You guys need to be more serious. No Crying in Baseball, no Fun in Slot Racing. Didn't you read the pamphlet?

In this bright future you can't forget your past.

United we stand and divided we fall, the Legends are complete.
I'm racing the best here at BP but Father time is much better then all of us united.
Not a snob in this hobby, after all it will be gone, if we keep on going like we do, and I have nothing to prove so I keep on posting because I have nothing to gain.
It's our duty to remember the past so we can have a future.

Pistol Pete you will always be in my memory.

I want to know how many cars the trailer took out!

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

I was wondering the same about the Nerf Sail on the Hummer.

The winged hummer belongs to Mike Iga, a wing car racer. biggrin.gif He decided to join us for some Saturday night fun, and has put his own personal style into the mix.

The Trailer was a challenge! Several times cars coming up from behind ended up pushing the Trailer of DOOM out of the way.  :laugh2:

All in good fun! This is a fun race to drive different every week and growing. biggrin.gif

I don't do FB, do you have the rules listed anywhere? I have three BM built cars, but don't know what class they are for.

Kevin,

The rules for this Hardbody series are posted in Slotblog's Rules Library, just under the Race Announcements forum.

Here's a LINK to the Rules Library.

And here's a LINK to the 2013-14 Mid-American Hardbody Stock Car Winter Series rules.
