Motorsports has in the recent time been an interesting type of sport that is celebrated by many alongside attracting many followers. Unlike other sports, motorsports does not only attract for the nature and fun of the game but as well it provides a showcase of its lucrative motorcade. This explains the reason why motor companies have been using motorsports to showcase the variety of motorcars and new models that they have in the market. In the same manner of other motorsports, Crossroads Dragway, a motorsport occasioned in Terre Haute, Indian, is one celebrated annually marking motorsports that attracts thousands and thousands of funs every year (Track Point Crossroads Dragways Team 1). The most attaching stories of this motorsports are not based on the history and rules of the game. As a matter of fact, Crossroads Dragway motorsports is one unique sport of its own with entry rules reduced to a level that is easily accessible by all through a mere entry charge.
In the recent past, I had never been attracted to any kind of motorsport. In contrary to this aspiration, I was rather scared of injuries out of tales of accidents which made me think that every game of motorsport would likely lead to a fatal accident. However, Crossroads Dragway motorsports has given me a new look into the motorsports issues. As a culturally celebrated sport, Crossroads Dragway held every year in Terre Haute India gives an open opportunity for everyone, particularly students to enjoy direct engagement in the sports. This sport has hence captured my attention being very appealing (Calkins, Lucy, Leah & Mermelstein 23). If every point of my life would be as interesting and moving as the moment I had in attending the Crossroads Dragway, then life would be fun in its totality.
Crossroads Dragway introduced a unique kind of racing sport that makes it even more interesting than other motorsports. First and most, unlike other racing sports that are basically deemed financial, with the aim and theme of every participant being monetary reward, Crossroad Dragway does not comply to this state (Wallis & Michael 27). Crossroads Dragways considers the common acceptability of anyone who wishes to participate in the game by inducting a small amount in entry fee and goes further to remove barrier that may limit entry into the sport. I may confess out experience that the game or sport organizers of Crossroads Dragway are rather concerned with the common participation and fun of the sport rather than the financial score of winners. This simply implies that the fun of this sport is embedded on the satisfaction derived on the sport through entertainment received by the audience and supporters of the sport than the gain of the participants (Calkins, Lucy, Leah & Mermelstein 35). Second, Crossroads Dragways motorsports involves public participation in the racing. Civilians and supporters are allowed to aboard the racing cars amidst competition as a way of incorporating social support in the race (Wallis & Michael 32). One moment, referring to literal study, during the initiation of Crossroads Dragways, the pioneer organizers had their theme scope expanded to include the essence of mentorship in the sports. This has always given a chance to young people who are interested in participating in motorsports get a good chance of developing their career along the physical experience in the sport. The inclusion of the drags on the racing ways as I did witness, also makes Crossroads Dragways different from other forms of racing sports like formula one and muddy arid racing. This condition affiliates to the race being done on the busy streets and pathways as inclusion of skills and experience are key points in the racing rather than focusing on driving speed and completion time.
Crossroads Dragways motorsports has instigated a strong passion for motorsport that keeps burning in me (High Beam Research 07). This has made me a self-proclaimed spectator of the motorsport along a steadily growing urge to participate in the game in future. However, as a student, I may for the time being restrict my concern of the motorsport to participation as a spectator. This would also give me the chance to understand best the rules of the game and the theoretical and psychological engagement of the game before embarking of the practical sporting part.
I gained the same fun and sport experienced during the Friday Fun Night with a massive memorable glamor of celebration at the Crossroads Dragways held in Terre Haute. I was captured mostly by the intermingling and inclusion of spectators in the racing times together with being in one of my most favorite sports (High Beam Research 11). In marking off my experience, Crossroad Dragways motorsports gave me more than just what is expected of a motorsport, it was more of the cheering times that marked the beginning and end of celebrations at the occasion. I felt like celebrating a culture, one defined by the beauty of the sporting activity.
