    we have a couple of aruba friends who are drag race junkies!!

    have you ever considered going to the races in aruba?

    and of course i am thinking....is there food there ?

    and YES...there are food trucks.

    aruba, such a tiny island and LOTS to do.

    Dont worry if you havn't been. As a local myself I never went. Its a real niche crowd on the island but its a strong niche with dedicated people who love the sport! Aruban cars and teams also compete regularly in the states and elsewhere.

    Very interesting. One of my neighbors races one of his cars and travels a far distance to do so a few times a year. I myself have not raced since I was young and that was all illegal street races. Yep, I had a wild side when I was younger...I had a 68 olds with a 455 rocket engine that FLEW....I never lost a race in that car, lol. I am thankful I no longer feel the need to be an idiot. I would love to check this out over the summer when we are there for 2 weeks.
