It all started at 7:15 am with the first Big Gun cars leaving downtown Parker and getting out here at Shea Road about 7:30 am. It wasn’t even light yet so they had to use their headlights.
I could fill up the page with photos of the cars, but you get the idea.
Our little spot here got filled up around us with weekenders. The young folks in the foreground thought playing loud “bass” was music, until all of our guys stood on the ridge and did a “stare down”….all of a sudden the music got lowered! Then those folks on the ridge to the right brought an industrial sized generator and put a car to their side so the noise all drifted our way. They didn’t shut the generator till after midnight. No one taught them the courtesy hours of a generator I guess! But it was only for two nights and they were all gone this morning.
We had our daily happy hour-that’s Jim Mossman with Walker in his favorite spot, with Nancy and Tom Doyle in the background.
But then it started to rain, so we huddled under the Geno’s awning.
The race is 425 miles on a 120 mile loop run 3 times. Some of the racers drove into the night. But we did have a wonderful rainbow after a little rain. Isn’t that fantastic?
Tomorrow we drive to Lake Havasu in preparation for the Winter Blast. More about that next time.
Remember, you are loved.
