Well, it's blocked on my electric machine -- maybe you can make it work.

I like how you point the camera at the CB radio so we can "see" the speed!  tongue

Come on, John.

The speaker for the CB is on the bottom of it.

We're too poor to wire it into the truck.

I;ve just posted Dan Warner's "Impound Insights" on the home page of this website.  I've usually ALSO put them here, in the Forum, but this time they are two full pages long.  I decided that being that long I didn't want to ask all of you to read all the way through to find the next post here, so go to the home page (www.landracing.com) and you'll find them right on the top in the middle.  Enjoy reading about a super-fine weekend (from what I hear).

Skip Pipes roadster with Nathen Stewart driving also spun as did Pete Prentice. High boys put on a show.


I had heard that you came all the way out from Utah to join us so I thought I'd give you something fun to watch while up in the tower.  grin  When I find some time I'll post up a video of my spin.  Once the car decided it was done spinning, it left me rolling backwards.  Too bad I wasn't on course otherwise I think I would have gotten backwards top time of the year.

I dont know, I saw Prentices spin and when he came out of the dust cloud he was still hauling azz but just running straight backwards. If he could have steered the car about 10 feet to the south he might have tripped the clocks with triple digit speed!

Nathan,

You did it in fine style though. I'm glad we didn't lose any style points for reversing through the course! evil

The last weekend at EL Mirage was great in many ways.  Each year we bring the young men's group from our church out for a Friday night camp over. Lots of dads follow us out and always have a great time. Thanks to all the racers that stopped what they were doing to chat with some of our group. BUT, I really want to thank the rider of motorcycle 768.  As we were leaving, we stopped my truck near  the traps so my grandsons could see the high speed and the chutes being deployed. 768 came through the traps and then made his swing to the return road and stopped just in front of my 6 year old grandson Sheadan. He started a conversation with my son and grandson and Sheadan was just swept away by it all. The rider was kind and very polite and also happy to talk about what was going on with the bike.  Sheadan was so impressed. he made a d full report to grandma when we got home. Yesterday, we got a call from my ex-daughter-in-law and she said "WHAT is this 768? He won't stop talking about it!"  Tanks gentleman. we've hooked another one!  And a special thanks to the starter that wandered over to the fence and gave Sheadan a Speed Demon pin.  He doesn't want to take that off either!

That's a good example of how a small kindness shown to a kid can have deep and lasting effects. Good for 768!  cheers
