I received this photo from one of the racers (via email) yesterday.  I wasn't at Loring - but this looks like an old B-52 base to me.  Nice photo -- really nice -- looks close to professional composition - 'specially if it's just a snapshot.

It's a small (25kB) file - sorry I can't make it any bigger.

That looks like the new Texas Mile track.

It looks like the view from the pits west towards the hangar area at Loring ...

Very nice coupe at Loring.
I think the guys name was Mike from West Paris Maine. He just finished it this summer but it looked like it was built in the 60's.  Very nice.

Bonneville is proof that God loves us and wants us to go fast.

The Photo was taken by Tom Shay, the LTA press director and Computer guru.  He is a retired Novell guy and while he would not admit it, he is as close to a pro photographer as you can get.  The shot was pulled from our website homepage and is indeed pro quality in the format I have (4000x3000).  Tom has a site that racers can get pics from.  I will get his info up on the LTA site when it is ready.  I will also post a pic he took of my daughter off hand at the summer event to show his skills.

Not much mention was made about Eric Paquette's team. They brought 4 bikes and made about 30 runs. Turned in the top speed of the meet with an air cooled Suzuki over 250 mph ... and they made it look easy. He knows how to build a race bike. Great bunch of racers.

Eric is also working on a couple different bolt-on supercharger kits (based on a procharger I think.)  Great looking and performing machines.  I think those guys are having fun!
