They say that when racing gets in your blood, it never leaves. Mark Royston is proof of that. After a long absence from racing, the 32-year old Hampstead native jumped at the chance to get back in the sport six years ago.Royston races four-wheel ATVs in the outlaw quad division. The division is a fairly new class that does not have a lot of rules, hence the outlaw label. They race at Trail-Way once a month and are racing at other tracks including Challenger Speedway in Indiana, Pa. The quads, another name for four-wheelers, race on the same oval as the cars, but there is a difference -- the cars have roll cages and the quads don't.
