This is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. Great classic footage from 1921 Beverly Hills Speedway board track races. With names like “Shrimp” Burns and “Curley” Fredericks, you know these guys were tough. Picture going 100+ mph with tiny tires on a track made of wooden planks with very little protection in the way of armor. That took some serious moxie. Shrimp demonstrates that, as he crashes in the second race and comes back, splinters, wounds, bandages and all, to ride again and win the last race of the day. Known for his speed, tenacity, and toughness, Shrimp died four months later in a racing crash in Toledo. Both him and Curley would become Hall of Famers. Enjoy, and Happy Friday everyone. Have fun this weekend.

Mad day in Sweden: A cleaner stole a train in the middle of the night, ran it through the stops at the end station and crashed into a house. Amazingly, no one was killed and the only one hurt was the wannabe train operator.

There was also a huge 100-car pile-up, which I’ve never heard of happening in Sweden before. One person confirmed dead so far.

It sounds like a train is running through the house
