Yep, if you name your entry the Amo Steele Streamliner, Amo and Steele have to be members.  Even has to be the right Amo.

The bigger problem with that entry might be passing tech.

Well, the AmazinglySlowSturley lakester might struggle with tech also... Seeing as how it is almost April, and we are getting closer and closer to August 8th, and we still haven't even gotten our chassis back from the company building it in Ohio. The name I just made up will be the least of our problems. Does anybody here think that I can squeak by tech inspection with a car only half finished? :-D.

You'll pass right thru tech -- you just won't get to go to the track.

A half built racer will go through tech as Stan said.  It will be, though, a half passed race car.
Get off the stove Grandad.  You're too old to be riding the range.

Thanks for the encouragement Entropy. I appreciate it. I just started going thru the trailer yesterday, and it needs some work. Hopefully I'll have it up to shape in a few days. I am heading to Ohio in about a week to see how the chassis is coming. I think I'll start a build diary to post pictures and info. 137 days, 12 hours, 49 minutes until August 8th!

I know Stude drivers tend to live in the past, but I'm sure Stan Back can get you a copy of the 2012 program . . .  :wink:

See you in August, Charles.  That car has needed to hit the salt from the first day you took a wrench to it!

I am trying to have Ed Farrell's Firebird ready for Speedweek this year, and out of respect to him and his family was going to name the entry "Farrell Anderson Special". I mean, it's really still his car, I'm just the one trying to go as fast as it can go! Would the name rule apply, I think Ed was a member for many years, if not decades.
