Shaving Cream Cleaner
I use Barbasol shaving cream in the can; that is how to clean Lexan windows and windshields, because it won't harm the coating on the Lexan. Just put it on and rub it with a soft cotton towel to loosen the oil and grime. Then remove the residue with a microfiber towel for a unbelievable clean. It works great on oil on windshield in the pits too. Rub on. Rub off.

Boy did we goof. In the Dec. '09 issue of Circle Track's Reader's Tech Tips, we featured a tip entitled "Inexpensive Evac Tank." We inadvertently left the racer's name off the tip. Well, we sincerely apologize for the omission to our buddy and loyal subscriber Mike Pinchuk.
Mike currently lives in New Mexico but calls Islip Speedway on Long Island, NY his home track. In fact, Mike is the 1972 Figure 8 World Champion. He retired after 14 years and now is a spectator at the closest track to his current home, Southern NM Speedway in Las Cruces, NM. Sorry we left your name off, Mike, and thanks again for the tip!
