Quando Omni Flunkus Moritati
No kidding. The USAC sprinters would put on a great show there.
...'Thank you, carl s, for the reminder. Maybe this year you and macmiller can get the Boyle Valve Special on that great horse track?
I doubt another racecar will ever turn a lap at Churchill.
Hadn't been one on track since 1912 I'm told.
Bill Akin and his roadster and Joe Freeman and his Duesy were participating in the Louisville Concourse d'Elegance which was celebrating the Indy 500 Centennial and Bill was able to get triple double dispensation from a variety of Churchill Boards to take a few laps and Joe Freeman snuck in the back door LOL.
I've communicated with The Board about any future such events and the Boyle Valve Spl and the future for such looks bleak. If it changes I'm first in line.
(Ironically-not being aware of any of this last year- I was towing the car home from The Speedway and took a first time route through Louisville and drove right past Churchill when all of this was going on- I remember toying with the thought of pulling over and getting a photo of the car by the track then decided to get through town instead.

I have always wondered why moe horse tracks don't team up with USAC or WoO to do races. Seems like the mo use they get the more profit they get... Unless insurance cost would be too high
Congratulations to RHR, & all the winning drivers & teams in the fantastic 2012 season. Looking forward to 2013!
We are all together now. Goal 22-24 races per year split 50:50 oval:RC/SC
EDIT....and as I understand more tracks are moving to a certain compound which seems to have reduced broken legs on the nags by quite a bit. Dunno if that type material is a plus or minus for auto racing.
