This happened some years ago, but has been me biggest memory ever since. This was the last night of my 2nd full season. I had come in first the week before and the first 2 cars from last weeks feature start in the back. So the first race (top 6 in points), I finshed second behind the points leader. The heat race was next coming out of the last corner pulling passed the points leader in coming up on the flag, he cut up into me and smashed me against the wall going across the finish line. I came in second again. Then it's feature time. Strating once again behind 20cars, made a early break thru the crowd by lap 8 then the car start pouring steam out. Lap 10 a cautions came out and now the steam really starts coming out hard. After a couple laps the steam slow as the car begins to cool. The green flies once more and the the steam keeps coming all the way threw the checker and it's my victory this time. It seemed like the hole place was cheering, what a rush. Still love talking about it. I have a trophy that says champion race winner. Not the chamionship, but it seems like it to me.
Hope this wasn't to long and everyone enjoys. GOOD LUCK

my favorite night was last year about mid season me and my cousin are 16 and we were racing in the men class and none of theme really cared for us. we alsways ran top 5 but never really any better, one night i sliped into 1st and 10 laps later we had a caution. i looked behind me and i be darn if my cusin wasnt right on my tail. we went green and finished in the same order. it was really a fun night. and hopefully it will happen again.

I don't really have a cool RACING story but last weekend after "surviving" the race and finishing 5th the flagman came down and told me since it was my first top 5 i could get my picture taken. I thought that was the coolest thing yet having my car in victory lane holding the checkered flag with the Open Wheel champ to my left and my dad on the right. It may seem stupid to you guys but when your 14 you celebrate something like that all week long( It's only Thursday!!)

If you wanna fly, you gotta buy.

One of my favorites is when I let my wife drive my pure stock about 6 years ago.She was all for it until it was almost ready to race.She was in the car and I was standing beside her not paying any attention to her begging me to let her out.I hit the top of the car and told her to go on out and she finally did.She had a ball and thanked me for making her stay in the car.She was a lap down but didn't bother her a bit.Everybody in the pits were cheering.

My most memorable night. I won the trophy dash, the car was on that night. In the main the dang starter wouldnt engage. The car behind me pushed me to get me going (we are all friends in the class) but the officials seen it and put me from pole to the rear. MAN i was mad. I drove my *** off and ended up placing 2nd in the 8 lap main. To me that is pretty alright.

Raceramn I hear ya!!!
I let my wife race my car the last race of last year and she was very timid at first... It was a powerpuff with about 10 cars and 15 laps and she went straight to the front after 3 laps and held it til the last lap... She had a car come in on the inside of turn 1 and she gave it room but never let out of the throttle.
Unfortunately there is not a wall on turn 1 & 2 so she went up and did an end over end 2 times and landed on the left side.
She broke her arm but not her spirits!!! I am helping her build her can now...
Now I am the guy who wife flip the H*LL out of that car!! hahaha
Take care...

My biggest memory would of been July 3rd 2003. I just got my car finished from a big wreck i was in a couple of weeks before. I started toward the front and knew the car was fast but how fast didnt know. I stayed patient. Let some cautions come out. Didnt really challnge anybody or fight for the spot just stayed around third. Well after the caution came out or points leader was out front. Ive ran with him but he was fast and hard to catch.(our track has a one lap rule) So thinking of a way to catch him i decided he left in the corner i wansnt. Just go in hard to catch him. That worked real well after that me and him switched some spots he dropped back to third and another car started trading with me. A caution came out and i was the leader. This makes you feel good but gotta remain calm. We ran the last laps the points leader got back up fornt and we traded spots. Then he went on to take the win and my setup sucked by this time so i had a push and the other car got on the inside of my coming off 4 i still ended up 2nd. i was so excited. heres the twist. I went through tech our horns have to work. Mine didnt. I blew a fuse to find out later. I got d/q. I was so mad. Sorry so long.

Not exactly speedway but dirt road anyway. My biggest thrill was back in the 70s running rallies (Twin Cam Escort). One rally I actually managed to finish higher up the points (around 5th) than the current World Rally Champion. Next rally he kicked my **** but just that one week it really felt great.

Oh yeah. Car hasnt ran the same since. **** in gas tank switched that. Then dist was loose. Car was on one night but retards in my class jumped the start like usual and hit my lr and i had it going down still had top 10 but car started to push real bad. Then one of my pit crew left key on battery dead car wouldnt start. Hopefully better luck this year.
