They don't normally let you on the salt this early, but this day was early to witness "sunrise on the salt", an event that according to some, is a "near religious experience"! The sunrise did not disappoint!
The BMW pits.
Leah and Laurence Kuykendal of BMW North America
The salt was wet and sticky!
.....and we get more rain.
Whiteout! You can get lost out here and get yourself in trouble! There is a porta potty every 200 yards leading you to the "pits" for the event. Normally they don't let you on in the morning until you can see 3 porta potty's. That is to keep you from getting lost....it's a BIG place!
Looks like a lonely spot!
The "PITS" in the distance.

Getting wisdom from Laurence.
Planning and scheming! Andy playing pool, his girlfriend/wife? in pink, motor/turbo guys in red, white, black shirts.
Hanging out with "Bub" Manning at night.
