Came home, went out to garage to get Sapphire GTS ready for May 15 - 18th Nevada Open Road Challenge/NORC.  After restoring antitheft devices ...  vroom vroom!  She's ready to go!  Don't even need to change the oil since I did an oil change just before parking GTS for winter.  I booked a room in Ely, Nv and that was also easy.  Unfortunately, my premiere navigator declined attending this event so I sent a couple invitations looking for a navigator. 

I sent Sean Roe a copy of my new/improved Vec tune so he can add the w/m injection back into the beast.  Last fall I was 5mph slower than the race only 800whp Unlimited Class Chevelle of record holder Jim Peruto.  One of the modded ZR1s was only about 5mph slower than me and the other ZR1 was about 8mph slower.  I'm thinking that adding 50 - 70whp to my beast again will get me a fastest in the mile and hope that I can come close to 190mph, which would indicate that my Roe supercharged GTS would go 200mph at an altitude of 2500' without using Nitrous Oxide.  Although there are solenoids wired into my car and there is a fuel pump and fuel lines in my garage to finish the Nitrous install ... I like having a couple hundred hp in reserve ... just in case I want of feel the "need" for it.  The SSCC rules don't allow for a Nitrous system in any of their events and Nitrous would only be useful in the half and mile shootouts.  Nitrous power delivery is usually explosive and at SSCC the name of the game is to have fun, but not risk much so safety rules forbid Nitrous Oxide. 

Since my GTS is ready to go, I'll have to figure out some sort of comfort or improvement to do to the car since that's what I do. 

Doug Seal (owner Willowbrook Chrysler) has already bought his rooms and paid his entry fees.  Doug and Brent Seal won 1st in the 110mph class last spring.  I expect that Doug will be driving his Black (red driver's stripe) 2009 ACR that is his favourite.

I'm waiting for 2 Vipers from Washington state to answer if they can work life and work into a schedule that would allow them to compete in the NORC.  Another couple from Oregon would like to run their new SSG ACR in the event as well.

Drew will be out here today at Miller MotorSports Park with his Viper.  Saturday I hope to go watch him run.  I just don't know what his schedule is

No navigator so I missed this event.  Planned to go to VOA event in Kelowna but couldn't find a room at the last minute so got to stay home while it was raining the entire weekend.  Damn! 

My "Bakersfield Buddies" Mike Fine (left), John Brimmer (right) and his daughter between on their way to the Awards Banquet!  They ended running 4th fastest in the Mile and about 10th in the 150mph class.  They had a lot of fun and sent me the pic to tease me. 

One of my other friends, Joel Highsmith with the 1000whp blown Challenger had his car recovered after being stolen, stripped, found in California at a chop shop and he spent some winter and spring getting his Hemi back together.  Unfortunately, at the last second, the car still wasn't ready for racing and Joel went racing in his GMC 1 ton.  Even with serious problems he made the race and ran the event.  This way he can run his car in the Standing Mile and the roll bar (except supercars which have built in roll bars) required 130 - 150mph classes.  160 and faster require race cars to run.
