I agree, chassis manufacturers, seat manufacturers, etc…  A lot of knowledge and the right people involved.

So are all the people in Ohio going to stop doping their tires for the weekly races?  You guys act like you have been with USAC for years.  Do you have any experience with USAC before this?

I guess time will tell.  However, for now many of us are looking forward to the up and coming races.  Will there be problems, probably so.  Doping of the cars has never been an issue in Ohio to my knowledge except for an indoor race and that individual was not from Ohio.

Is it not rather comical that individuals who are afraid of change then accuse others of being immature and needing to grow up?  Hummm seems to me that is the "pot calling the kettle black".
QMA is full of very good people unfortunately, the leadership leaves much to be desired.  All you have to do is work a grands to see that.

Now Quarter Midget Racing has an alternative rather than just outlaw.  Tampa then Columbus races should demonstrate just where it is going.  So again time will tell.

For all of you from that other organization,I went to USAC because of the way qma conducted all aspects of it's so called organization. USAC said you cheat the least you will get 1 yr suspension not a slap on the hand, i'm sold. Now look they are working on safety, the #1 thing with any sport. USAC is just getting started, by the end of the year you will see the clear differance between the two. Let's stay on subject of this post and keep the bashing for your forum, we would really appreciate that. Thanks ;D

Me grow up that is some funny stuff.What's wrong your track not going to be done in time for all 7 of you to race together? 2fast why do you think it's going to take a year? They are already ahead.Think of it this way there playing basketball(qma and usac)Usac is making all the shots and qma is so stupid there not smart enough to forfeit.tick tock.
p.s. qmamom it was a nice day today did you guys take your rakes and shovel out to break ground/work day on your track?race season coming soon.

i think all qma folks dont have anything to do so they are on the forum BASHING. heard the track up north is stalled out ole boy dont have as much money as everyone thinks. aint squat going on around columbus qma. LLR, how many of these fools do you think will show up to join usac with there heads hanging in shame for what they have done. unless of course they all have gone to mini cup.(boring). hell i guess i should have joined qma too, i think i could have squeezed in 3 more races.

Think they have to join to race.  I am sure anxious to see what the car count is in Tampa.  The more the merrier!  Like to see those big classes.  Kids have a ball and that is the MOST important thing.

Come on April and NO SNOW or RAIN!

We dont have any QMA options, Indy and Michigan are too far of a commute to run on a weekly basis, especially when there are 4 tracks within 2 hours of us to run USAC.

Can you believe it!  I bought 1/2 of the seat and still did not get to see her test drive!  Reserving which side I bought until I see her race!

No way to treat a Grandma!  Just get a phone call that she did it. 

Anybody talk to the bunch down south-how is it going there parking etc.

If you want to buy half of my car's seat I would not only invite you to watch the test sessions, I would let you drive the car as well...Interested?

If I could get in the seat then you would have to destroy the car to get me out!  LOL Thanks for the offer though!  Just had to rib my son for just giving us a phone call!  Dad will hear about it today as they are working big time trying to get a job done. ;D

Grandma13,  the car Scotty just got for the WF class this year is plenty large enough for us adults and we can get in and out without a crane, shoe horn or cutting the car.  I'm 5'9", 200lbs and fit in it fine with plenty of room to grow...  lol

So go ahead and submit your driver information and get your membership, we'll let you practice it in the Sr. Half class this year, Trish and I cannot wait to try it out...  ;-)

Thank God at 6'3", 220 I could never fit into my kid's quarter midgets.  That would have been ugly.

People have tried to get me into his thanks.

I pay for the stuff....that is my job.  :)

Unlike other sports my son has been involved with (football, basketball, golf, etc) I have tried to avoid telling him how to drive his race car.....I have no clue, and have never been behind the wheel of one of his cars.

I drove a kart once at an indoor public track.  I thought I was doing pretty well as I was 'white knuckling' my way around the track.  Then one time I looked up as he was passing me and waving at me as he went by.  That was all I needed to know.  I am not a race car driver, never will be.....but I admire anyone that can do it.

Nothing used to irritate me more then seeing a handler yell at a driver.....I wonder if they realize how hard it is to do what these kids do.
