September 27-30, 2012 – Another bittersweet weekend…sure, we love to go to Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, but the September event means the end to the AMRA season. Sigh.
It rained off and on Thursday, but we were okay with that because it meant that the weather had a better chance of moving out of the area for the race weekend.
As many of you know, we’ve been struggling with our carburetor since we rebuilt our motor after that fateful blowup back in 2010. We were over-carbureted and we knew it. We were finally able to switch our S&S Super G to a Super B during our off-time in August and September. We tested it out numerous times at our local track, Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan, but something was amiss with that carburetor, so our super good friend and mentor, Super Nate of Super V Cycle, joined us in Bowling Green and hooked us up with a super Super B. We had to start back at Square One, so we truly needed the Friday Test session to work on our combination and dial the carb "in".
