    I finished 3rd in the points at one track, and second in the points at another track my first year. This was racing against grown men because they didn’t have any kids racing classes in the old days.

    Nice mid 80's Ralt RT-4! Got to drive one once at Road America. Loved FA. I drove in Formula Ford in the late 80's, and did a season in F2000 (FC). I had an old Crossle to start, then went to Reynard. I would love to get back in, driving the, now P1/P2 class, former C and D Sports. The D sports class is turning lap times now that the old Camel IMSA GT cars turned.

    In my mind, I'm racing everyone on the highway. Does that count?

    Only if you use the race line on highway ramps.

    I did some karting years ago. 100cc piston port, 85cc and 125cc shifter. Sorry, no electric karts. Tried cars but it was a money suck.

    Wish I had tried dirt cars.

    Hell I even give people lines on ramps.
    I told a coworker on the way to lunch he should double apex this on ramp, its faster. He looked at me like I was talking Greek. So I showed him a few days later when I drove.
