Oh I totally forgot about the video. This sucks but it's hilarious. So I'm over there for Christmas and my dad hands me his camera to download the video, he has no clue how, I pull it up and instead of you and 763, it's Vance in the total chaos truck passing some other 7 open truck. I don't know how you confuse those but he's old so what are you gonna do? If it makes you feel any better, he also pointed to a blue trophy lite in the video and thought that was our truck...note to self, don't get old. Sorry to get your hopes up, but now we have something to make fun of the old man about.
Next time you see him give him a little guilt trip about it and I'll bet he'll buy you dinner
Sorry for the delay. I just heard back from my Dad, it's on his camera and he is going to get it to me ASAP so I can send to you.
It was good to race you guys again too. 2008 season we were the only 7s truck in several races, it was great to have some solid competition this year, especially guys that are out there having a good time and are friendly with the competing teams. I'm sure you know that's not always the case.
We can't make BAP but hope to see you guys at the Mint!
The 1000 was great! Truck ran perfect and we just kept plugging along. The only problem we had was getting stuck for 3 hours in a deep sandy wash south of San Felipe. It took a hi-lift jack and a 4x4 truck to get us out. Since we only lost by 2 hours it's hard not to think 'if only we hadn't got stuck we'd have won' but you just never know. If we were leading the race the entire mentality of the team would have been different and maybe we would have made a worse mistake and DNF'd. The course was INSANELY rough! I think we swapped 2nd place with Turley a few times. We were running the same frequency as them and could hear them the whole race so they were never far away. Then 35 miles from the finish they radio'd us and told us they were out of the race. The win would have been nice, but we're pretty darn happy with a 2nd place finish. Are we still going to see you guys at Laughlin????
