On 9-27-08 we lost a great friend and fellow racer, he was the BEST, he helped anyone with anything at anytime.  His name is Dave Owen and he will be missed by all that knew him and I am glad to have met him.  Get well Donna!

Seeing him at Bonneville during 2008 Speedweek was the tops, Dave was in awe of the salt and as usual was there helping out anyone who asked..simply put we lost a great man who will be missed by all.

Looks like to me based on overall points from last month and the points received from this last weekend of racing that the Buddenbaum Fabrication motorcycle streamliner #4949 won the motocycle points championship and also overall points leader at 1411 points (And I pesonally think that is the most awesome total points number in the world)

The number one car by my addition is the #2132 Honda RSX having a total of 1398 total points...

Geat job all

I don't know about the championship, but there was a discussion about a mistake made on the bud fab paper work, something about not having the alternate driver on the entry? cheers

Troy,


I thought it was because they changed the entry name from Budfab Streamliner to Buddenbaum Fabrication ?

I was not aware you could not have an alternate driver/rider on an entry for the SCTA/Lakes points championship?

Is this also in the El Mirage procedures?

Your correct on that John, but there was a lot of discussion about alternate drivers being on the paper work all year long; still can't figure out why that would be a problem. cheers

Great seeing everyone again.  Hat's off to all the SCTA crew for another excellent event  cheers

The Casper Report:  Got one run in Saturday at 141mph.  Truck went to 153, then electronics defueled it and coasted through the WELL MARKED finish line. Cheesy
Got back in line and didn't make it.  Sunday, made some changes, but still shut down at 153 but netted a 145 trap.  Had time for another pass, made some bizarre tuning changes, and truck did a Rice Crispy Runup, Snap-Crackle-Pop, but somehow got past the 153 up to a 157 before the lights.  Couple more passes and I think I would have figured the problem out.  Truck handled very well, with little wheelspin. 

It was so cold Friday night, that the truck would not start Saturday AM.  If the air is not hot enough, we can't ignite fuel.  We gave it a blow job by getting Kat's truck's exhaust pointed at the air inlet and reving it up, which worked.  Diesel exhaust is mostly just hot air, since there is no throttle.  So Sat night, Kat warmed up the truck at 12, I got up at 3a, and did it again, then again at 5am.  We also got the nose pointed at the heater outlet of our MH and put on Tom's Spiderman blanket on the hood it keep it warm.  Once again, Spiderman saves the day.

Now we are going drag racing again with the truck.  Put the 4x4 back on, remove the ballast and regear.  Hoping for a 9 sec ET with Kat driving.

God dang it, darn papework issues again...Why don't teams fill out all the main information and make 10 photocopies of it at the first meet, then you only have to fill out date and class and no more messing with wrong entry name.

Had a great time at Elmo despite the conditions which went from meerly terrible to truly horrible. Cold!!! Snow on surrounding mountains. Very windy on sunday.
I took my brother Pat as pit crew and another couple of friends who had never been before. Bart and John were both impressed with the friendliness and cheerfulness of everyone they met.
  Got a decent run in on sat with wheelspin the whole way. Ran 192 on a 191 record. Tried again sunday but course was really going away and there was a 15-20 mph headwind,darn. I suspected I would be slower but this is the last chance for a speed run until next year!!
Big thanks to John and the rest of the SDRC for all the help.
