As always, on Thursday afternoon
there was a mandatory meeting for all cacklecar owners, drivers
Steve Gibbs, along with Greg
Sharp and Larry Fisher went over the game plan for this years
Cacklefest, especially for the first timers. Unfortunately, once
again, there were those who slept through the class and made
dumb mistakes anyway.
This was also a great time for
guys like Dan Kaplan to get candid shots of some of the players.
Harry Burkholder and
Bill Pitts and Sonny
Roger Lee and Rich Guasco
Sharp explaining the virtues
of an in-n-out box for the cacklecars. This model comes from
the Hampshire Bros.
Trevor Larkin, John Paxson and Bob DeBurn
Peter Broadribb signing the larger
than life Frank Baney.... a joke among friends. Frank missed
CHRR due to family deal...and the guys still wanted his "presence".
Joe Schubeck and Don
Again this year the test push
starts were enforced for any new driver or a driver in a new
car. Then there were many vets who just got out to make sure
everything was good to go for Saturday night. There were more
than several breaks in the program (4.5 hours of track clean
up) to allow the tests to go on. For the names of who were in
the cars see the Parade Page.
To get more tests in most were
done going up the push road. Several cars got a jump on things
doing their tests on Thursday.
The remainder of the
shots are from Friday and Saturday.
