Mr. Baker: it would be good to see you back in competitive racing. I always felt you were the one American who could give the Asians and Europeans a real run for their money when it came to asphalt racing. good luck!

by the way, how do you find the tc5R? why the move to try an HB? somthing different?

YES HOT TRICK...Red Ozite...I lived so close that you could get there without getting on the freeway and I remember taking my parents van club racing while they were out of town...I think I was 12!

I also remember the battles on the Championship Sprint arcade game at Hot Trick...The only thing I could ever consistently beat Barry at...he used to get so mad...

The good ol days...

I graduated from Carlsbad in '93, so I was around the same age as you guys. I remember playing Super Sprint at Hot Trick, too... makes me wonder how many of us actually know each other from back then.

Mostly I raced at E&L on the dirt oval, and later on the paved oval. I'll never forget skinny little Eddie and Linda with the teased 80's hair. I would miss races to play Bad Dudes and that off-road game in the arcade there.

Speaking of E&L, you remember it was once the Del Mar Skate Ranch? Seems like that place had quite a following, I found a nice write-up about it.
