what the?

while i was sitting in staging at the Loring meet i heard up ahead what sounded like an old Harley with a fouled plug. so i wandered up to investigate only to find this quasi-shovel. it sounded really silly but any taunting stopped when he turned out just shy of 90mph on this one-lunger.
the dude's plan was to get into a much lower motor class and skirt around a forced-induction rule at the same time. he managed to race so i assume tech agreed with him. the idea being that the front jug was simply and air pump to feed the rear cylinder and with some crafty reed-valving he is hoping to get a whole bunch more mass and volume into the combustion chamber. and this is one of the reasons i love grass-roots racing.
