SCTA/BNI timer 1983 to 2004, Retired,. Crew on Tur

« on: December 16, 2016, 11:18:16 AM »

As many know there was a lot of damage on the car after a tire blowout at 400 MPH. The front half of the body was busted up and had to be replaced. Kent Riches took care of that. There was drive line damage as well so a complete rebuild in that area. So its coming together slowly. Yesterday we spent the day on shop equipment, Rick got the welder back and was putting it back together and adding a couple of hose hangers to it. I spent the day fixing the big band saw all new belts and a lower drive tire on the drive wheel( a Flat band to drive the blade. So with that done we are back on the  car, Still waiting for parts. With this major rebuild we won't be running the 444 Little Giant liner at speed week. More later. Every one have a safe and Merry Christmas. See you on the salt.
