Wendy Adaska comes down the front straightaway during her 3-lap individual time trial, while Steve Houck waits for his turn and Rick Gritters shows what happens when you wear your helmet too tight... <g>
Wendy Adaska crosses the finish line on her 3-lap individual time trial Saturday, while Garrie Hill reads his stopwatch and various spectators and racers look on.
Wendy can't bear to watch the start of Saturday's combined Stock/SuperStock/Junior 10-lap Short Course race. From left to right, racers are Rick Gritters, Dave Balfour, Steve Houck, Jeff Hunn, Ray 
Brick, Jim Curry, Bryan Ketterhenry, and Ben Gordon.
Dave Balfour leads Ben Gordon, Rick Gritters, and Jeff Hunn around the challenging corners of the Short Course 10-lap race.
Jim Curry rounds a corner in his Infinity FWD during 
Saturday's 10-lap Short Course race.
Jeff Hunn leads Rick Gritters and Ray Brick around a corner during Saturday's 10-lap Short Course race, while HPRA co-dictator Don Barry watches and prepares to flip the lap counter. 
Dave Balfour cuts inside Steve Katterhenry to set up for a hard left corner in the 10-lap Short Course race.
Women racers and Trike class racers wait for the start of their combined 10-lap Short Course race on Saturday. From left to right, racers are Wendy Adaska, Kathy Eagen, Aaron Ehglert, Jane Hunn, 
Dave Balfour, Patrick Grant, Steve Katterhenry, Mike Kring, and Rich Myers. 
Jane Hunn leads Wendy Adaska around one of two extremely sharp hairpin corners in the 10-lap Short Course race. Wendy eventually took the lead for a lap or so, only to have Jane come on strong at the 
end and cross the line a foot or so in front of her. However, because Jane's transponder was on her rear QR (her monoblade front fork makes it difficult to mount there), Wendy's front QR - mounted transponder crossed the line ahead of Jane's transponder, so Wendy was awarded the victory. 
Sunday dawned clear, sunny, and beautiful, although it took a bit for the track to dry from the puddles left by Saturday's rains.
John Simon in the Moby streamliner (held by Thom Ollinger) and Richard Myers (held by Rick Gritters) prepare for the finals of the 1-lap Drag Race.
John Simon in the Moby streamliner barely edges out Mike Mowatt in his partially-faired upright road bike in the 1-lap Drag Race.

custom tandem.

John Simon (in the Moby), Doc Pearson, and Rich Myers wait for the start of the Streamliner Last Man Out race. Rich retired his high-mileage homebuilt streamliner MuleE after Saturday's race, so he 
raced an unfaired Baron in Sunday's races. We are all eager to see what new vehicle Rich comes up with for next season.
Jeff and Jane Hunn (left, on their Thom Ollinger - built custom lowracer tandem) wait with Joe Brooks and Tess Machlan for the start of the Multirider class Last Riders Out race on Sunday.
