    I was there when Gene Kinman lost his life In his model A. I have only been back to Edgewater a couple times since then. I only knew him for a short time, but thats all it took to call him a good friend. I was talking to him in the staging lanes right before his last run, and I remember someone asking him if it would go 100, and he said if it did that he didn't want to be the one driving it, It was a handfull at high speed. I am planning on going sunday and I'm sure that watching Gene make his last run will be on my mind all day! I really love drag racing and I think Gene's car was not set up for the strip. It was made to cruise the streets (always with open headers.) If you are racing this sunday, please be careful.
    The Kentucky Kruizers car club is having a memorial cruise-in for Gene on sat. Aug.16 in carrollton, Ky at Coopers restaraunt.6:00 pm
    I didn't mean to Bumb anyone out!

    This show is KILLER!!

    GO TO THIS SHOW. ENJOY THE PROGRAM. WATCH SOME GOOD RACING AND MAYBE FIND SOME GOOD OLD SPEED PARTS. THATS IT!

    While Sad and unfortunate, Gene Kidman knew what he was doing and risking, AS DOES ANYONE INVOLVED IN ANY KIND OF RACING. If they don't, they need to stay in the grandstands.

    I grew up around Open Wheel racing, I saw guys I knew well, get hurt bad and killed. The worst thing for the sport we as fans and racers can do is to keep Talking about it and bringing it up. THATS WHAT PEOPLE AGAINST AUTO RACING WANT.

    This might be a hard pill for some of you to swallow but its the way its ALWAYS been amongst RACERS and there Families.

    I'm sorry if I offended any of you, But this post is to PROMOTE this fine event. There was a reason the news people were not allowed in the track that day. So there would be NO STORY. It should be the same here.

    No story, no re-cap, no comparisons.

    Thanks You, and I hope to see all of you Sunday.

    I would tell everyone that the doughnut on the door came from the bankshot in turn 2. Only problem is you were at the strip and not the round track.:eek:

    There were also some killer bikes there Sunday.
     
  23. Hey Mike how about some pictures of the '34? Are you ready to sell that '32 now?
