99% of the time I am the oldest racer at the track and most times get beat by 10 to 20 year old racers. My eyes are my biggest problem but I have fun and that is why I race to have fun. I normally place in the top 10 even at big races.

now that you mention it i have noticed that my depth perception is not as good as it used to be. makes narrow back straights seem 2 feet wide.

My eyes have never been good and the older I get the worse they get. But I will not stop racing till I am blind.

I'll be 43 in March. Started when I was 13 stopped in my 20's and started back again 2 years ago. My son will be 4 in April and I've already got him driving pretty good. Just like 46u I won't stop until I go blind.

im 14 and will be 15 in march, and have been driving the crappy electric radio shack cars for like probly 5 years. but then i got a pretty fast one (at least i thought) for christmas a while ago (the radio shack Lightning, if anyone emember that) and i had been wantingnsomething faster ever since i first jumped it. so now i have a GT2 that i havent driven much becuase of the probly 2 feet of snow we have here in muchigan. after my birthday, im gunna try to get the Associated MGT for a change of pace. but i still have to get a real car. haha
i hate not having much money. (all i have is a paper route)

lucky, right now it is about 17 and we are under a winter storm warning!!!!!
wich probly means no school tomorow!!!!
the only cool thing about the snow it when you live next to a parking lot and half of the snow melts. so it leaves the the parking lot cement, but still has the snow banks. can anyone say HUGE jumps.

Basher Jordan,
you are so lucky. We NEVER have snow days no matter how much it snows over night. One time it was -30 and we STILL had to go to school. But when it snows that much we sometimes skip school and go skiing and snowboarding and make up the work later because it is worth it big time.
