No, health and money. I won't be going back. Rob and Bob put on a great casual event. It's a lot of fun. TJ

Is there a special class for Clinton Panther karts? I'm still in the process of putting one together. But I also have a West Bend 580.......

Tim,

If you bring a Clinton or WB 580 kart you will be in good company. Bring what you got.

Tim,

Clintons are usually well represented.
There are no 'classes', we just try to get out there at the same time and scoot around.
Yell if you need parts.

I’m really glad to hear there is going to be another Big One in 2019. Last year I fully intended to attend but last minute events stopped me. I’m going to try again this year. I have a 66 Rupp Chaparral with an alcohol dual carb Mc75 from Paul Booth I’m dying to try. I only went once but Bob and Rob put on the absolute best event I’ve ever been to. Everybody was great, the parts for sale were amazing and the Racing was great. These guys really know how to treat people. I don’t know how they provide so much for so little but they do. So thanks guys and I hope to see you all this year!! Frank Payne

Frank,

Thanks so much for the props.

Its great to hear that your going to return and were looking forward to seeing your kart which will most likely be another of your show stoppers.

Our deal has remained steadfast with the 'run em like they ran em' format so rest assured your machine will fit right in and as you know you'll be able to witness what old go karts actually ran and looked like.

You might want to throw a little Bender or Clinton powered rig in your trailer. Theres a lot of rumors floating around about these things.....just sayin. :P
