Apologies in advance for the shoddy amatuer camera work! I don't have any sexy video/audio editing skills!

Anyway, Harry Hogge must have set Pete up with a set of special tires that were staggered perfect so he could take advantage of the high line. Or pehaps just taking a peek to check on RJ?

hahahhaha, in my defence.....truck would only run at 3/4 and wide open throttle.....came down front stretch wicked and when i landed off the second table top and jumped on the brakes to pitch-it in (like jerry would) the engine died and it will not steer with engine not running , so at that point we were headed straight......luckily it stopped before we took the robbie-line............................

LOL @ the "robbie-line". Congrats on the great finish. Through the first two it looked like Welchel and McMillen were going to run away but it's funny how things work out sometimes.

I was on the other side of the berm, aways back, and heard the roar of the crowd. I was surprised to see something yellow coming over the berm and someone on the weatherman radio made the Robby line crack. I went over to investigate, and sure enough..... freshly trampled dirt and Maxxis tire tread! It was PISTOL for sure!

What kind of steering is that? Looks like you need a manual steering box and some heavy steel wheels Pete! Congrats on a very good finnish!!!!!!!!
