Default Re: Mini Stock Racing - 1970's & Beyond

The sad ending for Crayola. It was the final week of the 1998 season and I had T-boned Suzie Bricker's Capri the week before. I learned several things from this incident: first, my welding abilities needed a little more work. Second, those tire walls are a lot harder than they look! Third, once you're on the grass, brakes don't do you no good with slicks! Fourth, John Witthar builds a good roll cage! Fifth, "horse collar" neck supports can give you a sore throat. Upper front bumper nerf to protect the radiator is probably still out there about 50 feet from the point of impact!
