Jr had an invite to drive our friends mini sprint at a Bear Ridge race last weekend, of course he couldn’t pass it up! So the boys busted butt and set the car up for the weight difference and driving style. Off we went to Bear Ridge hoping to place the 44 car of Vickery Racing in the winners circle. Jr is a driver and can adapt to almost anything he is put in or on, but not thus time. He gave me flash backs to his very first ATV race at the age of 4/5 and ran out back … Continue reading Back in the drivers seat!

Over the winter we picked up an enclosed trailer from a fellow racer. Included was a left side car. The boys decided that the proven antique right side car was in need of some rest and relaxation, so they went to work on the left side car. Jr busted butt to get the motor together, broken in and ready to race. The left side 01 car made its first visit to Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford VT .It was a bad trip. Right down to tow vehicle problems. Practice laps gave Jr some input on changing the cars set up. … Continue reading Right side racing gone wrong….
