    Actually we took the Grandson out to Valley Speedway in Grain Valley last night. Had a great time and always brings back memories. Did some dirt trackin for about seven years myself. Some of the tracks I hit were, Warrensburg, Sedelia, Adrain, Savanna, California, Moberly, and Tri City Speedway in Granite City Ill. One weekend when I didn't run my own car I ran a guys Modified out at I-70.......oh I wish I had the money I spent back then. :eek:

    As my wife says, It was our days in the fast lane :hysterical: We got into it pretty heavy for a few years, running on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays when we could. After awhile it just went to Saturday nights and would only run more if it was a Special event. Alot of time envolved.

    Unfortunately I-70 is now closed, both the dirt track and the asphalt track. We've been racing at Bolivar Speedway located about 30 miles north of Springfield on Friday nights. Its back to asphalt and I'm helping the quys with a modified.
