At what speed do they require a roll bar or roll cage??

Rick Posting:

Roll bar required at 130mph/GS1 along with fire extinguisher, 5/6pt harnesses. Cage required for Super Sport which is 145 if I recall correctly. First time ORR participants can't go beyond 125mph/GT5 and they have to do rookie school.

Excuse time:

I think my average mph is off by .001 due to the official electronic timing =D

Thanks for the congrats! I was and still am amazed on the 1st place and thank Jeff for helping making it happen!

Well we hit lots of snow, that Rick slept through going over the pass to get to Denver.

Talked with 410Fortune, and he was currently busty so lunch plans were a no go. :(


So next I talked with Jon to see if he would like to do dinner, and he and his wife were down with the funk :(


Several hundred miles into Kansas.............

A 6" wooden stake jumped up and cause a 10min on the side of the road delay.

Google'd ahead and found a tire shop to replace the blowout, and reinstall and that was only another 15min delay and we were back on the road.


The only other problem was that electric fan clutch started to make a growning sound around the Dallas area, and right before Waco I stopped and took a look at it again seeing as it was getting worse.

Made it back home fine, left there at 7am Colorado time, and arrived here at my house at 9am Texas time, and that was after helping Rick unload a few things and hopping in my car and driving another hour home.


Ok, sorry to cut it short, I'm going to bed!!!!

Totaly sucks we couldn't get together I was really looking forward to it, I'm really really really bummed.

I just hope you and Sheri are feeling a lot better, you both sounded pretty rough on the phone.
