In extreme cases, fallen riders have 2 foot slivers of wood driven into their flesh. Jim Davis(header pic) was to survive the Motordrome Era (often known as "murderdromes") after deaths at major tracks soon lead to the closing of motordromes everywhere, one by one. Davis went on to win at dirt track events across the country - winning the very first crowning of the national championship.

Champion L92YC has just a bit longer reach with a few more threads - it gets your spark in the combustion chamber a little better. The stock-style plugs are slightly shrouded.
