Nancy -- 201.913 mph record on a production ZX15!

Tell me about it, Freud. The first night Nancy and I were in Wendover a few weeks ago we were getting some stuff in Smith's and saw Marcello buying lettuce and stuff.  He saw us and came over to say hi and make sure we knew he'd moved the restaurant.

And that night when we walked in George (Jorge), Marcello's oldest boy and the guy with the super memory -- greeted us with a "How's the race course looking this year?"

I will say that the truckstop has many more trucks parked overnight - and during the day - than in the past.  As if it were now a "real" truckstop.  Ad many of the drivers we saw while we were there appeared of eastern ethnicity (trying to be proper here) and they might well appreciate the revised menu.

Live with it and deal with it.  The Metro (nee Salt Falts Cafe) is good.

My guess... the guys that run the station bought it... and wanted to open their family restaurant...
raising the rent assured them the SFC would leave.  Didn't eat there, don't know if the food is good or bad, we went to the Copper Kettle when we could get in, the SFC when we could get in... sure miss the taco and ice cream place.... the lady at the KC got some ice cream for our desert...

We made sure we ate at the SFC after reading all the rave reviews on here, from past years. Ended up having lunch there every day that we were in town! The food was awesome, service good and the prices...... they're almost giving it away from what we're used to. Two of us ate lunch for $14 total, We would have to pay that much for one plate of food like that up here!

I would say the move was good for their business. When the racers aren't in town the locals are filling the place.

Its good to hear they're busy when we left, because we ate breakfast there almost every day and never saw a local inside. 
The Copper Kettle was good too, albeit slow service.  They did make us an apple pie special for a B-day celebration. 

The taco stand kiddy-corner from the Nugget was the best food we had all week!!!

Good, because you probably wouldn't have liked the warm beer.  sad

I overheard one of the waiters in the SFC mention that for speedweek they asked the locals to stay away expecting racer traffic but that the rest of the time had a good local business.
