It was a dark and stormy night several years ago when Todd and Brian met on the “old” Karnac message board. Both had a love of sprint car racing and were debating the merits of one Natalie Sather and her adventures at Volusia Speedway Park.

Create our own damn website!
Why? We think sprint car racing in Florida is in need of help promoting itself. We hope to give a somewhat serious, mostly humorous voice to the various sprint car races taking place in this great state of ours. Hopefully somewhere along the lines we can help bring some more fans out to the sprint car races.
We hope you’ll join us and listen in to our podcasts – and if we publish commentary, we hope you will read it.
Above all else, we’re just some fans trying to have some fun with this. The day that stops happening with this website, you will most likely see a blank screen of some sort. Don’t expect too much out of us and you won’t be disappointed.
