The Moore Bros own all the GT class land speed records with their vettes;n/a  Blown, Gas, Fuel, over 500ci and under 500ci, stock GT and modified sports.

I beat their ZR1 last May by .1mph and Friday I beat their ZR1 in the mile by 6mph with my new engine!

We sucked at the speed class and didn't get the Ultimate Challenge invite.  But ... we were definitely faster than ALL the vettes there, again.

Jim Peruto ran his Chevelle and had a tires sensor tell him tire had caught fire so he stopped and once stopped you cannot move again.  Bad luck.  The other Unlimited Car was a 90s nascar style Tbird that no one knows what happened to.

Our friend (Hemifamily) bought a Z06 to come race my GTS.  But ... the engine blew up so he built the engine and added a 6 pt cage - to beat my GTS.  "Gonna replace you as the winner," Mike said.  "Gonna spank the Viper," Mike said.  Finally got his car back week before last (same time I got my new engine running) and he tested it at ThunderHill track.  He added nice race seats, safety harness, Michellin Sport cups etc and a really good sounding exhaust.  Beautiful car ...



As to "spanking" my GTS Mike WON Fastest in the Halfmile with a time of 146mph.  I went 148mph last May (with a passenger) and 151mph in the Halfmile running alone the year before.  Not a GTS spanker  :P  Awesome car though.  Beautiful, nice wheels and an excellent sounding exhaust system.  Engine was built for E85 or race gas and has too much compression to run on pump gas though.



John Brimmer was Mike Fine's navigator and his skills got them 3rd place in the most popular class of the Rally.  Taking home 2 trophies is an excellent start to catching up to me.  I took 2 trophies twice and now twice I've received a single Shootout Challenge trophy as well.  Congratulations Mike and John.  While out in the Casinos in Vegas one of John's daughter's friends asked us if we were Twins?  don't see the resemblence  :idk:        :D  We really had a blast.  At our table (24 tables) everyone was a winner as only 1 participant didn't receive a trophy!  Pretty close to last May.   :2thumbsup:

At the Saturday Car show  Me, Tim Anglin  and Viper Jeff



The host of the TV Show Ultimate StreetCar Challenge, Jim (Hollywood) Day Holding his "Hooker's Choice Award".  He said he got second last year and wanted first this year.  Joel Highsmith won first place last May and his Superbird should be the one on the Hooker's Choice T shirts ....



Jim's girlfriend has a '69 Boss 429 Mustang that is getting built for Open Road Racing such as Jim's vette engined AMX ...



Two other TV Show hosts and their crew from Florida.  Tiresmoke.com   The car show and Rob Ferreti www.superspeeders.com  They asked me to shoot the group pic after the finish line ...   



Rob was eunning  White, Black & red driver's striped 09 ACR in the 150mph class  After we talked at the finish line they took off in their 3 cars and I hung around with Tim, John and Mike before John and I headed to Vegas in my Viper and Tim got into Mike's E85 powered Z06  back to the starting line for Mike's truck and trailer and Tim went back home.  He didn't plan to go to the Awards banquet.  When John and I did leave the finish area of the Rally to head to Ash Springs to gas (91 oct.) up we caught up to Rob.  He was coasting down the highway out of gas.  Rob coasted a mile to the gas station with me following him.  Being downhill Rob barely made the gas station at 7mph so John and I never had to stop and push!!!   Yah!

Checking the SSCC results I see that I lost to Jim Peruto by 5mph.  I beat Moore's ZR1 by 7mph and the 4th place Corvette ZR1 of Capener by 10mph. 

In the Halfmile Shootout Mike (pic above) won that event in his highly modified Z06 at 146mph followed by Steve Oyleo's Z06 at 145mph and Mark Capener driving his Mom's ZR1 at 143mph.  Only car of those I'm pretty sure is stock is Mark Capener's ZR1

The Mile Shootout winner was 185mph





As you can see the Chevelle has extensive custom body reshaping and a couple interesting items are the raised front roof edge.  The rear glass is much like a hatch now and there are a lot of subtle changes to the rear of the car.  The rear diffuser are a deep design and the trunk lid has been straightened to be like that of a old Charger.

On the way home I drove the very tight, cement walled Snake Pit in the Fraser Canyon.  There is a set of Railroad tracks on the left of the Mighty Fraser, Hwy 1 along the right edge of the river with anotherr set of Railroad tracks above the narrow highway



As I drove through Spenses Bridge the Mountin Sheeps were feeding along the side of the Highway.  I believe there was about 9 sheep in this small herd
