I will be camping also and will drive home on Sunday. I drive a Tundra extracab. We can fit four people and three scooters or two scooters and two mopeds but I don't think any mopeds will be going. Could hook up someones trailer for more as well. Maybe that with JJ's Element. Our PDX head count being Amil, Paddy, JJ, me and .....
I will be borrowing a trailer, towing it with the element saturday night adn camping. I am planning to prep my red p racer out. I am just about done with the second attempt at building that thing. Also in the works is Sean R Sauls racer, we are building him up a 166 lump for it.

The heat race was also a blast, but I forgot to turn my camera on for a lap or 2, and then my fly-side main bearing gave up - you'll see that at 3:56:
Now who doesn't love some carnage? Here ya go:
Yep, barrel damage - gotta get it relined.
Mmmmm. Powdered bearing everywhere! Delicious.
Oh - hey there's some bearings... wait... huh? Oh - no these just used to play bearings on television.
These guys were still pretending to be bearings, but they just couldn't fit in.
Here's the crank where some of those bearings used to live. This crank is gonna have to go live somewhere else now too.
Culprit? I told myself after doing some reading that this sealed ceramic bearing that was rated to 16,000 rpms was probably a little overkill for this motor. I think the motor won. Sorta... In a way that I'm not so excited about.

Ouch Patrick. That made my stomach turn. Now we need to see the inside of Dayns engine. Had. It read this thread for a while. I was 4th in this race as well as the other West Coast challenge race at Mac track. I guess that puts me in #2 position behind mr golden due to dnf's for all y'all :-) or maybe Garrett and I are tied, can't remember how he did at Mac
