    It’s a good strong, well attended class through out many of the events in the Midwest, with some very skilled drivers.

    I have Mike Birdsell building me a 1982 Margay Xpert II right now, and we’re going to put a Yamaha on it.  I hope to get it out to a couple events in 2016.

    Excellent Rob.  Good to see, I think you will have some good fun in that. Definitely come on over and see the Welte crew.  Maybe we’ll even arrange for you to go out and practice in a vintage rear.  I have to get a little faster to keep up with Jeff there in the rear karts.  It was a heck of a lot of fun running with him and Troy at Delmar.

    You can definitely pick some great tracks to run at Rob.  And there will be independent races at Quincy and Concept Haulers Motor Speedway as well.  My dad and I made it to vintage races at New Castle, Springfield Mid State Kart Club, Sugar River in Brodhead all 3 vintage races, Quincy, Concept Haulers, Delmar, and of course we ran just the Saturday at the Rock Island Grand Prix in the dual rear engine karts.
