Well, I'm Gonna Miss Her

The flagging economy has really hit home.  The theory goes something like this:  Since everything in China is booming, like America once did, the Chinese are building stuff, stuff that requires lots of steel....and not too surprisingly, they've developed one more bodacious appetite for it.  Scrap metal is the new economic engine, the redneck's dot.com bubble,  with scrap metal "firms" springing up quicker than dog-fennells on a ghost track.

 Can you say... "out of…

EFI: Back to the Future

Posted on April 13, 2011 at 2:30pm 2 Comments

Yeah, it was WAY cool back in the day, the 1960's.  "Stacks" poking through the fabricated hoods of '37 chevy coupes. Hilborn fuel injection was a hallmark of the modified scene for years.



Come-to-find-out, it's deja'-vu all over again....NASCAR is rolling FI back out.  But don't be looking for the tell-tale injector stacks, or anything, for that matter, to look, sound, perform, or actually do anything any different that the cars are presently doing.  This a'int your dad's fuel…

Ghost Tracks: Races of Christmas (Day) Past

Posted on December 10, 2010 at 11:54am 2 Comments

There was once a dirt track, on the edge of South Carolina, and until just a couple years ago, its ghostly footprint was still alive. Supposedly, family heirs became the property's owners and the lure of potential mega-bucks on the last collapsing breaths of the late economy proved a too great a temptation. The dozers were called in and the old track vanished into memory. The property never sold.…

Ghost Tracks of Christmas Past

Posted on December 3, 2010 at 12:11pm 4 Comments

So, just who of you Racing Reunion-ers had Jolly Ol' St. Nick drag an electric racing set down the chimney? Hmmm? I'll start the confession and admit to having the big guy do that........ twice. The race car sets had brand names like "Aurora" and "Tyco......the finest in model motoring" (I could have that slogan backwards). They had "H.O." and "full-size" versions, and I still don't know what "H.O." stood for, other than they were the real little cars. Christmas of 1962, Santa must have climbed… Continue

Bobby,

A fellow RR member Jim Lambert has a 1972 Pinto on a 1979 Troyer modified chassis with a Halibrand quickchange, 396 BBC & Muncie 4-speed, but it is not a full-race motor.  It has an ATL fuel cell and Simpson 5-point harness. Please go to his page and take a look at the photos of this car (white Pinto). Jim would consider entering a few vintage races if he could find a place to run. He has been told the car is not eligable at Shelby. Do you think he could run with your Bell & Bell club?

Bobby,

I'm going to be in your neck of the woods this weekend. Plan on stopping by the store and getting a battery for Laura's pickup.

See you Saturday.

Bobby,

Jack Walker has put me on archives of the Richmond County Journal that is bearing a lot fruit. There is a lot about Rockingham Speedway and even some on the Lumberton Speedway.

Would you like for me to send you what I find on Lumberton for a future Ghost Track update segment?

I am also working on writing up the history that I have on the Bennett Speedway along with some pictures. Would you like to have this for a future Ghost Track update segment?

If you don't want to use the material I will post it on the NC Racing Heritage or Tracks Gone But Not Forgotten pages.

Let me know what you think,

Dennis
