Everyone should take a good look at the Schedule. You will notice that there is NO TECH INSPECTION in Ely on Thursday which is the day before the Shootout. Be very concerned with your setups if this does not change. There have been very few if any rule changes so best to be prepared and get in Tech line early on Friday morning (schedule says line opens at 8 am) If I remember correctly, Steve Mott is the only and last person to sign off on your car, so doing a car every 10 to 15 minutes means 4 or 6 cars per hour is all they can handle. Since the Race Director has only one Drivers meeting for both 1/2 Mile and 1 Mile contestants at 10 am and you need to drive out there from town, you might have trouble getting to that meeting on time. (No attendance means no race). I hope this gets a re-think on SSCC's part.
