And it's an official race.  I just got a scolding from Kieth Turk - and I was driving Mike's support truck.  Sheesh!

On hold here.  Amy Hartmann just lost a window, the crosswinds are too high, and the first sprinkles of rain just showed up on the windshield. I'm with Mike in staging -- about 10 in front of us.  Hope we get to run.

I just heard we'll go back to racing after a long wind hold, but I don't hear any engines yet. . .

We're on a wind hold now at Blytheville.  It's cool - 44F cool, that is.  We've had one or maybe two cars over 200 so far - sure wish the weather was better.  The bikes haven't run reallly fast -again, the wind is the hassle.

I'll stay in touch, hokey-dokey?

I'm also interested in the run logs. There were a lot of runs Sunday afternoon when everyone was licensed up and I was busy playing crew with 3 cars. I'm guessing it'll take a couple days for ECTA to get the trailers home, rest, and get the run logs up.

Sorry, all the files were numbered and in order but Google's AI (Artificial Ignorance) cannot sort by file name only by date!?!?  :cry: :x
