I'm Kevin Goins from Maple Hill, NC, and I love to read your magazine. I saw the Pit Board Four Bangers comment. I have helped my good friend on his LLM for 2 years and finally could not take it any more so I got my first car, an '88 Toyota GTS four-cylinder that I race in the Pure Stock division at my local track, Coastal Plains Raceway Park in Jacksonville, NC, (pictured) but I also travel about 3 hours to two more tracks.
This is a very big class in NC and we have at least 20 to 25 cars in the field each week, most of them are six-cylinders. So, I am building a new car, a Ford Probe GT. Believe it or not I'm doing it under my carport at home since the shop at my friend's home is full of his LLM car. There is not much set up on these cars just some spring and camber changes, but we did find out that if you put it on a frame puller you can get some cross in it. Ten years ago I had cancer and now I am cancer-free, so I started racing and this is the best class for the money. The cars can be very safe if done right. I could go on a long time about this class of cars but I will let you go.
Not surprisingly we got an email box full of people calling for some more editorial on the four/six-cylinder divisions. So, be on the lookout-we'll do something special in the near future.
Luck, and Thanks
Wow! What do you know, a female racer ranked 10th in the nation in the UMP Dirtcar Limited Modified division! Congratulations to Shelli O'Bryan for a great accomplishment this season, and good luck next year
I am a current subscriber and have been around racing for a long time now. I would like to thank you for helping evolve the sport into what it is today.
It's our pleasure, we take our position in the industry very seriously and sincerely appreciate the recognition. Congrats to your friend Shelli as well!
I loved the story on the Outlaw Super Lates. I grew up watching my uncle, Doug Hanna, race them and always loved them. I remember watching thrilling races between him, Denny Nyari, and Larry Zent (to name a few) in the '80s and '90s. They were awesome and I think everyone should enjoy at least one Super Late show. I have some pictures of them that I would like to share so we can remember the history of them.
Send them on!
Hey Circle Track,
I think you should check your facts before you publish a story. The Outlaw Super Lates run weekly at many tracks, including New Paris, Plymouth, Kalamazoo, Berlin,
Angola, and M40.
While there are tracks still running Outlaw Super Lates on a routine basis, our writer who penned the story says that there were a lot more of them doing so in the '80s.
Dear Circle Track,
Thank you so much for the calculators you posted on www.circletrack.com. I have no idea what to do without Circle Track magazine. You guys help out the low-end racer so much every month! Each week, I look in the mailbox to see if the new mag is here yet to see what new things you guys have written.
Thank you so much again-especially Bob,
You're more than welcome. Helping racers like yourself is what we do and what we love to do!
