Sacramento Mile...Part 3

 Meanwhile, back at the fair...


You have your candied apples, cotton candy, corn dogs, sno-cones...




Your deep-fried kool-aid??!!??


Your JUMBO corn dogs...






And for Mrs.BC and GBC we have mamas and new borns...


Moooooooooo...


Your colorful whirling Strawberry ride...


Your multi -colored and whirling whatcha-ma-callit...


And one of these, of course...






Monday, while driving between Monterey and Oakland, I spy this ahead of me- and snap a couple of cel-phone pics. It's known as a Berry-go-round. And portable I might add...


AND NOW, BACK TO THE RACES.


Hard to miss these Day-Glo wheels...


Hard to miss Chris Carr in his red outfit, fellas? Talking about the racer in the red...never mind...






A purpose-built new Bonneville flat tracker. WWW.BonnevillePerformance.com for more info.

Zoom zoom, again...


The rest of the pics were taken after the races were over, and the fans were invited to go into the pits and have a close up look at bikes still warm from the race....very cool.


Next year I'll bring better photo gear for better action shots. It's good to see the "Mile" back in Sacramento.


Chris Carr interviewed on the podium.


Champagne is spraying...


10:00 fireworks signal the end of the race , and the end of the 2011 California State Fair.














Fans moving around the pits...


















Slammin' Sammy Halbert






















































An Aussie with two American fans...














"Looking for adventure..."






This pic of a Yamaha, taken outside the stadium before the race.











































New Bonneville based racers and street trackers.










I believe the man said 26 large bills (American), They'll build you a copy...you provide the base bike of course. Nice street tracker.


Then it's time to load them up, and hit the road to Oregon.
