    Pure awesomeness - and evidence of how cool this country used to be before too many lawyers took all the fun away.

    I've heard the old timers back home (southern Chicago suburbs) talk about this insanity - rumor has it they put coke syrup on the starting line as a traction aid!

    Apparently they would run through the doors and back outside into the snow - shutting down and then looping back around the building in the snow - that had to be a riot on slicks! I bet the tractor / snow plow guy was busy and saw some great stuff!
    There's always something new to learn.

      That would be the best way possible to get through the Maine winters.
