This threead post is good.. I have been out of the racing for 2 years now and last Friday was my first outing. I race the red and white 88 street stock. Yes purposly started in the back not wanting to cause any wrecks because i am rusty. I personally enjoyed the track i found even though i did not set the track on fire that the traction at the top of the track was reaasonable.. I have not heard the name Charles Kettle mentioned in a very long time. He could make a car hook up under any condition. I think the upgrade at the track are very good the pits,grandstands and the racing surface. Dry i agree that it is just due to the very hot conditions now. The air pressures and tubes mentioned... personal experiance is that if you run tubes use lots of baby powder that will keep them from melting to the tire itself. air pressure on last Fridays condition would have been to increase it not let it down... Just my personal experiance and thoughts.

Good Luck this Friday Cool

i would bet theres not 4 people in each class that run the same air pressure. everyone has their own theory.

I AGREE WITH YOU RACER88.. I SAW QUITE A FEW GUYS TIRES ROLLING OVER SO MUCH THEY WERE ON THE SIDEWALLS... I ALWAYS ADDED ALITTLE ON DRY CONDITIONS TO KEEP THE FULL CONTACT PATCH ON THE RACING SURFACE.. SO FAR IT HAS WORKED FOR ME.
AS FOR THE TUBES.................... I PURCHASED AN I STOCK LAST YEAR AND EVERY TIRE HAD A TUBE IN THEM.. THEY WERE THE BUTYL RUBBER TUBES.. THEY ARE VERY TOUGH AND PRICEY I MIGHT ADD... I USED TO RUN TUBES WAY BACK WHEN B/C IF WE WOULD BANG TIRES AND A BEAD WOULD BEND I WOULD NEVER LOOSE TIRE PRESSURE.. I HOPE WE ARE PAST THAT NOW.. LOL..

I've done all the above as far as buying good tires, good tubes and the baby powder. Lowered the pressure and tried to explain to the boy how to feather. D Seals also gave him some pointers that helped for awhile. He just got so anxious last week and was thinking with the foot rather than the brain.  He likes the hi-side but starting in 3rd position it isn't easy to make your way to the outside.
I also agree that Charles could hook you up. I have been coming to this track since I started coming with Charles when I was 9 yrs old. I am looking foward to the "Kettl Memorial", I split an order of 200 checkered flags to give out to the kids that weekend, with the Kettl family.
Unfortunately, our car won't be there to run tonight. Last week it took some damage to the front-end and business has been swanped this week and didn't have time to get her fixed. But, we'll be back next weekend.
Thanks Chuck.

Looks like everyone got their dry track wish. It is intermission and no sign of dust.the only airborne dust comes in one inch chunks!
