    I guess yesterday was all the preliminary crap. Races are today, but I don't feel like taking pics anymore. 330 yesterday was plenty. :doah:


    This is a kart that was left unattended...

    They had to red-flag for a while because a guy was ejected by a hay bale.

    The S curve around the corner from my house. The guy hit a bale on the far end.

    The straight-away in front of my house (the one the clown is standing in front of).

    Turns out they're doing dirt bikes on this course too. Not little 50's either, full-size bikes. Seems pretty stupid on a course that tight, and make of crete.

    Don't know aboot power, but the go-karts are pushing 50-60 on the straight-away in front of my house, and the shifter cars are pushing 90. The guy we bought our dryer from had one in his garage he picked up for $8000, and was selling for 5. Said he took it to 120 mph. Had an Honda motorcycle engine in it, I don't recall what one.

    125cc 2 strokes. 120mph is no bull****, though 70-80 is still fun.
