    Tony "the tiger" Simon and Glenn Necessary talking prior to Tony going out in the Cowelco # 124, Tony was last in this car 31 years ago at Ascot. The #124 car was built by Steve Davis and Lil John Buttera, now restored and owned by Glenn Necessary

    It was such a thrill to finally run at the Burg as we have a lot of family history there. Great to see all of you again and meet some new faces.

    Big thanks to Indyrjc for helping my dad and I get the midget running for the night.

    I had a blast as it was my first time really running on the dirt. I have some roll bar cam vids I will download later in the week, although they are not as exciting as Racer5c's! He was really rolling. Can't wait to do it again!

    screens are under the stacks, I should cut the mounts off but don't want to mess up the paint in such a visible spot

    Help, what were the wheelbase specs for the usac dirt champ cars in the 80's? Also interested in track front and rear numbers. Thanks for all the knowledge out there!

    :eek:

    Now that would be akin to stepping on your own foot.

    btw: Ray Alcaraz called me this morning and told me he saw a video on facebook with you lapping my car 13 times.

    I told him you had probably stolen the car.
    :cool:

    And when I met you and your family in July at the Burg it was like meeting A.J.Foyt himself. You guys are a blast. Keep it up.

    Can't believe I have not ever been able to attend Stan's party. Always falls on the same weekend I have to be at the Fabtech Trade show. I hope I can make it this year if my Invite is still open! Missing 3 years straight should get me banned for life.. :rolleyes:

    See some of you at HERSHEY this week.

    Here is an old picture of my Grandfather, (Dave Bixler) in his race car. I am unsure of the year of the picture, but thought you fellas may enjoy just another vintage picture.

  29. Those of you that are interested in the Novi Specials, and are in the Los Angeles area, might consider going out to Fontana to the AAA Speedway (formerly the California Speedway) on October 18th and 19th. The Indy Racing League will be running the MAVTV 500. On display and on the track (perhaps) will be the original Novi (a Winfield V8), the Bowes Seal Fast Special which was the 4th place finisher in the 1941 Indy 500. Apparently, the speedway and Victory Lane magazine are offering a ticket special. The discount is for Saturday admission of $35, with a grandstand and paddock pass. I believe to get the special, you call Pam Shatraw (at Victory Lane) 650-321-1411 or visit www.autoclubspeedway.com

    On Friday, when the IRL and Indy Lights are running and practicing, the vintage racers will be on the track shortly afternoon, and about 4:30 pm.

    The vintage race cars will be on display in the paddock area both Friday and Saturday.
