USFRA World of Speed Sept 7-12 is CANCELLED!!

"Today, Saturday the 20th, Monte and myself went out to assess the
chances that the USFRA World of Speed will happen. After checking the
water level at the end of the access road and finding it was 8 inches
deep, we walked out to what would be the starting line of the courses
and found the water level at that point to be 3 inches. We then
checked the condition of the salt on the courses. There were potholes
all over the courses that will be hard to groom out. after the water
is gone. Later we went up on the mountain by the antenna towers to get
a look at how much of the salt flats and the courses were covered with
water. The water is from the freeway all the way to the 6th or 7th
mile on the course then sweeps to the northeast corner of the salt
flats in length and in width from the Saldero dike on the east to about
1/2 mile west of the end of the access road and then tapers to about
the width if the courses as it goes north. With how slow the water is
receding and the number of days we feel it would take to prepare a
good and safe course it is with heavy hearts The USFRA has elected to
cancel the 2022 World of Speed. Thanks to everyone that had hoped we
could have a World of Speed, but we all know that Mother Nature is in
charge, see you next year."


SCTA-BNI World Finals Sept 27-30 is next...I give it a 50/50 chance.

World Finals are cancelled per SCTA-BNI F/B page.

That's a wash (pun intended) for the entire season.

Just in case you still need a Landspeed fix.

Two way FIA sanction record 148.308 mph.

At Edwards Air Force Base (Muroc) in 2009.

Not sure how they got approved for Muroc.

The SCTA-BNI still cant run there after 911.

The damaged caused by everybody driving home is the worst.

Deep impressions left from tire tracks and lots of big potholes.

Talked to Pat McDowell (SCTA Prez) and Bill Lattin (VP) at a swap meet on Sat.

When I said, "Too bad about the Salt" they both replied in unison, "What Salt!!"

A friend across town was planning to take the Salty Sergeant Major this season, but it was called off. Next run will be an initial trial and shakedown to take the car -- a 1970 Monte Carlo -- to over 200 mph. The car is a tribute to the USMC and was built by SgtMaj Rod Beach, USMC (retired). It's a beautiful build. The goal is to win its class in two or three years - 240 mph should do it.

1966 Corvair Corsa convertible
Same car I bought in 1/68 the night before I went to Viet Nam he second time. Got it back in 8/15. Very near concours perfect.
