The Jefferson County Fair in Fairfield is taking place this week and they have a few grandstand events that pertain to motorsports. Wednesday night they have the Tough Trucks event where guys and gals bring in their trucks and run them through a course that includes jumps, turns and of course, mud, trying to see who can do it with the lowest elapsed time.
Friday night, quads and motorcycles take to the track for several classes of competition. Saturday night it is the Twin States Pulling Association Truck and Tractor Pull. Sunday will see the demolition derby wrap up the grandstand events and they will have fireworks after the demo derby.
Next week is the July 4 holiday and there is a lot of big events scheduled at tracks in the area and I will be writing about all of them in the next Pit Stop.

Thanks for reading. I’ll see you at the track. Gone racin.’
