We didn't run, Tony is working in Seattle. I did go out about 10 AM looking for Lee Kennedy who wasn't there. Light turnout, 60 entries or so, 85 degrees, light wind, course about like last month, didn't stay to see who ran fast.

Not much.  Like Jim said, small turn out.  Saturday was HOT and Sunday wasn't too bad.  If you want to gauge turn out and course conditions, I think my measly 204 pass might actually be the top time of the meet for cars.  The two other serious 200 mph contenders both spun (Joe Anderson in the Camaro (Firebird?) and a newer looking big long blue modified roadster).  BMR made what looked like a half track shake down pass.  Not a lot of cars and the course wasn't really holding up to high power/speed.  The bikes have it easy as usual.

Oh yes, we bikes have it easy. Nothing like riding a single track vehicle in someone else's ruts on the dirt. 😀😀😀

Mike Kaehny sent this along last night.  Sorry I didn't post it sooner -- had a minor kerfluffle.

 July Impound Insights – July 16, 2017
It looks like the masses stayed home as we all get ready for Speedweek. Maybe it was the 108 degree temps on Saturday but I’m guessing that saving up money and equipment for Speedweek was the biggest reason for the light turn out for the last meet before we head to the Great White Dyno. Technical inspections were done under some very warm conditions on Saturday and Sunday was warm as well but not quite so. Three rounds of racing were completed on Sunday and a total of 67 entries made 109 passes down the 1.3 miles of the El Mirage course. On to the records……
The first car into Impound was the #3600 Notabusa Subaru 360 driven to a 129.990 record by Larry Foley, Jr. in the I/GCC class. A few minutes later, the Aardema Braun Lattin #7 F/BGRMR driven by Cal Rothe rolled in with a record 186.116 time slip. Valerie Fenn was next in the #611 Honda running in the J/FALT class. She turned in a 114.235 record run. The 4th vehicle in was the #9999 Rice Vigeant J/BGL entry driven by Mark Vigeant. He ran his current record up to 187.023 with that pass. The final vehicle to make impound was the #94 Klos Racing V4/VOT driven by Gary Sutliff. Gary’s record is pending certification.
The #68B Ballistic Batteries entry, a 1650/MPS-BF Suzuki ridden by John Noonan posted a 223.893 run to start the stream of motorcycles into Impound. The #3587B Go-Go Gidget Racing entry Yamaha ridden by Tracie Carroll posted a 138.502 run putting almost 5mph on her May record in the 650/M-G class. Chet Michaelson riding the 1924B Geronimo entry posted a 154.132 mph run on an Indian in the 2000/M-PG class. Running in the 750/AG class on a Suzuki, Leslie Hoogerhyde riding the Hoogerhyde Honey entry bumped her May record a touch with a 167.478 pass. Entry number 2230B, a Kawasaki ridden by Steve “Papi” Chappell in the 1650/P-P class rolled to a 198.602 record run. Motorcycle number 235, the Munro Scout entry ridden by Lee Munro riding a 2016 Indian Scout in the 1350/MPS-G class posted a 186.61 mph blast. A Moto Morini entered in the 350/MPS-PBG class and ridden by Robert Smith posted a 123.310 mph run for the #2107B Red Baron entry. Another 2016 Indian Scout rolled through the lights at 154.354 mph. It was ridden by Dan Gervais for the #359B Scout II entry. The #7601B entry, a ’52 Harley Davidson was hammered to a 61.303 mph pass by Derek McLeish in the 50/APS-VF class. It was Jim Hoogerhyde’s turn to visit impound and he rode the #8282B Lightning Motors entry in the Ω/APS class to an electrifying 211.730 mph pass. John Noonan was next on the #211B Ballistic Batteries entry. The Suzuki Hyabusa registered in the 2000/APS-F ran a 200.940 to qualify on a 200 mph minimum. Quite the weekend for BB. Mike Tiberio riding the #231B Tiber River Racing entry posted a 141.693 mph pass in the 1000/M-PG class on a Moto-Guzzi. The last visitor of the morning, yes these were all before noon, was Dave Consalvo riding the #292B entry for Ridgerunner Motorsports posted a 184.158 mph run on a 2004 Hyabusa in the 1350/MPS-F class. The #254B Erlenbach Racing Yamaha entry in the 250/MG class was ridden by Ed Erlenbach himself to a 123.243 mph record. The #685B Moto-Guzzi, entered by the H.Alex Balogi team was ridden to a 130.156 record by Jim Bonk in the 750/P-PP class to finish a very busy day for the motorcycle impound crew. The #490B TVD Special entry ridden by Jess Thomas in the 650/M-VG class is pending record certification.
That wraps up the first half of the SCTA racing season. We look forward to seeing you all at Speedweek.         Race safe, good luck and we’ll see you on the Salt!
