Default How many Rs in Auburndale?

Have you noticed that almost everyone mis-pronounces Auburndale? They add an extra R and say ARBurndale. Now my wife, a former yankee who naturally mid-pronounces things, is saying it that way too!

No worries! My son and I are on the way to ARBurndale tonight for the twin sportsman features, Legends and other classes. We cant wait to be back at a track!

Bones, I think you got the extra "r" right but are putting it in the wrong place.

I believe it is "Auburndale-r".

Like the Kennedys and "Cuber". For that matter, 04, ain't it Florid-r?

Used to put up with a Staten Islander. "Law and Order" became "Lawr and Ordah".

At any rate, enjoy a "be-ah" whilst you are there.

Actually, I love the joint and wish I were going.
