I'll try to get some reporting on runs -- but not today. All we're doing is inspecting.  I've seen all of a half-dozen cars in the inspection line -- and dozens of bikes.  Nancy's out getting photos of the cars -- among other things.  Here are some of the bikes:













This is what I meant by "among other things":















I'll put up some car photos in a little while -- gotta get back to inspecting.

No, dang it -- having issues with the MoTeC reading some of the sensors wrong -- so we'll run it on motor but with the fairing.  Anyway -- I'm still re-learning how to ride it after 5 years or so.  Getting ready for Bville -- little steps are good enough.

Back at the motel for the evening, although a bunch of us will meet at the Mexican restaurant in an hour for supper (yes, at Maxton we stay at the same motel and eat at the same restaurants).  Here are the rest of the car photos from today:

Bill Murphy and the "Rustang":













That's it for Nancy and me for tonight.  Driver meeting tomorrow at 8.30 AM followed by racing -- as long as the emergency crews show up and it doesn't rain.

Good night, ladies and gentlemen.

Track was damp this morning = but we've now started running.  Fastest bikes and cars -- later, when the track is bone dry.  Now we're running bikes, fastest so far is under 120.  Stay tuned, folks.

Okay -- now we're running at full tilt.  9676 bike  -- a new-gen 'Busa -- runs 191.463.  A car or two have gone down the track -- 170 here, 190 there -- we're at it, boys and girls.  I'm in pre-stage -- about ten at a time are sent to the line for staging.  Works well this way -- no big crowd up there this way.  9602 Rod Nessman runs 161.479 mph.  Anyway, we move up every now and then, so I have a difficult time doing both moves and posts.  I'll try to keep up.

9652 bike runs 184.513. Sorry I don't post names or vehicle information -- it isn't announced, and my memory isn't all that good that I know each and every racer.  Deal with it, hey?

1223 is up -- the little Falcon Ranchero straight-6. 96.269 with nasty sounds coming from the motor at the lights.


Hold the course -- those noises did some work on the course.

We're in the front of the pre-stage line now -- so this'll be my last 'til after I run.  The 9702 circle track car just ran a 172, Bill Warner about to run next.

Bill -- 5112 -- runs 268.202 mph.  Engine missed a few beats in second and third, too.  Gotta check that tuneup, Bill. . .

Nope, no sign of Shane here.  Let's see -- Bill Warner ran another 268, Dean Sabat a 219 on the 1000 turbo.  Dean's on the way to ride the "gas bike", as #1107 is known.  The big-motored Victory just ran a 163.886.

Cars -- unh, the Van Blarcom roadster a 196, didn't I hear?  The 1223 Falcon Ranchero got it back together (didn't break, just had a poor run earlier) and ran 123.

Josh Owen just ran a 184 on the #1302 bike.  9150 next -- blazes through the lights a 106.905!!!
