Open House At Carriage House Customs w/ NASA Midwest

ICE Racing: Madison Lake, MN

So I took my road racing Neon out onto the lake in the Rubber-2-Ice is what I learned...power is silly....don't need are better off darn near stopping the car before some turns instead of going way wide and just spinning tires....Winterforce snow tires, are awesome for snow and rally-x but suck on fozen lake.

I convinced a couple of friends to come out and "work" the event w/ me...see his post & photos here

IIRA ICE Racing: Lindstrom 1/30-31/2010

Round three....
Thanks to Dave Kapon (Old Volks Home) for letting me race is Dodge Omni Turbo
-8 laps in practice, 3 lap qualifier, 10 lap sprint race (gridded 6th, finished 3rd).
Dave's Omni is the very last car in this picture.  Unfortunatly the car didn't finsh it's 3rd sprint race due to a clutch failure.

Car in the turtle position...not good!  Driver went WAAAY too fast into turn one.  Fortunatly no one was hurt.
