    Well while I don’t post often I wanted to share as some of you may remember my race car I started 15 years ago. In the last year I got back on it and in the last four monthsi thrashed hard to get it to Bonneville this year. I did it!
    Whilst my brain is still recuperating I knew there was a handful of things I needed to do on the salt before tech inspection but as we rolled into town a big storm had rolled thru and left the salt wet as can be. Racing delayed I too delayed myself to stop and enjoy the car being on the salt for the first time and a long awaited relief came over me. With speed week delayed for days I was in no hurry to do much. Turns out it was time to get my guys home and we left for home on Monday afternoon. I have zero regrets about not going thru tech or not running my car. I made it to the salt and my car has hopefully a long life and future of racing ahead. I am truly thankful IMG_2891.JPG IMG_2893.JPG IMG_2957.JPG

    I remember that car sitting in your yard in Burbank when Eddie and I visited you with Piero in 2015. It did look very forlorn and unloved at the timeLOL Looks a million dollars now sitting there on the salt. Congratulations Lucky.
     
  4. Looks really great on the salt! I saw it once in person when you were still at Old Crow in probably 2011? It had a long way to go, haha! Congrats on getting it to Bonneville! Please post a video of it running when you have a chance?

    For those of us who didn't see it come together, do you have any pictures or details of the build you can share?

    Congrats on getting the car together. There is something about being on the salt.
