​ After changing from the Mini brute motors to the Retro hawk and falcon 7, the cars were much faster, more wrecks at first, but toward the end things had settled down to steady fast racing.

​Close racing and ties are a part of racing at the dungeon, Avis lost out to Pablo buy a few feet for first place in the JK Indy and John beat  Pablo for second in the GTP.

 

​For a possible run what you brung race in the future, pictured are some of the cars.

Yesterday was hilarious, for a variety of reasons :D

-I started messing with Bud long before daylight, on the long road northbound I told him I was gonna "bite his face off" on the track :aggressive:

-Dallas Jackson showed up, which was a delight to see. He brought his daughter, Kim, who said she hadn't raced in 30+ years but wasn't afraid to race and marshal :good:

-John Clow asked to borrow some tape so I handed him a roll out of my box. He says "Hey, what's up with this ?!!" The inside was marked - "CLOW" :laugh2:  Busted

-After I won JK Indy, I started up messing with Bud again, waving a push broom around. He didn't say anything, just growled and bared his teeth at me :shok:

-John Clow won a giant Hershey's chocolate bar in a raffle giveaway then made sure Bud and I had a big Cracker Barrel meal afterwards so we wouldn't think to ask him for some of it on the way home. It worked :)

-Some racers were going so slow they lost track of their cars, and others were flying so fast there was no time to avoid them. In GTP I rear ended somebody so hard it ripped my (taped and bulletproofed) Bentlee body into a shredded beef taco. The car looked like a wadded up ball of paper. Crisis management in the pits, I twisted a long piece of (stolen) filament tape completely around the body and slapped it down. Ran good as new  :D  That doggone stolen tape works better than normal, I can't explain it......

-In Retro Flexi, I tailed Avis for about 5 laps at full tilt boogie trying to pass clean, then put him right in the wall. Only at The Dungeon can you do that and still be friends :friends:

-Instead of biting my face off at the end of the day, not only did Bud drive all the way down Alabama while John n me slept off our food comas, he gifted me a new in box TrueScale Ferrari 330 body :dance3:

Sounds like Buddy and I missed some real carnage but we found some of our own in Lewisburg, Tenn. We'll be at the Dungeon on 2/4/17 for some of our own. :bomb: :diablo:

I am very happy to see that Mr. Dallas is back in action.  To bad he had to bring someone so he wouldn't be last place.  Just pulling your chain Dallas.  My plans are to start the Dungeon in March then alternate with Dega the month after.  If things go my way that is????

Sounds good Bobby. To bad you couldn't make both. Get with Bud, He said he would start coming to Dega if he had someone to come with him.

Red just needs to buy that race track and move it to Mobile that would make it easier for us to come

Something must be in the air cause, I got a call from the long lost Vince!!!????  He was trying to talk me into bringing him and a buddy to the next race.  I'm not sure that I want to stir that kettle up again.  :dash2:

Bud; You already know I don't have Pay Pal and I sure don't have $200. It's a good thing too because I know a guy that would run you over with a bus for that kind of money. :sarcastic_hand:
Bobby; Don't bring Vince  this month. Bud won't be there and I really want to see Vince and Bud racing next to each other. :laugh2:
