The only real racing I do is in the sand at Silver Lake, but the "drag strip" has been so wet in the past two years that it is almost pointless. My quad is far from fast compared to a lot of them out there, but it will run with or beat almost any other quad with similar mods. I have been drooling over the jokers vault turbo kit which will put it close to 100rwhp, but it sure isn't cheap.

I've raced mra for a few years in both novice and pro quad. Raced tt down in ohio a couple times. Ran a couple races at a couple smaller tracks around the area. Raced indoor at motoplex in Indiana and ProSource in Tecumseh a few times. But i do love just riding in general.

I have and raced mi, in, il, oh ... 125cc shifter kart .... at one time Danica & Sam Hornish raced at the events also ... Missed Tony Stewart by a couple of years ... Have raced against Mark Dismore ... you may have seen him a few years ago eat the end of the pit wall comming of turn 4 at Indy in practice .. (He led Indy with about 10 to go one year). Several Indy active drivers make a late fall kart race near Indy at New Castle IN ... A 4 hour team driver race

I did a hardscramble at Battle Creek once. I took 2nd in my class - not bad for my first race. Haven't had time to do one since.



I'm more of a recreational rider than anything. I like trail riding and the dunes.
