A machine built to “eliminate the impossible,” The Eliminator from BJ McLeod Motorsports allows race teams the ability to simulate on track suspension travel at the shop or at the track with this cost-effective, portable machine. The Eliminator’s unique design will enable your team to have a distinct advantage over the competition!

With The Eliminator you will be able to accurately check the following, without having to remove shocks and springs: square all four wheels at ride height, full travel or anywhere in between, check rear steer, bump steer curve, caster curve, camber curve, simulate tire deflection, suspension travel for clearance, body clearance for tire rubs, accurately align the drive line, use your shock travel indicators to set your bump stops and have your cross member heights set before you leave the shop, ackerman and toe-in.

For more on The Eliminator, call BJ McLeod Motorsports at (863) 602-4842 or visit www.bjmcleodmotorsports.com

A machine built to “eliminate the impossible,” The Eliminator from BJ McLeod Motorsports allows race teams the ability to simulate on track suspension travel at the shop or at the track with this cost-effective, portable machine. The Eliminator’s unique design will enable your team to have a distinct advantage over the competition!

With The Eliminator you will be able to accurately check the following, without having to remove shocks and springs: square all four wheels at ride height, full travel or anywhere in between, check rear steer, bump steer curve, caster curve, camber curve, simulate tire deflection, suspension travel for clearance, body clearance for tire rubs, accurately align the drive line, use your shock travel indicators to set your bump stops and have your cross member heights set before you leave the shop, ackerman and toe-in.

A machine built to “eliminate the impossible,” The Eliminator from BJ McLeod Motorsports allows race teams the ability to simulate on track suspension travel at the shop or at the track with this cost-effective, portable machine. The Eliminator’s unique design will enable your team to have a distinct advantage over the competition!

With The Eliminator you will be able to accurately check the following, without having to remove shocks and springs: square all four wheels at ride height, full travel or anywhere in between, check rear steer, bump steer curve, caster curve, camber curve, simulate tire deflection, suspension travel for clearance, body clearance for tire rubs, accurately align the drive line, use your shock travel indicators to set your bump stops and have your cross member heights set before you leave the shop, ackerman and toe-in.

A machine built to “eliminate the impossible,” The Eliminator from BJ McLeod Motorsports allows race teams the ability to simulate on track suspension travel at the shop or at the track with this cost-effective, portable machine. The Eliminator’s unique design will enable your team to have a distinct advantage over the competition!

With The Eliminator you will be able to accurately check the following, without having to remove shocks and springs: square all four wheels at ride height, full travel or anywhere in between, check rear steer, bump steer curve, caster curve, camber curve, simulate tire deflection, suspension travel for clearance, body clearance for tire rubs, accurately align the drive line, use your shock travel indicators to set your bump stops and have your cross member heights set before you leave the shop, ackerman and toe-in.

Not sure about Ryan specifically, but remember all the teams get two practice sessions today and they’ve already practiced for two days. If your car is pretty good (and Ryan Moore has been top-five both nights), no need to practice too hard and either go in the wrong direction or tear your machinery up.

Comment From GENE PARRY 

Any idea why Ryan Moore did not practice in the Super Late Models??

We just received the preliminary entry list from USAC officials. This is NOT final, so we can not confirm nor deny that Kyle Larson will be here tonight. All we know is he is not on the entry list as of this moment. Like you, we heard quite a bit last night that Larson might be coming here to New Smyrna tonight. But for now, the answer appears to be “no”

“Old School” is the approach the Southern Super Series is taking in their debut season of 2013. The 16-race slate brings together five racetracks in four different states and will include such legendary races as the World Crown 300 and the All American 400. Alabama’s Mobile International Speedway and Montgomery Motor Speedway, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway, Georgia’s Gresham Motorsports Park and Tennessee’s Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville make up the facilities that some of the best Super Late Model racers will compete on with the series this coming year.

The inaugural season’s opener comes on Saturday, April 6th at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. For more details on this event visit www.southernsuperseries.com and http://www.fairgroundsspeedwaynashville.com/

They have to push start the cars as they don’t have starters. They are very fast here on the Smyrna high banks.

Comment From Lenny 

Why do the USAC Midgets have a longer practice session?

No sign this practice yet of defending World Series titlist Jerry Symons, who wrecked on the first lap last night and needed a hook back to his hauler.

 

1:08

Florida Modifieds have hit the track for their first practice session. A quick debris caution and we are now full throttle.

Ricky Brooks reminded the teams that they need to be on time for everything. Many of the penalties handed out yesterday were due to cars being late to tech and the race lineups. He realizes we are all here to have a good time but we are on a schedule.

Today’s Trackside Now coverage is presented by The Eliminator.

A machine built to “eliminate the impossible,” The Eliminator from BJ McLeod Motorsports allows race teams the ability to simulate on track suspension travel at the shop or at the track with this cost-effective, portable machine. The Eliminator’s unique design will enable your team to have a distinct advantage over the competition!

With The Eliminator you will be able to accurately check the following, without having to remove shocks and springs: square all four wheels at ride height, full travel or anywhere in between, check rear steer, bump steer curve, caster curve, camber curve, simulate tire deflection, suspension travel for clearance, body clearance for tire rubs, accurately align the drive line, use your shock travel indicators to set your bump stops and have your cross member heights set before you leave the shop, ackerman and toe-in.

For more on The Eliminator, call BJ McLeod Motorsports at (863) 602-4842 or visit www.bjmcleodmotorsports.com
