Can I enter the track on a red flag, or do I have to wait until they get it cleaned up and throw a yellow???????????? Here comes another PINTO. #34 is pulling in behind the field. I race in Nevada, Sorry, but I don't know what a mini mod is. I race in Elko NV and in Battle Mountain NV. All we race up here is pinto's and occasionally a toyota or two. Last year we had a courier pickup, and he was fast. If ya'll don't mind I'd like to draft to the front w/ the other pinto.(ha ha) Don't get me wrong, I am a dirt tracker ALL the way. lol I love this site. IF YOUR SIDEWAYS YOU GOTTA TURN RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slide or Sideways it dosen't matter. I've been called worse. In Elko I have won all but two features and two heat races, so you know what they call winners. Last week end, I broke the lower control arm ball joint on the drivers side. That was the end of the night for me. I have had good luck this year so I didn't bring any parts with me to the track. I will keep a ball joint from now on they don't take up much room. The green flag flies and they are back to racing. The pinto is coming up through the pack quick. By the way, how many laps is this feature? And how many laps down am I ?????????????????????????????????????

AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I raced in Elko and got beat. I lost the track championship, he won by 6 points. I would have won, but our track allows you to earn (buy) season points. By cleaning the track you can buy 20 season points. I don't agree with buying points, so I didn't help clean. The track didn't publish the points for cleaning, so I didn't know how many points I was down. I guess the competition had to keep me in check by sneaking one in on me. But thats O.K., the other car and I went to battle mountain and I won there. He had a run of bad luck, he blew his engine. I have vented enough. It's TIME TO RACE. The other pinto must have left the track so I will draft with you . The yotta's need some help. hahaha

welcome back 4s. works a pain in the a$$ aint it but with racing paying like it does here in the south we got to work to support our fun. lets get to racing. went last night to guin ala and finished fifth in the heat and was running fifth in the feature and got bumped from behind and got squirrelly and the car behind the one that bumped me spun out and they sent me to the back. now i dont know if that was a good call or not but i did question it, needless to say i was lucky to get back to 8th place finish. i still feel that i was cheated. 2 or 3 years ago i would have raised alot of cain but i've matured in racing and found out you just go and have fun because aint many tracks gonna treat you fair. what do yall think about that call? at least i finished the race this time.

Welcome aboard KWT. Nice to see new cars here. But if your a few hundred laps down how can you take the lead? JK It would be nice to see another racer that uses this site in person,but like 4s said, I am in Nevada. I raced this last weekend, and had the worst luck that I have ever had. I bought a modified in June and brought it out to race the last race and I lost my rear. I placed last in my mini and second to last in my mod. Needless to say both cars were beat to heck. My mod didn't run or steer at the end of the night, and my mini had no working shocks(thats what happens when your rearend goes airborn and lands REALLY hard)and a bad overheating problem. I am used to being in the front and my rad dosen't get mud in it. The track did everything different this weekend, from lineups to payouts and laps run. My mini is up for sale and I am going to race my mod untill I can move up from there. I hate to say goodbye. I don't think you guys want a trader in this forum, so I will check in on you guys from time to time. Goodbye, have fun, be safe, may *** bless, and most important of all TURN LEFT!!!
LOL IF YOUR SIDEWAYS YOU GOTTA TURN RIGHT!!Sideways
