It's time for the Frank'enMotor Race!
These race plaques (by Ralph Thorne) will go to the winners! Thanks to all of our race sponsors!
Slotblog's Dokk (Philippe de Lespinay) is wearing his white tech inspector coat. Beware racers, no one will get their illegal cars past Dokk!!!!
Tech inspection is underway. John Cukras fills out a tech sheet while Bryan Warmack hopes his car passes tech.
Mike Kravitz and Pete Zimmerman are all smiles. They must have passed tech! Harley Ratto and Jeff Bigelow await their turn.
Bryan is back again? Now what?
Steve Forsyth (right) observes the proceeding. Jason Holmes and Duran Trujillo wait their turn while Barney Poynor oversees the inspection.
Looks like some worried faces at this point.
Hey, let me measure that car myself! Jonathan Forsyth seems to be enjoying the painful tech inspection process as Jeff Easterly measures his car with Pete Zimmerman and Bryan Warmack looking on.
Craig Correia now seems to be concerned about his car.
Are we about finished with tech yet?

Yellow tree topper pole came in handy to position a webcam on a race monitor. Duck tape always works for these type of applications.
Barney Poynor decorated the walls with an eery looking block wall with Frank'enMotor looking ballons.
Hey Barney, is tech finished yet?
