The guys at Pine Grove Camp were able to enjoy a day of race car driving. Eighteen of the top phase fire fighters were able to enjoy their Saturday at K1 Speedway in Sacramento. Once inside, they were asked to register themselves. This proved a hard task as they are used to operating chainsaws and cutting line; operating a mouse took a little bit of time to master.
After that tedious task, the youth were taken to a room and made aware of the rules of the race track. Once that was done, they were split up into two racing groups, place on their yellow head mask and got fitted for their helmets. Each guy was given a race car with a correspondent number. These were then used to track their times on each lap and their placement in the group.
After 28 laps, separated by 14 laps each session, the victors from the groups were as follows:
1st Jason 41.036
2nd Magdaleno 41.187
3rd Anthony 41.448
1st Daniel 38.42
2nd Gabriel 38.65
3rd Robert 38.63
Awards ceremony commenced after the race and then it was off to lunch. They all had a great time.
