In cab camera from Finchum Offroad Racing's Trophylite #6084 chasing down Trophylite #6000 with Rick Johnson driving it for the first time (normally driven by Louis Chamberland). The lens is dirty and full of dust, but still a great video with the media helicopter coming in close at the end. It got cut off too short, so I will repost with more video.

Due to the dust on the lens the quality gets difficult to see and then gets better.

More to come....

great vid,much better without that stupid music

Thanks and I agree. Our sound isn't great, but I think for the next race I will have the mic issue figured out. I am almost finished putting some other highlights together. Should have 2-3 more this weekend to post.

Cool video.

Who has the helicopter footage?? :D

I would love to know the answer to that question. If anybody that know who has it or if it will be televised, please share. If not televised, then I would be interested in how to get a copy of it, I am sure TROPHYLITE would as well.

That was cool I would like to see the video when we had our tire issue. Nice pass that was the better line.

Thanks that was great footage the chopper was B.A. it's amazing that he was so low and not dusting you out. I don't think he was worried about the 500 foot rule :cool:

I will post 2 more videos in a bit. One of them is your dust going to the left (can't see the truck) and your tire rolling down the road. Should be up in an hour or so.

During the prerun we stopped here for a few minutes and I walked back down the right side road realizing it was a better option. I must say, I was very happy when you guys dodged left at that moment. Apparently I never got much ahead since as soon as I stopped for a splash of gas you blew past.

No. Getting our hands on that footage may deem to be very difficult. I guess like everyone else and their trucks, we can just hope to have it make the cut.
