A Deal is a Deal (Rookies Better Stock Up On Snickers & Mountain Dew)

Berry Lowman ·
They say when one door opens, another one closes. Well, in this case, said previous door may have been left slightly ajar. At least for the moment. Two good ol' Corvette racing boys from the hills of Kentucky made a deal several years ago. Go out to Nevada, enter the Silver State Classic, get straight up to 150 Class, and throw everything at it until they score a win. The deal was, then, and only then, would a driver/navigator seat swap take place. You know, Father and Son, racing toward a...

I hope you do good as a first time driver at the SSCC. It is a real blast to win including doing it twice in a row racing some of the best in the 150 mph class. Proud that you are my son whether you win or loose, don't give up ����

I thought you sold the rights to Snickers and Mountain Dew to Malcolm Johnson at the last awards ceremony? I applaud tenacity. See you in September. I am taking my time to get to 150.

I'll be racing until the day I die, or can't see the finish line anymore, whichever comes first!

I sure hope he held onto them to consume on the 3rd Sunday of September on pre-grid in Lund! Speaking of, it's not a bad time for Malcolm to step up and take a shot at 150...

That was a wise marketing move. I am sure Malcolm and his stopwatch will do well and that will open the demand for mojo'ed sets of Snickers and Mountain Dew. Maybe even branch into Rockin Nut Road Snickers and throw-back Mountain Dew.

Berry, Moving from the 'Shot Gun seat' to the left seat is going to be a different experience. I am absolutely sure that you will do well. In 2008 when all four of us camped in the sun in the 110 mph division from 8:00 am to 2:30 or so waiting as rookies for the course to open was an adventure by its' self. There were a lot more of the grumpier first timer's than the four of us. Turns out that it was my "Lucky" day as I blew / melted the hydraulic clutch line following 4 others @ 125+ back...

Good for you Berry, remember to respect your Nav. I know you will do good, but most of all have a good time and be safe.

Berry good luck to you in your attempt, will see all of you soon. in Vegas at rookie school, or tech at Sam's Town, the caravan up to Ely , or in Ely at tech, the shootout, or during the car show. We used to have medals for all finishers guess it got too expensive. Have fun all and please be careful !!! O

Oh BTW try this figure out a sound track to play . pick the tunes carefully set them up so that the tuneage matches the section your in with the music of your choice and the time for your class. but this is just a suggestion. ha ha O

Berry I thought about (for less than second) changing the car back to go that slow but it would be toooo much work! And I think you know faster is better anyway. I was a rookie in May 2011 and ran the 110 class there is a time for you to shoot for. But I should think that would not even be a challenge for you with all the time you have on 318. Good Luck Dave

Berry Bobby. That's a good one Gary. Will be working the starting line for the Corvette Club, but may need to bail into the Nav seat if Berry doesn't bring someone with him. :-)

Several posts back you had some good advice from Dave Bauer, it was respect your navigator. Imagine how embarrassing it would be for the participants behind you to observe you being disciplined alongside the highway.

Well, I did recently purchase some bottles of the all new Mountain Dew "Dew-Shine" with the classic hillbilly logo on them, so maybe I'll swig some of that as well up in Ely this time for good measure!

There will be plenty of time for tunes cruising from Ash Springs back to Vegas.

I plan to take it as easy on my navigator as my Dad always has on me (or maybe a bit easier, as a non-relative may actually dive out of the car mid-race ... ) LOL

If you'd ever heard some of the unedited audio clips from our in car comms, you'd know that I'm no stranger to being disciplined all the way down 318. But seriously, no matter who my Nav is, they will get nothing but respect, including some intense lessons...

Still good advice Dad would be a great choice for Nav, but he's not quite done driving just yet, so I knew that I'd need to recruit/train someone to be my co-dawg moving forward. I've already been training a good friend for next season, and he's taken to the quick math like a duck to water, but he can't make this SSCC due to his work schedule. My backup had to cancel due to sudden money concerns, and my backup backup just...

Not only are you still .0004 better on the record books, but without your driving prowess, we'd not have those awesome BBORR 145 trophies! I'll gladly share my Snickers & Mountain Dew stash with you anytime!

I do want to run 150 with the big boys down the road. BUT, I don't like the fact that us old dinosaur stop watch guys have to compete with the computer jockeys with no distinction in class. I used to frequently beat the computer jockeys with my $39 investment grade stopwatch. But many of them have evolved to the practically unbeatable level. I know I could take the plunge too but I personally don't get as much satisfaction as using my own 62 year processor to do the math, make speed...

I'm in for the S&MD toast!! ���� Oh yes, I know a lot about the dual gps, dual processor, IMUs, and systems tied into cruise control that guys like Mike Black and Mike Hill run in Texas. I've competed with them for years and we've probably split the head to head races. I'm getting close to deciding to move up this race to 150 solo as several other Old Farts are gonna run 145. Monk as navigator? Sounds good to me. I've been known to tape my navigators mouth shut for the race cause I...

well I guess that keeps him from blowing out his eardrums inside his helmet at 150. but even then when moving that fast no one can hear you screaming in your helmet anyway.
