Rick- You never know; we just might meet up someday, either at Winterport or Mirimachi. You're a little less than 300 miles from Mirimachi, almost the same distance as it is from here. Long hauls to go racing in Atlantic Canada are part of package; both our regional ADRA and Atlantic Pro Tree series have us racking up some serious miles. It's about the same distance for me to get to Mirimachi Raceway in New Brunswick, PEI's Raceway Park and the Cape Breton Dragway at the other end of Nova Scotia. At least Greenfield Dragway is only 85 miles away. I logged over 5000 miles just towing back and forth to 11 events, and I chose not to attend 2 points meets and 2 others were cancelled on account of rain. At an average race, a win just about pays for the fuel used in the truck and race car; almost never enough to pay for any luxuries(like new slicks, lol).
I will certainly look for you if I ever venture to Winterport; it's only 450 miles! Considering a bunch of local racers regularly make the trip to Epping, NH, which is 9 hours from here(635 miles), it's not out of the question.
P.S.- I would suggest a gear change if you ever make the trip to Mirimachi; I would recommend a set of 4.30's so as you don't run over your crankshaft at the stripe; it's all full 1/4 mile around here except for Saturdays in PEI.
