jer .
what years did you race at brainard ? i did a little in my brothers cart . not bad either .
The start is a bit hazzy as my children were born around the same time, built a house etc.

Stock Light about 81-82 to 86. I can't remember how often in a season but I have a vague recolection of late night parties in the pits/paddock involving a panel van with beer taps protruding from the sides. There were two or three guys from Ontario. Myself, A scots guy and a junior.

Nice going Jerry! I think I was on one of the oldest ships in the Navy...the USS Reclaimer (ARS-42) The Grasp was ARS-38) out of Pearl Harbor...Hull laid in 1939 I served aboard from 1972-1975, 2 westpacs...The Navy used her in a SinkEx this past year......the to then USS Okinawa (LPH-3) Amphibious Assault...Got to meet lots of Sailors and Marines...Finished up my Career in 1992 with 20. The best time I had was in Oahu because I didn't own a Kart, I was pronounced the Race Director fo the Pacific Karting Club. Gave it up a year later after going to Jim Hall Kart Racing School in Ventura then Crew Chief of a Kart in the club before I retired...Nice to know that there are some service members on here...

she (your skimmer) was there when i was . remember her . my brother served on the knox (frigate) and came brother duty , but could only get same port , course we didn`t need any BT`s on a sub . his friend from high school came also on buddy duty , but ended up on the kawishawi . big old wwII oiler . last time we played cat and mouse with the destroyer squadron we sank that oiler like fifteen times . our whole ward room sank her like twice each . i was at sub-base pearl , with two west pacs thrown in from may 75 - june 78 . couldn`t wait to leave !
say , haven`t i read that you have a service related dis . ? whats up if i may be so bold . sorry to hear that sir . i know , enlisted , just bein` polite . and i don`t mean to pry but we are brothers of a sort . i know several vets with service related boo-boo`s .

yes , the navy`s "chow" beat the army`s hands down . and , not just cause i was makin` it . at sea ; sub sailors ate like kings . crab , lobster , hand butterflied beef tenderloin , everything made by hand . 32 loaves of homemade bread made every night . we fed four times a day 6-12 and 6-12 . and you could sit at the table and eat till you couldn`t get up . some of the cheifs actually did . i was blamed for more than one E-7`s joining the "fat-farm" . nice chattin` with ya . . . . do it again sometime . sorry your brother sailed on a target !

jer aaarrrruuuggaahhhh , dive !
