This is my current race car. We got it for free from a friend. It's a 1978 Chrysler Newport with a 400 big block. It might not be pretty, but we did manage to get a second last August in the figure 8 races at our county fair. I'm the big guy and my brother is the lil' guy. Happy racing. Scott

Wow! That car really looks familar... anyway.. you race in Barnum dont ya. My dad raced in the figure 8 last year, and he took 3rd. He was the Red, White, and Blue Monte. I have his car from last year and he has a new car this year. I did some stuff to his car, and hopefully she'll help out. Are you going to be there for Spring Fever Days?

Sure thing kbrotha, I'm from Barnum and I race in Barnum. I think I remember your monte. That was one brutal race! lol I'm hoping on being there for Spring Fever Days (SFD's), but no guarantees. I start work for the summer on thursday and I work friday-monday so I'm asking for that saturday off the first day I'm at work! lol I'm not actually sure if they're doing the fig 8 or oval for spring fever days, it's on my agenda to find out tomorrow though. What kinda car did yer dad get for this year? He gonna be at SFD's? Hopefully they have a better turnout this year. They cna't do like last year and have fig8 and oval and have it a sat/sun thing, they just gotta stick with one and have it on the saturday cause that's the only day there's many people around. Round up all your racing buddies and come on down. gotta get the newport tuned up and hopefully finish our compact for my little brother. Glad to see someone else from aroudn the area on the board here though! Happy racing. Scott

Yeah my dads gonna be at SFD's for sure. He bought a 87 Monte this last summer and its in really good shape. No rust at all, and we just got it started not to long ago. My dad was saying something that Barnum was thinking about having some more races during the season? That would be really nice because its the only track that runs the figure 8 around here except for Shakopee. When you find out about what they are going to do about Spring fever days and the racing let me know. My dad works with with Gretzky down at USG so they chat quite often Im sure. Talk to ya later.
