      Unfortunatly, no. Traveling is getting to me, and that race is kind of far for me. About 1100 miles each way.

          Nitro is banned?
          What would a /6 sound like with 6 zoomie pipes on nitro?

          I used to go to the U.S. Nationals every year in the early 70's.
          We used to cruise the local motels in the evenings after the track closed down at 6:00 and check out what was happening. One motel in particular had pit mini bike races in the parking lot every year and eventually had a Christmas tree. Some of the fuel guys ran nitro in their Briggs and Strattons.
          Ahh....the good old days of racing before it became an industry.

          We don't ban nitro. It is a situation with the track insurance. Most tracks need special insurance for the days they run nitro. If the track will allow it (in writing) it is OK to run.

            I wanted badly to make Clay City last year. I'll try again this year. Hopefully no rain this year.
