Would have thought about it if it wasn't in summer. If I could have left Ohio's winter for a week I would most certainly have come. Too much stuff going on in summertime to try to make a week open.

 

Good luck!

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

I just had a conversation with Biscuit about this race. It's not set in stone yet but we both are wanting to attend this race.

I absolutely love this Hill Climb.

The locals are fast as well which always makes a race fun and competitive.

not sure why raceways don't embrace the handout motor.  they can make a lot of cash by being the middleman. only estimating, but i think two years ago , tom thumb sold over 400  motors at the R4

Not a fan of handouts. It takes too much time to get the motors right. Have to use detergent to get the motors broke in quickly. This ruins the motors for future races. No thanks.
