    We have already sourced a lunch truck vendor. Not the route i wanted to go, but it will also broaden the menu available for everyone. He will be on site from about 9am until about 4pm, and the menu will include most basics; hotdogs, burgers, tacos, tamales, sno-cones, churros. He is a local guy and they make all food fresh the day of. At this time, he is a cash only vendor so bring a few bucks.

    We were always going to make sure there was food options there, just bummed we couldn't do our big grill idea.
    I know someone who deals with food trucks who can set this up if necessary...

    I will have a card swiper so whoever needs cash can get it from me. I'll be a mobile ATM of sorts.

    Also, who is coming in Friday? We can have a little get together at some spot to have some drinks, meet, and chat before the event.

    I'll be coming in Friday evening in time for dinner. Do we have a spot setup for dinner yet ?

    Still haven't got a room yet - what is the best hotel in Bakersfield ?

    That's sort of like asking what the best thing on the menu at McDonald's is.

    I kid Bakersfield peeps. Kind of.

    I actually would like an answer to this question as well. I enjoy quality room service and speedy in room wi-fi. I can live without a concierge.

    So how exactly do you flag a race in which I spot someone a 1/4 mile ? is he already at speed at the 1/4 mark or is he starting from a dig? sounded like he was at speed. One more thing, I would have to see the math, double the hp does not equate to twice as fast, if that were the case my car would be running 6's since I was running 12's when I was bone stock and making 500 hp.

We are assuming your car should do well over 200mph in the mile with the power it has, and we just backed down to a 1/2mi., and we think that should make it close. We can meet at the dinner Friday before the race and talk about it or I'll see you at the event. It's all good fun, and seriousloy I had no intent of offending. Hopefully we can work something out as I'd really like to see the CLK run.

    He's obviously just messing around. Relax guys, who cares?

    Let's concentrate on accommodations and having fun. That's the goal.

    We could go from a dig so there wouldn't be a question of matching speeds with a large distance between us, or a slow roll say 25mph. We would have to measure from where I would start and you would start at the 1/2 mile start line. The 25 roll would be difficult to do, maybe a person standing at each other's starting spot and flagging us. I'll get the math from my friend and post it. What mph are you expecting to see at the 1/2mile with the CLK, both from a standing start and a 25 roll? We were assuming some numbers. Either way it would be fun to see what happens.

    If there is traction and no strong head winds I would guess, 168-169mph, I do low 140s in the 1/4 mile.

    No, not completely messing around, I would like to work something out with the CLK.
    And about the accommodations, The Padre is definitely the best in Bakersfield with a long history and the food is very good also. For less expensive digs as I said before The Marriott and The Doubletree are quite nice. If you want a fairly unique dining experience, the Basque restaurant called The Woolgrowers is very good (you have to like garlic). They have everything from lamb (specialty), steak, chicken and fish. It would have to be reserved on a Friday night. They serve a family style set up with large portions, pretty much all you could ever want to eat. Long tables in a banquet room is possible. I can help out with the reservations, as I know the owners, if this is a consideration.

    I got my room booked at some $#@!ty motel. Not trippen though, looks clean and updated. Has fridge and wifi which is all I need. 60$ for the suite, I can't complain. I'll be there Friday at 3pm or so.

    @Amerkin- I would like to run you.
