When do they hit the track?

How long until someone tries to beat the Clements high jump record?

I've got a 5'er on the Big Bird for the three-peat.

I'm thinking the post event interview will go something like this........ According to a dream I had last night.

.....In an amazing come from behind victory that left the racing world stunned, local mid pack racer Jon Lee moved from 30th to 1st when the 29 cars in front all got flats and drove into the dirt....


Oh well I can dream right???


Back on topic, the paddock is really full and it looks like it will run out of room soon! MMP is huge with tons of parking so there are a ton of people here. Most all the SM crew is located in the same spot so it should be fun.

Cars are on track soon. There are quite a few fast cars and drivers here, My money's on Dan Mckeever. He's a dark horse to most of you but has a lot of time in an SM and more miles around this track by a multiple of 5 than anyone else alive!

Should be fun! I can't wait until tomorrow when the action really starts.

I'll be intersted in seeing how Chris Griswold does. He's our AIX "wonder boy" in NASA Mid-West competing in SM this year. Him and Brian Domont have had some great races this year.

Based on the Q1 results top 6:

1 99
1 1.8
4 1.6's

Too early to tell, but for qualifying it certainly looks like the 1.6 will do well here. I have to pull for Valavar so my 94 will be worth more when I sell it this winter...

The race doesn't start until 4:20, or is there a time difference in UT? Either way, the T&S hasn't changed lately and it's still on lap 3, are we looking at live T&S?

I think we all get the message that you have some difference of opinion with penalties for over-aggressive behavior in NASA. No need to beat a dead horse...

"LiveResults" looks like it died a couple hours ago?

Race will be live on SpeedCastTV, you have to pay ($20?) to see it.

I don't think Versus has said yet when they will show it.
