Fun Day at Beautiful Thompson Drag Raceway Beckons Mr. Mann

West Salem, Ohio had a bug
up its ass. There was a ban
on Vespa motor scooters and
the mayor hated Italians. You
could get buzzed for a couple of
bucks so everybody drove out
there on Sunday. A straight shot
from Akron and in 15 minutes
you’re out of the tire smell. Burning
vomit. Grow up with that. His
friends got very excited. He did
his racing on the street. Once
he left parts of a transmission all
over West Market Street. Trying to
impress a girl who had God beneath
her sweater. Went for some basketball
player with a shoved-in face.
