What a race to the end great job Pistol. Man I was praying. Well next time, u da man.
man, i wanted me to win also.........quick recap.....racing for 3rd with RICKJ on last lap and come upon the 2 leaders stuck next to each other and on top of another truck only 7 miles out on lap 3, (i knew they were close cuz i flipped both of them off when i passed them on the bridge going the other way) suddenly we are in the lead with 60 to go and rick very close on time....i keep it smooth and wait to get splits at the pit areas to see how wild the last 25 is going to need to be......mile 22 smooth road, "POP" right rear blows....guys get out and change it (seems like an hour) and no rj, we take back off and go thru pit 1 and half way thru it our hood blows off at WIDE open, we get the call that he is about 30 seconds back.....now i am on it....clear a few lappers and going fast as we are now racing not only for a win but for $25,000....and we BOTH need it...........clear asphalt road and heading for pit 2.....class 10 on his second lap on left and we are going to fly by on right.....we are nearing a left hander and both lanes pinch down to one....he doesnt know im there and pinches me off...im going to fast to stop from hitting him so we move right and gas it...huge ditch to right but theres no options....i floor it and hold the wheel tight.....the truck makes it but as we get back on the line i immediately no we killed the right rear....we are less then a mile from pit 2 so we call and tell my guys to get ready we have a flat.....we limp to the pit and they change it fast but both rj AND andy go by......now we are out of winning but second still pays better then third so the race is back on......we push it to the finish trying to keep andy in sight as we have a 3.5 minutes to spare and we end up second in TT and second overall......less then 2 minutes out of the 25k payday............after race i looked at second flat and it was caused by the wheel bending on the inside and letting the air out.....and the first one is unknown as we left it, but my guys that got out and changed it said the wheel was broken so they didnt reload it, so maybe that one was the wheel also and not the tire.....who knows........see you all at the BAJA 500!!!!!!!!!!!! bring me a rabbits foot....i need some luck
