   Do you like to write? You could help cover the Solo Nationals for SportsCar Magazine, and it counts as your worker credit.
   The ideal situation is drivers who plan to be there for all four days of Nationals. You can cover classes on the days you do NOT run, leaving you free to focus on your competition on your run days. But anyone who wishes to apply is encouraged to do so, including drivers just there for the two days they run.
   No one should have to write up more than two classes or cover classes in more than two heats (Open and Ladies are considered one class for story purposes). The basic job is to be there when the classes are running, talk to a couple of the key players, then write a story of about 500 words (likely after you get home).
   I’m not looking for pro-level writing talent, I seek good observers -- the eyes and ears of the reporters are what is most valuable. As editor my job is to make your story look good.
   If you can be part of the crew this year, please send me a direct e-mail (rocky@spitfire4.com) telling me:
1. Your name
2. Mailing address
3. Phone numbers (home, work, cell)
4. e-mail address
5. Your class, days you run [see schedule below]
6. What days you plan to arrive/leave Lincoln
7. Any preferences for classes you'd like to cover
8. Second choice for event work assignment in case I can't use you as a writer.
   I’ll reply confirming I got your e-mail, then you’ll hear from me next after Aug. 17 when the run/work order comes out, which is when I can make the story assignments.
   Registration is open now at https://www.scca.com/events/1987148-2017-tire-rack-scca-solo-nationals -- click “Online Registration.” When you reach “Work Preference” scroll down to “Other” and write in “SportsCar Writer.”
   If you've already sent your entry and checked off some other worker preference, just let me know what you checked. I can get it changed.
   Hope to hear from you soon!

Tentative plans have been made for the NEOKLA REGION of SCCA to hold a road rally on Sunday August 13th.   It appears that it will be called " AVERAGE JOE'S ICE CREAM SOCIAL RALLY ".    The route is about 80 miles in length and is all on paved roads.   There will be four timed legs with winners for each leg winning prizes.
     The time to match in an Average Joe rally is determined by the entrants.   If ten cars run a leg, the elapsed time for each of the ten cars running that leg will be added together.   That total time is divided by the number of cars (in this case 10) to find the average elapsed time the leg.   The competitor's elapsed times are compared to the average elapsed time.   The competitor with the elapsed time that is closest to the average time is the winner of that leg.   So, you do not want to be the fastest and you do not want to be the slowest, you want to be average.
     Entry fees, meeting time and meeting place are all being discussed at this time.   The rally will start in the Tulsa area and finish in the Claremore area.
     Keep checking for updates!!!!!

The team of Jeff and Amanda Maize used seven single digit scores to win first overall at NEOKLA REGION'S AREA 51 ROAD RALLY on May Sunday, 7th.   The feat was even more impressive as the team "swapped seats" on every other leg as per the rules for those in the unlimited class.
The team of Luke and Kari Townsley won the stock class for those who preferred the traditional the driver only drives and the navigator only navigates team.
The route itself consisted of four pairs of legs and was nicknamed "the speedy spider" by the rallymaster, Garry Deaton.   The route was about 145 miles long with about 45 miles of unpaved roads.   Each leg had both paved and unpaved portions.
The rally's first timed leg called "ALL TUCKERED OUT", was 8.09 miles long and featured a low water crossing of Tucker Creek.   Team Maize made the mistake of leaving the start two minutes early.   The other teams followed the example set by the first car to leave and they trailed the Audi with their own early departures.   The team of Brian and Curtis Lambert were the least early at the timing line in their Jeep Wrangler with a score of 92.
Jason Baney and Michael Tritt in their WRX scored the first zero of the rally on the 14.14 mile "FAREWELL TO ARMS" which was a longer version of the previous leg.   The WRX team drew within three seconds of the Jeep team for the overall lead.
The following transit proved to be a disaster for the Lamberts.   A missed turn caused an extended off-course run.   The Jeep team decided to withdraw rather than skip legs and rejoin the event.  They became the only non-finisher of the rally.
The first leg after lunch was the 6.70 mile "TURKEY TROT" which was named for an encounter with the birds that the rallymaster had while setting up the course.   Team Maize scored a two which gave them the lead once and for all.  Josh Ingram and Micah Garvin managed a four and secured second overall.   They would maintain this position to the end of the rally.
The 6.31 mile "SECOND HELPING" offered the rallyists another short leg.   Team Maize scored a one for the leg's best.
That short leg was followed by the longest leg of the rally.   "LONG LOOP" featured a STEEP set of down hill hairpins in its 17.87 miles.   Mitch and Sue Russell piloted their Ford Focus to the only zero of the leg.
"MORE CURLS" was another loop of the town of Ochelata.   Ryan Ramsey and Jared Asberry had the lowest double digit score on the 14.80 mile leg and looked good doing it in their black Subaru BRZ.
The first leg after a short break was the 11.62 mile "ROLLER COASTER".   Team Townsley made the save of the rally by using a time allowance when their Volkswagen Rabbit ran low on fuel.   Todd and Leslie Swain joined the "zero club" in their Honda Civic to share the leg's best score with two other teams.
"TYNER CREEK" was the last and shortest leg of the rally at 5.76 miles.   The team of Baney and Tritt produced their fourth zero of the day for the best score on the leg.
The finishing teams expressed their gratitude to workers Bob and Vada Strattan, George Walker and Robin Deaton as well as pre-checkers George Walker, Jim Duea and John Pearsall.   It was agreed that another rally should be presented by NEOKLA REGION in 2017.

Jeff Maize/Amanda Maize                         Audi                Unlimited          142
Josh Ingram/Micah Garvin                       Subaru             Unlimited          161
Jason Baney/Michael Tritt                        Subaru             Unlimited          166
Luke Townsley/Kari Townsley                  VW                   Stock               244

I ran the route that was the MOST at risk and I couldn't believe how well the gravel roads had drained.   Highway 20 may be flooded, but some of the AREA 51 gravel sections were in OPTIMUM condition.   I ran some parts in the Escort as if I was a bit behind.   (The official speed to run most of the gravel sections during the event is 34.)   I ran 40-50 in places and it was a BLAST.   Yes, there were slow sections where they had dumped some gravel for last week's rains, but for the most part, the roads were ready to run the event TODAY.

I will be going out Thursday to check the "low" spots, but I don't expect to see much to be concerned about ON the rally route.   Robin and I will do a final pre-check early-early Saturday morning and report any abnormalities at one of the competitor's meetings****.

****Since this will be an event with entrants with little or no rally experience, there will be short competitor's meetings at each break.   There is MUCH to be learned and if I tell it all at the morning meeting, MOST will be forgotten when it comes time to use the knowledge to your advantage.   So, I will ONLY talk about the route that we are about to rally.

The morning meeting will cover the tire warm up, the paved and unpaved odo runs, the transit to the first break and driver "seat swapping".
