Circle Racing Stockton, Ca. post July 7th update

We attended the July 7th race with about 30 winged FI sprint cars and several other carburetor fed racers and late models all competing in front of a couple thousand spectators; thanks to Dani Noceti and staff for a great evening; many couples and families with children all enjoying the competition; very safe and clean […]

Sprint Car Racing Stockton 99, Ca. June 15-16

Dani Noceti & staff at Stockton 99 speedway did another great job organizing this event. All of these racecars on pavement are fast. The turn-around of the various classes was very quick. The racer participants kept their cars reliable with few show interruptions. I was impressed with all of the fuel injection cars storming out […]

The staff at the Kingdon event also supplied plenty of shaded seating covered by tents, all real […]

The Sacramento Team Boddie event that was organized by Jermaine, Kenya, and all the Boddie staff, Fri. & Sat. Aug. 25-26, was a hit. Probably well over 10,000 racers and spectators. Eighth mile hot rods were quick. A lot of competition between the mechanical injection, EFI, and carb NOS setups. All the folks were polite […]

Good-Guys Car Show West Coast

The Good-Guys Pleasanton Car show was a hit. The collections of custom hot rods was second to none. The creativity in custom paint, interiors, and engines is marvelous. The older hot rods brought back memories of our youth. A 65 Chevy that was on display brought back memories of my old hot rod of the […]
