Amarillo Supermodified Persuasion
The gateway that leads to the West, regarding supermodifieds, begins at Amarillo. A long stretch of highway , be it Route 66 or simply I-40. If you were in OkC, all you had to do was get on 39th Expressway and go west about 200 miles! I-40 I'm sure made it much quicker, but still you had to appreciate a long road trip. Plenty of time to talk racing, supers, old stories, and look to see who else was headed out there. No cell phones to interupt the process, plenty of good stuff on the radio , and a supermodified looking at you in the rear view mirror the entire way! Of course you had to worry about trailer lights, trailer tires holding up, what you were doing with your life, and just how long could you keep going after they raised gasoline to 64 cents a gallon! You were less worried about getting back home than you were about getting to the Speedbowl--after all "They're running supers in Amarillo this weekend!!!!"
