It’s hot out here, and all of these race fans aren’t making it any cooler. A welcome breeze blows through the venue while the fading orange and gold light of the sunset reflects off the backs of the racers waiting to wind their way around the track.
Rowdy fans line its edges, gripping beers in one hand and pumping their remaining fists high into the air as they cheer for their favorites. It seems impossible, but as the event begins, the racers seem to pick up speed in reaction to the shouting fans. Eventually, one makes a sudden, mad dash to the finish line. The crowd roars both in celebration and defeat as a winner is declared.
