From Marfa Public Radio:
It’s Saturday night in West Texas. On a stretch of land outside of the border town of Presidio, cars are lining up two-by-two behind a straight, quarter-mile racing strip illuminated by stadium lights.
A summer storm has just passed through the area, but the weather’s calmed. The sun’s going down on the surrounding mountains as families tailgate out of their truck beds, lined up along the concrete track.
