Then he ran and set fast time in his class, then on the second run laid this run down for the "street" win.

It's always a great day, I highly recommend it. A day at the fair, chocolate dipped bacon, deep-fried avocados and racing, mmmm.

IMO you guys should be in the open class. The street class is for more "street" trucks. Not full blown race trucks.

Fish, you might have a point.

We might be overbuilt for the "street" class, but we're surely under-built for the open class. We have an 80K original 4.0 pushrod motor with a stock OE automatic. All smog equipment is fully functional. We've raced Tuff Trucks in the street class for the last five years in a row and have done no better than fourth. We just didn't fall into this win. There were plenty of linked, long travel trucks in our class, V8's and supercharged, I believe. They all probably look a lot better than us on paper. This truck was built by two 15 year olds, at my shop with my help, and was my sons only transportation all through high school. It was originally built for under 10K from an $1100. rollover. It's still daily driven. We drove to the event, and home. Just like we drive it to all pre-runs, and races where we use it to pre-run or chase.

My son won in his truck because it was tuned, stayed on the course, and he didn't over-drive the course. He was there to compete against the clock, not to gain style points.

You seem to have based your "judging" on who got the most out of shape, or had the poorly set up trucks that were the most out of control. That was your criteria, and you're entitled to it. Please don't be too quick to judge those who did well, but didn't fall into the type of entertainment that you were looking for.

Don't worry about the scores ....... Dan Pentico won the open class and scored around the same I think
but you guys were the ones with the win and got the checks right?

I'm pretty sure it was drunken scoring anyways. (no haste intended) ;) lol .... we couldn't even find someone to give us an RDC sticker for the truck (granted we didn't know who to ask)
But it was all so fun it didn't even matter, we had a blast!!!

Ya I agree that there was a few trucks in the street class that should have been in open for sure. Maybe they need 3 classes that way the "stock" trucks with hardley anything done to them can go in their class and then a "modified" class which your truck and the others like it could run in, then the "open" class for everyone else.

No matter what it was a lot of fun and you are correct our scores were for who got the most out of shape, the trucks that actually worked good did have fast times but were not impressive to watch so they got scored low lol. It was all for fun anyways! See ya guys next year.
