The Vintage Snowmobile Club in Marion, MI put on a excellent race, show and swap meet. Second annual for them and had a sell out crowd. Lots of racers showed, there were a few Rupps, one came all the way down from Manistique Mi. (in the UP) with a 340 3D. He ran in the open class, walked away for three laps then there was that funny smell and sized it in front of the grand stand, what a shame he was doing so well! I ran a Sport 295 in the stock 340 class and took a forth place (couldn't turn in the corners (1/2 mile flat ice track). My first time at oval racing, so I was quite pleased. Looking forward to next year. If you live in the area, keep it in mind for next year!!
keep it up you,ll get better everybody has to start some where , you have to just keep tuning on , its real neat about the 3 d ,,that should give you something to shoot at i am to old to do the circle stuff, i can still get it in a drag race though
Hey Daniel, I made the trip to Marion Saturday with my dad we had a great time.We saw Troy Smith's 72 Nitro 340, 74 Nitro II, and his 76 Nitro all very nice. A lot of other great sleds too . My dad took some pics. I think there's one of your sled on the track just before the race. I'll post some pics when I get his camera.
chuckrupp77nitro: I have a 77 Nitro 440. It is flooding out on the PTO cylinder. Has good spark. Do I need carb kit or what are your suggestions?
