Also in Episode 24:

Dean Reynolds can’t let a sprint car discussion pass without chiming in, and becomes our second official spontaneous call-in (and helps spike our online viewership in the process).

We lose ourselves talking about the wonders of rental go-kart racing and the potential 31st Lap Outing at a local kart racing joint.

We also discuss a new ‘your topics’ segment… and need our listener’s input on Facebook.

Above all, we express our condolences to the family of Tom Ames, who passed away unexpectedly in a tragic car accident last week. Tom and Mike were friends way back in the Fire on Dirt days of Dirt Track Digest.
