Well, it's one of my favorite times of the year and that is the Thanksgiving holiday where I can eat till I look like the Michelin Man and the enormity of food piled on my plate is considered ok because it's a special holiday. If you saw this plate you would stare in amazement just believe me. The other part I love about this holiday is the fact that Chris Martin at Cochran Motor Speedway is putting on a special Thanksgiving weekend race called the Gobbler 100 and I couldn't be happier than to be at one of my absolute favorite race tracks instead of ninja kicking someone for a toaster oven or tv at a pointless Black Friday sale. Stuffing my face and then to watch all of my favorite drivers strap in to drive for a big payday sounds pretty much like heaven to me. I figure the excitement of the Gobbler 100 will get my blood pumping enough I can burn off some of those Thanksgiving calories. Keep that in mind in case you eat too much too. Racing and blood pumping will burn those calories, or at least let's tell ourselves that to make ourselves feel better about all that turkey and dressing.
Seriously, why would you not come for this huge race? Let me help you out, you won't want to miss this for anything. Not even that toaster oven. Thursday will start with a practice for all divisions and gates will open at 4pm and practice from 6-9pm. Grandstands will be free and pits will be $15. Friday will have gates opening at 2pm and hot laps starting at 6pm. Grandstands will be $10 and pits will be $30. Friday night will have qualifying and heat races in all divisions and an added bonus of a Southern Outlaws feature and also the top 6 in late model qualifiers will run a Dash for Cash! Saturday will see gates open at 12pm and hot laps beginning at 4:30pm. Grandstands will be $15 and pit passes will be $35 or if you plan to be there all three days you can get your pit pass for $75 for the weekend. Features and last chance races will be ran on Saturday with Bomber, Pure Stock, Superstreet, and Sportsman running for $2000 to win in each division and late models running for the big $10000 to win payout.
