I've heard that same rumor...tell you what, you distract them and I'll go look then we'll switch! LOL YR4dude...I figured if you lived in So Cal and raced at the 'drome that you would have been by One Stop a time or two.
Was kind of THE oval to race at for a while.
And they didn't call it "One-Slam" for nothing...one slam into the wall usually resulted in needing replacement parts. That was my home track until they closed. Raced there in the dirt then on the asphult when they paved it. The oval was so bad because turns 1 and 2 were highly banked but 3 and 4 were "flatter" so people would go blistering through 1 and 2 easily but their car would be too loose or tight for 3 and 4 and...WHAMO...into the wall. Had to set up for 3 and 4.
Raced a ROAR series race back then once...six races...three oval, three road course. One-Stop, Bob and Jims in Riverside, Yorba Linda, Camirillo, Bakersfield on the big 1/4 scale oval, and one other road corse track that I can't remember. Finished second overall in Novice for that one. ROAR came in, tried to tie into One-Stop's lap counting system...and fried it. LOL Ahhh...memories.
And I ran ABC a couple of times. When I first heard of them I thought they were at One Stop's old location...
...we go from slipper clutches to torque steer to hyperdrive to the old So Cal On-road scene...hello tangent!
