Dirt track racing in Indiana. Going to the fair grounds when he was about 5 or 6 and watching the races. As they are entering the fair grounds, one of the race cars comes flying off the track landing in the hot dog stand. The driver gets out and pushes the car back onto the track.
One day Shep, Flick, Schwartz, and Bruner are watching the races. The lead car blows the engine. The driver jumps out, kicks the car, hits it and walks away in disgust.
