Ha I'm with Keith on that, years ago we were running the Canada 200 late model race over here at Western Speedway. With about 10 laps to go (Leading the race) the rear end cooked itself, I have never ever smelled anything that foul before or since. We let it sit there in the pits smoking away after ...
Pretty cool Norm, we started out with the old pogo stick and bubble weight checker. Then bathroom scales on levers, then grain scales.
