3rd Pass on Rough Course August 16th 2017

If your wondering if the course is rough or not take a look from inside the Liner. The course was moved a few times by this point on Day 5. It just isn’t like it used to be….Decades of mining have made it quite difficult for smooth passes…..

Two of my best friends…..

Sids a man of many talents even giving Sheri a piggyback ride to the Motorhome after our record return run so she didn’t have to walk in the Salt with her socks……What a guy…Sids a close second best friend…… but the girl on his back is #1. Sorry Bud

Goran and Lars getting the liner up and running after engine verification. Learned alot from these guys on the Salt. Thank you Gentlemen for your help! Goran fits in rather nicely however we may need a boat cushion so he can see over dash……

Low buck stuff getting it done

MAV

Well everything about this operation is low buck. Sid helped find the Suburban (MAV as we call it) for $900 if I remember correct and I bought the liner trailer a couple years ago for $600 and its been sitting at Sids since with the Liner first getting a ride on it here. The Camo for the liner cover Cousin Rick got a few years back and it worked awesome and even though hes gone now he was part of it…. along with his picture in the trailer watching over us. The Mav might just make another trip to the Salt…..we will see….

Mr. Al Teague hanging out with us…..

I had requested that Sid put a post on land racing looking for some spare land racing tires a couple months ago. Because he worked with Al Teague for many years Todd responded to his ad and he got us in touch with each other. IT’s quite nice having contacts in this community….Al was coming out to Speedweek anyway as there is a German company doing a documentary on Al so he brought some new Firestones along (NOS) and we will be fitting those on the liner. It is quite the honor getting to just chat with AL let alone being able to get advice from him as well. On the other hand Sid put many hours into the car and mentoring our guys and without him being there we probably wouldn’t have gotten a Red Hat as we had a few technical issues that Sid was quick to react on and fix at the line. Both guys are class acts and extremely knowledgeable. Got some valuable advice and training from both this week. Thank you Guys!
