The Quest for 2011

It's been a long deserved break since Punkin Chunkin 2010! Although we didn't finish as well as we would have liked, we are very excited about this coming year's competition. The good news is the machine held together very well in November! No broken axles, bent arms or shredded slings. Unfortunately, we didn't have time before or during competition to dial in the complex variables involved in this "one-of-a-kind" machine. Right now, rather than spend every weekend now til November in the shop building, we will be on our motorcycle or in our RV enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountains!! We do, however, need to construct a backstop to ensure our ability to test and practice on the field without the use of a dump truck protecting the crowd. We will also add a chain guard and precise RPM gauge.

We have been invited to a county fair in the pan handle of Oklahoma in mid September, and look forward to 3 days of fine tuning Inertia II's ability to show the world what we are capable of. All of our fans are welcome to come to this event. Details will follow regarding dates, times and location. Delaware is always a fun event to look forward to, but right now our focus is on Oklahoma. We will know then if the well-coveted mile is within our reach.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or comments that you may have. Until then, have a great summer and see you in the fall!!
