Anthony Black and Greg McGrath took turns driving their Chevrolet Silverado to bring home some QT gas cards from Bill Hilley's Mad Mouse Road Rally on Sunday, July 29th, as friends Brittany Sanchez and Amanda Crase rode along.     The crew took first place in the first half of the rally and tied for second place in the second half of the rally.

The event was an "average Joe" in which the total elapsed time for the field is divided by the number of vehicles entered to get an overall average elapsed time.     The winning team has the elapsed time closest to that average.     In this case, the two halves were scored separately with the first and second place in each half receiving QT gas cards.

The "average Joe" was concocted about twenty years ago and the first perfect score ever recorded was done so by Black and McGrath in the first half.     Another first for an "average Joe" was a tie for second in the second half as Mike and Mary Jane Halley covered the distance in their restored 1980 Fiat Abarth 131 performance rally car.

Pax Rolfe and Kayla Solon piloted their Mazda Miata to first place in the second half to prevent a sweep.

Jared Asberry and Jason Hodges toured their Ford Focus to a fine second place finish in the first half.

Jason Baney and Michael Tritt did not bring home a gas card but did agree that the route was fun to drive.

Special thanks to Dr. Bob Strattan and wife Vada who ran as official observers as Dr. Bob did the safety pre-check of the route and to Greg Maize who volunteered to capture some of the action with pics.     I can't do this without the help of Robin.

The route itself started at the Hire Call lot near 71st and Riverside.     It basically ran through south Tulsa over to Jenks and then to near Sapulpa before heading north to the Tulsa Turner Turnpike gate and the checkpoint at the QT on 49th West Avenue.

The second half then went back south towards Glenpool and Kiefer before finishing in Sapulpa at the Heart of Route 66 Museum.     Again, special thanks to the entire staff of the museum for putting up with us.

We will have one more rally this year.     It looks like it will be in the fall.     There will be a rally school on Saturday and the rally on Sunday.     The school will mostly cover SIMPLE timing, measurement and calculating.     There ARE BIG secrets to rally when it comes to calculations.     The first has to do with DIY checkpoints.     DIY stands for DO IT YOURSELF.     Once you know the secrets to a DIY, everything starts to open up as MUCH easier to understand.
