"Internet message boards are the worst thing to happen to racing since rain-outs.

 For every insightful, worthwhile comment, there are about 10 “eye-rollers”, and 10 or 20 mean spirited comments that do nothing to build our sport and only frustrate and annoy the sponsors, promoters and participants."

Dirt Track Girl is Goin' Racing!

We are loading up our trailer and coming to a track near you!..... CRSA Sprint Cars

Ok tough girl, let's go shopping. You need to look hot in the pits or in the stands.

 Always show your style, even at work and school. Dirt Track Girl is the best in women's clothing with a dirt track theme. You can be bold and shout how much you like to get dirty, or you can discretely wear your passion in a way that only you and your racer know what it's all about.

Remember: Tough and Sexy Always!

A-Verdi Storage Containers Presents Four Race 360 Sprint Series at Fulton, Brewerton Speedways

BALDWINSVILLE, NY – Long-time Fulton and Brewerton Speedway sponsor, A-Verdi Storage Containers, has signed on to sponsor the four-race series of 360 sprint car races at the Fulton and Brewerton speedways in 2015.

Dubbed the A-Verdi Fulton and Brewerton 360 Sprint Car Series, each track will play host to a pair of winged 360 Sprint Car events this year.

A $1,000 bonus will be awarded should a driver win all four feature events. If a driver wins three of the four, he/she will earn $500 extra courtesy of A-Verdi.

Fulton Speedway will host the first of the four race series, when the Patriot Sprint Tour makes its annual stop at the high banks on June 6. Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds will join the patriots on the card that night along with the SUNY Canton Sportsman and NAPA Late Models.

Brewerton Speedway hosts round two of the A-Verdi Series when it presents opening night of the Lucas Oil ESS Sprint Speed Week on July 1. Last year, more than thirty 360 Sprinters were pit side before rains washed the program out. The winged warriors will be joined by Sportsman that evening, as they compete in an Industrial Tire of CNY Sportsman Shootout Qualifier.

Celebrate America’s Birthday in a big way on July 4 at Fulton Speedway. The third A-Verdi Sprint car Series event is the fourth night of Lucas Oil ESS Speed Week. The Mighty Modifieds will again join the high flying Sprinters, SUNY Canton Sportsman, NAPA Late Models and the traditional Independence Day Fireworks display in a show that surely won’t disappoint.

Schneider Packaging Night has become a late summer tradition at Brewerton Speedway and will be fourth and final A-Verdi 360 Sprint Series event of 2015. The August 14 program will see both the ESS Sprints and Tracey Road Equipment Big Blocks in action along with Sportsman and Mod Lites, on what promises to be one of the biggest nights on the 2015 schedule.

If it’s Commercial, Industrial, Construction, Retail, Government, Education or special events, A-Verdi can satisfy your container needs. Whether you’re renovating, waiting to build, suffering seasonal inventory overload or just need extra space for furnishings, fixtures, equipment, packaging, supplies, files or office containers, A-Verdi Storage Containers offers commercial strength solutions to your storage problems.

RACER vidio: Robin Miller's Toughest Drivers Series - Jim Hurtubise from Buffalo NY
Racer
In the early 1960s, Jim Hurtubise and Parnelli Jones were best buddies while they drove to the front of American open wheel racing in sprint cars and at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Hurtubise nearly broke the 150mph barrier as a rookie at Indianapolis in 1960 before returning in the Novi where he qualified on the front row and dueled with Jones for the early lead in 1963.

His hard-driving style (Parnelli claimed Jim was the bravest he ever saw) won him several races and thousands of fans but it was his amazing comeback in 1964 that cemented his popularity. Terribly burned at Milwaukee in June of 1964, Herk (short for Hercules) spent nine months recovering but was back in an Indy car in March of 1965 with his charred hands permanently shaped into claws so he could hold a steering wheel. He qualified the last roadster in 1968 and remained a crowd favorite until he retired in 1978.

RACER's Robin Miller followed Hurtubise all over the sprint car circuit as a teenager and was lucky enough to stooge for Herk at Indy in '68 and he looks back at one of the toughest racers ever.

5 Alcohol-Burning Engine Maintenance Tips

With all the talk about ethanol and E85 lately, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit five important tips if you're considering making the switch away from gas

 

From the December, 2010 issue of Circle Track

By Rob Fisher

 

With all the talk about ethanol, methanol, and E85 in the pages of Circle Track recently, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit five important maintenance-oriented tips where these fuels are concerned.

 

 

1. Buy Weekly
Alcohol fuels are hygroscopic, which means over time they will start to absorb water, and this is never a good thing. Old methanol, for example, that has been sitting around the shop almost certainly will eventually experience this problem. While good storage practices go a long way in preserving any fuel, the easiest way to avoid a problem is to purchase only the amount you will use to go racing on a particular evening the day before the race. Granted you will be buying fuel every week, but at least you know it will always be fresh.

 

 

Drain the remaining alcohol, fill the fuel cell with gasoline, and run the engine. Once it starts to sputter and eventually dies you will know that the system has been flushed. Any traces of methanol can corrode the entire fuel system, which leads us to our next point.

 

 

 

Note-be extremely careful when handling methanol. It's easily absorbed through the skin, and prolonged exposure can lead to health issues. In the event that methanol does come in contact with your skin, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water.

 

 

 

5. Always Inspect the Bypass Valve
Sprint Car guys should all know this, but you should check the high-speed bypass valve on a regular basis. Most teams will work with this bypass valve to ensure that the engine is getting as much fuel as possible. They often change the "pill" and bypass valve to send more or less fuel to the engine.
