Stayed with the Miller’s all week working on the 104+ Mower and getting ready for the Nationals. Set up on Friday morning with Kerry Evans having a shrimp boil on Friday evening. We had a make up race on Friday night which I won. Over 100 mowers were there with around 60 pulling tractors. There was a good crowd on Saturday night with the live web cam and TV filming going on. I finished 6th and ended up with a 5th in points for the year. Bruce and Kerry did a great job and really worked hard. I gave samples of the 104+ one shot to all of the racers to try and ask them to give us any feedback about the product. Gave many hats, keychains, stickers, and coupons out to racers and spectators. I had a little mishap on my BP Sunday and it will not take long to repair the mower. The only thing I hurt was my feelings.
Back to Chuck Miller to clean all the blowups, mowers, the truck and trailer, ride in the popcorn parade on Thursday night, and finish the 104+ Mower for the Salt Flats - I can't believe the re-challenge is next week!

Pulled the name for the “Pimped Out Mower” Giveaway and John Taylor from Flint Michigan was our winner. We will coordinate the delivery of the mower and get a PR release out to the media very soon. The promotion was a big success as we received almost 4,000 entries!
Keep your eyes open for news from the Bonneville Salt Flats!
