Nellie, Bezzer and Sylvia wait at the USAC traielr for inquisitive minds.

If this is one of promoter Chris Kearns toys, someone should tell him it needs a motor before he can go play.

Now here's a toy Chris can get his hands on and have some fun.

Paul is explaining to the Kittle Krew about things with Randy gone to Boston for some baked beans, or was it to have a tea party?

Damn, the little blue bugger looks fast just setting there!

My granddaughter Zoie spots it and heads right over.

She wanted in the cockpit, but couldn't find the key. She has her learner's permit!

Still not ready to get out, must be the "show me" Missouri way.

It is Mrs Wags first race this year and she took Zoie up to get a seat for later.

Red, blue, green and black and white is just a taste of the speed and beauty sprint car racing provides.

The Ripper's car had him in between his sons in the main as he finished 8th.

From here it kinda looks like a sprint car junkyard, NOT!, just alot of machinery!
