    I'll leave you guys with a question that I'll answer next week. We all know Rick Shanholtzer builds the motors for Miss A and has since Brent started flying her. Just how many allison rod V-12 merlin engines has team Miss America raced during that time?

    1) Never
    2) One
    3) Two
    4) Four
    I know they had an Allison Rod motor in 2002 (and 2001 even though I'm sure you aren't counting that year). I have heard conflicting things about whether or not they had one last year.

    Thanks buddy... camera is working out better than perfect. In hind sight your correct, the faster lens would have been nice. Sorry I haven't been able to respond to all your comments Wayne... Kim's situation has gotten more tenuous as of late, and I've needed to step things up to meet the challenges. What free time I had is tuff to come by now, just trying to find time to respond here meant typing this on my phone while having a smoke break getting ready for work. I will say this is something I've needed - the last year has all been about Kim & hospital visits... First time I have been able to focus on anything besides that in a very long time.

    Mark, initially, I was reluctant to task you with this project.. when we discussed it on the phone, you seemed interested enough to go forward. I only know the task you are going through from the patient side of things. My affliction was not near as far advanced as Kim's. But, I do know what the dedication of my caregiver Linda and her mom and what it put them through.

    You gotta know everyone here is pulling for you guys!

    Love you buddy!

    PS. I'm going to send you specs on the lens, if it's a lot faster, won't cost much to overnight it to you.. Want you to have the best for the upcoming tasks!

    Thanks to all you guys for your interest! We are extremely lucky to have such an expert journalist on the job there! Mark Kallio has more knowledge about the sport in his little finger than most of us have in our entire brain! This has worked out really well! The owner/crew totally accept Mark as one of them. This whole thing just warms my heart!

    An air racer's hangar has all the cool stuff!

    Then sitting just to the right.... there was something that didn't pop-out as special, but when I found out air racers they came off of, I was - whoa! It's like a shrine to air racers past.

    Thanks Mike - will certainly pass on the message to Kim. You know, I haven't been called the snack master for a long time - brought back some good memories. Also good to see your still hanging around, hoping life's been good for ya & all... It's been a long time.
