    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    Phil, if you seeking competition, you are probably better off looking at the upcoming SNORE schedule. Next month's Midnight Special in Jean will likely have 4-5 Class 3000 entries. From the rumors I heard recently, the new Fusion trucks will not be ready for Silver State. Call Brian and check...

    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    The key to maybe getting car/truck counts up in BITD races might be that the existing Class 3000 vehicles will be grandfathered in. If the class decides to implement the new engine packages in all of the series, existing cars and trucks can swap to the new motor and be competitive without...

    Desert racing is officially returning to California. McKENZIE'S 300, June 6, Lucerne Valley, CA.

    RM 3.5 to 4 is a popular spot. Cars and trucks are up to speed and then arrive at the first gotcha. Here is a link to the 2015 race when Justin Lofton crashed. Lofton Crash 2015

    Desert racing is officially returning to California. McKENZIE'S 300, June 6, Lucerne Valley, CA.

    Looking forward to a great weekend of racing and spending time in the desert again. Thank you Cody and everyone in the MORE family for all of your hard work and effort to make this happen!

    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    I believe there is a movement to change all of the rules to better accommodate the buggies and live axle trucks. The new BITD rules were not written with any input from any active Class 3000 owners or racers. The last time the class made the rules back in 2009 we had a meeting. It is difficult...

    Race numbers on your race cars and trucks

    I wonder what happened to "TrailGlow" who was making lighted number panels around 2008-9 out of Barstow. They should have been required in the desert, especially for night races. Edit: Out of business= TrailGlow Ceases Production

    Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. Good thing racing isn't a beauty contest.

    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    Again I have been fairly close to this class since the beginning and saw the promise and then the demise or maybe the death of the class when Class 5 and Class 10 approved Ecotecs in their classes. I doubt that your number of "30+" class legal vehicles is correct unless you are counting the...

    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    I believe Mason built the truck for Dana. It raced a few weeks ago at the MORE race in Barstow. The twin to that truck owned by Reid Rutherford won almost every race in Baja that it entered:

    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    Another originator in the class back in 2007/2008 was Dana Dague. This truck is still racing today.

    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    Here is a link to the "CL1 v. TL?" thread 11 years ago or so if you want some background on the class: C1L or TL? Our first entry in the class was one of those "weird" trucks with a beam front end. Another lengthy thread was the discussion on Class 5 v. 3000, similar to the on debate 5s v...

    Is Class 3000 Dead ?

    It is interesting that whoever came up with these rules has both liveaxle and transaxle vehicles at 118" maximum wheelbase. The liveaxle "truck or suv" can run these engines: "1. FORD 2.3 TURBO ECOBOOST ENGINE, CONTROLL PACK #M-6007-23TA WITH CONTROLL PACK #M-6017-23TA WITH 310 HP AND 320 FT LBS...

    On Topic Insurance

    Hagerty will write a policy with just the serial number from the engine. This is for their "limited trailer and paddock" along with comprehensive coverage. I just confirmed with them on the phone.

    Switching it up a bit...King of France - Ultra4 Europe

    Very cool Dave! Any chance that you had a Knoll/FOJV buggy sighting over there? It was sold a few years ago and shipped over to France. Keep up the awesome work!
