Q)"I take it Aug 1 and 2 are cast in stone now?

A) Definitely probably. We don't have any options as previously outlined due to other LSR dates and our "Threatened" resident nesting Bird.

Q) Is there such a thing as an unprofessional firefighter?

A) The Fire Service up there consists of many levels, from pure Volunteer , through EMT only, to  fully trained Firefighter . We got the pros now.

 Q)(meant to be a rhetorical question). If there is they can be the Assistant Site Safety and Health Officer "

A)Only if you carry around your acronym on a sandwich board. With no pants.

Jon,

Now there's a question for the ages. Or actually, aged...... Glen ?
Officially, I'd highly recommend NOT going commando up there, one of those legendary North Maine B-52-ish Black Flies might mistake you for a winged Albino thing and have it's way with you.
Was that your question ? Does everybody not "aged" know what a sandwich board is ?
Is there a SSS porta potty joke in here someplace ? Tune in for the next episode....

Hope to see you running 240mph Mr. Caputo!

I don't know about fast, but the three from Texas will be Entropy, JohnnyCheese, and myself. Maybe more to come.

Mr. Caputo??? You must be talking about my Dad and 240 is still a long way off.  I'd be happy to bust the 230mark first.

Bob, there is a lot of discussin about what distance you are going to run. Could you please let us know? Everyone is hoping that you will run 1.5 miles. There are already two places that run a mile on pavement. I have talked to some of the Texas guys and they probably arent going to make such a long drive to run another mile venue. In my opinion you would have a much better turnout if you run the 1.5 mile. Just my 2 cents worth.  Fred

I agree. Looking long term, assuming this is going to be an annual event, mile and a half gives it a unique identity. This has the potential to be a must do yearly event for a lot of racers instead a 6th one mile date for the east coast.

Your Quote; "You guys on the coasts seem to have all the fun... don't worry Carl, after the "big one" your venue will be on the coast too".

Refers to ? The LSR Event Here In Lovelock?  Haven't heard a word locally on this, but, who am I?

LVM, sorry to take so long to answer.... the big one... you know, the one that makes ocean front property in Arizona... while it is serious stuff if you live in CA, it is just fun for the rest of us.... until it happens  :|

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The accelerating surface at Loring is over 90% asphalt, only the first 1000 ft is concrete. Better news for tires, not so much for the ideal traction  of 100% concrete. Like somebody else commented, it's like a very wide straight older asphalt country road.
Every vehicle will be considered according to it's Safety equipt, it's speed potential, and the drivers' experience. It's everybody's first event there, and Safety will be the first, second, and third consideration. I will be a major PIA on this.   We all go 25 mph faster @ a time, one increment  per run. The only considerations will be to current SCTA/ECTA Comp licenses, but the rookie run  policy will apply. I'd recommend serious inspection of the brake system, practicing using BHP for deceleration, (usually not so much used in LSR), appropriate laundry for a longer faster course (cars) , and a stock of fresh readily available underwear if all the former doesn't provide prompt access to the return road.
After the pavement ceases, it's sandy soil, then Canada.
JON !!!... Really gonna miss NANCY, and you. All that could go rong, date-wise, went rong with our first event. Next event you can do a "LTALKs" up here.  We will get somebody to post daily updates to this site, I promise.
We got a cadre of Great Volunteers, car and Bike techs from up this way, I'm very happy. Hope to have some very state of the  Art Timing equipt, and our tin cans Commo got fresh strings !!! lol, relax.

Wish it wasn't so far from Texas, and so close to Speedweek. The biggest thing is so close to Spreedweek. I would love to run 1.5 mi and have a mile shutdown.

Bob,
 What is the rookie run policy to which you refer?
Thanks!
