Audience and drivers alike experienced some thrills, chills and spills at the stock car and truck racing championships played out on the Roughneck Off-Road track in Liverpool Sept. 18-19.

Eighteen drivers pushed their cars to the limit as they competed for the number one spot on a cloud-covered, wet Saturday afternoon.

The sun shone the final day as 79 trucks and their drivers competed in a test of speed and skill in some heart-thumping racing action.

The next racing action, the final races of the season, are scheduled for October 23 (stock cars) beginning at 1 p.m. The trucks will go the next day beginning at 9 a.m.
