Nice story and history Walt but most at the track today already know it the same as you.
I still think it's about time for open type FWD's.
The ONLY reason for the story you told Wald is that's what people drove back then. Today people drive FWD's, ain't no reason they can't be made to keep up with a winged sprint. Get FWD's steppin out in the fast category and today's 'people' will pay their nickle to come through the front gate to watch. FWD's are no step child, there about today and should be made into something special on a dirt oval the same as there made for the public/people something special driftin and other forms of motoring.
Weather you accept it or not Walt, everywhere else but where already mentioned emods are in fact modified's because that's what people choose to call them..
edit: Ain't no reason instead of "the" big 3 it can't be "the" big 4. Sprints, Late's, big blocks and FWD's. Tube frame, engine up front with FWD, maybe make them look like a small SUV or something else to get some aero into them and let the mechanic/racers have at it. Then when they get too fast reel them in a little with some stupid rules the same as was done to sprints. Till then they should be no minimum weight and open max 6 cylinder engines so long as there FWD. Why shouldn't there be open fuel, turbo and nitrous stuff on dirt ovals? Keep livin in the past and dirt oval race tracks will be a thing of the past. Wouldn't it be cool sittin in the stands at Lernerville when a FWD hit the nos bottle down the front stretch?
