Time for the Outlaw 200!!
This weekend is my favorite dirt race of the year - the Outlaw 200 at Fulton Speedway! TONS of cars, in six divisions. And weather permitting, the biggest crowd many see this year will be at the 200, formerly known as “The Victoria 200″.
I bet at least 70 modifieds will be in action. Need I say more!?
I have a ton of memories stored away from over the 27 year history at the Vic. Most of them good (like the ridiculously dangerous and inappropriate parties the first few years), and some bad (like an emergency room stay with a friend after a fistfight, and the firing from Gater for some of the carnage at the first couple of parties).
Another memory is the crappy weather that we waited around in all day last year on Saturday, even after the plug was pulled.
So far, the weather report for this weekend looks cold but dry. Which is perfect. I can’t wait for this weekend - see you there!
Distributor. Cap. Rotor. Wires. Coil. Module. Carburetor. Fuel pump. All fuel line. Fuel filter. Fuel pickup. Jets. Spark plugs. Air cleaner. Wiring. Switches. Gauge lights. Timing. Valve adjustment.
All new or replaced or checked yesterday and last week trying to get this racecar to run. We’re going to change some more stuff today. Not much left though. Sure will feel good if we get it. Be a long 60 laps if we don’t!
The good news: Barry and Jason are fast, and both handicapped in. Go Team Tapout!
Classic is still awesome though, and we will continue to have fun no matter what. Today will be a great day!
Congrats to Pat Lavery and Dave Cliff Jr. for being the fastest in time trials.
It ended up being a bad connection. We replaced the plug that goes to the coil / ignition on race day, and that finally cured it. Ran great in warm-ups, and for the first 8 laps of the feature before the week ended for me in a huge parking lot. Hell of a way to go out.
