I ran the Glory Days Nostalgia race at Maple Grove. We went three rounds and then ran into someone playing games and moving around in the staging lanes. Threw me off my game because i was pi$$ed and cut a bad light. Yeah Well. Mark

That's awesome Pop! Stick around long enough you get to see some pretty cool stuff :mrgreen: I got a picture yesteray of my oldest on a bike pulling his son in a 'bike trailer', made my day. Things like that are small. but huge at the same time.

Props to the "Pops Racing' team!

Sorry guys....rained out AGAIN!! Last week we went three rounds at the Maple Grove nostalgia race. Then i ran into someone with a .001 light. That was the end of my day. Not too bad, made a few bucks back. Next week Fun Ford race at Maple Grove Raceway and the week after we're off to Mason Dixon Dragway for the first time. Meeting with the Comet East club for a show and drag racing. Mark
