Dirt Track Auto Racing - The slow season
We haven't had much to say on the blog lately because the dirt track auto racing season is over for all of us on the East Coast. You can still find a few races if you want to travel to the warmer states in the US. For most of us though, it's time to get ready for the New Year and another racing season and that means time for rebuilding.
Jeremy Zufall, one of the local Latrobe Champions and his dad Jim, also a champion dirt track racer, are busy working on painting Jeremy's modified for next year. He's also working on rebuilding the motor and other key parts so he has a better year this year. His engine blew up last year and he was racing other people's cars which really isn't quite the same as building and tweaking your own so you know what you're getting into. He is a great driver and with the right car, he will continue to be a winner.
Jeremy is also busy building a new house which will be done in the next month or two. He's spending time primering and painting the walls right now. Wayne Homes is building most of it but he has to put the final touches on. Never hurts to save a few bucks so you can use if for your race car. . . He is also looking forward to having his own space to work on his stock cars. Not sure what the neighbors will think though when they hear the rumble and roar during his testing phases! Jeremy's dad, Jim and his mom Tammy just finished building their new house too. Of course they have always had the room they need to work on their cars and Jeremy's cars over many years and the neighbors don't mind because they doesn't have any! Wide open spaces. . . lots of room for test races!
Jeremy and Jim are both looking forward to the new season and it seems all too far away. Tammy also volunteers at the dirt track and she is a great help to all of the guys during the events.
