How can I say I live in southwest Florida without going to the Swamp Buggy Races at
Florida Sports Park at least once? The Fall Classic was on Sunday.
This is the 71st season. There is a variety of swamp buggies, from modified Jeeps
to big, professionally modified specialty vehicles.
They race several laps around a track filled with a foot or two of water. The Winter Classic is in January and the Spring Classic in March or April.
One tradition I missed is that the day's winner picks up the Swamp Buggy Queen and
jumps with her into the water. Guess I will have to return another time to see that.
