I can attest that she was NOT "flying" the side wheel when she went past here -- so she was, indeed, on three wheels. evil

I mentioned this on the stream -- here it is on the Forum.

The #9913 Studebaker is going to make a couple of low speed runs to give the driver some set time.  He'll start around the four and go through the measured mile at relatively low speed.  He'll then go back, this time to the three, and make another run - faster this time, but not an all-out pass.

Eva is done for the day but will be back "first thing in the morning" to make a pass or three.

The Big Red Camaro wants to make another video pass yet today, this one from the north to the south.  It's just for the cameras - won't be all out.

And that'll be it for the day.

The engine is running in the Studebaker and the driver is about to leave the line.  It'll be a 125MPH pass, remember, so don't be waiting for a huge and satisfying roar as he goes past us.

Nice looking pass.  Through the 6, chute out.  137.081 mph

If you're not listening you've missed the latest bit.  A car of unknown origin sped down the road between the track and the mountain, heading towards Floating Island.  He was going at major boogie speed and showed no signs of slowing as he passed the spectator viewing area.  About the seven he passed by the course worked that had rolled out to intercept him - and he kept going.  The FM radio was full of chatter about the car - and finally the course worker was advised to let the guy keep going.  If the worker got to the 8 1/2 he was to stop - and the unknown would stop whether he wanted to or not soon after that - when he got into the mud.

That was a few minutes ago and there's no sign of him at this time.  The Studebaker is waiting to run - but can't 'til he's given a "clear course". 

The Stude is running and about to move out, and the tower has cleared him to run even though we don't know where the interloper is.  All we know if where he isn't - that's on the track or anywhere the jerk could be a problem for the race car.  It's going to be limited to something around 150 or so. 

The tower reports the other car is so far down that he couldn't get back in time to be a problem.  Butthead. . . evil

Oh, yeah -- what time will we start tomorrow?  Well, I haven't heard anything form Cook but I assume it'll be the usual 8AM racer time start.  I'll find out and let you know later after I talk to Mike.  Here comes the Stude.

Let's see -- here's a wrap up of what I've just heard.  First of all -- tomorrow's start time is 9 AM, not 8.

George Poteet has a compressed disc and is resting comfortably at the hospital in SLC.  He is doing well enough that he apologised for farkling up the meet (my words).  He hopes to be back out here tomorrow to look at the car to see if he and the crew can get it back together in time for World Finals.  He says that he'd like to take the group out here to suppler tomorrow night.

In other stuff, Mike Akatiff and Rocky Robinson are on the salt and will take a ride down the course in the street vehicle in a few minutes, getting prepped for running tomorrow.  The Mariani streamliner is here and will also hope to run tomorrow.

And Alan wants to turn off the generator so I'll sign off for now and get back with you when I've got my power system up and running.  That might not be 'til I'm back at the motel.
