Everything from here down is by memory.
Herbst class 1 was doing 105mph every time past us.
There was a blue truggy doing 113mph! and still gaining speed past us.
108-91mph, I remember them, because they were pitted next to us.

All of the Pro Trucks were right around 86mph

We moved to the top of the pit road for the TT's
Riviera-114mph and he carried that into the bumps at the end of pit road on Sat.
Enduro-108mph
Damen Jefferies -107mph
Herbst-106mph
Collins-110mph

The blue truggy is Tim Lowrance (sp?) "TLR". They ran no beadlock wheels that weekend and spun wheels inside the tire. Hope to see them again this year in Laughlin.

A Fan.

Waddel has the first TLR truggy. The black one. The Blue one was raced in Jean a couple weeks ago at the BITD race. John Currier was driving it and on the first lap he "ran out of talent" and rolled it.

I have a radar gun, and mostly likely will be going to pit for the motion tire one car. I will bring it if you want to use it.

Your number on S&S is spot-on per the on-board GPS. We were FLYING up pit road. Interesting to see how slow the others were. They didn't have a chance on that course.

I heard that S&S might be not (as) active in 2003.

I, too, will be radar-active at Laughlin. And at Fud's Dunaway Dash.

Well I just picked up the radar gun from the Snowmass Police Dept. and possibly another spectator. The cop I got it from was excited about what we are using it for and wants to come. We calibrated it just before I left so it should be right on.
