Indian 500

On January 24th-25th the Longhouse held its annual Indian 500 at The Village of Orange. Tribes held their car shaping meetings throughout the month to prepare for the race. Jeff Peterson and his race committee prepped the track and installed it in the mall earlier that week. Families were able to take their cars during the week to tune up and practice trying to squeeze out as much speed as they could. The doors to the mall opened at 7:30am both days for the first Nation races of the day. After a few false starts with some timing glitches, we were underway. Cars of all shapes and sizes came out that day. All eyes were glued to the finish-line to see whose car came in 1st place for that heat. All our Nation Chiefs did a great job running their races like a well oiled machine. In the end, all eyes were on the projected race screen for the final results. Every Nation had their top 10 cars and trophies were presented and photos taken of the winners. The top 5 of every Nation had the option to come back later in the day to race all the other Nation’s top 5. Speeds were fast with everyone bighting their nails at the end when the results were displayed. Again the top 10 cars recieved trophies for their efforts. A big Noonay to Jeff Peterson and the race committee for putting on another great race. Also a big Noonay to The Village of Orange for hosting.
