Practice Push Starts




Before anybody did anything there was a mandatory meeting for all Cacklefest owners, drivers and crews on Thursday.


In the past the "rules" had not been strictly enforced. This year they were. All cars had to go through tech, safety (including firesuits in the pits) was stressed. During the Cacklefest there were offenses that would prevent a car from coming back in the future. All this was long overdue and this time Gibbs laid it out in a way people knew he meant it.










This year the test push starts were enforced for any new driver or a driver in a new car. And there were many vets who just got out to make sure everything was good to go Saturday night. There were several breaks in the program to allow the tests to go on.


To save time many of the tests were done coming up the push road. You can't miss the plumed helmet of George "The Stoneage Man" Hutcheson.
