Default "Live" from Indy US Nationals 2011

Well we are almost there. We stopped for diesel, to dump the motorhome, and we are now at the Skillman's Ford dealership filling up with water for the week. We are in Greenwood now, so we should be there shortly. I will let you know what # we are when we get there. I received a text from Paula Cotten and they are #128 and got there around 7 pm. Does anyone remember how many got parked on Monday last year? I know not everyone who arrived on Sunday got in on Monday.

More later.

Oh, thanks to Bill, Ray and Drew for helping us with water tonight.

We're here! We're here! Arrived at 1:40 am and we are #207. We are in a field that is to the left when you come in the Main Gate. The other field looked full in the dark and this one almost is full. More tomorrow. Oh, they said to be sure and put up your stack if you are going to run your generator. The temperature seems nice, but we are putting the stack up anyway.

Bill Skillman will have a new engine for his stocker from Ford this afternoon. Only minor work that has to be done on the new engine, change cams [ I bet degreeing four cams all at once is a challenge ], blower, fuel system, ignition, water pump, install, and then to the chassis dyno. "Piece of Cake"

I hope he puts wheelie bars on the car so Stacey won't have to kill him.

"Bill Skillman will have a new engine for his stocker from Ford this afternoon."

Is this covered by warranty? lol

They parked 200 rigs last year on Monday, and I was # 201, which got me an early morning wake up call Tuesday. I think we got there around 10:00 P.M. that Sunday night after leaving Bowling Green.

They started moving in rigs sometime after 9. They are taking 6 at a time. I doubt if we get in today. I just saw Al Provoast and Al Corda. Corda said nobody had taken him up on the B/SA Gamblers race yet!

Well I am going to fix breakfast now. More later.
