  • Mini-racer looking for track

    Willard Price, left, of Hodgenville, showed off a mini-late model racer he bought in Tennessee. The previous owner raced it at 411 Motor Speedway south of Knoxville. Price and his partner, Junior Puyear, along with other family members, drive it on a local track, getting it up to 33 miles per hour. On a larger track, it can reach 97 miles per hour. Price hopes a local track will form a class for the mini. If you are interested in racing minis, call Price at 765-9560.
