Sometimes its nice to reminece
MY last off-road race was the Norrca nationals at MnM in 1997, Now you can call it what you want but I think its sweet that I can come to this place and find people who used to race at So Cal GG,
Peopple who remember these races I used to attend like Gabe, I do not read into him saying how great he was, I think a lot of what your reading into was him answering my questions, and a lot of what we've been talking about in the last few posts, was in that era.
Man we used to have like 5 tracks with in 25 mins of eachother, now all there really is is so cal, Hot Rod , and Pegasus, as far as I know and those 3 tracks are a pretty damm good distance away from eachother.
Despite that So cal used to have 14 to 16 heats on any given race night, I dont see it being quite as full as it used to be.
I was down at So cal the other night and although it may of been the track set up, there seemed to be very few clean drivers out there, I just dont remember things being that way, But hopefully I can get myself out there and see how it really is.
I used to race a lot for fun myself, but with all the big races that were in the area during that era, It made it all the more fun.
So cal has supercross now which is cool I guess, but I havent heard of any big norrca or roar race there since they moved to HB.
I love what Jimmy Babcock is doing with his series, and I think it's a lot becasue thats the way things used to be in the mid 90's and all that just fadded away over the past few years.
I'm just saying I dont see Gabe braging here, but I garuntee if you give joel johnson or some old guy a car he will be right out there in the worlds A main soon enough.
Joel Johnson took somthing like 4 years off of off-raod racing, didnt touch a car, Losi sent him to the worlds and he TQ'd the damm race, personally I dont care when you were fast, if you were fast, you were fast, and other then old age, or major brain injury you can still be fast again.
