Thursday Night Party (6/13/2002).  Amazing that the idea of establishing a Triumph Racers e-mail list led to a party with 150 of them in attendance, including 11 from England.

Here are some of the British cars:

Here's a shot from my hotel window.  You'd think that the Baymont could keep out the riffraff working on their cars in the parking lot.

Friday was the day of carnage.  Here's a shot of George Wright's car on its lid (courtesy of Scott Tilton), the H. Tide Ebding car after its rollover.

The TR-5 from England lost its front end to the concrete wall.  They found a frame shop that would allow them to work on the car at night and stayed up all night fixing the machine.  They got the front of a TR-250 from the Nuclear Junkyard (nuclear waste and Triumphs!), and got it back together, a can of Rustoleum Regal Red finished the job.  They WON the All-Triumph race when the leading TR-7 V8 lost some of its gears.  Last picture is courtesy of Scott Tilton.

Various Paddock shots.  First shot is British iron, note TR-5 before incident above.  Then Harkness in his Vee (he's gone to the dark side), Henry Frye in what seems to be his natural position (it'll stop soon, Henry), the Brain Trust discussing something, the Slagle TR-8's, the Snook / Jackson tent (before Jackson hit the skunk), the tent across the road with Susan / Brad, Rosebud, etc. and the uncle jack homefront.
