This weekend is the Annual AMA Racing Awards Banquet in Columbus Ohio,
and I would like to wish the best of times, and congratulations
to all of the AMA motorcycle landspeed record setters.

Unfortunately I will not be able to make it either.  Can somebody with some influence ask the AMA to please take it back to Las Vegas!!!

Most of the Gray Ghost Team attended and had a great time. Nice to see and give a big hug to Delvene.  There was a good representation of the BUB Land Speed Racers, check out the BUB Facebook for pictures.  The food was astonishingly good, I mean like really, really good stuff, and the desert table - Forgetaboudit, almost too good to be legal.  :-D
Only a few minutes away is the Hall of Fame Museum, and a must stop.  One of the best displays of mcy history you can see.
All together, it was a great time seeing some of our salty friends, even if it was just for an afternoon & evening.  :cheers:
I personally hope they keep it in Columbus, just a few minutes from Pikerington, home of the AMA & MCY Museum.
Vegas is for gamblers & gambling.
Now its time to get ready for the next AMA-BUB 2014 meet.   :cheers:

with the weather you have been having in IL lately I would think you would want to go someplace warm like Vegas Jimbo!!!

Sandy here, Chris' wife & Land Speed Rider, NOT to belittle how important he is!  I would never have stood on the stage accepting the awards if he had not built my salt bike!  It is still a bit surreal.  The AMA museum, the wonderful dinner, the classy MC personalities and the amazing awards!  Looking forward to this year.  I want to break one hundred mph!  :-)

Sandy, it was nice meeting you & Chris.  I am sure you'll get to that 100 mph mark with people like Chris on the team. Good luck - see you two in August.  :cheers:
