    Mr. Indy and the Super Kart....

    Norton on the brain. No, those were Clinton Engines and they were bullet proof.
    On many Friday and Saturday nights, we wouldn't get off work until midnight. The night crowd would get hammered over at Jerry's Supper Club or one of the other nightclubs. The women would come over dressed to the hilt. Ron and i would sit on the end tires at the start/finish line waiting for a chain to come off or some other freak accident. The Karts ran clockwise around the track and the women would come around the end, with one hand on the wheel and one trying to hold their dress down. A perfect view from where we sat. Mr. Sleepy would sometimes fill the gas tanks too full and i remember one loaded guy going around the track with a steady stream of gas coming up out the breather cap and landing perfectly on top of his head. The poor guy was oblivious.
    We only got paid 60 cents an hour, so on every Saturday night when everyone was gone, i backed my 51 Merc Convert up to the gas pump and filled up. Other than a few Black Labels and a few phone numbers from pretty girls, that was the only perc we ever received. Good times were had by all and hopefully they'll always be stored in the back of the mind....
