Racing Discussion / Re: RIP Gene Hoose
« on: December 17, 2019, 04:29:13 PM »
 What I loved about the class was that there was so many different combinations that you could run. Bill Clark had a midget with a motor in the back. Bruce Detro  had a midget with the motor in the front.There was  multiple  different  chassis with the VW set up. Some would run the motor in the back with a Ford set up. I know the Subaru had the motor in the front but was front wheel Or maybe even all wheel drive?Dale Plank had a front engine car that was like an asphalt  modified. Larry Doolittle and Mike Latta , Build them like  dirt modified,  with Ford power in the front.  I do believe the limit on the motor was 2300 cc . And anything after that was pretty much wide open.  On YouTube somewhere is a video of them running at five Mile point. It's like an old nostalgia old speedway video. The guy actually walks  around the infield and looks at a lot of cars and they're different styles.

This was the beauty of the class they were VW’s,Subaru's,Chevy's,Ford's .Some guys ran midget chassis, some guys ran old modified chassis, Gene Built his out of a Volvo. He massage the Volvo crank and the block to except Chevy  rods and pistons. He made parts that had the Weber carburetors all working in unison. He made his own tools so he could check his own bum steer I never even heard of bump steer in the 70s he wasn't ever satisfied with the car he ran a  independent front end , Then switch the car over to  a coil over car and then a torsion bar all with the same car.He was meticulous at everything he did I remember him spending a whole winter just porting and polishing his head at his Kitchen table.Back then he was the only guy that ran airplane fuel in his car because the airplane fuel has more oxygen in it. I could go on and on and on about the things that he did that were way ahead of their time.

My uncle Gene Hoose passed away yesterday, I miss him already. This guy was a true racecar driver he never bought anything .if he need it ,He built it! He’s the only guy who is in the Hall of Fame at five Mile point being one of the 50 greatest drivers and in the Hall of Fame at Dundee speedway. This guy started 18th or  or worst every night and had the same front bumper on his car for almost 6 year , With almost 400 wins. That’s what kind of race car driver he was he did not need to bump you or move you to get bye ,he just flat out pasts them.  Mary and  Scott You have my condolences and may there be a quarter mile race track with 35 mini modified. In heaven

 They don't make race car drivers like Thomas anymore. In the 60s and 70s he built his own cars by himself from the ground up. He had documentation over five hundred wins. Didn't matter dirt or asphalt.Four cylinders, late models ,street stocks, he won a race in every class you could think of !!!  They put a bounty out on Mike Colstin, At 5 mile point. Thomas went down there that Saturday to Kirkwood and brought that money back with him.  I have thousands and thousands of stories about the guy. But in the end I'm just glad he was my friend.
