According to Nat Weather Service radar (storm total) rainfall the race course area got between a trace and .3 inch last night and 22 miles east they got soaked with 2.5 inches of precip.

8 hours ago Mike Cook posted the following on his facebook page.
Mike Cook's Land Speed Shootout
8 hrs

Last night's rain was minimal. No standing water. Wind is blowing. We will commerce grading the track tonight. Shootout is not canceled.


Will have to wait for more definitive word later I suspect, at this time, current radar shows some precip possible, but at this time just a trace well south of the racing venue.

Great week! We spent most of our time on the short course where you could make laps as fast as you can get ready. No line at all. Thanks a bunch to the USFRA folks and the additional help from the SCTA gang!

Pretty sure we set the record for the quickest time from qualifying to record run - qualified at about 4:30 on the short course, drove to impound, called Dan, he was right there (we were in impound for about 7 minutes, literally) then he drove us back to the short course for our record run as weather was predicted for the morning. Finished our run and were back in Warnerville being inspected by about 5:30. Smiley

Set two records with the little sidecar scooter at 38 and 43mph. One for my dad at 81 years old and one for his wife at 72 years old. Not fast but they have the records!

Wed 09/14/16-0515 MDT and radar is showing green in the area of the course.  Weatherunderground sez a 15% chance of rain in Wendover until about 1700MDT.

I'm figuring on heading out on the 5-hour trip from Boise, anyway!

I'm back at my boring "Day Job" after an absolutely fantastic time at WOS.

We completed a total of 7 runs with 3 drivers in the #672 H/DT entry.

Unfortunately, on the last run, the engine let go with my friend (A rookie driver) at the wheel. 

One pic pretty much tells the story....



Sorry to my other competitors about the oil on the track and the delay as we towed the broken Rampage off the course.

WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR!

I need to congratulate Brady Nish. After 10 years of driving the Volk Brothers Roadster finally set the B/GR record at 236 MPH during WoS. He is a good kid and drove it hard.

Does anyone happen to know these two jokers?

The one with the camera tried to distract me while the guy in the leathers picked my pocket.     grin

Author of this was PorkPie.

Well, I'm here at Jim"s (Texican) house.

Mother nature was not so friendly to get us a full season....but we had a great time...may be the greatest moment to see two long time friends getting their D license...Doc Freud and Texican Jim,

Doc on the bike and Jim in the USFRA Club roadster....the smile was wider than the helmet....


PorkPie,

I wish I would have stayed to see those smiles. Congratulations to both Glenn and Jim.
 cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers

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.

They're both actually quite harmless, provided you're penniless, and you haven't rented the guy in the leathers a car.

Although I still think the guy on the left is actually a Texas oil tycoon feigning a foreign accent in order to fly below the radar with the IRS.
