Warren Matthews Too Close to Bonneville

It's down to the wire. With three weeks 'til race day, here is where it all stands:
The motor has been ported beyond all reason and sits in the frame but has not been started yet, electrical spark is nowhere in sight but parts are on order, carb has been punched out like a cheap hooker, exhaust pipe calculations are based heavily in WAG methodology, the chassis sits strong and ready to rock, bodywork is being redone due to a MAPP gas incident, my transportation to the salt flats is currently sitting in the mall's parking lot waiting for a master cylinder to be installed, and non-refundable entrance fees have been paid.
