Before the Cacklefest on Saturday
night the cacklecars are given opportunities to do either required
(new car or new driver) or "practice" push starts.
Since there is no schedule for this deal, our photogs may have
missed some. Here is a representative sample of what we got.
The only regret this year was
not enough people shots. We were all focused on the cars, how
dumb is that?
