Tough week for me.. went to practice night on wensday made 3 laps and broke the rear end again. We think we had the backlash setup to tight and it over heated.. Friday night I started 8th in the heat race and finished 4th with a little help. Passed 2 and 2 cars broke.. started 16th in the feature finished 18th.. missed the setup and had no traction and couldn’t go anywhere. Track was slick as fuck.. ..loading the car up I notice a streak of oil.. too soft of springs in the front and hit a rut and bottomed out knocked a pin hole in the pan.. on the way home the vband on my truck broke.. fixed it sat morning in front of my house and made it to the race.. started 8th finished 7th.. just couldn’t get in a grove and made some mistakes.. rained out after the heat.. I’ll have some videos up later

My brother used to race dirt...after he got burnt out on drag racing. He once let me hot lap his limitied modified and that shit was fun as hell!! I wasnt even racing, but the adrenaline rush is much more intense than it is drag racing. I just cant do the slinging mud and dirt, crashing into people, and all of the hard work and $$$ that it takes to keep up. It takes a certain breed to keep up doing that shit....but i do respect it totally.

My brother was the orange over blue car. That fkr would get down!

Its a lot of fun.. It put my drag car on the back burner but im getting ready to start working on that here again in the next few weeks. Hard to beat paying $35 to race and making the a feature and getting a $50 check just for starting lol.. Needless to say im hooked.. Currently my buddy and I are trying to work out a deal for his late model.. if I can get the new trailer I want I will trade him my enclosed for it and ill go try my hand at that lol
