About 15 thousand fans showed up for the day's festivities, which included the always popular taco eating contest.

The crews of the top 20 qualifiers each had two representatives to see who could eat up to ten soft tacos and guzzle a Pepsi to wash it down--all in a span of three minutes. That was worth the price of admission. Oddly enough, the winning team was the Taco Bell crew of Butch Hamlet. After tearing up some tacos it was time to tear up some race cars.

The heat races are always a crash bang affair and today was no different. The top 5 finishers in each race made the big show and earned a shot at the 15 thousand dollar first prize.
It didn't take long for things to get ugly in the main event--how about on the very first lap. That was one of a record 19 cautions on the day. It collected seven cars in all. Most spent time behind the wall to make repairs.
There were six different leaders this afternoon. Bassett's Butch Hamlet led 57 circuits today and was out front with just 42 to go, but the Taco Bell machine blew up and Hamlet came home 23rd.
Frank Deiny, Junior of Mechanicsville survived all the mess to take the checkered flag, but the race ended much the way it started--with lots of crumpled sheet metal and even more bruised egos.

Chefs have put the finishing touches on a 10 foot tall Haunted Mansion made out of gingerbread.
The 700 pound creepy creation is the centerpiece of its Haunted Mansion Holiday.
It took two dozen chefs more than two weeks to build.
The mansion is modeled after the movie, "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and is entirely edible. Ingredients include 350 pounds of sugar, 225 gallons of frosting, 150 pounds of gingerbread and 50 pounds of candy. (------------)
