World of Speed--Sept 17, 2004

World of Speed opened today to great weather and clear skys. There was a good turnout of racers and a lot of action.

The vehicles in impound after a half day of racing were:

#479 I/Mini Pickup driven by Salt Lake City local Old School racer Jesse Winder @ 89 MPH

Buel Motorcycle M/PBF 1350 @ 151 MPH ridden by Jin Higgins of Team Elves

#203 G/FR driven by Paula Burns @154 MPH

#313 XF/BFCC driven by Dan Webster @ pretty fast

#53 Creel and Buck V4/CC @154 MPH

#7272 A/GT driven by Glen Carter @246 MPH

#56 RaceDeck F/BStr driven by Jorgen Moller @196 MPH
(Potential 200 MPH Club attempt!!)

Not Bad for an opening day that was cut short at about 4:30 PM by a stiff breeze (10-20 MPH from the west.

There was an incident early in the day involving the A/GS of Terry Nish. The car driven by Pam Curtis, suffered from a failure of an Aluminum Wheel at over 250 MPH. There were no injuries. The car became airborne after the wheel failed and suffered signifnificant damage to the bodywork. The damage may upset the aerodynamics enough that further runs at this event will not be practical.

The New car of "No Nitro Hammond" did a full flat spin and continued its run. Probably more excitement than they wanted.
