Well, it was a nice show. 130 vehicles, racing till 11 PM (although I ended up leaving early). Cruise to Cocoa Beach (Ron Jon's Surf Shop from Orlando) today. Friday night was the bowling & buffet.

Here's some pics I shot during the show. There were 3 Caprice's total there out of the 130 cars, myself, Garner Ames, and RJImpala (Rendell).

Orlando Speedworld has really been cleaned up & improved since the last time I was there. A new owner has put a lot of money into the facilities and it shows.

Fabulous prizes at the end of the day, some pretty good. There were several $1000 gift certificates from vendors, a complete Solo exhaust system, BMR goodies, CHenry motorsports splitter, served cutouts, all sorts of items.
