44, Most of these Sprint Guys I meet are kinda closed mouthed. Seems like it carries over to here ....

You, Kerry and a few others on here were big helps in my rookie season this year.
Gonna do East Bay in Jan with the Modified, we run with the Sprints so I'm hoping to learn all I can from the big dogs, for when my season starts for real in March.

Darn!
There went my last post. It's now off the main Forum index page.

I wish our our season had fared better. Crashed out in a pre-season warm-up race and never recovered. I suppose it just gave the team an early start on next year.

Does anyone here race any of the other open-wheel classes besides a sprint car? A midget or mini-sprint...perhaps a four-cylinder sprint car? Sorry Mod4, your modified is only half of an open-wheel. LOL

Good luck and best regards,
Gerry Dedonis

I meant thanks 44H and GERRY ... not Kerry ... sorry ... typo.

44H, you thinking about East Bay at all ?
I'm gonna do the 3 Day Mod show, then we run as a support class with the Sprints ... Hope I can learn something by being around the best of the best.

I raced 250 micro's for 7 years before sprints, and I have raced a 600 and 1200 both also in shoe-for-a-weekend deals. what is your specific question on smaller cars?
Jason, Florida is like 2800 miles... you find me a ride for all the races and he.ll yea I will go... drive there.... not even a remote chance...

Oh no specific questions 44H. I was curious as to everyone's previous racing history and also recognize that many racers also compete in other classes. Some race go-carts or shifter carts, mini-sprints, etc to keep their skills honed or for the enjoyment of it.

On some of the Midget racing forums, there is a raging controversy about USAC's Focus Midget Division. For those who are not aware of this division, the cars are powered by a stock Ford Zetec 2.0 liter that has been adapted for midget racing. The engine is sealed and can only be acquired through one approved supplier. The Focus racers run for much less purse than USAC's National division. Many of the local midget clubs feel this class will ruin them as the promotors will sign with the Focus group for less money.

Any thoughts on the future of racing, open-wheel racing or "Spec" Series racing?

I fully support the "Focus Midget".

About dang time, the Midget motors were costing as much as a 410.

When you take the horsepower out of the equasion, and you are left with Chassis and Driver Ability, who wins? The fans and the drivers. Who loses ? The people winning with cubic dollars and those getting rich from those dollars.
