For the first time since 1978 I have the opportunity to be a speck tater  rolleyes
See you on the salt  cool

My goals are simple:

A/   Get "permission" to go . . . . .
2/   Complete K16 assembly, development, tuning and installation into the Milwaukee Midget  (we are close and closing in, see the build diary . . . but engine should be completed 7/17 or 7/18)
d/   Get the car to "Bendover", hoping for "good salt" . . . . . .


Don't worry Bob, if the Milwaukee Midget makes it, we will have something for you to do, including slurping up various "liquids" . . . . . . . .

 cheers

Our testing is now complete on Friday the 13th at the LTA event in Maine I drove our rear engine modified roadster powered by a gas burning supercharged little Ford Flathead V-8  to A top speed of 200.9 MPH Im happy with the results next run will take place on the salt. The goal to add more to the record time will tell.   cheers

Spectate, watch and learn as much as possible, take loads of pictures, and meet loads folks.  Partner and I will only be there a couple days but there will be plenty to take in and do.  Next year we'll hopefully bring a truck to get a little salt on the tires and start earning licenses to compete.

Goals? How about "My goal is to make sure I'm prepared for the sun and heat."?  This is today's forecast for Wendover.

I made my all my goals and then some. I spent another fabulous, grand, glorious day on the "SALT" with J.R. and his dad. I got my hugs from George Fields, Betty Burkland, Frankie Silva, Dan Warner, the entire Spencer Racing family! And to top it off, I saw Danny Thompson break a record.  Great day!!!!!!!!

I made it back out after a several year break. That was worth it. Next year I will have a different plan. Probably bring my son who will be 12 and maybe just spectate for the first time since 02.

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?).

Goal met!

Local (to me) motorcycle racer, Mike in Tacoma, took me up on my offer to crew for him, and off to the salt I went.  I think I ended up being a genuine help to him and he helped me learn a lot that I wouldn't have gotten just watching.

I left the salt with new ideas for my car, loads of inspiration, a bad case of salt fever, and a group of new friends that I look forward to seeing again next year.

Thanks Mike!
