In this update: Trailer, El Mirage, and The BAJA 1000
Today’s Featured Sponsors
A small crew today consisting of Ed Shadle, Les Holm, Andrew Kirk, Omar Chramosta and Cory Mitchell at the hangar. Lars Pedersen and Eric Wittler traveled to El Mirage CA to compete in the land speed trials. Jessi Combs is in Mexico competing in the BAJA 1000 off road race. Von Armstrong was working virtual.
A little inter-service rivalry
On a really typical rainy Northwest weekend, it didn’t stop us from standing in the rain to raise the flags and support the veterans. A high percentage of the team are veterans, and every November 11th America honors its veterans. We wish to thank all the veterans in our great country for their service.
This weekend was spent working on support equipment. While new drive wheels for the overhead crane in the race car transporter are being manufactured by Eagle Machine Inc, the guys had one of the trailer parts sandblasted and powder coated a bright brand new white color. New LED lighting was installed and we are ready to go when the wheels are done.

El Mirage 2017 Land Speed Meet
Eric Wittler in tech inspection
This weekend Eric Wittler and Lars Pedersen traveled to El Mirage lakebed, just East of Palmdale CA. Eric drove his motorcycle to a speed of 185.731 mph. He was only 0.3 seconds off the record! Good job Eric. Over the winter he will work on aerodynamics to improve his speed. See photo below.
