    Ever been to Attica?


    Here ya go. Attica has been doing a fantastic job this year with packing the stands, car counts, track prep, and getting the show done at a great time. Give them a look if you have the time.
  2. In Topic: Question on Engine Code

    This isn't really racing related (unless you count that it's for my tow vehicle) but I have a question on an engine code. I've seen on here in the past some good help from people on daily drives so I thought I'd ask. I have a 2001 Silverado with the 6.0 gas engine. I am getting a P0300 Random Misfire Code. The check engine light seams to trigger mainly when I'm coasting from speed or maintaining speed. I don't notice any actual misfire, at least not enough of one I can discern. My question is, can this code be caused by an exhaust leak? I know I have a leak at the exhaust manifold gasket and was wondering if once I rectify that my misfire code might go away. I guess I'm trying to be lazy and hoping to not have to go through looking for vacuum leaks, checking coils, and checking injectors to track it down.


    An autozone scan will not reveal anything other than what you already know. A P0300. They may give you a list of things it could be, but the bottom line is that code can be triggered by many things. Could be anything from old plugs, bad wires, O2 sensors, even an ECM. It is a pretty large list of things that can trigger that code. If this was my truck, I would start by looking at spark plugs and wires. If they are old, and just do not look good, change em. If they are newer, and look to be in good shape, it may be more cost effective to take it to a trusted shop and let them do some live scanning. They can actually observe most of the sensors, and what they are doing while the vehicle is running to help pin point the issue. Sorry, but this code is probly the worst one to have, just too many variables. Good luck.

  4. In Topic: In The Age of FB, Is A Website Worth Having?

    Posted 13 Jan 2018

    This place will pick up when we start getting closer to race season. I know it will. To just close a website like this up, and try to revive it, at a different address even, it is going to take time. Race season will help. People like myself, Big Ed, and a few others just need to get things going again. I am honestly just kind of burned out with racing in general right now. But, we will be green flag racing at Spartan Speedway in 103 days from now, so it will not be much longer before we all get the bug again.

    I am growing to hate facebook more every day. If it was not for the pages that I help maintain, I would not be on there any more. I do think an MSTRC facebook page could really help support this site though.

    I am a bit surprised this did not happen sooner. When I was with the AVSS back in the mid 2000's, they talked about dropping the sanction back then. I also thought Berlin dropped the sanction a couple years when they had issues with a young racer in the SLM class. But, it just goes to show how much I paid attention the last few years. :???:
