    Are you staying in the same class this year or are you moving up to run with the big boys?

    Car looks great! I think you should run it without the body around town, scare the **** out of people

    I do have this....(sorry...crappy cell phone pic)




    But I don't really have the money to move up yet. I'd need about another $5000 worth of stuff to put onto the motor, like for the 5 stage oil pump, carb, headers, etc. So...I'll probably be in this class again this year. If things go good, maybe late this year, or at the start of next year, I'll be able to move up. Oh, not to mention that those guys run gas shocks that are about $4000 for a set!!!


    Brad, yeah, I know a guy that races boats, carbon fiber bodies aren't cheap! he probably has over $100,000 in it...easy.

    GtnMaZumOn...thank you Sir.

    turbo, it's an 04 Rocket Chassis.
    It will probably be the last year that I run this chassis. I'll probably get a new Rocket for next year.

    Why not a Bloomquist Chassis?

    That's Right...
    It's a Chevy...

    You can run a chevy with a Bloomquist Chassis. He does have a bunch of funky rules. But I can't afford one of his chassis for one, for two, Rocket Chassis is right down the road, and most people around here run Rockets, so if you need a part at the track, someone has it. Plus the guy that owns Rocket races at the same track that I do, so he's always there for set-up support.

    I think that there are only like 2 guys that run a Bloomquist Chassis with a crate motor.

    Thats what i love about short track racing, if you need it someones got it and will give it to you and more than likely help you put it back together.

    I might have missed it, but is there a reason why you re-do all the body work every season? I mean, I know that obviously there's damage done throughout the races and whatnot, but why not just keep the general scheme and replace the parts that were damaged?

    I'm sure that it's a blast, kick some butt out there.

What a night!

    You pretty much have to replace everything. There isn't much left at the end of the year. Plus I wanted to change the colors this year. I've had black and yellow for two years, so I wanted something new...and this is what it looked like after the last race.





    Here's what my cars have looked like so far.

    just finalized everything with the decals. They'll be done on Sunday...I'm anxious to see how it looks. I'll post pics when it's done.

    No, I was never down there. We raced Late Models from 1997-2003, and they never really had any big shows there during that time, then they closed down. We've raced at West Virginia Motor Speedway and Tyler County though.
