MDE, what was the cause of the fire, a oil leak or other?

Glad to see that he's doing well. Kudos to all who keep this thread going. I feel like a blindman being fed by caring friends. Thanks for taking care of all of those without the ability to see it personally. We live it vicariously through your eyes and ears. Without you, we would have to get our information from the mainstream media who's only interest is something that involves a ball of some kind or some act of violence. Thanks from all who have followed this thread. Doug

Don't let numbers fool you. It could just be the same 200 people reading the thread 10 times a day, for their fix.
LOL. I am one of them.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Don't take this as the gospel truth, but I think Sam Wheeler started a run but shut down early.  It was either that or he got to the mountain end of the course and decided not to run...maybe because of wind...I dunno...but he didn't make a full 2nd run.

And...here's the photobucket album of day 2 of the Speed Demon's rebuild by the Poteet and Main crew.  Man!  These guys have the frame and inside of the liner looking like there never was any fire.  The body skin on the other hand...well, it's still crispy on the outside (soft and chewy on the inside?  Don't go there.  I must be gettin tired...I'm even goofier than normal.)
