Chain race at Varney Speedway

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Here’s the epilogue to my epic saga about the Chevette’s I have owned.

When their useful days were done, I sold those ‘vettes on to a student of mine, a chap who was active in the stock-car racing sport.
Varney Speedway, the nearest stock-car track, and we’re talking a few levels below Nascar here, used to have a novelty called the “chain race.” That’s where a couple of actual race cars did battle while towing two other vehicles on chains. Those other vehicles had been stripped of propulsion and brakes. The idiots who volunteered to “drive” them had a steering wheel and nothing else.
My enterprising student stripped the ‘vettes of their drive trains. Those were good running motors, so I think he made his money back right there. Then he hooked them up to his race car, which, if I recall, was a mid-80s Monte Carlo. 
Chain races are filler, but they’re crowd pleasers. Buddy had the two ‘vettes hooked up to his racer and went all the way to the finals. When you chain a couple of cars without brakes to a race car, all sorts of hilarity ensues!
Alas, he didn’t quite win the championship. On the last lap of the last race, the last ‘vette in the chain went over the embankment right after the first turn, tumbled over a few times, and ended our trophy run.
But the thousand bucks he got for losing still gave him a 100% return on what he put into my Chevettes.
