PRACTICE PUSH STARTS & PITS

 

Orangeline

 

Before the Cacklefest on Saturday night the cacklecars are given opportunities to do either required (new car or new driver) or "practice" push starts. Since there is no schedule for this deal, our photogs may have missed some. Here is a representative sample of what we got.
