The last race of last season a local racer called me regarding his A and B mod dirt cars. He said he just couldn't beat this one car who always dominated both classes.

I told him to increase the jet size on his B mod two sizes and ask how his A mod was jeted. He said it was rich so I told him to leave it alone.

The next night, Friday, I gave him 20 gallons of U4.4 for the B mod. I didn't have any CHP in stock as it was to new, so I used the U4.4.

I won't tell you what I gave him to use in the A mod, but gave him five gallons and told him to add it to his fuel tank.

In the B mod race, he smoked the fellow who usually was a lap ahead of everyone else, and in the A mod race he beat the previous winner also.

Can any of you tell me what the previous winner had been using in his B mod to win all the races?

I'm guessing that a dash of Nitromethane might be in use here.,.  It's a little like gasoline that's been premixed with nitrous oxide.,. this fuel comes with it's own oxygen supply of atoms, to help it burn.
