Unleash Your Inner Redneck

Okay so that got your attention! I knew it would. 
But of course this was written by your innkeeper at The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast you thought I was just kidding...
It's a family event (but we warned as the track heats up so do the tempers!)
Here is what I am talkin' about...Franklin County Speedway, aka Thunder in the Blue Ridge, what some might call an outlaw track. 3/8 mile asphalt oval in these Blue Ridge Mountains, corner banking 22 degrees and straight banking 12 degrees. 
Admission is $7 or $25 a carload. Racing every Saturday night until November.
The promoter Whitey Taylor is allowing filming of the redneck ruckus out at the track for a TV Show called "Buck Wild" reality TV.  A sample of the races you might "experience" as you unleash your inner redneck are:

LATE MODEL 
MINI-STOCK
STREET STOCK
UCAR 
ROOKIE UCAR
MINI-CUP
ANYCAR
OLD TIMERS
FLAT HEAD FORDS
MODIFIEDS
Visit the Franklin County Speedway website for more info on upcoming races and directions


Don't blame me if you taste concrete when they hit the wall and it flies up into the stands. HINT- bring a chair. and, no this is not made-up TV, this is real. Cars WILL flip, tempers WILL flare.
(PS I can tell you what an Obama burger is, if you want to know, or you can go to Franklin County Speedway and find out yourself. The track is about 20 minutes from us here at The Claiborne House.)
