the SCTA pre stage was not without incident... on monday i was stuck in one line that barely moved for 4 hours as other lanes smoked by....and so was 2 scta board members (Russ Ayres and Jim Lattin) we were passed by Bob Moreland in another lane.... needless to say the problem got fixed Dodge fast.... and that folks is the lesson.... it got fixed quickly, that day, and permanently..I think Denis has the ability to identify a problem and come up with a solution.... i think he must be overloaded out there or he would fix the problem. the lack of good salt and not having the ability to run multiple courses doesn't help

Guess Bob has a faster car than you guys  evil, good thing he wasn't on "bull dog"  cheesy.  You also forgot to mention that he is a board member with less seniority  wink , but your point is well taken.  Big changes this year in SCTA and they look to be positive ones for the racer to me  smiley ,

The easiest and most efficient way to accommodate the multiple requirements of the BUB procedure has been thoroughly explained here before and communicated to the promoter.
It has been done before on the Salt with the mix of National and International record scheduling requirements.
Given proper attention, it works very well with a small crew, and has for a long time. rolleyes

I did it on a whole page here, right after the first BUB event in answer to a question from SSS I think.
I went back over my stuff here from just after the first BUB meet in 04, and everything is missing for August and Sept., July skips right to Oct.

All the problems can be eliminated by having Mr. BUB contact Jack D. and have him run the meet. There would be no lines, no complaining, times to run, etc. Evenyone would tell how great it is. There would not be any problem with any part on any M/C as Jacks photographic mind and memory knows everything about every M/C ever built. You would not need to write any records out because he remembers all that too. I just don't see any problems after Jack takes charge.   rolleyes

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.

As evidenced by the lessons learned over time, they need to change the complexion of the event and a number of people are very capable of doing it., and have.
Common sense is a good place to start.wink

Scott, thanks for the kind words, but it wasn't just us four, it was about 100 hard and dedicated racers working to make it happen. Wasn't easy but we all love this sport and it was for the racers that worked all year or longer to run their vehicles. Thanks to the racers for working with us and under this side step plus the 2278 runs later on two courses that had us all wondering how long they would last. Thanks to every entry and spectator for your patience.

Glen will remember the last conversation he had with Higbee at the start the first of the 2 track method used by SCTA.
I do.
He will remember that day forever, and Sami will remember the shoebox full of presents she got at the end of the day.
The results of that day compiled, proofed, and were posted that night in 3 locations, as was the tradition.
I will remember Wendy getting a full set of the weeks previously posted results at the end of the meet within minutes after the Herbert machine ran for the first time.

I believe there should be a note here that there was a lot of delay at the meet do to the racers.  I did not run the last few days, so I enjoyed watching the runs.  One thing I would see over and over was racers powering to the 6 mile mark Huh and turning off at somewhere around the 7 or 8.  There was even an announcement during the week asking racers not to drive to the 9 mile when it was no were needed to shut down.
Also please note the turn off area was in better condition this week then at speedweek.  This added time on the track made for alot of track time by these racers (the time to find the racer after the turn off sometimes doubled the run time)

A delay caused by the failure of a racer to follow instructions before being allowed to run, is easily policed by withholding the speed until a suitable discussion has reminded the entrant of their continuing responsibility to others.
 Experience shows it really works and has solved a lot of problems.

This method was applied also.  Racers were told if they ran under a 175 on the long, they had to talk to the timer in person.  But there was no accountability for taking a joy ride for a few extra miles.  I believe speedweek moved a long at a good pace because of good shut down practices.
