  1. yep money talks doesnt it .and that will hurt nascar once that ends .
  2. I GOT to run the last pro sedan race there ..all those years hanging out in the pits were some of the best days i had in racing .. . but the first lap i took i did what jesse told me not too .. turn to early in turn one for the exit of turn two .loop it everytime / well i did just that ..the patch everyone was afraid of in turn one didnt bother my car at all or me it reminded me of a special spot at cc speedway hit right and the car would get a good run through and off the turn ... i used it while everyone around me kept their foot off the gas i floored it .. started 4th for my first and only race and carb kept me from running with the two leaders and finished third . priceless ..turn three and off four scared the hell out of me ... .joshuas first lap there i told him just take it easy till you get use to the track ..standing on pit road i could hear his motor wide open going into three letting off for a second and wide open running one second lap times faster than the fasted local car ever did . and we heard about it after that practice the complaints on how much motor we had .. lol .jushua won three or four races in those few nights in that old ugly green chevy number 8 .. THE ONE trophy joshua holds dear over everyone he won was the wooden trophy made from the stands chris handed him .. it isnt a pageant winner but it is special home made with years of racing history behind. nick how did you get lucky to be there .
  3. A hammer is high tech .just wished they could have invented an automatic the older you get that more it hurts to swing that sucker
  4. if you had to look at this mug in the mirror each morning and having to fight and threaten the mirror with a hammer to turn back around facing you, you have to have a sense of humor .
  5. i hope they can keep on running .. one racetrack i think would still be here had it not been a lawsuit .. others i would say mismanaged in some points .. i know one track had issue with favortism and if you dont like it leave attitude or our way or the highway ..well the highway racers took .. .dirt at the time was cheaper then .not anymore that is heading the same direction up. just the price of a good factory stock is way more than should be spent .but if you want to compete you have to spend the big bucks ,, use to able to build two cars for the price of one now not that long ago either .. ..one reason my son has a car in my garrage not far from being ready but the cost has taken some pep away even if the car was ready .. .so save the moeny for something else .will his car make it out this year maybe . .so i hope and wish houston the best ...if they do set up a factory stock race we will be there a whole bunch will show up .. dirt racing is fun but i would rather be running that hot and hard on tires pavement .. that is still in my blood ..
  6. well the oldtimer part of me really realized it when i had old man nick helping me with his truck .. i was hoping nick being you know older much older would make me feel young .. but seeing nick was crawling around helping me with his truck alot better then i woke me up . . .. i dont fall for the you are as old as you feel .. because i havent felt what 66 years old feels like just yet... I will report back to you in a year .. . i think ill take up golfing i cant be any worst than nick ...... wife called up and got me set up for the virus shot friday .i need someone to make sure i dont faint ..THANKS GUYS
  7. Well when i get to your age i will be telling you 65 felt alot better .. thanks nick ..i went back and found i was born on a friday so i looked up what was going on that day .the first thing popped up was elvis .. huh why him i thought . he released lawdy miss clawdy that day .. texas independent day made me think my mother got her independents from carrying me ..it is her birthday as well .. she would have been 85 I WAS JUST LOOKING AT A PHOTO my sister sent today of my dad and mom at age 24 you remember those old black and whites right you invented the wheel , been a great day thanks again .. I WANT TO SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL WHO WERE BORN TODAY OR IN THIS MONTH .. and yes if you want oldtimer back on here go ahead ..as far as looks .. ill give that too you hands down .no arguement ..

  14. Trackside NSB

    yep he bounced off our trailor and i think the one next to us ... my boss and i pulled a joke on johnny white a couple of days earlier when he had ordered parts he had it shipped to our shop i think to keep his wife seeing what he was spending money on .. well we pulled his new cam out of the box and broke an olds cam in three places and put it in his cam box .. he at first didnt realize his cam wasnt suppose to be in three parts .and said dang this cam isnt suppoe to be that way is it . i said no and tim said well guess you wont be racing unless you pay out another hundred for this new one i have in my hand just happen to have a spare .. .. the look on his face looked like he was going to cry .. so we gave him his good cam .. i quess that was bad luck
  15. hello

    AND NICK IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE ..but nick some of the things you point out when woking with those darn racecar set ups or telling me i am wrong in what i am thinking ,,is priceless .. you have a great heart bud .sure glad you are one of a kind i dont think we need or could handle two of you .. funny how we can get on here and say things some may take differently than what is meant i have . nick an i have had that issue for along time . and i dont really remember just how we got together down here .but i found nick to be one heck of a person while working on his truck not this bad old moderator . and i think he found i am different in person when it comes to being serious ..i consider nick family just like i consider everyone here on speedzone or at a race track .that includes beach bum and toyota . BY THE WAY NICK I STILL HAVE KNEE ISSUES . but they are better .. you did have me crawling around that truck. and ill add i always told you and my other customers here is my price .what you pay over that is up to you and it it does not go unthankfull for the tip ...

  22. hello

    FOR once in your life you hit it on the nail maybe twice but who is counting .. this has been bad for many and many are the old folks i am just 65 . .seen too many ambulances at some of my nieghbors down the street knowing most of them can not survive with out power uppper 80s plus . i was worried about them and dont even know them .. ........

    SITTING here not in the same chair or watching the same tv .but the same spot as the day dale lost his life .. i am sure we all knew he didnt make it before they got him out of the car .. kenny reaction to the fire crew was all i needed .. .. anyway when it was made final he didnt make it i just finished cooking tacos .they never got eaten .. . tonight we are having tacos and that was not planned ..i didnt realize it was the 20th year till i turned the race on today in time to put my three fingers up just as i did at texas a few weeks later .. . i have to admit i was not a dale fan at all .. but darn near choked up some tears holding those three fingers up that day in respect for a man who meant so much to so many and nascar ....i realized afterwords he was nascar because it has not been the same an after the fact fan ...he isnt and will not be forgoten .RIP 3
