    August 20th I will be helping out with this race,
    http://www.bitd.com/content/category/17/6/
    I will be playing checkpoint. Writing down car #'s' and times as they come through. I will be located here; 37°21'3.10"N 117° 9'6.34"W.
    My location is mile 84 of the race. It is a "Y" in the course and I need to make sure the racers make the hard left and stay on course. This location is only a flagger spot and is not a Pit location. Other than a couple of cars missing the turn and having to double back, it should be rather eventless.
    All are welcome to come watch the race and hang out for the day.
    Lemme know if anyone is interested.

    I think that's one of the races some friends of mine help out with, not sure if they are doing it this year though.

    We are heading to Utah that week :woot: .

    Have fun!

    I will most likely take off from my place around 5pm. Get to the site, set up camp. Then friday just hang out and watch the race. All I really have to do is write down car #'s and times. It will take most of the day I'm sure until the last car passes us. I will be getting more info in a week or so.

    Bump

    Because I had to focus on the car numbers and times, I wasn't able to snap pictures as they came by, but here is what I have;
    A couple of vehicles I saw in Beatty
    [​IMG]

    The gate I had to open
    [​IMG]
    My flagger point

    And after the race
    [​IMG]
    A couple of my camp

    I ended up movie my truck after the bikes, quads, and UTVs came through because I was right in the "Roost" zone.
