Standish happening again? That was my first race ive ever ran last year. Only ran that and marion. Building a mod polaris this year for the BEVRA series and hopefully hit marion again. That was a darn blast! Even though i only made laps stupid fuel gremlins.

As far as I know. I have been talking with James McKeon, who put it on last year,  and told me that he was doing it again this year but out on the bay.

Which Standish race, the first or the second? I raced the second one, Gladwin and Marion.

    Whatever one was at the short track that was dyed blue. We had the obnoxiously loud pos cat that wouldnt stay running. We threw the kitchen sink at it and replaced everything in it after marion and all seems well now.

    After stanish we put the stock pipe back on since there wasnt many classes for a mod sled. Nice and quiet now and will do 5 laps with no issues. And it prolly wont get ran much this year. THe polaris that Flannery is building is gonna take all the time

    Ya, OK. You parked a couple of trailers from us. I was the one that flipped in the '74 440 stock heat.

    Ya like i said your sled looks familiar with the bright green on it. Not sure how many fairgrounds races we'll be able to hit with running BEVRA. For sure marian that was a blast. Have to run the polaris in the misfit class.

    Its only a misfit for fairgrounds races. Fits the stock and superstock classes for bevra. Not sure why they call it stock class when u can run 121 skids and short skis with offset bars. But thats what the rules say. Flannery power FTW!!!
