The number I heard numerous times today was 45. Tim said he was expecting about 70. Weather was bad today, but all is a go for tomorrow

Still sounds like enough to make it a worthwhile event...

We got most of the work done...now if the darn paint would only dry!  :-D



We'll head out early AM, looking forward to seeing some folks tomorrow, and racing Sunday. :-)

The corvette lost a push rod.

     Could always be worse, the lighter noises are better than the deep knocking one$.  Still a bummer though not being able to use all that track and time available.

     All the best for a fix of some sort before the end of the meet.

Don Roberts - White Beard Racing - 116 cubic inch shovel head.
