Tonight is the inaugural night race at Kalaeloa Raceway Parkâ€™s dirt oval. This is the third race day at the oval track. The classes have been gradually growing each event and this one promises to be another KRP success just like the previous night events held at the facility. I arrive (at the Parcel 24 Barberâ€™s Point facility to document the event for the Kalaeloaracewaypark.com website) never too soon and Iâ€™m fairly surprised at the lengthy line at the gate. I take and post a quick Facebook photo of the encouraging indication made by the triple lane entrance thatâ€™s backed out nearly to Coral Sea Road.
Once parked I make my way (actually I hobble on crutches as my broken foot is still a bit of a problem), across the gravel parking lot, around the bunker and up the stairs of the control tower. The timing staff graciously offer me a stool and electrical outlet which I canâ€™t do without in order for me to record all the action. I sit down and quickly realize there are a lot of racecars coming out to pack the track. As I start writing down all the descriptions during practice, otherwise known as â€śhot-lapsâ€ť, I see new car after new car, after new car. This id the first night race for the stock car track at the new facility and the attendance and participation just doubled instantly.
