    The bend in the road is a very popular place.

    We're heading to the salt again this year. Didn't want to come back as a spectator again but at least we are going! Will arrive Sunday am. See you on the Salt and we'll be the two sun burnt guys saying eh! after every sentence!

    Thanks Rich Fox for the help... Just waiting for for the new winberg top fuel crankshaft.. we will run whatever percentage it takes....Sold my car. Couldn't run it anymore. So I thought I would help these guys a little. No more 32 Plymouths and 55 Packards. It's getting real now.

    We will leave on Thursday the 9th, tech on Friday, go to the driver's meeting first thing Saturday and head out to run immediately after. We are either going to break record, break parts, of break the driver. But as always enjoy the snot out of Speedweek! The crew for #348 C/GR

    John, do you have anymore shirts? I'm bummed I didn't get one. I'm in VA too.

    I'll be flying out from Washington DC on the 8th. I fly to Phoenix, rent a SUV, drive to Yuma, AZ, pick up my uncle and then we are driving up to Wendover, stopping in Piocho Thursday night, then Ely Friday night, then staying in a dump of a motel in Wendover. We are staying until Monday afternoon, then driving back to Yuma and I fly home to DC on Wednesday.

    We did this same trip in 2014 and the race was canceled one hour before we got there. We still had a great time though.

    "horace urrey, post: 12647288, member: 99418"]now I know why this time of year the craving for unbearable heat, sunburn, alkali dust, sun blindness and loads of satisfaction keep attacking me. was a 6 year old kid in 1949 when we were on a family vacation and was allowed to spend 5 or 10 minites looking at strange looking smelly cars that sounded wicked and have been hooked ever since.

    Horace, you're a "Forty-Niner" spectator!?! How cool. In '98 I got a bunch of the surviving Forty-Niners' signatures on a pair of Moons...

    Hot Rod Tommy, when I tell people, "I'm a 49er", I get some strange looks! Not quite the same as the group above because that's the year I was born (Sept.). The Only cure for Salt Fever? Go Back for More, ya'll have a Blast!

  30. I didn't make it down last year, stuff came up. I took my nephews down several years ago they had a great time. I asked my granddaughter (13) if she wanted to roll down with me this year. Yes, I really want to go. OK Great! Im going to be camping this year. Super tired of the battle to get a room. Wait ... no room, no pool, no air conditioning? Nope we will be roughing it ... She changed her mind lol (but Im still gonna work on her).
