    Fraud targets SCORE's site

    Fraud targets SCORE\'s site I am hoping that I am not repeating a previous post, but even if I am, I hope this will serve as a reminder. On the SCORE site, I advertised my class 10 car for sale, also, a type 1 motor, and a Mendeola 4 speed. An e-mail was sent to me recently regarding my car...

    keeping up the strength

    I will be racing my class 10 car at the BITD Nevada 1000. I plan to drive the full 1000 miles. The race will take place over a period of three days. Normally, after a one day race, I loose around 5 to 7 pounds...and for me, thats a lot! I need to keep up my strength, and keep the weight ON...

    I need a large screen GPS for the Nevada 1000. I would like some recommendations for a good, yet simple to understand unit. How much do they run??? I will need to mail order it since I probably won't get a chance to go shopping for one, and it needs to be sent directly to my chassis builder...

    Off-Road Racing class

    I was asked by our local middle school to teach a four day course on Off-Road Racing. I will have FOUR hours to fill. I thought about safety issues, equipment, videos, maybe even tire changing (if their safety rules will allow it). Any other ideas? Bad Ass Toys Aren't Just For Boys!!!

    Reservations for Parker

    New class 10 rules

    There has been some controversy over the new class 10 motor changes. Today, SCORE finalized the changes. A two seat car with an air cooled motor can move up to 2000cc...not 2050 as orginally stated. Also, the restrictor plate that was mandated for the water cooled motors will NOT go into...

    Calif 200

    The Calif 200 was my first night race. I found it rather difficult. It was probably a combination of things, but mostly the dust. I would say that for at least 60% of the race, I simply could not see through the dust. Is this typical at night? I had my HID's mounted on the hood of my...
