Rich,
Any idea if we are going to race the extended portion of the track or any new sections for the Season Opener? It seems everyone liked the extended version.

Patty is read'n my mind...... :)

We will be running counter clockwise this weekend.
In April we will run clockwise and run the extended course from last year.
Sept we will run a new version of the track that will be longer than the extended, then Oct run the new one backwards.
$ different courses at one place....hope everyone will enjoy the new area.

We drained most of the big ponds today. So they should not come into play, no scuba gear needed. :)

As a group, no JeepSpeed is not part of vorra this year. but the offer has been made for them to come and play.

The ponds should be of little factor this weekend,

No time trials or qualifing, we will draw for starting spots, then reverse tha order for the second moto. Going back in history for this one event at least.

quote from the movie "Risky Business" comes to mind,
"Who's the U-Boat Commander?" Just kidding Patty. See you all tomorrow.

Rich, Not sure if you will read this before tomorrow. I hope to be there with my video camera, would it be a problem to get out on the course if I have my orange shirt on? I would like to get some last minute footage for our next video, Dezert People - Second Lap. I might even be able to bring and on-board camera to mount on someones truck...

Well then. Perhaps I can help with a little IN-CAR FOOTAGE! WOO HOO! Curtis, I got your address and will be sending the original tape to you ASAP. (It's still uploading, so give it until about 9:30.)

I must apologize to Fred Calasso. He was VERY upset with me for nerfing him about a million times during the 2nd moto. "If you're faster, just pass me." Naturally, we thought it was a blast and very clean racing, but he didn't see it that way. As you'll see from this clip he was holding me up quite a bit, and I could have cleaned his clock every time he parked it in the corners and zig-zagged across the track. I was expecting a high-five and a beer, but I got a s**t sandwich instead. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to try harder next time. Or perhaps Fred could speed up and solve the problem himself...

Patty, you're going to love this...

Good job to Rich Klein. The track was like a freeway! Maybe if there was more bumps?!?

See you all next time, and Fred, I owe you a beer. (You can build your own bumper)

Bill,
Very nice footage. What type of camera setup are you using in the truck. It sure seems stable and clear, better than most I've seen. Very nice to have the radio on the tape, too.

Bill- what was Fred complaining about, he chopped you off in the corner 3 separate times in the video. Is he wondering why his right bed side is tweaked? If he were on pavement, he would have gone around, and truthfully, I wouldn't have braked the second time he came into me on a corner. And he got the lead! You held your line just fine. Great footage.

If your gonna go, go BIG
