With regards to Team Ford owner Steve Olliges, we don't have a time for him in his No. 51 truck.
Steve was doing great on lap 1. He was going through the class 1 cars and around mile 36 the left front rotor broke, taking with it the Brembo caliper. We don't have a spare set of calipers, so we called it a day ( you got to have brakes on this course).The course was absolutely awesome. I was going to relieve Steve who had a family engagement and was going to leave after lap two or three. The truck is bad fast and I lowered it down for this event.

Next time...

I heard thru the grapevine that Clay Flippin and the crew won class 10, if so, congratulations to the Kings of Kaliente. if someone can verify that would be great for those stuck in the heat. Also, how did TJ do, he was my armchair pick for class 1 , but it was too late to get into the In & Out $20 deal between P diddy and B-dub. Info?

Class 9?
 
What about 1450? Frank Napoli?
New truck ran well; got stuck a couple times on lap 1 and had an issue w/ the oil pressure sensor but finished top 5 in class, maybe even top 3. Waiting for someone to publish some un-official / official results myself.
