Slim,

What was the number on that K Diesel Streamliner that ran 50 on the Rookie Course? Could you give out some info on that car and team?

I don't have a copy of the entry program.

We were only able to spend Sunday and Monday at Bonneville.  Sadly we had to take off but met many many amazing people.  This racing community is THE best. 
Thanks to Slim for streaming live and please know your efforts are greatly appreciated.  I tossed 290 pix from camping at the bend, the car show at the Nugget and cars at the pits.  Link to my pix can be found at:
https://imageevent.com/peteh/bonnevillespeedweek081219
If you see any pix of you that you want removed, kindly PM me the number of the pic and I will take it off!  Thanks to all the people we met who explained so much about the classes, engines, tuning, racing, etc.  THANKS!
Slim, I still have a racing book for you in SLC.  If you head back this way I have a cold beer and the book for you!  PM me if you are running through SLC.

Does anyone have know why Land Speed Louise was removed from the meet on Sunday.  The qestion was on SCTA's Facebook page.

I heard that she drove down the course when nobody was supposed to. Which resulted in her being removed.  Rumor.

Day two of runs begins in a little while.  Ron is out there now but hasn't sent any news about the courses - so that's good.  He sent a pic of a nice sunrise, though.  I'll leave for the salt and start the stream so you can listen to the drivel of the day.  See you on the salt.

I'm at work and can't listen in.  From what I've read,  the salt is less than ideal.  Has anybody made it to impound this year?

From what I heard,  couldn't follow the stream continuously (being at work), there were quite a few turn outs today.
But a lot of records have been broken already in the 'slower' classes... so a few went to impound and need to do the return run.
