I remember when the "Wide World of Sports"  fanned the flames on Lorenzo Bandini (Monaco, 1964?) and burnt him to a crisp.

If there is propwash on the course some one should make an offer they can't refuse.


If a heliocrapter caused a problem it wouldn't have been the first time...When will they ever learn....

Thanks for the insite guys and very glad that Burkland was able to get that sucker stopped!!! Any word on whether or not they will be able to run again?

Also, any word on Nish. I've heard everything from a cylinder head was sent back to SLC, to that their finished for the year. I see in the RTR's photos that they are still on the salt.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Lynn Goodfellow on a speedy recovery.

I'd like to know too. I've searched Google and Google News, and looked through the Google Blogs search results and found nothing recent.

Ray, your images are showing up just fine now. Thanks for all you're doing for us.

Got news from Curtis (driver from yesterdays record with the Mormon Missile)

Just 1st and 2nd burns on hand and face, nothing else ... helicopter landed in burn center, I believe in SLC

...our Duramax board.


A Google search for the phrase "Duramax board" nets 153 matches. Care to be just a little bit more specific?

If you've ever been burned there is no such thing as "just" 1st & 2nd degree burns. Really painful.  My hopes for a speedy recovery. The burns on the hand may prevent further driving.
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.
