For the main June 2000 feature we asked four well known names in oval racing, each involved as either racer, car constructor or both, all involved one way or another with ‘restricted’ formula racing to give us their opinion on what you should do to be truly prepared to win – even if you don’t have the money. George Polley, Steve Davies, Doug Raymond and Dave Rippard gave us lots of useful info – and to ignore the rumours of “that guys got a ten grand engine and new tyres every race.”

Lots of news in the National Hot Rod Race Action Update, plus a feature on Gus Schrader and his race car number 5. He was known as the King of the Outlaws in the 1930’s, but the car had a very strange history, and no less than three owners were killed racing it. The car is now restored and is the property of Keith Elson.
