Good morning right back atcha, Mark.

And as I type that I see that Eva Hakkanson has arrived.  Not her bike -- that's still driving across the salt -- but she's here, so that's a good sign.

I think I've got the streaming site and title and stuff set up right.  There's no audio yet - so don't you all get on my case 'cause you can't hear anything.  I'll tell you when there's something to hear.

Bill G. hasn't made his shakedown (of the timing lights) run yet, so nothing's happening.

Tom, i think this is it. Not sure if it will open for you and they are not broadcasting yet. Hope this works and maybe Slim will correct me. Mark.

Yep -- that oughta work.  I say that without looking carefully - it doesn't change from event to event.  I haven't got the thing turned on yet, either.  Racer time is still in effect.

I'm about to make the official name change on the thing, though. This is the:

"Mike Cook's Shootout Presents the first Lucas Oil Varta Battery Top Speed Challenge"

Bill and I will be stationed down around the timing tower/spectator area around the 5 1/2.

The Nissan GTR will run first, followed by the Big Red Camaro.  The Nissan is fired up now.  I'm going to head to the tower.  This is just a test run -- nothing official.

Bill completed his run -- 143 or so.  Next will be Big Red, wearing #1.  He'll be the first "official" time.  I'm out at the spectator area, about the 5 1/2, and right across from the timing stand.  Bill and I will head over to the tower after this run.

212.319 mph

It was his shakedown run -- and the engine agreed.  Ducks are falling out of the sky all over down here.

Bill says that when he made his run he was skating all over, even with the all wheel drive.  The Camaro looked like he was hooked up faily well -- but the engine wasn't happy.

It's about half past 10 and the word is that the Speed Demon will be making a check-out pass in a few minutes.  Not a full-on run, but rather a warm it.  Main is at the car right now, but no forecast as to when he'll run. 

I've switched to generator power out here at the timing stand (Thanks, Alan Rice) and will be standing by to let you know what's going on.  I still don't have any reason to start up the streaming -- since it'll be few via the microphone built into the laptop.  In other words -- if I sniffle or talk with Nancy on the phone or anything -- you'd hear it.  when the time comes we might move the whole system into the timing stand -- it'll be more like a real radio studio, you know.

Stand by for the Speed Demon's run.

George Poteet just left the line for s shakedown run - and spun the car.  George is out of the car and is walking around.  No word on what happened.  Nothing further at this time.

I have no further information for you on the spin of the Speed Demon .  The various officials are down there - the car came to rest about the 3 1/4.

George is okay - nothing further at this time.
