Culmination | A1

culmination |kəlmənāSHən|
noun [ in sing. ]
the highest or climactic point of something, especially as attained after a long time

In very few words, last weekend’s season opener was simply one of the most explosive nights of racing we’ve witnessed in a long time. The perfect storm came through and kept industry professionals and fans on their toes as weather patterns and forecasts changed hourly, finally breaking to sunlight that allowed perfect track conditions to ensue. The barrage of talent on hand, the hours of preparation put in, the emotions that can’t be contained, and one stadium packed with fans were just ingredients to this perfect recipe of racing. There was something in the air, and the season opener went off like an explosion at Angel Stadium. It was time to race again, and this Saturday night under the lights was a culmination of the months leading up to that moment. The gates dropped, the final checkers flew, the glory was taken, and the memories will never fade. View a timestamped slideshow of this night in January known only as “Anaheim One.”
