"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."

Daryn Pittman Charges to 11th Win of the Season at Fulton Speedway

Jessica Zemken scores best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish

FULTON, N.Y. - July 23, 2014 - Daryn Pittman charged to his 11th win of the season Wednesday night at Fulton Speedway, as Sprakers, N.Y.-native Jessica Zemken scored her best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish.

 

Pittman, who sits just 55 points out of the championship lead, said the win was the most uncomfortable he has had this season.

"I just knew we were going to get smoked," Pittman said in victory lane. "I honestly thought we were going to go from the lead to fourth or fifth in a lap. I just didn't know what to do. I was lost as a driver. The pace of the race just changed dramatically there."

 

"I was good on top in one and two and when I could run the top in one and two that really helped me hit the top in three and four."

Pittman said as he approached lapped traffic in his Great Clips #9, he noticed the cars were getting away from him.

 

"When I started running the bottom all the way around, I started making really bad laps in three and four on the bottom," he said. "I just kept waiting for somebody to show me their nose… It's an uncomfortable feeling as a driver when you're doing the wrong thing on the racetrack and you just don't know what to do. I was looking for the checkered about five laps before that and luckily it was just enough."

 

Pittman credited his crew chief Kale Kahne for making substantial changes after his dash win to give him the car he needed at the end of the feature.

Zemken said her Corr/Pak Merchandising team's third place finish means a lot - especially against the competition.

 

"It's like a win for us," she said. "To come here with the budget we have and the equipment that we have and be able to be here and be competitive with these guys - it's just awesome."

 

Zemken, who won her heat race earlier in the night and started the A main in sixth, said her experience at the track helped her understand how the surface would change throughout the night. She said she knew the bottom would be good later after the middle and top went away.

After losing her brakes with four to go, Zemken said she figured her night would be over.

 

"As soon as the brakes went to floor, I said this is what always happens," she said. "We have a good car, something bad's going to happen… They held up just enough to slow me down to be able to catch the bottom. And when I came up on Schatz I got underneath him a couple of times and I didn't even realize Saldana was a lapped car. I've got to say, that's the first time that I've been able to come around and lap Joey Saldana. I stuck behind him a little bit. I'll take third."

 

After winning the dash, Pittman started on the front row with David Gravel. As Pittman jumped out to an early lead, Gravel had his hands full with Cody Darrah. The two battled through the opening laps but Donny Schatz looked to take advantage in his STP/Armor All car. He got around Darrah by lap 10, as Gravel maintained the second position.

 

Farther back, Zemken was making her push forward, getting around Kraig Kinser in the fifth position and then taking the fourth spot from Darrah.

With less than 10 to go, Schatz got around Gravel for the second spot and set his sights on Pittman. As the A main entered its final laps and Pittman battled through lapped traffic, Schatz took one last look at Pittman.

 

Pittman took the checkered flag in first with Schatz second, Zemken in third, and after a drag race down the front stretch, Gravel in fourth and Darrah in fifth.

Schatz said he worked all night trying to find the right line on the track. He said he wished his team had been able to make a few more changes.

"I tried - that's all you can do," Schatz said. "The car was OK… We'll try harder next week."

 

The race for the championship remains tight between Pittman and Schatz. 55 points separate the two just past the halfway point of the season.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series crosses the border on Saturday for the start of a three race swing through Canada. Autodrome Drummond in Drummondville, Que., hosts the Outlaws on Saturday, July 26. The Outlaws then make stops at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont., on Sunday, July 27 and Ohswheken Speedway in Ohswheken, Ont., on Tuesday, July 29.

 

FULTON SPEEDWAY NOTES: Following his win, Daryn Pittman is 55 points out the championship lead… Donny Schatz, Jason Sides and Jessica Zemken all won their heat races at Fulton… David Gravel scored his sixth quick time of the season - the third most of any driver… Larry Wight was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing five positions to finish in ninth.

Evingham Site Excavation to Sponsor a Pack of Patriot Sprint Tour Four Laps of Fame Dashes

 

Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (July 22, 2014)- On the verge of the second half of the Patriot Sprint Tour season kicking off, a major area racing supporter has stepped up to bolster PST events down the stretch.

 

Evingham Site Excavation, of Bolivar, NY, has agreed with Patriot Sprint Tour management to sponsor the Four Laps of Fame Dashes at a host of tracks around their locations.  The first dash they will sponsor will be this Saturday at Woodhull Raceway.  They will also be sponsoring the three Labor Day Weekend events at Freedom Raceway, McKean County Raceway and Eriez Raceway, with additional sponsorship possible.  This is ESE’s first partnership with the Patriots, although their presence has been seen as a sponsor of Tyler Graves’ No. 25. 

 

Since 2008, Patriot Sprint Tour has been utilizing the dash portion of each race program not for cars in the front of pack but for those from ninth to 14th in passing points and has been met with great response.  Additionally, a season-long point fund has run in unison with Ohio’s Paige Polyak currently leading the standings over Brad Knab and Parker Evans.

MOTORAMA CUSTOM CAR & MOTORSPORTS EXPO

March 13, 14, 15, 2015 at Toronto’s International Centre

 

TORONTO, ON (CANADA) • Inside Track Communications – publishers of Inside Track Motorsport News, Inside Motorcycles, MX & Off-Road and the producer of the Canadian Motorsports Expo – is now the owner / promoter of the traditional hot rod / classic car / motorsports show held in mid-March at Toronto’s International Centre, adjacent to Toronto’s Pearson Airport.

 

Known over the years as Motion Custom Car Show, Performance World and most recently MegaSpeed, the new show will be called the MOTORAMA Custom Car & Motorsports Expo. According to International Centre officials, this ‘show weekend’ traditionally attracts tens of thousands of automotive enthusiasts each year.

 

The inaugural MOTORAMA show will take place March 13, 14 and 15, 2015. It will fill approximately 225,000 square feet of the newly configured Halls 1 and 2 (formerly Halls 1, 2 and 3) at the refurbished International Centre.

 

MOTORAMA will be a three-day celebration of automotive culture and motorsports, featuring high quality hot rods, custom cars, racing vehicles of all kinds, classics, exotics, trucks, tuners, rat rods and more.

 

The new show will retain the popular qualities that made the Canadian Motorsports Expo (CME) so successful, and will expand that model out to incorporate all of the other parts of the automotive spectrum that will make up MOTORAMA.

 

These include: celebrity appearances, interesting and informative seminars and forums, awards ceremonies, car clubs, racetracks and series, showcar prizes, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, collectibles vendors, demonstrations, industry announcements and press conferences, and more.

 

In addition to the team that produced the CME, MOTORAMA’s management group includes some of the most respected names in the Canadian hot rod and classic car community. As was the case with the CME, MOTORAMA will be promoted via aggressive public relations, advertising and social media campaigns – all starting almost immediately – to let Canadian car and motorsports fans know about the new show.

 

“We’re honoured that the International Centre has given us the opportunity to assume the reins of their mid-March hot rod and classic car show,” said ITC’s David Weber. “Our goal with MOTORAMA is to restore this show to its past glory, while making sure that Canadian racing has the same high profile that it had at the Canadian Motorsports Expo. For the racing community, the mid-March date is better for them because it’s closer to the start of their season. And we’re looking forward to working with the many individuals and companies that are passionate about hot rods, custom cars, classics, tuners, etc. to make this show the best it’s ever been.”

 

Stay tuned for more news about MOTORAMA in the coming weeks and months. For info on becoming a show sponsor or exhibitor, please contact us at (416) 962-7223 or email info@motoramashow.com. The show’s website is www.MotoramaShow.com.

 

ABOUT THE MOTORAMA CUSTOM CAR & MOTORSPORTS EXPO: The inaugural MOTORAMA Custom Car & Motorsports Expo takes place March 13, 14 & 15, 2015 at the International Centre, adjacent to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. With a footprint of almost a quarter-million square feet, the show will be Canada’s biggest late-winter celebration of automobiles and motorsports. For information about the show, including sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities, schedules and more, call (416) 962-7223, or email info@MotoramaShow.com.

MOTORSPORTS 2014 RACE CAR AND TRADE SHOW WILL BE THREE DAY PARTY WITH EXPANDED SPACE FOR 30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

 

OAKS, PA July 23, 2014 . . . The Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2015 fueled by Sunoco Race Fuels and Distributed by Insinger Performance Race Car and Trade Show will celebrate its 30th anniversary on Friday, January 23 thru Sunday, January, 25th.

 

“It seems just like yesterday when we kicked off this show,” said show producer Len Sammons who has confirmed the events traditional date once again at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

 

“The first Motorsports show took place just up the road in Valley Forge," Sammons recalled. "The 30 years went fast and wow has the show grown. We are planning a big three day celebration, a party for our 2015 event. We are very excited to have Pioneer, Sunoco, Insinger and Miller Beer all return to be part of what we feel will be one of the biggest show we have ever produced.”

 

All exhibitors from the 2014 edition of the show should have already received the new show brochure which reflects an exciting new floor plan that offers expanded space and a new design that will offer more room for interactive displays. The stage has been moved out of D-Hall into its own room. Other changes have been made to create a more consistent traffic flow throughout the main exhibit area.

 

The 2014 exhibitors have until July 31, 2014 to reserve the same display space or even increase their space for Motorsports 2015. Space reservations for past exhibitors must include a 25% deposit with the booth order. Past exhibitors that have had their past booth location impacted by the new floor layout or would like to change their display location should be in touch with Tim Hogue as soon as possible so that every effort can be made to accommodate that request.

 

After August 1st all space not reserved will be open to all.

 

“We are in the process of putting together some exciting plans for the 30th Anniversary,” said Sammons. “We will be making many announcements regarding plans for the show in the future.”

 

For those who have not been exhibitors or have missed a year or two the beautiful new show brochure is available along with a show floor plan by contacting Danny Sammons or Tim Hogue at 609.888.3618. They can also be reached at tim@aarn.com or danny@aarn.com.

 

The very classy Crowne Plaza Valley Forge will serve as the host hotel and will again offer a discounted rate of $89 per night (plus taxes). The hotel is located just 7.5 miles from the Expo Center and is within walking distance of the popular King of Prussia Mall, the nation’s second largest retail complex with over 350 stores and close to 100 restaurants.

 

Again, for the 30th Anniversary, the Saturday night post show will continue and will be held in one of the large ballrooms at the hotel with music by DJ Sound and Lighting and bar specials from show sponsor Miller Lite.

For information on the show check in at www.aarn.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

$2,500 Top Prize Up for Grabs in Patriot Sprint Tour Event Saturday at Woodhull

 

Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (July 21, 2014)- After a six week hiatus for many race teams, the second half of the Patriot Sprint Tour America Season is set to get underway.

 

The Patriot Sprint Tour returns to the highbanks of the Woodhull Raceway this Saturday for the ninth PST America event of 2014.  The season lidlifter was at the tight 1/3-mile oval back in May but this time around, $2,500 will go to the winner of the 25-lap event. This will be the only race of the weekend after the new management at Clinton County was forced to cancel the Friday Night stop. In addition, for the fourth year in a row, competitors with 305 engines will once again be racing for $1,000 in bonuses, including $300 for the highest finisher.

 

Back in May, Chuck Hebing put on a clinic, driving away from the field to score his sixth career win at Ted White’s facility.  “Cobra” will be back this Saturday to pull off the season sweep, which interestingly he has never done, despite all of his success at the track.

 

Current series point leader and defending champion Jared Zimbardi has been on a tear this year, but if there is one track that has always had his number, it is the Woodhull Raceway.  Zimbardi was able to scrap together a top 10 in May but it will be interesting how “The Juice” fairs this weekend.

 

This will be the first PST America event for local favorite Steve Collins since his win in weekly action at Ohsweken.  Collins won a dash in his first race at Woodhull back in 2011 and had a top five going earlier this year until a final lap crash relegated him back to eighth.  Fellow series regular Brad Knab was one of the drivers who benefited from the final lap incident and drove up to fifth and thus is looking forward to his first race in a month and a half.  Dave and Scott Just have also used the break to regroup and look forward to a return to action, particularly Scott, who was inside the top five in May until a late-race mechanical failure knocked him out.

 

Tour mainstays Tyler Graves, Clint Ide, Derek Jonathan, Dane Lorenc, Scott Kreutter, Parker Evans, Joe Trenca, Stephen Hutchinson Jr. and Paul Habeck are expected to compete, as are Jamie Bodo, Tracy Potter and George Suprick, who each ran finished up front in May.

 

With the top five finishing 305 sprints all taking a share of the bonuses offered, a number of teams are expected to mix things up.  Darryl and Alysha Ruggles, Steve and Will Glover, Jonathan and Chris Preston, Josh Azzi, Kelly Hebing and Dan Kuhn are just some of the names that could try their hand at the highbanks this Saturday.

 

Gates will swing open Saturday at 4:30 P.M., with racing getting under way at 6:30 P.M.  For more information, visit www.PatriotSprintTour.com

Many people have been confused by the recent announcement on Snell ratings for auto racing helmets.

 

Typically the SA rating is released every 5 years. SA2005 in the fall of 2005, SA2010 in the fall of 2010 but this year for whatever reason we were told that the SA2015 will not be released until the fall of 2016.....Driving Impressions <bob@teamdi.com>

Three Entering DIRTcar Modified HoF

by

 

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. – The DIRTcar Modified Hall of Fame and Classic Car Museum selection committee has announced their class of 2014.

This will be the 23rd year that the Hall of Fame has been in operation.

 

“Three modified drivers will be inducted this year,” stated selection chairman Gary Spaid. Included this year are Lloyd Hold, Charlie Rudolph and Mike Colsten.

 

Holt was among the many Canadian drivers to invade central and western New York. In the 1960’s Holt became a regular at the now defunct Waterloo Maple Grove Speedway. As the 60’s ended he added Rolling Wheels Raceway Park to his resume, where he was crowned the track champion in 1970, the first full season of weekly racing at the speedway.

 

Rudolph was also a track champion at Rolling Wheels, with his championship coming in 1986. In that same year he was crowned the overall Mr. DIRT Modified champion. Between 1980 and 1988 he accumulated a total of 49 feature wins on dirt and sits 31st on the all-time big-block feature winners list. Rudolph then ventured off to NASCAR, sponsored by Sunoco Race Fuels, running in the then Winston Cup division.

 

Colsten might best be remembers by Central New Yorkers as a late-model racer, running with Ford power. But in the Southern Tier, Colsten transferred his skills and talents to the modified division, winning the Five Mile Point track championship numerous times. He also became a regular modified competitor at Penn Can Speedway in Pennsylvania.

 

In addition to 2014 Hall of Fame class, Howie Commander will be honored with the Lenny H. Sammons Outstanding Service Award.

“We started the Lenny H. Sammons Outstanding Service Award back in 1993,” commented Spaid. “It was the first award we added to our inductions. Over the years we have been able to honor car owners, drivers, writers, webmasters, promoters and photographers with this award.”

Commander is best known for what he has accomplished at Lebanon Valley Speedway. He also has a hand in Albany-Saratoga and Orange County Fair speedways promotions. His resume includes drag racing promotions as well as being a major player in UMP racing. He is one of the most respected people in short track auto racing in general.

 

The Gene DeWitt Owner’s Award will go to Cliff Barcomb. Barcomb was one of the first to hire a Canadian driver, Davey Moore. This team came extremely close to winning the overall Mr. DIRT title in 1981. Cliff then teamed with C.D. Coville, winning some 30 races. He also had fielded a car for Sammy Swindell, who powered it to the pole during Super DIRT Week 1995.

 

The Mechanic Award goes to Bobby Hearn, who founded and created the TEO Chassis. Hearn, the brother of Brett Hearn, has been a dominate player in the modified chassis business for years.

 

This year there will be two Gater Racing Photo News Women in Racing Awards presented, with Robin Yasinsac Gillespie and Erica Bicknell-Jones taking the awards. Robin has been a media member covering Eastern New York racing, primarily at Lebanon Valley and Albany-Saratoga speedways. Bicknell-Jones is the general manager at the highly successful Merrittville Speedway.

 

This year’s induction ceremonies are scheduled to take place on Aug. 6, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are not needed for this event, although seating is very limited.

 

The following night, Aug. 7, will be the Hall of Fame night at the newly revamped Weedsport Speedway. Featured on the program will be the return of the Super DIRTcar Series big block division. This will be the first time since July 17, 2011 that big blocks will have been racing at Weedsport. The track was closed and remained silent except for small block races during Super DIRT Week. The speedway is currently under the rebuilding process, as all of the grandstands, judges tower and club house have been knocked down.

 

 

 

 

 

  

The Lucas Oil ESS Championship will now be decided on Saturday night, Sept. 27 at the Rolling Wheels Raceway.

 The event will be a special double header with the Go Nuclear Late Model Series. 

Big-Block Modifieds and Sprint Cars to Highlight Action in 2014at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park

     The Fast Track special events include World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars,
                   Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds and ESS Speedweek

 

ELBRIDGE, N.Y. - April 17, 2014 - Five nights featuring the world's top dirt track stars and the fastest dirt track race cars are on tap for 2014 at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park.

 

The 800-horsepower Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds, World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars, Empire Super Sprints and other DIRTcar stars attack "The Fast Track" in 2014, bringing fans one of the most exciting schedules in the history of the 5/8-mile clay oval.

 

"Rolling Wheels is one of the premier motorsports facilities in Central New York," said Rolling Wheels General Manager Jeff Hachmann. "It has built a tradition on running must-see events, and in 2014 we have put together five events that feature the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars, Super DIRTcar Series and two new mid-week specials showcasing all DIRTcar divisions. If that isn't enough, back after popular demand, everyone who buys a ticket in advance to the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car event in October will receive a FREE Fan Pit Pass at no additional charge. I can't think of a better way to get up close and personal with 'The King' Steve Kinser and create memories that last a lifetime."

 

Two special Thursday night events on June 26 and July 24 highlight DIRTcar Thursday Night Thunder. DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, Sportsman and Stock Cars will be on the card for Thursday, June 26, and DIRTcar Big-Block Modifieds, Racesaver 305 Sprint Cars and Stock Cars will be featured on Thursday, July 24.

 

On Thursday, July 3, the Super DIRTcar Series action heats up with the 'Stars & Stripes' Summer Super Show presented by Dig Safely 811 featuring the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds and Empire Super Sprints. This blockbuster event will feature eight-time and defending series champion Brett Hearn in his pursuit for a record-setting ninth title, three-time champ Matt Sheppard's quest to regain supremacy, and Round #2 of ESS Speedweek for the 360 Sprint Cars. To celebrate the nation's birthday, a huge fireworks display will light up the sky on this special midweek event.

 

Saturday, Sept. 28, will bring the ESS Championship and Go Nuclear Late Model Series to Elbridge. It will be the first time the Go Nuclear Series has tackled 'The Fast Track' and the first time any Late Model series has competed at Rolling Wheels since 2012. In addition to this first, the Empire Super Sprints will return to decide their champion in the ESS Championship.

 

The final event of the Rolling Wheels season on Saturday, Oct. 11, showcases the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars as part of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week in what has become a can't-miss event with championship implications every year. Making this year even more special, it will mark the final event at Rolling Wheels for 20-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car champion Steve Kinser on his "Salute to the King" tour. Plus, the annual DIRTcar Big-Block Modified "Win-and-You're-In" 25-lap feature that night will lock in the final competitor to the Syracuse 200 at the New York State Fairgrounds.

CASEY’S GENERAL STORES PLEDGES $25,000 TO NATIONAL SPRINT CAR MUSEUM’S “EXPAND THE DREAM” CAMPAIGN

 

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (February 28, 2014) -  Casey’s General Stores has renewed its commitment to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum by pledging $25,000 to the museum foundation’s “Expand the Dream” campaign.  The announcement was made this week by Casey’s General Stores president & CEO Robert J. Myers and museum executive director Bob Baker.  Said Bob Myers today, “Casey’s has been involved with the Museum since the very beginning and we are delighted to continue our involvement.”

 

According to Bob Baker, “The expression ‘since day one’ is sometimes over-used, but it definitely isn’t when referring to Casey’s commitment to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation.  They have literally been involved from the days of our non-profit incorporation and the creation of our founding board of directors back in the mid-Eighties.  Their involvement has not just been ‘support’ from the outside, but it has been ‘commitment’ from the inside.  And, for that fact, we are truly appreciative.”

 

For more information on the 501(c)(3) non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation and its “Expand the Dream” campaign to raise money for a brand-new storage and staging facility and for increasing its overall endowment fund, please contact executive director Bob Baker at 641-842-6176.

USAC Silver Crown Series Joins ‘Racing’s Biggest Party’ during NAPA Super DIRT Week in October 2014 at N.Y. State Fairgrounds

Open-wheel stars join stout field of Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds, DIRTcar 358-Modifieds, DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds and DIRTcar Pro Stocks at Syracuse

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Nov. 20, 2013 – Al Unser topped Mario Andretti and a field of open-wheel superstars the first time the USAC Silver Crown Series raced at the New York State Fairgrounds “Moody Mile” in 1974. Now, 40 years after that historic event, the USAC Silver Crown Series will return in October 2014 to Syracuse during the 43rd annual NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week.

 

The USAC Silver Crown Series will tackle the Mile on Saturday, Oct. 11, along with the showcase 150-mile event for the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series. The DIRTcar Sportsman Modified feature will shift to Sunday, Oct. 12, where it will join the DIRTcar Pro Stock event and the Super DIRTcar Series’ premier $50,000-to-win Syracuse 200.

 

“We’re excited to bring the Silver Crown Series back to Syracuse,” said USAC President Kevin Miller. “Super DIRT Week is such an historic event, and we are definitely looking forward to putting on a show for the passionate race fans that have been going there for more than 40 years.”

NAPA Super DIRT Week at the New York State Fairgrounds will kick off on Wednesday, Oct. 8, with a Big-Block Modified Happy Hour practice before Thursday’s qualifying runs for the Big-Blocks and 358-Modifieds. The USAC Silver Crown cars will hit the Mile on Friday afternoon for a practice session along with the Futures events, followed by “Friday Night Lights” featuring the Sportsman Modified Triple 10s, the 358-Modified Twin 20s and the Big-Block Modified Triple 20s.

 

All of that sets the stage for two huge days of racing Saturday and Sunday on the Mile.

“The USAC Silver Crown Series has a rich history at Syracuse, and we’re thrilled to welcome them back in 2014,” said World Racing Group CEO Brian Carter. “We’re always trying to enhance our events for our fans. We have incredible racing at Syracuse with the Big-Blocks, 358-Modifieds, Sportsman and Pro Stocks, now bringing the Silver Crown cars back to the Mile will make the week even bigger for everybody.”

The USAC Silver Crown Series last raced on the Syracuse Mile in 2003 during NAPA Super DIRT Week, with J.J. Yeley taking the checkered flag.

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.
