Busy in Kalispell on the car!

It has been a real busy time here getting the race car ready for the opening race on June 6th. Many, many little things left to do to get it perfect for testing on the track later this week.

Yesterday was a big day, the car rolled outside in the sunshine and got loaded on the trailer for a short trip over to the alignment shop to set the alignment.

Always under the watchful eye of Clyde!

Not going to reveal the full car until race night...but here are some "detail" shots!

Yesterday a good part of the morning was working on the trailer and installing an 8000 pound electric winch to use to pull the car onto the trailer - it worked perfectly.

What is left to be done?

New tarp top for the trailer and Tuesday the final setting of the suspension. Check every bolt in the car for tightness. Lube the front end. Final radio installation. Final fitting of the windshield. Decals for sponsors.

This week will be busy, hope to get on the track for practicing and final suspension tuning by the end of the week.

STAY TUNED for the final unveiling next week!
