On Sunday, my editor told me to check out the 28th annual Dirt Trackin’ Show at the York Fairgrounds Expo Center. Even though the show’s website gave no indication thereof, I expected to shoot some pretty dirty, gritty racing, and therefore prepared for the worst by wearing my oldest jeans and a worn sweater.
I knew I was wrong as soon as I entered the expo center. Instead making my way through large crowds cheering on dirt-churning racecars, I saw there were about 200 racecars on display and very few people walking around. Vendors and local drivers whom I met confirmed my fears: Sunday was turning out to be the slowest day of one of the slowest show weekends they’d seen in years.
But some people were out to have fun anyway. Here’s one.
