It should read motorsportreg.com as the place for pre-registration.     The fingers are NOT so nimble.

Mark your calendar for Sunday, July 29, 2018.     NEOKLA REGION of SCCA will present Bill Hilley's Mad Mouse Road Rally.     Entry fee is $20 per car (that's two people), with additional passengers having the entry fee of $5 per passenger.     This actually a two for one deal as the rally entry fee also gets you into the HEART of ROUTE 66 MUSEUM in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, after the rally.     We will met at 8 AM for a simple Tech and Registration at the Hire Call parking lot located at 7131 S. Riverside Parkway.     There will be a Competitor's Meeting at 8:45 AM.     The first car will leave about 9 AM.     The route will be all paved and meander its way through western Tulsa County and northeastern Creek County.     

This will be an Average Joe style of rally.     Here is how it works.     Each car will have a team.     Each team will receive a set of instructions that will get the team from the start to the finish.     Instructions could read: Left at traffic light; or Right on Yale.     Each driver may proceed at any speed UNDER the speed limits.     A rally is NOT a race, especially an Average Joe rally.     The word AVERAGE is the key.     Each team will write down on the instructions what time they start in hours, minutes and seconds.     There will be a checkpoint at the halfway point.     The team will write down the time they finish in hours, minutes and seconds.     The elapsed times for all of the entrants will be added together and then divided by the number of cars entered.     This result will be the AVERAGE elapsed time for the field.     The team that has the closest elapsed time to the AVERAGE time is the winner of the first half.     So, you do NOT want to be the fastest NOR do you want to be the slowest.     You want to be AVERAGE.     There will be a similar competition for the second half of the rally.     There will be at least prizes for first and second place for each half.

Bill Hilley is from the Jack Fork Mountain area of Oklahoma and the Hill Country of Texas.     He visited an amusement park as a kid that had The Mad Mouse as a ride.     The Mad Mouse was similar to a "fun house" ride.     You got in a car and rode the rails into a building.     Once in the building, the rails split up into many possible directions, so that you could ride The Mad Mouse many times and NOT get the same ride twice.     In a Mad Mouse section of the rally, you could come to an intersection and see other rally cars approaching from many other directions.     They may go in directions different than the way you are to go.     That's OK!!!!!     They might be on a different instruction than you are.     Do not assume that they are going the wrong way.     Just smile and wave at them!!!!!

The team of Jorge Flores and Jimmy LaMay used superb scoring to win the Second Running of the Area 51 Road Rally.   Although many teams scored well on some legs of the event, only Flores and LaMay scored single digits on every leg.   Their score of 24 points for the first four legs was impressive, but the lunch break only fueled their intensity.   They collected only 3 points in the final four legs with their '98 Subaru Impreza.   This consistency also earned the pair the Loudness of the Lams Award for the best scores on the paved legs, just edging fellow Impreza team, Spencer Stevenson and Chance Kidd, with a tie breaker.   Both teams had six points, but Flores and LaMay won two of the three paved legs, giving them the award.   Osage County maintenance crews had graveled a good portion of the second leg of the event.   The field of seven teams voted before the day started to count the leg as a gravel leg instead of a paved one.   That shortened the paved legs to three and increased the gravel legs to five.   Stevenson and Kidd eventually finished second overall with a total score of 43.

Jason Baney and Michael Tritt finished third overall in their 2002 WRX with 45 points.   Baney and Tritt were consoled by winning the Master of the Marbles Award for the team that had the best scores for the gravel legs.   This time Flores and LaMay were edged out of the award by one point, 20 - 21.

The team of Steve and Angela Schoffstall drove well over 100 miles to attend from their home in western Oklahoma.   When asked, they said the fires got within 20 miles of their home.   That's scary.   The Schoffstalls scored a fine 59 with a zero and two scores of 1 point using a 2013 Crosstrek.    Nate Pittman and Khris Pearce used a 2006 Ford Mustang to collect a mere 68 points that included a handful of single digit scores.   Kyle Shoulders and Tim Cruz were the final finishers with 124 points, but you could tell that they had a blast in their 1983 Brat which included a zero.

The team of Forrest Holt and Kortney Holt did not finish but did score a seven on leg 4 by using a time delay of 19 and a half minutes.   We will try and find out what the reason was for the DNF.

Unlike other motor sports, the weather usually doesn't cancel a rally.   Some legs may be cancelled or re-routed.   The drought has caused most creeks to dry up, so the likelihood of any legs being cancelled because of excessive rain is highly unlikely.   Robin and I will run the entire route on Saturday.   We will do a final "creek check" Sunday morning.   Any course abnormalities will be announced at the competitor's meeting.   See you Sunday morning in Skiatook!!!

The route for the AREA 51 RALLY was ran on Monday, March 25th, and approved by the National rally team of Jim Duea and John Pearsall.   Both commented about the scenic route and how it reminded them of some of the National events that they have run in Wisconsin.   Jim will be back to help work the event.

Basic measurements and possible checkpoint locations have been determined for the Second Running of the Area 51 Road Rally.   This TOUR style timed rally will cover a course of about 130 miles with about 80% of the course being paved.   
There will be two classes like last year.   The STANDARD CLASS will be for two person teams in which the driver ONLY drives and the navigator ONLY navigates.   
The TWO-DRIVER CLASS says it all.   BOTH team members get their turn behind the wheel.   Strategy will certainly come into play in this class as there are four paved legs and four unpaved legs.
There will be two specialty awards in addition to the class winner awards.   The team, regardless of class, that scores the best on the paved legs will win the LOUDNESS of the LAMS or (LOL) AWARD.   The team, regardless of class, that scores the best on the unpaved legs will win the MASTER of the MARBLES or (MOM) AWARD.
Entry fee will probably be $30 per team.   There will be a small number of workers which will FORCE a limit of twenty teams.
Just as last year, there will be cattle guards, low water crossings, washes, livestock on the roadway and their associated agricultural deposits to contend with.   
NEW this year, the checkpoints will NOT be shown in the instructions.   
INSTEAD, every timed instruction will have an official time and an official mileage.   The checkpoint location will have the same information.   There will be a false instruction inserted where the word checkpoint was inserted last year.   There will also be some additional false instructions afterward to disguise the true checkpoint location.   You will not be able to go within a short distance from a known checkpoint and wait for your time to leave.   Each team must now rally each leg as if every timed instruction is a potential checkpoint.
Feel free to ask any questions about this event.   I will answer them the best I can without destroying the integrity of the rally.

The team of Jeff Maize, Michael Tritt and Jason Baney accepted the challenge of the Eagle Eye Road Rally on Saturday, February 3rd.    The three were instructed in a 100.5 rally school (not quite 101) earlier in the day.   They learned their lessons well and reported no problems other than an odometer that was "way off" due to non-stock wheels and tires.  The short course took just over an hour to run and challenged them to locate all of the stop signs, traffic lights and yield signs along the route.   Each sign was given a point amount.   The team simply totaled those to get a partial total for signage.   It was partial because they also had to total the number of feet of the overhead clearance signs along the route.   The signage total and the clearance total were added together for the "observance" total.    The other part of the score was the measuring of the course.   Despite the odometer error, the team guessed within a half of a mile of the actual distance measured by the rallymaster.   The event was close enough to Valentine's Day that the prizes were a choice of various chocolate treats.

The next event will be the second running of THE AREA 51 RALLY.   This event is unique as it has two classes.   One class will have the standard driver/navigator set up where the driver only drives and the navigator only navigates.   The other class offers the possibility of the two team members "swapping seats".   There will be four paved legs and four unpaved or mixed surface legs it appears at this time.   The paved legs will have a special prize for the team, regardless of class, that scores the best on them.   This prize will be the Loudness Of the Lams (LOL) prize.   The unpaved or mixed legs will also have a special prize for the team, regardless of class, that scores the best on them.   This prize will be the Master Of the Marbles (MOM) prize.   The date for THE AREA 51 RALLY will be announced in the next few days.   The start and finish will be in the Skiatook area.
