I wonder if the no stream message is generated if the system doesn't hear much for some present time.  I haven;t touched anything and it's gone off and come back a couple of times.

Here's a reason you're glad you are not here:  The flies are aggressive like they were about four years ago.  How the heck do they know to patrol out here -- miles from anything that might be appealing to them?  It's not like they were riding in the back seat of the car.  I've got a swatter but no flypaper strips.  Should have brought some, I guess.

Jon. I remember that from a few years ago when Ray The Rat posted about them coming after his bologna sandwich. I seem to recall he said they were flying in formation with their wings slightly back and making loops.  grin

The Big Red Camaro is about to run, but it'll be a glamour run - so to speak.  He's got cameras here and there all over the car, just getting some video of what's what.  I don't see it now, but earlier his crew helicopter came in and was video-ing the event from the air, too.

The course is clear - putting the net up on the window of the Camaro, engine is running.

150.924 and the engine still isn't sounding right.

Quick poll . . . How many of you have budget for a freakin helicopter!

Camaro sounded nice through the 5. 150.924 mph
No helicopter.

Edit - I bow to Slim that it didn't sound that good, hell anything sounds good from a thousand miles away!

Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.

Heard on the radio that George Poteet is ok. At the hospital and feeling fine. They are keeping him for a while.

Those of you listening to the stream probably heard it, but in case you didn't - -

George Poteet has gone to the hospital in SLC where he was given an EKG.  It checked out okay and he is fine.  He'll probably stay the night, I think I heard. Betty Howard, his sister, called Mike Cook with that report and she says she'll call back later today with an update.

We're waiting for the next run.  Studebaker or Akatiff or Mariani?

Hey! Thanks for the update on George over-the-air and for stopping the incessant typing long enough to actually talk on the microphone.

Hot tip - Pounding the keys as hard as you do is going to wear out your fingers.

Hot tip #2 - Killing flies is providing EXCELLENT entertainment.

Thanks for the verbal update on the audio stream Jon, I'm sure we all realise that with the nature of the shootout style event, there's whole chunks of nothing going on.

You're doing a great job! Hope George is back soon and everyone safe.

Think it's time for some more donations to the site!  cheers

Cook is on the radio right now saying that Eva and the Studebaker will both be ready to make runs in about fifteen minutes.  My clock says it's about 3.33PM local time -- you're welcome to pay attention to how long it really takes to get them down the course.  But at least something is going to happen soon.

The weather station in the timing trailer reports it's 70F, humidity is 11%, wind is negligible, Station pressure is 25.82"Hg, DA is 5690'.
