It had been more than 10 years since I had visited a local race track, and for the life of me, I can’t imagine why! Saturday started out kind of wet here in the Marquette area, but by mid-day, the sun was out to stay. My 4 year old safely strapped in, we headed off to Sands Speedway (formerly Thunder Valley Raceway) for the afternoon. What fun! The folks at the track, couldn’t have been nicer, and my son had a blast! Of course, ice cream and hot dogs from the concessions didn’t hurt! Dad enjoyed himself as well, and I can promise you this, it won’t be ten years before my next visit!
