I'll be thinking of both of you.

Come to Marlo's pit site at Speed Week.  They will know where I am.

You guys were some of the first we met on the salt, and we'll miss chatting with you this year!


We'll see you next year! :cheers:

With Bonneville quickly approaching the anxiety of not running this year is high.  We will work on the car little by little when the heat subsides a bit. Parts will be ordered sometime in the fall and we hope to have the motor and car ready sometime in April or May so we don't have to push to be done.   Ya right, it's always a push somewhere.  Anyway, she's collecting dust right now and we want to wish all of those racing good luck. :cheers:

  Made Bville racer happy this morning, ordered new Crane 9310 steel cam and their pro-roller lifters. Same cam, same lifters,
as we're happy with the hp it makes. Pocket book not so happy :cry: :-D

  After checking that cam fits in repaired block, will order pistons and rods, same rods, same pistons.

  JL222 :cheers:

Good to hear parts are getting ordered. I know your pocketbook isnt happy but when are they ever happy when one owns a race car. Looking foward to updates and hopefully getting to see the 222 in person and meeting you guys next year on the salt.
