Saturday night www.gulfcoastspeedway.com practice starts at 6pm

I have 2-3 people running Mad Dawg class (xr 100) that will show up but it's always more fun the more folks that show up.

I'm running the same setup we won F7E Katy Endurance with. I'll post a pic when I get a minute to upload image shack with one.

Mods are welcome - IIRC flat track Mad Dawg rulebook is something like this:

must start out with 150cc air cooled 2 valve motor.

That is it. So I guess mods are pretty open.

My xr is a 110 but I'll give it anyway.

Corky and I discussing the game plan.

17" wheels with Michelin Gazelle's - I don't have the wide 17's because they weigh so freakin' much. It's super hard pack so any street tire works pretty good.

Oh, and I have put the stock gas tank back on.

Hey 10mm,
where did you get a 110 kit for your XR100?
Every bore kit I've found has been 115-120.
Thanks,
Tom

Oh well, if nothing else maybe it will make for some really tight racing.

Good luck with your races this weekend, err practice!

Powroll has been around since '64 I believe, they make a great product and are very helpful - can't go wrong in my opinion.

I always advocate that it is better to ask forgiveness than permission, but if you don't live close to the track you might want to get in touch with someone at the track.

I can't imagine they would turn you away at a practice

Ben, one of our techs and John Girl (John Branch) was supposed to make it but John Girl got sick, pulled a no show and 20 mins into Bens first session he took a soil sample and gave himself a light concussion. I put in close to 3 hours. Wasn't worth poo on Monday.
