Like yesterday, quite a pleasant surprise of the number of cars and bikes for inspection/pit setup today. Can't wait for racing to begin tomorrow. Had a good time seeing old friends and meeting new ones! Again, like yesterday, my pics a from inspection lines as I did not get a chance to get to the pits for pics. I STILL don't have a pic of Speed Demon.....definitely tomorrow!

Enough babbling from me.....LOL!  grin

Weather for today was spectacular with temps in the low to mid 90's and low humidity.
As you could imagine, without having run for two years, there are a ton of folks with their bikes and cars. I heard someone say there are 465 total entries and I can believe it. Just look at my first pics from the drivers meeting this morning! There are three courses for this meet: a 5 mile long course with 3 miles to stop; a 3 mile short course with 2 miles to stop and a 2 mile rookie course with 1 mile to stop.
My pics from today are from the drivers meeting, staging for the long course, staging for the rookie course and finally staging for the short course. Never made it to the pits.....maybe tomorrow!
Had a good time seeing old friends and meeting new ones!

Now off to the car show at the Nugget.....Tough job but somebody has to do it!  grin  grin  grin

OK!, Enough babbling from me.....again!

Weather for today was again spectacular with temps in the low to mid 90's and low humidity.
From the SCTA website this morning, I saw (IIRC) 645 total entries and there were 26 bikes and 19 cars that qualified for records yesterday. I heard this morning that all did indeed set their respective records! Congrats!!!!
My pics from today are from the early morning record runs, staging for the long course, rookie course, short course and finally from Warnerville (Impound). I did make it to the pits but did not snap any pics there.
As previous days, had a good time seeing old friends and meeting new ones!

I might not snap any pics tomorrow as I'm really not seeing any new bikes/cars coming in. Also, tomorrow is my last day here and then my wife and I are off to Montana.

I test drove one of those when they first came out.

If I hadn't abandoned it on the side of the road, I'd still be driving it back to the dealership.

Sounds like an ad for a certain foreign auto maker: "80% are STILL on the road."  (I assume the other 20% made it back.) afro
