Mardy and Neil Dunn were a great addition to the MMRA team in 2007.
Their contribution to our program was so important that they earned the
highest honor in MMRA - the David Daniels Award of Excellence. They
weren't able to attend the banquet to receive their award however because
they were back home in North Carolina hard at work on the tech cart shown
below. After 400 hours, MMRA now has a professional outfit for our
Touring and Grand National races that will improve the speed and efficiency
of our staff at these events. By the time most racers see the tech
cart at Speedweeks it should also be decorated with MMRA decals and logos
for an even more attention getting look. THANK YOU Neil and Mardy for
this great tech cart! Here is a quick photo tour.
Here is the side view of the cart. All doors lock so the cart can
be secure overnights at multi-day events. The whole cart is
powdercoated for great looks and weather resistance.
Both sides of the cart open up, with one side designed for minicups and
the other for Baby Grands. The scale readouts are built in and there
is a nice platform for the tech officials to write down readouts.
There is also flourescent lighting for night races
Also built right into the tech cart is the radio charging dock.
There is also space for the boroscope engine inspection tool, and other tech
On one end of the tech cart is a full toolbox with all the tools
required. Also notice the electrical cord reel and paper towel rack
Here is a view of the other end of the tech cart. It houses the
generator which powers the tech area, portable lights - and for Baby Grands
there is an air compressor and retractable air hose for blowing off heads in
the tech area.
Under the tech cart is space to hold the scale ramps. The new
ramps connect together to make a single unit so the scale pads are always
The attention to detail is clear throughout the cart. Notice the
logo wheel plates.
