Wagsdash day

The race day starts for Wagtimers getting prepared. The EZ-UPS go up and were on the way.

The tables needed covering, so what color shall we use?

Here's to ya!

Rodney Argo rolled it over in hot laps, but came back to get 11th in the main event.

Garrett Hansen took the former Mike Kirby car to 5th in the main.

Doug allen tried to sneak by me. Doug's marvelous work graces a lot of walls of our fans.

The Damion Gardner entry did not do well this week. When he got "officialed" in the pits during the main, he and his crew went off, except for Bruce bromme Jr, who walked away to play another day. This put the dmeon 41 points behind in the championship race.

The crew works hard on the little red sucker.

Aaarrrgh, is that a pirate me mates?

Where's Amy? There she is. She added to the purse this week, even though she is a diehard Damion fan.

Ragine and her husband gave us a blanket to auction off and a winners scarf.

Aarrgh, here he is again.

Look at this graphic!

The annual autographed helmet, this one retrieved by Lee Ann Normoyhle, went for $325.

Here's the winner with Wags and Chris. Kevin something, my memory, you know, he said it twice.

J Hicks had a flat tire and while his crew was trying to change it, the tow truck driver took a signal from "someone" and started pulling them away amid screams to stop. Nevertheless, this kept them from being ready on the 3 laps to go, and they were out and hot! The steering box was broken, so after the fact, they wouldn't have made it back in anyway.

Ludwig Solberg IV started on the pole of the Wagsdash and ended up in the infield with his muffler on Ronnie Case's car after a spin.

Matt Stewart ready to go in the Wagsdash.

Does this car look familiar? It's Dennis rodriguez new ride. Still has Harlan Willis name on the side?

Now Mark & Steve Alexander get in the picture.

After the race, loading up is always a challenge. Without all the chili fixins, it was a lot easier.

The fuzzy trio of Kim,Krista and Korie.

Tom of Thunderhead and his wife smile big after the night is over.

Chris Holt's job is done. He can go home now!

Breakfast came early the next morning at 8:30 and many were not impressed. Only four went home without eating, so the 25 or so that ate with us was amazing. They all had something to say about the weekend and all of it was positive. The group likes to do this and in fact missed the cooking of the chili, so we will return to doing that and say thanks to La Villa for bailing us out this year. The sometimes emotional outbursts included their love for each other as a group, their desire to keep working together, and they want to do a couple of other get togethers to relax and enjoy themselves. They all profess to like this Wagtimes thing and the tradition is strong and staying focused. I was very glad to hear their speeches and we know we will keep on doing it in the future together. Here comes the 17th annual Wagsdash!
