Re: "When racing didn't break the bank..."

Definitely not arguing that the Badger formula is wrong. We race Badger (shameless plug, Season opener, May 7th, Sycamore Speedway, weather looks VERY favorable). All I'm saying is that through the...

Re: "When racing didn't break the bank..."

Re: "When racing didn't break the bank..."

I agree! Now I suspect that statement is made a little tongue-in-cheek, but when we talk about a Speedway Toyota "national engine" in a midget today costing upwards of $80-$100k, what did an Offy...

Re: Nascar puts the heat on Briscoe? Why?

Re: Boos Named Promoter at Gas City

Only got to go there one time (so far). The Hoosier Hundred was "rained out" and we had nothing else to do before the 500, so we made a beeline up to Gas City. I think Puterbaugh Jr covered the...

Re: So is there a real, lasting tire option for full up spri

So, I first thought this thread was a joke, you know, sarcasm. But I'm starting to believe that you guys really believe the solution is to run rock hard tires that last a season.
