Wayne King is directed
to park in the wrong place and so it began.
Roger Lee was also parked
The Dearmore car lost
a blower belt and had to be pushed to the center.
The first car to get
it right was Red Greth in the Speed sport car.
A very nice way for Art
Chrisman to celebrate his 80th Birthday.
Garlits sprung a water leak from
the heads at the end of his cackle. No clue why these guys felt
compelled to use a bag of grease sweap to clean it up. Seems
to me the water would kind of go away on its own by morning.
Just a thought.
As noted in the Introduction,
tentative change for 2010 will shift the fire up for self-start
cars to Sunday Morning before eliminations. This means that on
Saturday night, only true push-start cars will be part of the
Cacklefest. This will shorten the program substantially. In addition,
all cacklecar entrants will be urged, (first time entrants will
be required) to be on the grounds Thursday morning and participate
in the various training and practice exercises that will be staged
that day. The sheer number of cars participating means that everyone
has to know exactly what to do, and when and how to do it. Everyone
enjoys the Cacklefests, no one more than us, but it's clear that
changes must be made to make the event more spectator oriented.
