August 13th, Day 5, Update #2

August 13th, Day 5, Update #1

Last night’s Salt Talks event was a blast. Many thanks to Jon and Nancy Wennerberg for organizing the event. There was lots of great food and several great raffle prizes. The gentleman who had the camel in the pits yesterday (yes, a real, live camel) stopped by and allowed everyone to pet and take pictures with the animal. We even had some pyrotechnic entertainment after the sun went down. I had a lot of fun and I think the other attendees did, as well. Thank you to one and all who came out for the event


Speaking of fun, I think my neighbor at the motel had a little too much of it last night. I heard him praying to the porcelain god early this morning. Actually, it sounded more like a desperate plea. I’m guessing he’ll be skipping breakfast at the Red Flame this morning.

I have some more updates for you from this morning’s racing:

- #623 Saline Solution, class XO/BFL, Terry Haines – driver. Terry ran 205 mph yesterday on a 193 record. Terry’s times today were also in the 200s. I recorded a 209 and a 213.

- #608 Dauerheim-Biglow, class AA/GL, Don Biglow – driver. Don was pursuing a 267 record in this class, but his speeds this morning came in at 259, 262, and 261.

- Tim Billington/Tracer Racing driving in class F/FS ran 214 in the quarter, 222 in the first mile, 235 in the middle, and 238 in the last. The record for this class was 220 mph.

- #44, class B/BFL, Fred Dannenfelzer – driver. This vehicle went 343 mph yesterday in pursuit of a 338 mph record held by Joe Law. Fred had a minor mishap with the vehicle, preventing his backup run for the record. They’ll be back up and running shortly.

- #99, class E/BGC, John Raines – driver. John ran 252 mph yesterday in his ’89 TransAm. The standing record in this class was a 214. John’s times todat were 234 in the quarter, 242 in the first mile, and 227 in the second.

- #462 Hot Rod Magazine, Dave Frieberger – driver. Dave went 248 mph yesterday going after an open record in the comp coupe class. Dave went 251 today and is looking at about a 249 mph record.

And a quick update on the George Poteet Speed Demon streamliner. They got the vehicle on the salt this morning for a test run right after the record returns were over.

Also, Mike Akatiff may be bringing the Ack Attack streamliner to the salt tomorrow if the weather and conditions continue to hold up.
