Pretty cool. What type cars are you racing against? What track are you racing at (NASCAR sanctioned?)? Most of the tracks around here specifically outlaw rotaries.

Good job on the win. I grew up around circle tracks in MI (dad raced outlaw late model).

Same for the tracks around Ottawa. The team got to run the RX7 for only one season before it was banned. Throughout that season they kept restricting our exhaust further and further. Car owner/driver eventually built a 510 and then a 240sx. The RX7 continued on down at the local dirt track for a while, though.
