Throttled Garage:
Should you use the kill switch to turn off the engine?

BMW recall.

Flat track: Springfield mile on Sunday, don’t know if I’ll catch it before the show.

In yet another example of what appears to me to be marketing ineptitude, the times for viewing the race were virtually unobtainable, and every time I tuned into live streaming on when one of the warmup, qualifying, or actual races should have been running I got … nothing.

Even now, with the race over and the results in, I cannot find a description of the race. So I will give you what I have, just the results. Once again, Mees wins, indian sweeps with smith in second and baker in 3rd, Halbert on the yamaha in 4th and the Harley guy, robinson on the new xg750 in 5.
