Third Day on the Flats…..

and it’s kicking our butts, which is why I didn’t post yesterday. We got home yesterday afternoon about 4:30 and we were just wiped out. We grabbed a quick dinner and then crashed. Slept in till about 7:30, filled up the cooler with ice and water, and headed on out to the track.

Lots of hot rods cruising up and down the pits, just hanging out and looking at all the cars.

Our contact, John Romero from White Goose Bar racing, got us a ride with the safety crew for about an hour. We got to go out on the tracks when anything happened, and with four tracks, there was a lot happening.

Most of the time we just kinda hung out under the tents trying to stay cool. We helped out a bit when we could. We helped out at the starting line for one run, Cameron was the official umbrella holder ; ), keeping the driver cool while he was waiting his turn to make a run.

Here the car’s on the trailer, coming back from it’s run.

This has been a hectic three days on the salt flats, and we’re pretty whipped. We’re talking about leaving tomorrow, a day early. We’ll see how we feel in the morning.
