Jim Curry in the latest Infinity SWB Modified class racer. Note the excellent use of a Zipper fairing and Coroplast. Jim has been steadily moving up one fairing class per year. Next year, Supermod? jimcurry-indy99.jpg (8404 bytes)
robertwood-indy99.jpg (4397 bytes) Robert Wood, leaning into a corner at the Velodrome. Robert, in conjunction with Garrie Hill is close to starting work on a new fairing/bike based on the Micro-Moby plug, and hopes to have it ready by  this year's HPRA championships.
Teresa Cheatham, taking it easy between races, Teresa is racing a Rans MWB bike this year. I'm hoping somebody will send me some pictures of the stock class racers actually moving, as I was too busy racing to take pictures at that point... teesacheatham-indy99.jpg (10821 bytes)
raystockinger-indy99.jpg (7160 bytes) Ray Stockinger's home built extra short, FWD low racer, built from, among other things, a sign post and electrical conduit. Ray has also built interesting items such as a HPV drag racer with a giant slick on the back (max speed 10MPH), and a hot-rod little red wagon. 
Kevin Berl's RWD, rear suspension low racer is made mostly from aero tubing. He says he has an all carbon fiber bike in the works... kevinberls-indy99.jpg (7576 bytes)
brucegordon-indy99.jpg (4524 bytes) Bruce Gordon on his Modified class Festina low racer. It uses a Peter Ross nosecone, as well as creatively shaped Coroplast for the body. Bruce carts his bike around in a nice little Coroplast bodied trailer.
Here's Ray Stockinger, on his front and rear steering, and front and rear offset-able ultra-SWB bike. Corners on a dime. No, Really.  E-mail Ray raystockinger2-indy99.jpg (9587 bytes)
