Re: Henderson Results?

Just got back a little while ago...did the trip from Los Angeles to henderson and back today. It looked like the herbst truggy was going to take overall as of the start of the 4th lap. Did they have some problems?

Ok...it's time to jump in the freezer...it was HOT out there. My trucks outside temp guage showed 117 when I was leaving!!! I'm sure there's some dehydrated drivers out there tonight.

Hope everybody crossed the line safe.

Re: Henderson Results?

results? after going out there and putting up with boulder cities finest, i don't care any more!

we drove out to the southern end of the course to watch through searchlight. yes, it was very hot, but ehy, we were at a race, so we could deal with that. well, along come the cops and they explain that the only spectator areas are at mile 42 and at start finish, period. ok, we will give up our prime spot and move to mile 42. WHO WAS THE DUMB A$$ who put the spectator area on the F(&#!^&? dry lake bed? we go out on the lake bed, the prevailing wind is from the west, so we walk across to the west side to stay out of the ZERO VISIBILITY silt and set down some lawn chairs. watch for about an hour and along comes johnny law again. seems we can't be on the west side of the track, period. have to watch in the silt! trying to reason only got mr. hand. I wasn't about to stay in the silt in 120 plus temps. we packed up and headed to cottonwood cove. it is getting out of hand, and they wonder why there aren't more fans.

So what are your observations of this very new SCORE event ?

- From what I have heard the BLM and SCORE where on top of their game to accommodate the registered Media.

- It was hot and windy at times.

- I heard of some spectator areas having a good time and getting loose. Girls showing skin. Brews being consumed...

- Scott Steinberger in lap one doing a fast lap of the event.

- Herbst Truggy going fast towards the last lap but then falling way back (what happened)

- Johny Campbel pulling yet another win... no surprise on anyones mind...

How did everyone like this new event in the SCORE series ?

Klaus,

Troy sheared the wheel studs off the rear axle. Before that he was flying on what I believe was the 4th lap.

Yup...as usual!!

I did see a couple people drive out past the roped off spectator area towards the track in a lifted golf cart. The po po was on them like white on rice. It was a scene straight out of cops...the bronco drivin' through the dez to cut these guys off!! Then they had them stopped for what seemed like about an hour. It was an interesting scene from the spectator area near the pit road exit!

Holy heat! I felt like I was in a convection oven with all that hot air blowing around.

Here are some 35 mph pictures taken from the PCI TT#7 trailor at the main pit. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.carterdesignworks.com/henderson>www.carterdesignworks.com/henderson</A>

I didn't like that drivers had to race like 200 yards and then slow down to 35 (yeah right) mph in the pits. Did SCORE even try to enforce this?

The BLM was great at this race, very helpful. Not much media after lap one, it was extremely hot out there. We stayed until about 9:30pm and went back to check out the after party at the Fiesta, there were 4 people there (non racers from the casino that were offered beer passes). The highlight of the weekend was Rick Johnsons newly built bronco, It is the nicest prerunner I have seen. Great job to Troy Johnson and Craig Stewart and whomever else had a hand in building it. The sudden storms at night are really weird, I had never seen a storm so strong come and go so fast. The turnout of racers was not very good but the effort by the racers was 110%, congrats to all the racers.

Re: Henderson Results?

I am probably the guy you heard about. I was riding with Jamie Campbell in 7S and the firewall got so hot it melted my shoes. The soles fell right off. We also had the computer mounted on the firewall and it got so hot that the truck stopped running. We remounted the computer and got going again, but we batteled severe overheating problems all day. We finnally stopped because the motor sounded so sick. The radiator was about 2 gallons low, so we filled it back up. The motor wouldn't start back up and we were done. It was just too damn hot out there!

I thought the 35mph speed limit was stupid at first. But after seeing numerous close call accidents in the main pit, I was glad they had it. A lot of the cars would be coming up the pit just as they came up the little hill, and then stood on when they saw that there were cars stopped in the pit and didnt want to get caught behind a vehicle.
