Exclamation Saleens Take on Texas Motor Speedway - May 7th, 2011

Wanted to post this for Hatrick -

Saleen Friends - It is once again that time of year for us take on the high banks of Texas Motor Speedway participating in the Laps for Charity which benefits Speedway Charities.

The fun will take place on Saturday May 7th. This event will be a bit different than the 2 we did last year. To start with, Dallas Cars and Coffee will be taking place the same day from 8:00 A.M. to noon. Additionally there is also a car show at TMS which is 3:00 - 7:00. The show is put on by the same group which does the Christian Classic Cruiser show in NRH. These are typically well organized and judged shows. We will have a full day of Saleen fun if you are able to participate in everything!

After Cars and Coffee, we will all meet at my home in Keller at 2:00 and caravan to TMS at 2:30. I have registered us as a group so we need to have 10+ Saleen's and we should be doing our laps as a group on the track between 5:00 and 7:00. After the show and laps around TMS we will caravan to Roanoke for a group dinner.

The cost is $30 for 3 laps around the track and the car show is $15. However, if you do both it is only $40. If you want a picture of you and your car in Victory Lane the cost is $10.

TMS requirements are as follows: Drivers must be 18 years of age or older. All occupants in a car including the driver must wear a safety belt. Passengers must be 6 years of age or older. No passing. Single file only. Pace Car will set the speed limit.

Last year we had a great turn out at both Laps for Charity events. For pictures and comments from last year click on the link below.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. 817-372-7217

Adam

$30 for 3 laps is nothing!

Johnny, you are welcome here.


I am seriously considering this trip, although it is quite a hike for me.

Gary is confirmed for this event - so you can cruise up on Fri or Early Sat with him.

Awesome for me...I put the new banner on the windshield Sunday after it sat in the garage since two days after the Gullo show. Yesterday the windshield took a rock 1/4" above the second E and a 4" crack has appeared!

TWO DAYS!!!! Now I have to buy another new banner, a new windshield and get the visor strip retinted. This while I am shopping for a new clutch and two new front tires...

I may not make Dallas afterall.

Well yes I have had three banners so far. The last one being on for two days before the crack appeared. So I will be going with number 4!!!

Turns out, after talking with UPR, the Billet tensioner I got was 1 of 5 prototypes UPR made before they went into full production. The production units fit the MoSaleen pulley set up just fine!

The one I have looks afully similiar to the ThumpRRR unit, which may be why the final design was changed. Still need to mic the one I have to get the right spacers from Scott.

Meokol Scott was planning to attend the May 7th event so you should just bring the parts up here and let him install them! That way you make the event and get to have a "pro" wrench on your car for free!

Mike,

I plan to roll early Saturday and will try to be at the C&C around 10:00.
Let me know if you want to cruise up with me and Betsy. Should make decent time considering we're actually driving the car and not on a trailer?

What's with the bad luck deal? Not sure I want to roll with an 8 ball!
Is your car #13?

Here are the ones I know of so far. I will be sending out another email to see how many of the local folks are coming. I need to get a head count so I can firm up our reservation for dinner. Doesn't look like we will have any problem having 10+ cars.

Jarred
Gary & Betsy
Chris G.
Mark G.
Jason G.
Adam H. (Prob 2 cars)
Clark C.
Michael H.?

I am a strong tentative...being an eight ball and all.

Rolling up with Gary and Betsy is a good plan for me. Just need to get some accomodation plans working.

Take your time and be careful. Did you you bring the Kid?

Great pictures Chris!
Hey that bird gave me some good luck! I really liked the Lambo doors on that coupe, but I also saw an 06' speedster with curb feelers and don't forget those mudflaps??

I'll try and post some pictures this weekend so you can see that car with the feelers.
