57th Heaven

Most folks stop caring (or should stop caring) about their birthday by, oh, about the time they hit 25 years old. We s’pose there’s nothing wrong with raising a glass to a milestone age like, say, 30 or 50 or 75, but 57? What else would you expect from a group of folks who traffic in un-PC terms like midget and dwarf?

So it goes at Manzanita Speedway, where marking your 57th year in business apparently is cause for celebration. The track will line up a loud ’n’ dusty mess of races featuring a menagerie of speedy devices, including the aforementioned dwarfs and midgets, as well as sport mods, factory stocks, bombers, and Barnett dirt modifieds.
