While performing touch-and-go landings, the airplane veered off the left side of the runway and nosed over. The pilot performed his second touch-and-go landing and added power for the takeoff. The plane veered to the left side of the runway and the pilot lost control. The airplane continued off the left side of the runway and into wet dirt where it nosed over onto its back. The pilot stated to the Safety Board investigator that he "applied all the right rudder possible" during the excursion off the runway, and that he "stayed with the power too long." The pilot stated that the airplane and engine had no mechanical failures or malfunctions during the flight.
