Off their website, http://www.blacksaltracing.com/

"Update September 7, 2014

The car spun at about the 3 mile.  It stayed on its wheels but enough damage was done that we are finished for this event. We are still looking at the data to determine what caused the spin."

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

At WoS, Ron announced on the radio that they lost an engine at the 3, caught air in a spin but stayed upright and lost some of the body panels. IIRC, track was down for approximately 30 min for cleanup.
I did not go over and get any pics of the car when they got it back to their trailer.

We all liked the smoke show!!!  grin grin grin  We've all followed diesel pickup trucks that seem to have a similar output.

Thanks Pork Pie. Great sense of humour.

I did pay attention to the smoke trails from the diesel engines out there at WoS -- and noticed that, for instance, Big Tim's pickup would spew heavy smoke early in each gear.  But the smoke almost disappeared for a couple of seconds before the shift.  I can understand why it'd be gone when he's off throttle -- but this absence appeared to be a bit before that throttle lift.  Was it from the engine starting to run leaner because it was finally burning most of the fuel?

My little green truck won't pour out the black smoke quite like the big ones, but it would certainly be a gross polluter if driven in ordinary traffic conditions.

Pork Pie - that's a great photo! - I'll contact you separately to see about purchasing print(s)

I can't speak for Big Tim directly, but the smoke trail most likely clears up when the boost supply catches up with the fuel supply.

Check this video of my Rampage on the dyno...  Lots of black smoke when starting from lower rpm's in top gear (about the 20 second mark).  When the rpm's get up, the boost builds to full strength, and the black smoke goes away (about the 27 second mark).  There's finally enough air to burn all the fuel.

I still haven't uploaded all the photos shot by myself and friends.

One of the real highlights was meeting people on the salt.

Here's a quick pic of Marie - who turned out to be a good luck charm for our team.

Every time she sat in the truck, we set a new record....



I told her to bring a fire suit, and she can drive it next time.

...and here's what the Rampage's smoke signals really looked like.  I don't know if the water injection has some effect, but the smoke is definitely more gray than black.
