother” and the “World’s #3 Trackchaser”. Who could have figured?
