Fiqure 8\'s

Has any one ever seen one of those fiqure 8 races? I would rather try and cross the 91 fwy than drive one of those things. That is by far the most redneck thing I have seen.

Re: Fiqure 8\'s

redneck racing is awsome i like the races where they are towing the trailers. whom evers trailer looks the best after the race is the winner i think. they do that type of racing usually at all the small tracks. cajon, irwindale and ibelive also the orange show does it.

Re: Fiqure 8\'s

The Orange Show Speedway ( in San Bernardino, not Costa Mesa!) used to run the figure 8 trains and trailer racing at least twice a year. I go to at least 2 or 3 races at the Speedway every year and was surprised when I found out some of the other RDC crew attended these events too. I was bummed this year when I viewed the schedule and saw nothing but "serious" racing. No demo derby, no figure 8's, no trains, and no trailer racing. If anyone knows of some good ol' fashioned rednecka racing that is happening this summer be sure to post it!
