Anyone ever tried to patch a side wall cut and run a tube in a damaged tire?

I cut a new tire and was thinking of trying to patch it and run it on the left front.

Did that all the time.Took them to the tire shop and they would vulcanize (SP)them or put a boot on them.Won alot of races on tires like that. I don't recommend doing that but if moneys tight you do what you have to do.

We did that to a brand new hoosier last year. it was only good for a spare at that point, but it kept working even though it had a serious tear and patch on it.
