Well, we went to MDR California 200. What a great field of 1400 and 1450 trucks! Unfortunately, Wayne (1436) only got about 30 miles in before a severe suspension failure. So our night ended before it really got started. We loved the side by side starting, that adds some excitement. Congrats to Kevin McMurray for the class win.

So my question is this: A while back I asked which races you 1400 and 1450 guys like to go to. This was obviously one of them. Also BAP coming up. But are there any between now and then that a bunch of you plan on attending? MDR, MORE, SNORE, Superstition? We want to go where the action is.

Check out 1450.org they bounce around among different racing organizations and always have good turnouts. The MDR New Years race at Plaster city usually draws alot of 1450s too.

The Dash should be one of are first races back in the new truck shooting for the superstion 250 but want to get atleast 500 test miles before we race. See you guys in Plaster City this year.

I'd race the Dash if I wasn't having a baby due on Jan 5th, and I didn't tear my front suspension/steering up at the night race.

The 3 biggest and best 1450 races of the year in my opinion are:

BAP
MDR Night Race
MDR Bud Light Dash
 

JAM 1600

I am sure we can do something special for you truck guys ( sorry I am a buggy dork at heart ) if you all decide to make it to the DASH ! I will admit when I saw how many 1450's were signed up I was concerned about lap traffic but everyone raced clean and the slow ones got out of the way and the fast ones passed very clean.We can start a list of who wants to race the DASH and when it starts to grow so will the interest with companies that would want to support this event with product and prizes ! If anyone is interested in organizing this event please PM me and I will help with details and suggestions ! ;)

So it sounds like the Dash is the next one to shoot for. How about the MORE Powder Puff race? How many of you trust your wives/girlfriends/daughters with your equipment?

IMO, MORE's 1450 doesn't compare...there a few guys that race there, but until MORE makes some changes they will never have a race that is on the same level as the 3 races I mentioned above...

How about making the DRIVE September 19th race the next big 1450 race? I am game!:D;) I am working on a few things for the 1450 class that are exciting (well to me anyway.) It will be a great/inexpensive race to do given the laps and format and reduced entry fee. If all goes well, looks like we will have a decent payback too. Not bad for a sportsman class. Getty-Up guys and gals, come beat us (or try):p
