For anyone who does not know, Brian helps run a team of girls in their go carts. They have been on a terror as of late winning many races.

Way to go Brian with all you do for those girls. They have been awesome as of late.

Thanks Tom. Krissy is really dominationg her class as of late. Even the tech inspector was laughing at me, next week we tear down everything on your kart. By the way, Burger won the mod feature last night in Redwood Falls. Joe was 4th in the Stock car class. His 421 cubed small block is for sale, it doesn't work in the Stock car, but I know of a modified that it will work just fine in wink

Brian, I think you told me the answer to this but I forgot. Do you run Arlington or Redwood? Or maybe both?

Just Arlington for now. It's a limited schedule there and later this summer we will go to other tracks like Toner's Lake and Blue Earth

Joe is scheduled for surgery this Thursday morning , besides the colon cancer, he also has a stomach hernia to get fixed. Preliminary findings state that the cancer is just in his colon. I'll give you a shout in the evening.

For those of you following this, he is the father of the twins in my avatar, I'm their Godfather. Joe and I have been friends since our high school days( along with Sifty)and I have been his crew chief in all of the Voss Racing endeavers for the past 22 years at Arlington Raceway.

Thanks Tom. I'm waiting to get ahold of the video from this past weekend and get that uploaded as well. Crazy decision before the feature, I changed out Megan's carb with the spare and it came to life. And that spare carb wouldn't work worth a darn on Sarah's last year.

Some Briggs restricted carbs on jr motors will not work to well on a adult motor. Depends on what the builder does to the carb for whatever class.

All 3 run adult carbs, as Krissy and Megan run a .575" restricter so there's not much of a differance. In fact the spare that is now on Megan's is the "biggest" of them all, .0005" from being illegal. The rest are at .0015" from max. The only small carb I have is on Pat's cart as that is a .425 restricter.

Yes, Clint is there almost every week. If we wanted to all throw in a few dollars, we could rent the deck in the infield for the night.

I could check into what it would cost.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
    • Rock or fish? Look at this one real hard.
