    So what you mean is you are looking for someone that is familiar with the Yerington, Hawthorne, and Fallon so you could get a early idea of what the course is like? Those are in Nevada but close enough to Norcal.

    I have been going to the Vorra desert race tracks for years and I have raced at almost all of them.
    What iam looking for is other people that want to go to the races prerun have a good time and possibly give me a hand at the race.

    ahhh.
    Im always at the races taking pictures somewhere on the track. What kind of pit help do you need? Tire change/refuel help or more of chase help? It might be fun to get involved in helping a team out..

    Thats exactly what iam looking for, a couple of people that can be at a check point or between two check points during a race that carry fuel tires and a few parts.
    Pluse we normally prerun the course on motorcycles and trucks the day before.

    My dad and I are down to help, sounds like fun!
    We are going to be taking my '71 F250 down to the desert races this year so we will have plenty of bed space for spares/fuel/parts or whatever else. We are going to be doing alot of work to it like installing a cage and suspension but I am going to make sure its driveable for every desert race.
    We are bringing the dirtbike too this year for some pre-run-fun.

    we will have to meetup at the Prairie city races, Im the kid with his tall dad with my truck...

    I would also be more than happy to offer some help. Im in Chico, but try to make it to as many VORRA races as possible. Im a decent fabricator/mechanic and have a semi-built prerunner that could be used to chase or whatever. Also if anyone needs any machining services my dad owns a machine shop. I also have a few friends that are into the sport that would also be willing to help.

    I live in Elk Grove and we have a repair shop on Florin Rd. I know the desert season is done but would like to go to Prarie City and meet the local racers. Hopefully next season will be able to do some prerunning/chase in the desert.

    Nothing race worthy but a very capable Unimog and VW Vanagon Syncro. The Unimog has a small bed on the back and is mostly stock except for some resi shocks and lighter springs on the back. It is better suited for the Rubicon.

    The Syncro has a three inch lift and 30" tall tires. It has 9" of travel in the front and 11" in the rear. Has 15" of clearance under the skid plates. It has front and rear lockers and 6.17 R&P's. Engine is stock 2.1L with a tri-mil sidewinder header. It works great in the desert. I have had it on trails in Moab, Truck Haven Hills, Mojave trail and Anza Borrego. Have also wheeled to the look out over Cadillac Hill on the Rubicon from the Tahoe side. For lots of pics and video google "SyncroMog"

    I also have a '91 V6 Toyota short bed 4x4 project. Plans are to build it into a truggy. I have an ESB 18" travel front suspension/steering kit for it. I want to keep it a 4x4 and am leaning towards IRS. I have a Range Rover 4.0 V8 for it also. I may do something wild and drop a VW Thing body on it somehow lol.
