We're from the internet. Invading Omaha.

Postby FlatBlackIan » Mon Jun 07, 2010 6:29 am

Well we are back. finished unloading my car last night, and got some sleep. I have lots of picture on my camera, and they are uploading now. Lets make this the NANC picture thread.

Id like to start things off by throwing out a HUGE thank you to Greg, Becky, and Torry I know you all put everything into this, and regardless of what happened, I had so much fun I cant even put it into words, and I think I speak for Cale and Chris as well. This was my first event, but it most definitely wont be the last. We will be back next year, and the rally car will be prettier, faster, and better tested. It was great hanging out with the crew, I dont think I need to mention everybody, but I miss you guys already. I hope you all had a safe trip home.

Adding some last minute flare.

Image

Image

Image

Car loaded up, We got it on the trailer at 2 am, and left a little after 5 am. We spent the whole weekend tired, I wish I could have hung out more.

Image

Meeting up with Seth and Torry.

Image

Oh no traffic.

Image

Coming into Des Moines

Image

Image

Stopping for gas.

Image

Other than giant wind turbines, Iowa is boring.

Image

Cale the trucker.

Image

YAY Nebraska.

Apparently Nebraska is the home of Arbor day. I dont get it.

Image

Stupid bug on the window.

Image

We made it. It was freaking hot when we showed up on Thursday. If only we had known it was just going to get hotter.

Image

Taking over Texas Road House. We had 3 BIG booths full.

Image

Image

Image

Stace road the bull.

Image

I have more, but photobucket is being pokey.

I know lots of people have pictures, LETS SEE THEM.

And lets not forget. I LEARNED TO FLY!!!!!!

The rally car grows wings

Literally. :chuckle:

MOAR PICTURES!!

Got to the track bright and early Friday morning, and got the car unloaded.

Image

The spec racer that showed up, this thing was sweet.

Image

The early morning crew.

Image

Were we were supposed to be having the rally cross. It was more lake than field.

Image

Rental cube racing

Image

A very quick B13 SE-R race car. This car was dialed in. I rode along for a few laps, and we were moving.

Image

It was hot as the dickens out, and the black shirts were cooking all of us that much faster.

Image

Torry taking some laps in his G37. I rode with him as well, he was really pushing the limits on was that car can do.

Image

The Nissan Sport Mag B14 200SX SE-R. It was supposed to be rallycrossing, but since we couldnt on Friday, he took the car out on the track on snow tires.

Image

Michael's G sedan. This car was fast thanks partially to the massive amount of rubber he was rolling around on. The wheels are pure hotness.

Image

James' friend learning to push his Vette.

Image

A nice turbo G20

Image

Greg in the rental muckstain.

Image

Dave's beautiful Z33. Man can he drive.

Image

A Lingenfelter camaro attempting to keep up with a Z06.

Image

Pretty girl in a not so pretty car. I taught Stace how to work a stick in the rally car. She caught on really fast, I would have sworn it wasn't her first time. Torry gave her a second lesson in his G later in the weekend. :chuckle:

Image

Cale getting ready for a run at the course. Too bad he only got 1 run in before the fuel pump died. I guess thats what we get for showing up with a car thats only been running for a week. Note to self, do shakedown before going to events. We also lost the wipers, and the hazards no longer work. Time to start digging around in the wiring.

Image

Image

We got her a little muddy.

Image

Image

I dont know how the plate stayed clean.

Image

Pictures of the paddock from the stands.

Image

Image

I wish we would have brought an EZup. It was really hot

Image

A distance shot of the rally car, and Chris' focus.

Image

Cale taking a ride with Moto.

Image

Super clean S13 hatch with a KA-T. It won best in show.

Image

Cars.

Image

Image

Image

Stupid fuel door.

Image

Tshirt table.

Image

Lining up for the group pictures.

Image

I took pictures of the people taking pictures.

Image

People people people.

Image

Image

Not such a bad turn out after all.

Image

Image

Ah, I was discovered.

Image

Buwhahahaha.

Image

Heading home.

Image

Image

And finally back home again. Im not looking forward to cleaning up the shop. We made a huge mess while rushing to get the car ready for Omaha.

I know there are lots more good pictures out there people, lets see them.

At least you didn't own a 15mph bridge and make me pay $1.25 for crossing it. Bastards.

Same here, although I don't have many pics. I do have track video though that I need to edit and trim down. But I'm going out of town again on Thursday and won't be back till late Sunday night. So it might be week or so before I get my stuff up.

I have lots of videos and pictures from the event. I am currently in process of editing the pics. Will get the videos up on our youtube page and post the links here. Thanks to everyone who helped me out this weekend. I had a great time visiting with old friends and making new ones. I sure am glad to be home though. I had a good night's sleep last night, slept the entire flight from Omaha to Denver and from Denver to Phoenix. Who knew being a passenger on the track could be so exhausting?

I hit 110 in the rental car, so I'm sure the guys with fast stuff were WAY faster than that down the front stretch.

The weekend exceeded my expectations. Even though I only had a solid minute and a half of rallycross, it was still totally worth the trip. I will do all I can to make it to the next one, and I will be looking out for Nico dudes up here in the frozen north. I think we need to have a B.I.R. track day. Or some of you closer fools should come out to watch me and Ian at a rally-america event.

It was so freakin hot, I can't handle that crap. We had Pezi, DanShaz, and Faizan in our hotel room, Ian had the AC blasting through the night, it felt like it was 40 when we woke up, me, Faizan, and Ian were the only ones with blankets. And Pezi stole faizan's blanket in the middle of the night. Ill stick with that temp, anything over 80 and I start to feel like I am going to pass out. I got the vapors.
