tekin/mamba/lrp---prolly like nothing faster than an 8.5 motor..but at bumps a 10.5 would be good enouph im sure.

As much as i'd like to wish for such a result. As big as Chris' dirt oval market is and compounded by the new track's decision to run offroad on saturday. i'm not speakin for him, but you have to believe the answer to this question is 100%

No.

His 10/11 schedules are already up. so i think that seals it.

Jac9, Is a 10.5 a common motor?

Stay with getting a buggy for bumps the class is bigger, They do run truck but mostly have only 6 to 8 if your lucky. If your buying a speedo and motor pick up a lrp speedo used for cheap, and get yourself a novak ballistic 10.5 and you will be set.

And yes the 10.5 is a common wind.

Cappy,

You should make the trip anyway. It's a 3 hour drive for me back down to Virginia on those Sunday nights but I couldn't imagine going anywhere else to race during the fall and winter.

Just to make sure Jeff didn't confuse anyone
the track is being changed to oval.
take a look at the calendar on the web site to be sure.
Thanks
