El Mirage is one of those places that as soon as you pull onto the lakebed you know you are somewhere special. It was a beautiful, cloudless, warm morning. Got through tech without any problems and none were expected. As I didn't run the last two meets at El Mirage last year due to the fact I was broke after Bonneville.my start number was pretty high. Start positions are determined by points from the previous meet. It was near the end of the first round when I got to run. By that time the course was pretty chewed up. But I really wasn't bothered by that. My plan was to use the meet to break in the engine. As my Dad used to tell me "When you build an engine with all new parts you have to give those parts time to get to know each other". Very true words when you think about it.
