    Thanks for the opportunity to share a memory and bring a smile to my face during a grim time. The memory was in Barstow the evening after the Fireworks 250 either '89 or '90.

    Robby Gordon / Flash Gordon

    Jean-Louis Schlesser has been doing it on his own for years with success... JLS had the French lottery sponsoring / backing. This was likely due to his success on the pavement. Some irony between JLS and RG, JLS purchased his first Dakar buggy from Baja Bob.

    TORC Eldora - WHAT TO LOOK FOR...

    The track was dry for the buggies (not televised) that ran before Prolites. Then huge downpour soaked the place. The track conditions were the best for Pro4 and that was best race of the night. Both Keegan Kincaid -PL and CJ's -Pro2 trucks had a noticable higher engine pitch around the track...
