0:00 Flemington Speedway, the most magical, unforgettable, exciting, compelling, filthy, dangerous, loud, eternally mobbed weekly racetrack
1:18 Doug Wolfgang who I saw both win there and hit the wall so hard, he broke his sprint car completely in two
1:53 a blizzard of dirt being propelled at you by a gale force wind that's what being in the stands of Flemington was like, people came there wearing goggles
3:29 when Flemington closed all those people just disappeared
5:11 I was wearing a Fleming t shirt that night, I had people coming up to me and said, Wow, you've been Flemington?
5:19 it's one of these things in life that falls into the category of too good to last.
