SSS,
MJM put on an awesome event on Mar 6 in Mojave, and plan to put on another the 1st week in Oct, 2010.

Perhaps it is time to give that event it's own heading?

I agree with Karl, it was a very well organized, fun event that needs to continue.  What do you think SSS? 

It was great to see you there Karl, way to go with the 195 given the wind, 2500+ ft elevation etc.  Hope to see you at Maxton in May.

Scott,
Good to see you also, and it would be great to see you at Maxton in May. 
Since i need to drop my BUB plans for 2010, that may be a good fall back position.

I'll wait to see the rest of the comments about the Mojave Mile - and also wait 'til I see an announcement of the next event.  I don't have any photos from the event (except those posted here) - so don't have much to post if there were a separate heading.  I'll stay in touch, don'tcha worry.

SSS,
I understand about waiting a bit.

We have MANY pix and will post 'em here if you'd like.

The logistics, organization & safety processes of MKM were on a higher level than I have seen at Miami, Loring, Texas, or Maxton.
The MKM guys/gals are a small army that have apparently been working together for quite a while putting on hi speed races.

Fred,
Still a chance of BUB, but small.  I have bought a stock length arm, gonna fill it with lead, get new leathers specially for the salt, etc, so my heart is in the right place.  I just have a lot of irons in the fire.

I would have to agree, after all Loring has its own section as well as Swedish Ice Racing, it appears that the Mojave Mile will be a premiere event.

Add a vote in for me........ cheers

In ths spirit of racing I want to see all racers get lots of passes at an event. With that being said when there is no tow back and push starts it seems like the lines move faster, maybe I am wrong but I did make six passes in a 7 1/2 hour period which is a first for me............maybe it has to do with alot of the cars there were production cars and didn't require a lot to be ready to run.

Yes we love riding back to the pits!

Next meet is September 25 and 26?   Hmmm, that means that some of you can use the adrenaline from the Shootout to go really fast!!  What a great idea!!! 
Congratulations on your successful meet and continuing success on the upcoming ones!   cheers
