Oberlin, Kansas was one hot place to be in early June this year, as the thermometer hit 102 degrees during our track time on first day of the High Plains Vintage weekend, accompanied by the ever-present Kansas wind that was blowing at about a 40 MPH clip. Danny and Shelly Berndt once again put a heroic effort into making the High Plains Vintage Classic weekend one to remember, organizing heats and mains in four divisions: Sprints cars, Modifieds, Midgets, and “other” for the rails and roadsters. With the daunting weather and a track that was hard to get hold of, one might assume the weekend was a bust, but nothing could be further from the truth. What made everything worthwhile was the company of those who made the trip. The old cars and old car conversations were a treasure, and we got to run as many laps as we wanted. Special thanks go out to Danny and Shelly for finding event sponsors, organizing everything, and being great hosts.
