FACTORY 600 gaining steam

Stock class tech used to be serious business. In USSA in the late 80s and 90's, if you won or ran top 3 early in the season, you dragged your stuff in the shed and took it ALL the way apart. Jerry would tell you what he wanted to see, and you and ONE mechanic went to work. At the early season races,...

Pro Sprint 600

In the late 80s and early nineties we used to make really good money from the purses. They were 100 percent payback, and a loy fewer classes. No semi pro for example, you just stepped up and ran. I remember entry levels is the four stock classes being in the high 20s (each), pro sprint in the 30s, a...

That was 86 in ironwood when the 'zamboni' effect was tried. Seemed like the thing to do at the time..... Jacques counting down the straight is just what we did with 12 twins on the track. I used to look off to the side and know when to turn based on signage. Dave is right, you need banks and bright...

Outlaw 600 - Progress Thread - HRE

Hey Tony, if you have spent any time in Mexico or done any business there, you would know, they don't actually get left alone, it's all done on Kick backs, Health Board, Cops, politicians, etc. to look the other way. Just a way of life there. Not saying it's a bad thing just saying. Just got back in...

Outlaw 600 - Progress Thread - HRE

Anybody else notice that grass still grows on the S/F line at ER? or that we used to have a couple hundred sleds racing at Weyawega every other weekend for about 10 years straight and no one ever noticed a decline in fish count there? Has anyone ever thought about the term "parts per million"? I've ...

F-600

I certainly don't want to eliminate the little guy, my point is to make sure the events are credible enough to attract those who can afford it, once you do that the costs are spread out among more competitors, which reduces the cost for everyone. For example the Champ class will, if promoted ahead o...

Well I guess I would then say stabilize Pro Sprint rather than start another class. If that can't happen, phase it out. Otherwise the class count will keep rising.

F-600

OK Howard I re-read your posts and would like to offer that IMO, if semi Pro Champ is too tough for someone wanting to head in that direction, can they not run Pro Sprint (or its semi pro version)? Sure its expensive and you will have to switch engines for a move to Champ, but by its nature Champ to...

F-600

Not exactly sure what you mean by Champ being more competitive now, it certainly isn't near as deep as F1 was, they had to go to 18 sled finals in 93 (I think) because we were constantly sending so many sleds home from the Sport Series races. Add to that, and Jerry K can probably remember the year, ...
