"The Booger Hole Bandit is running strong," according to Eddie Piggott, who with Rick Rickard, owns the Calhoun race car. The car is 22nd in points out of the top 200 racers in its class. 2000 such cars are in the category up and down the east coast.

"We've had to put in four motors already," said Piggott, who said the car has taken some knocks. Last weekend in Jackson County it landed on top of another racer, for what he described as a free ride. A wrecker had to pull them apart.

The racer is in the 2000 class AMRA, open-wheel, modified international series.

This Friday the race is at the I-79 Speedway at Shinnston, a Road Warrior event, and on Saturday at the Elkins Speedway. The intensive weekend schedule lasts through October, and includes races in three states.

"It will take $16,000 to keep the racer going between now and the end of the season," said Piggott. "I'm really grateful to our sponsors and our team," he said, which includes the crew, Frankie Yeager, Cody Cale, Kevin and Steve Hartshorn. "We also owe a lot to Tony Arthur for some special help."
