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.

"Barney did a fantastic job at race directing too.."

You mean for a rookie! :laugh2: Since Keith had the cam on the screen I just let you guys see what was going on and watched the race close so I could kill power faster so the cars did not wreck too bad. I was nervous about trying to give rundowns and looking away from the track for long.

Shame I missed out on this proxy even though I had the car ready.
Great video!

 

Would be very up for a Dynamic proxy like this.

Good bump.....

 

That was so much fun .. love the smiles on the driver legends faces.

This is a hard act (impossible?) to follow.

 

Dyn-Astro .. DC-706 powered the slowest damn car there. As the owner I think I had just as much fun as the fast guys.

 

I totally felt like I "won"....  and in the "Spirit"

 

Those guys are not only legends ... they are Slot-Car Heroes.
