Just got back from the Davenport meet last night. Had a great time. Got caught up with some friends and met a few new ones. The 27 J engine is in the hands of Matt Olsen along with my freshly rebuilt Schebler carb. I spent a ton of money after paying for the carb and handing over a deposit for the engine rebuild and all I came home with was a t-shirt! It was hot as hell this year. Temps near 100 degrees. We decided to watch the races Friday night. Between the heat and the long mostly senseless pauses between events we left early. They really need a better announcer and to move things along at a faster pace. We were surprised to find that a go-kart race was being held in the streets of Rock Island Illinois. We stayed only a block from the course. Saturday morning we watched practice and then headed home.
