Fremont runs the V8 trucks but we've never been invited. We've run Oakshade the last two years, but they didn't put us in the schedule this year.Any tracks up north this year? Oak Shade or Fremont?
When you're racing against $ and experience like that, all you can do is stay consistent and hope for an error on their part.Tomorrow we race Waynesfield Raceway Park. 6 classes are running. They are running wing AND non-wing sprint cars and modified. When those three classes are done the trucks, stock cars, and compact cars run. Not real jiggy about the format but it might work. With two sprint car classes, I expect the track to slick off. It has had one race this year. Good chance it will be rougher than a cob for us too.
Edit to my previous post: Tony has 398 wins. Not sure on Rolly. Roughly 75 give or take a few. So top two drivers in our "entry level class" are combined for close to 500 feature wins. Lol. Whenever I get my first win it is going to be sweet. It will be like the 78yr old guy who finally shot his first Ohio Big Buck.
I did swap power steering pump and was forced to swap the rack and pinion as well. Having working power steering won't hurt my feelings. Went to test and belt was not spinning. Swapped it out. Still no spin. Had to get a shorter belt (no tensioner on it.) Come back. Starter won't crank. The ol girl made me put some loving into her between races. New 5pt harness since my old one was outdated. I think (hope and pray) she is ready to rock. I also believe I figured out the oil leak/spray issue. Be nice to go thru a night with no mechanical issues.
Sort of like deer hunting, if it was easy we would find something different to challenge us. I've had a handful of laps running with them. With more consistency, I can hang with them every race. Get to the point where you may not be able to pass them, BUT they can't get around you either.When you're racing against $ and experience like that, all you can do is stay consistent and hope for an error on their part.
I'm sure your day will come!
Glad you're hopefully OK.Truck got pretzeled. I heard it was pretty gnarly to witness. Think I'm okay. Told track people i was. They believed me. Never even made me go to the squad to get checked out. Got it loaded. Drive home. Parked in front of my shop typing this and processing/digesting things. I'm at the pissed off stage.
Cross that off the "been there done that" column in life; rolled a race truck and put on a great show for the fans.
