Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

Mike Taylor saved the K-car from burning in a Wyoming ditch. RichVS and I were ready and eager to do it. So blame him/give him the credit for saving that horrible car.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

I'm just sayin' I'd rather see it make ALL of the events, even if it means chipping in some dough so the "impossible/improbable to drive it there in time" can become, "The trucker just dropped it off outside the gate; now it's time to get to work"

Somewhere east of Idaho, as I understand it. The states start to get smaller back there, so it can't be all that far.

Edit: Come to think of it, it would only add about 1000 miles to the trip to drive it from CT to Seaside, CA, for the Concours d'Lemons before driving it to The Ridge. That is interesting.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

Holy crap, I would love to do The Ridge.

Also, since it seems as though all the races near me are spoken for, I will gladly volunteer to redecorate the Nash for anyone who wants my impeccable decorating skillz. I mean, I went to the same college as the Fixer Upper couple. I made a Type 3 into a bunny. I know polishing turds. And I think this Nash kinda looks like a bunny.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

Just wondering if all the teams use the 327 powertrain? The reason I ask is because I have grease monkey friends who have some good blocks laying around (decade correct). If they can use any SB Chevy, period correct, I might be able to donate a good block to the team when I come to Barber.

Let me know.

EVR Bob convinced me. There's something terribly wrong with Lemons racers named Bob. We want to take it for the MSR race in November. After only 2 laps with the K-car there's nowhere to go but up, right?

Oh, Jibberst Farging Krabst.  This means there is a good chance this abomination will be drizzling its humors in Tetanus's paddock space, as well.

I spent nearly 24 hours walking into the K at the 2013 MSR race, wondering if the stupid thing would EVER get on track.  What wasn't wrong with the K at that race?

Yes but then the free entry to the Chihuahua came up. Which is at the same time. Never heard a decision either way.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

It looks like we're going to need some help getting it from Texas toward st Louis.

Justin h was not part of the program.  I'm not sure how I got that wrong.

Are any of the Basturds from OK?

Realistically I think we have a solution for ECR to Gingerman after a few emails but I just found out there is no confirmed relay from AZ to Dallas...at least not that the Dallas host knows about.  Folks, lets nut up and get it there.  I need to make flight arrangements this week if I am going to help with the stupid/awesome plan and do the Dallas to Chicago run.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

Just in case you didn't get the message Doug, White Trash Racing  would like the Nash for the 10th anniversary race at Gingerman in October.

That's cost prohibitive for everyone involved given I'm in SF and now not going to be able to attend the AZ race.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

The AZ>Dallas and Dallas to St. Louis transit stages are the most immediate challenges in the master plan.

Down the line we may have a problem with CMP. It's looking like we may need a new race sponsor and transit solution post race to PA for NJMP. Real life gets in the way sometimes and sometimes we make sober decisions. It's still evolving and I'll let everyone know when I know what we need.

Re: Nash it Forward - 2016 schedule

We're looking for a host for the Nash after Barber. Ideally someone drives/tows it to their lair in the deep south nearby a major airport hub w/ a bar and authentic 'Murican food. Sasha and crew will fly down later, fix things, and then drive it to AZ.

It should be street legal, so assuming it runs after Barber this could be a really easy contribution to the Nash it Forward project.

Last I heard OnkelUdo was looking to fly into Dallas and drive the Nash to PA. I believe he was going to make a decision on that this week. Knowing for sure that the Nash would be in Texas would certainly help in the decision.
