drive slow, slower is faster, its easier to learn to drive slow then speed up than it is to learn to drive fast, you will NEVER want to slow down and you will be hacking everyone..........ask questions, dont be afraid to approach people and introduce yourself, always help others when YOU can and be courteous, find the tire that works and stick with it.........marshall your but off and offer to volunteer with track maintenance etc

That is Mike Gay and Dan Ross, two of the fastest drivers in the Northeast. They make it look easy, don't they? If you ever see me at the track I will give you a hand or help you with setup.

Yesterday I bought a new set of wheels. The front wheels came off easily but the back wheels are not it seems the bolt is broken or something. What should I do?

Do you think maybe the mounting hub is spinning inside the wheel? The nuts should come off no problem. Try sticking something in the axle to stop it from turning while you loosen the wheel nut.

It has to be one of three things wrong:

Hub is spinning in the wheel
Axle pin is broken
Axle is spinning inside the yoke
