    So who all will be ready for the 2012 Lucas Oil Regional Series' season if it starts toward the end of February or beginning of March?

    Axup
    Andrea P.
    AJ
    Gorsky

    Who else will be ready for So-Cal? Who will be ready for the ASCC opener?

    We are doing our best to have two trucks one for Class 8 racer Jeff Stowers and one for longtime fabber Victor Davis. They will be interesting and something no one has seen but they will be legal. Will focus on Glen Helen but may make the trip to AZ once they are sorted out. Any firm dates yet???

    Just about done re-routing the hardlines for the brakes. The valvesprings should arrive tuesday, then Wayne's Engine Rebuilders can finish assembling the head and bolt it on the rebuilt shortblock. As soon as Wayne's is done with the engine, I'l stab it in the truck. All that will be left is to make a couple radiator lines, power steering lines, and finish up the battery ground cable.

    If someone else wants to finish the rest of the stuff, I might be willing to trade a race entry at the last ASCC event of the year. I'll supply the parts, you supply the labor, and you get to race the truck 1 race!

    If I told you it wouldnt be a secret. Its going to be a little heavier than most but if you take 4 components of a truck meaning engine, chassis, gearing and weight we will have an advantage in 3 out of the 4. No Forced induction, didn't think it was legal.Yes its a Nissan. Honestly, we don't know if it will work, we are doing the chassis now hope to test in 6 weeks.

    I should be signing the lease on my shop by week's end, so it is looking good for me.

    IM hoping to score all the safety stuff for x-mas. helmet, suit, etc. and I'm planing on using my tax return to finish the truck. I haven't landed a BMX side job for a minute so cash flow has me almost at a stand still. may not make the first race but will be racing next year.
