Hey Andy I didn't know you raced cars. How do you like dirt oval racing?

I used to do road course racing in the SCCA and COMMA and still have my track car. One of these days I plan to get back into it when I have some money again.

Yes I have been racing since 2003 (last year and this year I kept pulling the car out just once or twice to stay as an active driver)... We are probably moving back up to A-Modifieds again or Street Stocks next year and probably will run about half the races...

Had some transmission problems in the heat race so I pulled off early in that, in the feature we got those problems corrected however the car was bogging down really badly and I wasn't able to do much but tag along at the back of the field, one of the fastest in the class broke an axle on a restart and rolled 6 times right beside me, his wheel actually landed on my hood, he was ok, I was really going to try to setup an incar camera, woulda been a hell of a shot had I gotten that setup... anyway, just wanted to work out all the bugs and still have a long night and morning ahead of us to get ready for tommorow and Sunday (which is the whole reason I got the car out anyway), changing carbs and the starter went out after the race was over (go figure)...

Was able to finish the event tonight at the Murray County Speedway
11th place finish out of 16 that started the A-Feature in the USRA Hobby Stocks

Back in my early days drag bike racing (1986)


I`ve also been known to do a 6hr off road race on 4 wheels


My youngest daughter likes racing also



one of my daughters


even a little dirt track in my blood


I also like to mix it up on H2o

Before the new paint job



I like to go play down in Okla at the sand dunes



back in the 90`s I liked to smash cars on weekends Very Happy

I can honestly say when I raced modifieds weekly the Dirtworks car I had was magic. The Harris car I could take or leave! Nice Monster truck, I'm sad to say good sir but I would rather eat salads for a year than watch more than 5 minutes of drag racing...

Also I really like road racing wish I could give that a try Bart!
Steve I have always wondered, have you ever hit a fish when racing on the water, that looks like ALOT of fun.

Yea I`m not a fan of watching "any racing" thats why I`m a racer....lol
Racers dont make good fans....rotflmao

I love racing my mods Very Happy
that red car was my 2nd Dirt Works car and I wouldnt have anything else Wink
I`ve had many others but none of them were as easy to drive and set up as the Dirt Works cars.


Yea I have hit and killed many fish and even had a small one hit me Mad and land on the motor back in 2005. Laughing
