better weekend

That rear end stayed together with the new spool. Two 1st places, two fastest passes, and a fastest reaction time.
No rollovers or wrecks, what more could a guy ask for?
I hope things went as well for you other guys who raced this weekend.

Re: better weekend

<font color=purple>Couldn't even get motivated to put a simple starter on mine. Spent the morning of the race cutting grass. Probably would have done real well (taken 1st the last two times at this event), but am kind of glad I left the truck at home. Multiple delays - some too ridiculous to believe - led to a 13.75 hour event[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]. Only a few weeks ago, we had a 9-hour race & all agreed that was entirely too long. If only we'd known that wouldn't be the worst one of the year. No serious injuries, but did have one girl in a tractor-tired machined get knocked out. Only had a lap belt & the big hole at the end of the pit (her HUSBAND was the backhoe operator) stopped her so quick she bashed her head on the steering wheel. The red flagman woke her up - her first words were, "did I win?".</font color=purple>

Re: better weekend

Did I win? That is great. Did she win?
Our races have been taking way longer then they should too. It does make for along day.
I know what you mean about it sometimes being hard to find the time and energy.

Re: better weekend

<font color=purple>Actually, I think she came out of the side of the pit, which would be a DQ. Got the story 2nd hand as I had left a couple of hours later. With me, time is less of a problem as energy. Got a lot going on this year (broke ground on new house, wife is pregnant), so the mudracer is kind of in the back of my mind more than the front. Though I have to admit that if our races could be shrunk back down to 5-6 hours, I'd be more enthused about them & probably get fired up about the racer. The next event around here is the one under my direction on July 4th. I'm not expecting as many trucks as we normally get locally, and with a higher entry fee & limit on # of passes/truck, I expect fewer multiple-class vehicles. So, with that stuff on my side, I'm going to bust my hump to make sure no "outside" delays screw up what could be a very short day. I've hired the local club to work my race (same club that sanctioned both of the recent long ones), so I'd like to pay back their efforts with a shorter-than-normal event (most of the problems we've had have been related to the town not providing proper equipment/security).</font color=purple>
