ChampCar came to Nelson Ledges and made a ChampCar recreation of Nelson’s historic 24 hour endrance summer solstice race. We were asked to join them as track-side support. It was a great, busy event - but tough. The attrition rate was high thanks to the high temperatures with matching humidity numbers. The teams tenacity was admirable. The desire to finish, had teams working all night through, including swapping transmissions and more.
