    might be the only one, but felt a little sick watching that short clip, thank god we now have sense for safety, sometimes its overboard but atleast my journey home has a tale to tell my kid, hope all that watch this clip, think about wearing their helmet, and seat belts, and wont hurt to have a fire bottle.

    I felt the same way. Thank God for roll cages and seat belts.

    I know what to mean. We have tons of comments on how your frame needs to be x inches away from your head. What size tubing is the best for frames, suspension and roll bars. And here these guys (our grandparents basicly) start a vehicle with a key and go. No reguard for safety. Just winning!!!

    That's called "balls" and well the had big ones!! Now the hit the toilet bowl but there still big.
    No wonder swollen prostate hurts. That's a life time of holding the "MAN"

    Yes they had ballz, but also they didn't know any better. Of course we can look back and think how stupid it was to go that fast without belts and cage. But speed was relatively new and it took a few nasty accidents and deaths to raise questions about safety. Thank God we have learned from their experiences! Thanks for putting that video up, Rick!

    I live near a fairly large dirt speedway.My Uncle was racing those fenderless fords(and VW bugs!) back when it was just a corn field,just like in the vid.He was the first guy around to figure out how to widen the rims by cutting them apart on his huge azz lathe and welding in a section of pipe.After that everybody wanted them.Even into his 90s he had a paved and lighted(by a VW engine/generator) oval in his back yard and his old buddies would come over and race RC cars for hours.Good stuff
