Two weeks to our first short course race of the 2013 VORRA season at Prairie City and things are coming together. Toby continued cleaning up our electrical system. Crusty focused on reinforcing a couple of spots on the roll cage we’d been meaning to get to.
One month to the first race of the season and we’re in full prep mode. Crusty, Bob, Heston and Stacey did a compression and leak down test on the engine. Found low compression in No. 4. Bob is prepping it for new rings.
Crusty and I turned the first wrenches of 2013 today. Pulled the fenders. Started disassembling the front end. Mapping out what needs to happen before our first short course race in March. (Not much).
There wasn’t too much wrong with 1107 post-Prairie City so much of Saturday was spent dialing in things for the VORRA Yerington 300 on Memorial Day weekend.
Tonight is packing night as we prepare for this weekend’s racing at Prairie City. Here’s shots of our tubs for electronics, radios, food, racing suits and helmets. Also our Energizer All-In-One Battery, so I don’t drain everyone’s car batteries with the pit radio. Also the pile of stuff for cooking, shelter and a pile of miscellaneous stuff I know I’ll regret if we don’t take it.
