    Was a ton of fun! Definitely going to do this again and take a whole day or two - here are the pictures I took in between rubber necking at all the ratrods, speed runs, and cool rides!

    The radio stream is going well. They are currently in a race delay playing some historical stuff.

    I did not see the incident but heard it was a spin that turned into an end over end tumble. Not good. They have been running since then but there have been a few fires causing short delays. Speed Demon burned up his wiring harness from a small engine fire this morning from what I heard.

    5PM, due to wind and lack of ambulances the day is shut down to runs. Back tomorrow for about 10-12 record runs to start the day. Sounds like about 4-5 hours was lost due to incidents. If the EMS is transporting someone there is simply not enough ambulances to run. Like any race venue.

    Yeah, it was a bad day out here accident wise. All 4 ambulances were tied up.

    We are sitting waiting to head into town and just watched Vesco pull through headed out to the salt. I had heard they had engine problems and would not be attending.
