When there are a couple of races, not too far apart, but a good distance from home, It might be an option to leave the race rig near the race track.
Last year, I had considered racing at Clay City, leaving the race rig, in Ky or Tn. Then driving home to Fl, and return, pick up the rig, and race at London, Ky.

Yes Definitely an Idea that I have considered as well.

If you guys remember, the only reason I was able to race Knoxville two years ago was because we had to take care of business for my wife’s dad in Cosby TN. It was a real mix of emotions for the whole family. It was probably rude of me to bring the car, but I did. Most of you probably didn’t meet my wife Valerie since she left ahead of me for the long drive home.

Steve Mayfield was a musician, mostly Irish and mountain music. Every year he would get a job in Gatlinburg as a street musician, walking around the town playing music in front of stores.

Valerie is not fond of the idea of going back with the race car with an extended trip into Gatlinburg and Cosby. But that doesn’t mean I won’t make the trip for racing purposes.

Besides, the Bruners are very nice people to hang out with. Meril will talk your ear off. But you might convince him to part with some parts.
