Kurt Busch totally controlled the program at the Milwaukee Mile on July 9th.  Very strong motor on the long straightaways, and he just plain walked away from everyone.

June 1st, 2013 Gear Headz Products Update
Movie Alert (again)-A new drag racing movie is headed your way, fall of 2013.  This one is about the "Snake", and the "Mongoose", aka Don Prudhomme, and Tom McEwen.  These two famous drag racers helped make Hot Wheels cars a household name.   We remember when Don got in a fender bender with his Hot Wheels hauler, on the exit ramp to US 131 Dragway.  Watch for the fully restored, original (ex-Richard Petty) Snake hauler, in the movie, along with the original (ex-Sox & Martin) Mongoose hauler.

Movie Alert-Well know director Ron "Opie" Howard is working on a new flick tenatively entitled "Rush".  The movie is based on the true life story of the battle for the 1976 world championship, between James Hunt, and Niki Lauda (Lauda Air founder).  The film team is made up of a number of academy award winners, and may end up being one of the better racing movies, since "Grand Prix".  Should be out, forth quarter, 2013.  Follow it on Twitter, @realronhoward

Watch for photos this week on Facebook,  from "Back To The Bricks",  in Flint, MI.  Got an autograph from "Large Father" Don Garlits.  Everyone quietly waited, while Don talked intently to a guy on hand, with a very vintage dragster.  There will always only be one "king of the dragsters".

Got to go to Clyde and Brenda's, to see their son Travis receive his Eagle Scout badge, this weekend.  Very proud moment.  We remember when Clyde first arrived in Michigan from Florida, with everything he owned in a couple paper bags.  Hard work and long hours paved the way to future positions as crew chief for Bob Senneker, Johnny Benson, and Glen Allen, in the ASA series.  He done did some drivin in the series too!  Nice to chat a bit with LeRoy, who owned a few championship winning short track cars, back in the day.  Good people make the racing game what it is.

The Kruse Labor Day auction in Auburn, IN is no more (at least for now).  They have had their auction license revolked, by the state of IN.  Issues in the past over sellers not being paid.   This has always been one of the great car events of the year,  for the Gear Headz crew.
