  1. From Yesterday:
    Speed Week Pre-Trip Update #3

    Today was our last day on the Salt. Course 1 was finished being groomed. So now we have 4 COURSES! All groomed & ready to go! The Salt is simply FANTASTIC!!

    Also worth mentioning, the ramp at the end of the road is like a freeway onramp!!

    Thanks to the entire crew for a JOB WELL DONE!

    Also thanks to Intrepid Mining Co. for their continued pumping efforts. It helps!!

    That's all for now! Start packing!

    SEE YA ON THE SALT!

    Just go!! jeez I have gone there from New Zealand before with NO BOOKINGS. There is always somewhere to stay and eat. Talk to people , spare beds always materialize...You only sleep for a few hours anyway...I have even slept on an air bed in the back of my pickup in the KOA.... it's safe enough there and if you are there on the right night, m there is always a chance that you will be invited to Chilli and margaritas with the Bean Bandits.

  18. There will/should be the Inliners at the KOA for grub, be sure to pay.
    Don't know if HOPUP will have their 100mph banquet
    Montana Dodge Boys always have something up their sleves
    At the KOA, they ask that you pay a little to cover for showers and pool if you slide in with your buddies.
     
  19. If anyone plans to stay into the week, we found that the room rates dropped as racers and other attendees headed home after the weekend busy-ness. If you don't have a room on Saturday or Sunday, stick around because they do come available.
     
  20. Sorry for the bad movie quote,,,,,,,,,,

    I'm beginning to feel the need. the need for SPEED!
    We leave Tuesday, set up sales cover on the start line, Chick will be inspecting all you dirty neck racers,
    Saturday morning meeting at the start line,,, then let the music begin!

    No....a little up on that but who could know that getting a room that way. I know these outfits keep sections of rooms Speed Week or not so maybe I was just lucky.
     
  24. I will be there walking around and watching with our car club. Just look for the Midnighters shirts.
     
  25. Hoping our buddy Jerry Garcia will show, also a Midnighter

    Sun screen, hat, binoculars, spoting scope, camera, you could stay in salt lake and drive out.
