The winner of Class V was Kelly O'Dell in Under Pressure with a best time of 2.152, a new national record. Kelly was also the winner of Class VI, with a best time of 2.121, another new national record. Issues with staging required track workers to manually stage the racers with the old "this far to go between my hands" method, so it is unclear whether Kelly's national records will stand, but there is no question he was extremely fast and has an outstanding car this year. Congrats Kelly, looking forward to seeing what you do the rest of the season. In Class IV, Ed Block had problems shutting down and was unable to stop before crashing through a fence and then through the wall of a building past the fence. Ed was able to walk away, but his car is mostly destroyed. No word from the guys who were pressure washing the roof of the building at the time. Pictures from Ed's crash and from Classes IV, V, and VI have been posted.

September 19, 2007: The ballot for the National Mud Racers Association representative board is up at the Mud Racers Association website.

Please take a moment to vote and fill out the short survey. I received no suggestions for questions to put on the survey, so I did the best I could.

There is a link to a bio page with some personal information about the nominees who responded.

I am open to suggestions as to how long the voting should take place. I want to give the most possible people the opportunity to vote, but I also think the sooner the board gets together, the better.

I will be distributing paper ballots in Indy this weekend to help spread the word. I also believe there will be several nominees in attendance at the Stompers4X4 McLouth KS (the self-proclaimed Super Bowl of Mud Racing) race this weekend. I would encourage concerned racers to talk to the nominees and give them your ideas and opinions.

Thanks!! Brian Erne
