I grew up surrounded by stock cars... we had countless Monte Carlo bodies sitting around our house.. just waiting to be put on a frame and taken around BelClaire Speedway in Belleville IL... then we progressed to IMCA Modifieds... about that time I left for college.. but I still LOVE going back and hanging out in the pits.. my dad is a "lifetime" member... and former Tech/ Tear Down guy.

Ahh how I miss being pelted with dirt clods while sitting in turn 2...

I've played with oval track dirt sprints off and on since the late 70's.

we have 4-5 guys that run various brackets of dirt out of our shop (2 other guys still do drag only). for the most part we went from drag to asphalt to dirt (although there's a good asphalt money race coming up that we will probably set a car up for). my dad still does many of the transmissions and uncle & dad do the engines for most teams. we all pitch in for the suspension & body work.

what are you running?

if i had more time around the shop (i work 5 hours away), i would set up a car.

around here they have a class called "Hog" that is the entry level. reasonably cheap to run and nice for the guys that want to drive without putting loads of time into the setup (speaking of after the initial build).

My Doc? no.. he hates it! He's a straightliner fan.... (which I am too but I like the dirt track too) .... One day we'll make an east coast trip... if we can ever sell this freaking drag bike.. otherwise the only trip we'll be making is to the poor house!

Oh yeah.. which bikes? The Busas or the Fun machines?

I found a pic of me and my dad at the dirt track.. from about 3 years ago I think... and the car #53 is a guy I grew up with.. both of our dads raced.. now he is starting out on his own.
