A special thanks to my wife who supports our racing in a big way. from pushing the car in long staging lines so it will not heat up, to setting valves between races, to fueling and cleaning the car, I could not and would not race without her. This has been a learning experience for my wife and grandson, and a re-learning experience for me as I have just returned to racing after a 30 year absence. Pics on top are us racing inSwift Current Saskatchewan ,Calgary Alberta and Medicine Hat Alberta . All in all the only regret I have is missing 30 years of fun. Things have changed as to power in these cars and I am amazed at the hp and torque this little 318 R3 will put out.
