There is bent metal and banged up knucles. There is dirt and oil and the smell of exhaust. Everywhere is the deafaning rumble of engines that care not for efficency or longevity, only performance. Filtering through the noise and chaos is the announcer calling cars to the line over the PA system. Then there are the drivers... they are old, seasoned, steely eyed and they are fresh faced, lanky. Running through the heart of this place is the family - the brothers and sisters, mothers, fathers, uncles and cousins that come out in support every weekend. They keep the cars running, constantly tweeking and fixing, trying to find that little bit of mechanical magic that might offer an advantage. They keep the drivers running through their support and their simple presence.
