Nancy -- 201.913 mph record on a production ZX15!

We're discussing the upcoming show enough on this and that thread - that I'll start one for just the show.  Tell us if you're going to Pomona (24-26 January 2014), if you're taking a vehicle or looking forward to seeing one or another, who's going with you, where you're staying and who's buying the drinks, and so on.

Nancy and I plan to be there to represent landracing.com.  Stop by for a visit and maybe to buy a bit of the swag that we'll have at our "booth".

I am planning to drive down for the weekend. Just so far it looks like Poteet and Main, Treit and Davenport, Rob Freyvogel NACA 6600, and Danny Thompson will have both the Challenger 1 and the Challenger 2 which he is getting read for an assault on the wheel driven record. Any body know if the Vesco Turbinator will be there??? That would really make it complete for the present cars looking for the 500 mph mark.

The show is divided into 3 sections: The Future, The Present and The Past.

Ron Main told me that Treit & Davenport, Rob Freyvogle NACA 6600 and Danny Thompson are in the Future section.

The FlatCad will be there, in building 9, which is where I think all of the LSR cars are.

Being only a 6 hour drive from here I might make it over there. Would love to see the GNRS for the first time plus go check out the NHRA museum again. Its been over 10 years since Ive been there and they didnt have as many LSR cars there at the time.

Wife and I plan on being there for Friday and Saturday and then spending time visiting friends in So. Cal. We might also make a quick trip over to Vegas.

Looking forward to seeing all the cars!

I'll be there for two days.  From the SoCal people I know who have been invited to show, there will be some great cars there.  Can't wait!

Woody,
" This will be a follow up on my recent scoop article in Bonneville Racing News." Any chance you could run a copy of this article on Landracing? I don't happen to subscribe to "Bonneville Racing News" (and I don't know why!) so I missed it and am sure many of us would love to read it.

Thanks for the joggle of my elbow, Rex.  I checked just now and yes, the link to the BRN (in our Links page) does work, but no, it does not take you to an "e-version" of the magazine.  I think I'll ask Wendy if she'd let us post the articles here.  I know we've put Bill Hoddinott's work here a few times and probably others, too.  I'd be willing to allow a few weeks - a month? - to go by between when the issue hits our mailboxes and when I put it on the site - - so we don't steal readers from the paper version. 

I'll let you folks know how it goes.  Thanks again.

Since it only comes out 7 times a year I'll bet a lot of people would wait the month and that would probably for sure hurt her.  I doubt that she like you isn't getting rich from this LSR deal  and I'd for sure hate to loose her paper or your site.  Guys just subscribe to the magazine and keep donating here  smiley,

I'll be there from the day before until the day after (Jan 23-27), staying at the Quality Inn in Ontario (10 miles from the Fairplex).  I'll be with the Treit and Davenport team, plus photographing the show for myself.  I hope to be there in my Camaro and let it get out of the garage and see some SoCal warmth and sunlight.

Too bad all the potential 500 mph cars can't be there...

Like that guy who has the fastest open wheel car.... Didn't he just finish a 'liner? 'Ol what's his name.... Fearless, Fast,  grin

You know what I mean, guy's that have actually turned a tire too.....    cool
