Kent, I agree, probably why they changed to Speedchannel. Anyway, I think the event is fine the way it is. For those who seek it shall find it. We don't need to see the Mountain Dew crew at the starting line filming a commercial. I was just surprised they mentioned it.

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 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.

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.

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!

Tom - Having you in the 155 will be awesome! I always say, the greater the talent in the class, the sweeter the thrill of victory will be to whomever stands atop the podium! Plus, who doesn't want a shot at a FREE case of Mountain Dew?!? #DoTheDew Funny enough, marketing & promotion is what I do. That said, these days, I only agree to pitch things I know I like, so if the Compumaster 3000R needs a spokesperson, I'd love to give it a whirl sometime to see how it fares! Dave - Join us in...

Before my navigator ( yes I know I let him drive last September, he won his class and I have created a monster) gets too carried away with the challenges, as Dave said, I am the Driver and the only challenge from the 466 car will be for everyone to have a safe and enjoyable trip down 318 no matter which class you decide to run in or which "Egg Timer" or "Mountain Dew and Snickers" you decide to use. BTW, count me in for some of those Raffle Tickets for the CompuBomb, Compumaster 3000R...

well after doing this for Twenty years now missed a few here and there but this was one of the best shows I have seen in a while.

Thank you all very much! What a ride! I am in awe of my car. It could not have been better. Yes I was willing to tap some of its potential, but the car was asking me to do it. We are all very lucky to have an event like this that allows us to live our dreams in the company of great people who support and encourage us. On the eighth day God built route 318 because he looked back on the first seven and could not find something to satisfy his need for speed. The Waldmans built a Church there...

You can show up on Friday and register on-site for Power Tour and be eligible for the Faceoff event. I believe the Silver State is around Sept 13-16 and entrants in that event will be eligible for invitation to the OUSCI. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Looks like I'll need to check out getting me one of them "ringer" navigators. I haven't had time to edit all my video, let alone put it up on YouTube.

Tom, Nice video. But you need a setup like I have that puts data on the video like GPS speed, RPM, lat & long G, and throttle position. It adds a whole new dimension to the video. I'm going to attempt to put my run on a DVD tomorrow.

Haters, I've lived in Oakland, Compton, Vietnam, Nigeria, Angola, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Afghanistan. I've been beat down, stabbed and shot so that little fire was nothing. What scares me is seeing either Tom or Jim in red speedo's again at the finish line.

OK, Irish, you're on for the Jailhouse. I'll be the one wearing the red Speedos. Dawg, how could we be haters with you as our leader? You're a real firebrand, and it's only coincidence that housing prices fell in every one of the neighborhoods you mentioned after you moved in.

Steve, It's good to hear from you again. After reading your post, I think my mission is done. It's seems that polished seats are a MUST for getting ready for any ORR race. Now if I can get Tom & Mad Dawg to comply, I would be a happy man. See you all in Sept!!! Jim Marz#81(aka JimmyMack)

Re: What are you doing to get ready for September?

Anything to keep you happy, Jimmy Mack. I ordered some expensive leather conditioner from Zaino Bros and applied it a couple of days ago. Although it made no discernible difference, I was content in the knowledge that you would be pleased. After all, what are friends for? I have to say, however, that I'm not feeling the love from the Dawg man. He's probably laughing at all of us who have fallen for your contention that polishing our stupid seats will make us more competitive in ORR. Sigh.

Pretty cool promotion. Best of luck to them! It was certainly a privilege to see Big Red and the crew at the Silver State last September. Perhaps the Guiness record will fall to them..or, maybe to someone on the other end of the PR spectrum, like Jim Peruto? What a great competition!
