Has anyone done the Sliver State Classic Challenge in Nevada?

Not sure of the designations they use.

I don't think we have cool shit like that here in Bama. The local cops here will give you a free chase if you..........wait, did I say free? Sorry, maybe I meant they give out free tickets.

I was a timing judge a few years back. You get to go to a class at the speedway and get a tech inspection of the car and then you get to run 100 for the first time. It is a 90 mile run out of Ely, Nevada. Strange you have to have metal valve stem caps and they check for them... I was timing at the 60 mile marker and cars were going up to 200... after the first time they will let you advance to higher speeds. Lots more safety equipment the faster you go. You can't break out since they time you and they have aircraft and guys with radar guns so you have to stay at your assigned speed. Ely is an interesting mining town. First elevator on this side of the Mississippi in the hotel/casino.

I really think that I will do it in 2022.

The Whole experience is awesome. The day before all the cars are in town and it turns into a mini car show. Was funny that someone stole all the valve stem caps and the auto parts store had to open early so folks could do the run. I would save four extras just in case.
