Re: how to get started

Racing takes $ and dedicatoin. Either win the lottery or get involved. Best way to start is get involved with a team. Learn everything you can, meet people, etc. Look around for a used truck / buggy and be one of the many 'little guys'. This is how I started - now I have a truck, am building an other, am involved with several teams. Nice thing about desert racing is big $ does not equal automaitc wins. Yes, sponsors help but everyone I know was 'self sponsered' at the begining. Good places to whach are VORRA in N CA, MDR (, MORE, FUD in S CA, BITD in NV, SCORE, CODE in Mexico.
