You are all crazy, I hope you realize that. Greg Lee has run the last two races here. He is now on a godfather chassis. He smoked by butt two weeks in a row. Sunday day race we both recorded 12.1 lap times. Last night he made the 11's. All this done in Yamaha Heavy.

Have you taught any of the afgans to race yet. Maybe all they need to change their outlook is a little time behind the wheel of a kart.

Doc

IKF will never combind Flat heads with animals, they are slowly phasing out the flat heads. I supect that at nationals next year that there will be another class of flat heads replaced with animals.

Let me give the one that plan on going to Tunica MS, the guy that came up from El Paso two races ago went last year, there were a 150+/- in stock medium 4 cycle. Now he was fast here but not fast enough at Tunica, he qualified 56, so he drove 1200 miles for 15 min. of racing. This is WKA rules so be prepaired to take new tires with you to per tech. My understanding is you show up at pre tech with new unmounted tires and they bar code them, Oh no preping of any kind on tires.

Then I guess they are not running WKA rules. If not WKA rules then what rules are they going by?

Tunica is indeed open tire rule. Wish more folks would go to the WKA rule. I have ran WKAs tire rules...I spent less on tires vs all the doping and compounds required for open tire rules. The tire deal has put a lot of people on opposite sides of the fence. The first year WKA went to the tire rule the numbers were down but the racing was great and I did not have to spend all day doping tires...was able to enjoy the event instead of mixing, heating, and doping. Guess I would have to say I'm on the tire rule side since it was less cost for me.

Tunica is probably one of the best promoted events I have ever attended. Definitely a lot of 4 strokes and it's tough to make the main for those guys. The track did come apart on day 2 last year...reminded me of old Caplin days when we ran with the mini-sprints. Like most big races; if you can stay patient and avoid the wrecks you can move your way to the front. Got spun last year on lap 1 and ended up 18th on lap 2...just stayed out of trouble and made it back to 2nd behind Dee Paschal

I had been thinking about going the last few years and was definitely impressed with the show. Just another one of those places you have to try at least once if you get the chance

As I speak I'm prepping tires for Tunica. Looks like 858 pre enrtries; so the total entries will top out over 1600. 17 Unlimited All Stars so far so I can count on at least 35 in the class. Looks like Ralph Woodard is dusting off his old 2-stoke shoes and is pre-entered. Got my old pal Willis Colpitts coming out to wrench for me so that should add at least a couple of tenths. Can't wait for next week...either way it will be fun. Hope everyone is doing well.

hope you are doing well also. be sure to carry on the tradition with Willis regarding campfires, solving the worlds problems, and elimanation of stored liquids from cylindrical storage vessels. Laughing
We are doing great here, (Kyle is still up in New Jersey at school)
He is doing awesome. he has several nice offers for coop next semester. he must chose between designing artifical joints for us old guys, or working on the mars rover project. Seems like a few months ago he was thrown in the infield pond after his first main event win. Dang time sure flys

Pat, I thought you said Kyle was working with some new form of metal alloy of some sort to be used for the new joints. You said somthing about it being very rare or somthing.

Well Tunica was a blast. Did not run as well as I would of liked but anymore it's more about getting out to the event, seeing old friends and just enjoying the moment. Willis and I took care of plenty elimanations of stored liquids from cylindrical storage vessels and of course we solved all the world's problems. We will be forwarding our recommendations to the Secreatry of State and the National Security Council.

Yes my friend; how time does fly!

good job Greg.
When we hauled that camper to all those nationals I questioned driving all the way for a few days racing. Looking back I can barely remember a race, but I sure do remember watching drive in movies from the back of the truck while the kids chased fireflys, fishing all day, and long warm nights with a good campfire. " kart racing" is so much more than racing karts. It took me a few years to figure that out. keep up the "kart racing"
