    20180529_105631.jpg I'm going again and again as a spectator. I didn't realize one could quit going once you finally started! I try to take a different car each year. This year it is my current avatar, '29 AV8 Sedan. I camp at the gravel parking lot just off the highway across from the gas station/store. Red GMC w/camper and red enclosed trailer.

    See ya there!

    It's not mine. I sold my roadster (seen to the left) because I could not maintain and run it any more. Bob Dalton and I have been friends for going on forty years and have had some crossover between us on our race cars. Since I had roadster cash. And they could use some help. I did. But it's still Bob Dalton's car. There are several people who put lots of time, effort, and money into the Flashpoint car. I think and hope this will be the year that it all comes together. 1170665_10201195874691411_677487532_n.jpg

  12. I understand that the 'Cruize the Casino' will be highly changed for this year. No parking in the front of Stateline.
    All parking will be moved to the upper deck of the parking structure. I am sure this will limit who will be able to park and not much cruizing.. It's a Casino, they want customers inside buying there terrible food with crummy service. Oh and the machines that want your racing funds.... It's their sandbox...

    I can't wait! It is my first time too after aborting a few years back when they cancelled. I see lots of friends in this thread are going as well so I look forward to seeing you @ol55, @383deuce, @Irishjr and I am sure a bunch of others since I did not have time to read through this in its entirety. I will be there all day Saturday and Sunday the 11th and 12th.

    I believe LandRace.com will have on line coverage. Sound only or maybe text. No video.

    Hey Tim, I showed my buddy pictures of you and your race team and told him to watch for you.

    He’s an old Scot named George G.
    Nice guy, say hi if you see him.

    Hope everything goes good for you on the salt. :cool:
