Ok folks, I hope everyone of the 175 are ready and going through your loading checklist.

For those not fully ready you are on T minus 5 days to final countdown..

Get your race vehicle done, go over that checklist, then your gear, then your trailer loading checklist,, then the master checklist, then the final walk around checklist..

Oh yeah don't forget that little sticker you got from Tonya (that shows you are one of the 175)

Drive safe and see you all in OHIO !!!

Charles,

I hope you get one of those little stickers from Tonya that says you busted 200 MPH in the mile! Smiley

Have fun and go fast.

I don't know for sure but, seeing as how entries were capped at 175 some sort of 1-175 numbered sticker would indicate that you are officially entered.

Dan - Tonya sent us all (the 175) a special sticker - came in the mail a couple of days ago.  To get parked in the competitor's section you have to have it, and of course everyone is pre-entered so the paperwork is already filled out and in ECTA hands.

Look forward to seeing you in Wendover!

When I read this "...little sticker you got from Tonya (that shows you are one of the 175)" I figured a question need not be asked. All this has been discussed over the last few months.

Impound trailer is getting some upgrades. The SCTA has popped for electric lights of all things. A giant step forward.

See ya there,

Looking forward to the mile. Ran Bonneville last Sept. Want to see what I can do on concrete. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Loaded the Karmann Ghia last night and got our smiley face sticker laying on the dash of the truck so we don't forget it.  Should be on the road by about 6:30am Friday morning which will put us at the mile by around 11am.
