POP will keep those in mind if I ever need to replace them,,,I bought it used many yrs ago from an AIR FORCE DINK,,IT has a 2in lift with a winch and top..it was taken care ofreally well,and OL pop has also taken care of it,,,,,the only thing I have a problem is keeping it bright shinny RED,,,it keeps on fadeing…...and the alumn whls won't stay pretty and bright.and that bothers me to no end,,,,it is a 450 carburated,,,starts and runs perfect,,,several guys at deer camp want it cause of the shape and how I treat it....thank you ,STACEY...……..pop

Congratulations to Dwayne and his crew chief! :D Sounds like the car was happy to get some love, too. Kinda like your dog when you come home from being gone off for a while. :lol:

Congrats to you guys!
Hey Pops, do you know if the track has an internet presence where we could see the track and type of cars that run there?

it's i30 speedway.com there has been races seen on ESPN and FOX seen from this track thru out the years,,late models and sprint both,it is a IMCA sanction track.....been around for many years,,,OL POP went out to it as a very young teenager !!a few yrs ago I was talking to the old man that now owns it,,his son and daughter now run it,,he's way up in age,,,but still drives the water truck sometimes,when he don't turn it over ,,,,I brought up stuff to him that happened back in the 60's and 70"s at the track he never knew about......they run a tight ship strickly business,,,,they make the rules and they are fare for all,,,,and if you don't like them...you can load your stuff and leave...they don't play,,,,it;s the best and most honest run track in the entire state plus the best pay-out.....pop

I think that is all that matters, winning is nice but having a good time speaks for itself.

See Ya,
