Life has gotten in the way of making any progress on building my car...

But my goal this year is to get there as a spectator for the first time (possibly help a team needing an extra crew member?).

My goal... not to fall out of the timing tower.  Will be watching lots of you guys run this year.  Go fast, be safe.

Bravo, Rocketman (woops -- sorry -- that one's taken)  Roktshp:  You've hit on the great way to learn about the Bonneville stuff.  Spectate the first time you're there.  There is so much to learn and see and enjoy -- that if you're trying to race you'll miss lots of stuff.  LOTS of stuff that you really oughta see and do.  And you'll indeed have a chance to meet a huge bunch of great people (I'll be there, too) that'll shock you when you come back next time.  You'll be remembered and welcomed back.

See you on the salt.

Be there! My vacation slip is signed! Need to get the AC working in my Roadmaster!!! It was 100* most of the way thru Idaho last year. I don't want to experience any part of the trip without AC!!!

Speaking of goals, many of you will probably have the goal of comfortably emptying your bowels during SpeedWeek.  To that end I'll mention that SCTA/BNI has about 75 regular toilets on order for the event.  We'll do our best to place them well.

But lots of racers want private rental units.  If you're interested you  need to contact Trevor Inman at Honey Buckets to make the arrangements and pay.  His number is 801 330 7219.  Be ready to think about not just about the unit but also having it cleaned on schedule and whether you want stuff like a hand wash station or an ADA-compliant (a/k/a handicap) toilet. 

Trevor and his crew will deliver the units to the SSS pit and youse guys may arrange to pick them up from there.

See you on the salt.

If the track is as good as they say I think we have a chance but you never know what could bite you in the Acura. Next year we’re doing a different program  so if we don’t get it done this year could be a few years before we have another chance
