Jim is racing an older MBH racecar that his son Dylan use to race.

“This is a really god car, it seems to really work good here, we ran it at a few other places and we did ok, then after the practice they had here we changed one thing, on the car and it has been good ever since”, noted Jim.

“I have to thank S&R repairs, Fogelman trucking G&R excavating, Strouse electric, Miller racing engines, and my crew a wife, I could not do this without all the help”, Jim concluded.
