Whats the outcome of these 2 events who won in classes what about some stories? I went to the more race and class 1600 was a 1 second victory Jon Kennedy over Dan Martin. Class 9 Dan Folts lost by 10 seconds to BJ Proctor, any other stories results??
I was told Jeffries won TT and the championship in his Porter built TT and Scott and Jesse Jones got second place. The Lugo Truggy was rolled on the first lap. This is information that was given to me. I left Vegas at 5:00am this morning to return home for a family emergency so I missed the race and tonights banquet.
Kyle Taylor was leading Trophy Truck for 1.5 laps, dropped the dry sump belt and that put him down for a while, but still finished. Stiles was running his protruck in trophy truck I think. Harley and Kory won the pro 10 race, and got 4th overall (Won class 10 by 9 sec.) Manny Esquerra won stock full, won the championship, and became the first driver to ever win a championship in 4 different decades. Foutz was 2nd in stock full. I think Hogan won protruck and Becker got 2nd. Dallaire won class 8 in the AJays truck. Jernigan in 7 unlimited I think. I also saw quite a few class 1600's at the race, but don't know who won.
I don't know who hit the back of my class 10 car, but the severe impact was totally uncalled for. It was a red class 8 truck. He was behind me for less than 30 seconds before I started pulling over (I couldn't pull over immediately because of the terrain). After I had already started pulling off and my front tires were off the road, he came in for the hit and hit us so hard that it destroyed the whole back end of my car, and I was lucky there wasn't engine damage. It also caused my co-driver and I to experience neck, back and jaw pain. An oil pressure problem caused us to dnf the race. I would like to thank Letner Racing for the oil filter, Outlaw Racing for oil, and the Hummer Team for pulling us out after we got stuck.
First of all.....I would just like to give a nice, big middle finger to Primm Valley Resort. I made reservations on Friday afternoon, called the hotel and confirmed everything. Now I have never been to a race in Nevada, and niether has yotatech by himself (we are both 18). So when we got there at 1:00am we went to check in, and the hotel would not let us get a room. He pretty much told me that it was MY fault because THEY did not ask my age or check my ID when I was making the reservation. I told him we don't want to party or gamble or drink, we just want to sleep and we will be checked out by 6:00am at the very latest....Nope, couldn't be done. So we spent the night in the beautiful "Crimson Rage" hotel and casino ( in the Corbeau seats of yotatech's single cab Toyota, it would have been a casino if we had a deck of cards...lol). Thank you to everyone who read this for letting me vent.....I suppose it might have been our fault, but I am just pissed about that.
Anyway, now to the race..... It was the best race I have been to so far. Especially because we got to spectate from pit B with the Taylor Motorsports crew. Lap 1..... Kyle Taylor started second to last in his (TT) class with 30 second separations at the start and by mile marker 31 he was first in his class and first overall, by the time he got to us at pit B he was 3:00 minutes ahead of second overall who was Jefferies. Also on lap 1 coming towards pit B Jones in Steinberger's truck missed a slight right hand trun just before the pits and went behind them, so he had to flip a b**ch and get back on the coarse where he went off so he could pit. Kyle would have defintely gottenn the overall if he didn't have the problem with the oil pump belt on lap 2. He finished 14th overall (I'm assuming), 4th in his class and second in points at the end of the season just behind Jefferies. It was so exciting getting to watch the race from the pit of a Trophy Truck team, and watching them pit too, it was an awesome race. I want to thank NOODLE and Taylor Motorsports for an excellent race.
P.S. BLM did outnumber spectators, we would have gotten a crappy place to watch if it wasn't for Taylor's and NOODLE, thanks again.
DIRT'S FOR RACING, PRERUNNERS ARE FOR GETTING THERE!
Wow how did you get team hummer to pull over for you. We broke and were helping Tony Mccormick that drives Dave Westhams tt get back rolled over at mm#25 they were on the side and were in the middle of the course. We stood there with the tow strap and the drove stright around us like they did not ever see us. The also did that a few years ago to us. As far as I care that team can kiss my ass . Payback sucks.......
There is more than one Hummer vehicle. The first one past us by. The 'pull' was uncomplicated as I had lost power and got stuck in the sand (I was not upside down or on my side). It took 25 seconds to pull us out (I, too, had strap in hand). I would also like to thank the guys in the class 7 truck who attempted to pull us out (I'm sorry, I don't remember your number) and nearly got stuck themselves, and had to forfit the rescue.
We are out there racing, just like everyone else out there. We are not the Tow service to racers in trouble. We had two trucks running at the LV 200, both for a points championship. The Flag HUMMER was in a dead heat with a Ford Bronco for the lead and had no time to even think about stopping. The #8103 Hummer Pick-up was 32 minutes off the lead and took the time to stop to help a few racers because we had the time to help without effecting our final outcome.
We have an obligation to our sponsors to run as hard as we can for the win and we can't win if we spend our time towing the rest of you out of the silt.
Having said that, we do what we can, when we can. I have known Dave Westham for 15 years and he is a very good friend of mine. Don't you think we would help if we could?
I would like to take a minute to thank Brad Inch for letting me drive his car at this weekends MORE race. Here's a recap on the weekend:
I had about 15 miles in the car before the start of the race. We knew going in that the car was tired from a years worth of racing. I was hoping to get acquainted with the car and not embarrass myself after seeing the competition I was up against. I started 5th, and after lap 1 was 3rd on the road. On lap 2 I rolled the car at about 5 mph, and except for destroying a brand new roof (at least I know what to get Brad for Christmas now!), I was 2nd on the road and in about a 4 way tie for the lead. Laps 3-6 were good and I had a 4+ minute lead and thinking it was my day. Then the whole world came apart. It started with 2 plug wires falling off. Pit A put them on, and within a mile, the power steering belt came off. I drove to pit B and they put on a new belt. Then the plug wires came off again, so Main taped them on and put in some fuel. I may have still had the lead, but there were 3 cars coming fast. I then flatted a right front, and went a long way on the rim. I probably went way too slow, but I didn't want to tear up his new front drums. 1st-3rd went by me by then. Then the alternator light came on, so I turned off the pumper and radio and stopped again at A. It was a wire that was easily fixed and I was off again. I was having a hard time controlling the car and later found that the steering ram was tearing out of the beam. Then finally on lap 8 the rear trailing arm broke, ending the day. I had a total blast driving the car, I still can't believe what these cars can do with limited suspension and HP.
I want to thank my wife and kids and family for the support, all the great CORE members who came out to pit and to MORE for a great race. And a huge thanks to Brad Inch and his sponsors, Transaxle Engineering and Lothringer. Congrats to the winners and finishers, it was a hard fought battle the whole way.
We'll see you guys Jan. 18th for the first PRO-1600 race of the year.
"You're just jealous because the voices don't talk to you"
I always thought that all racers stayed together. What if those guys were hurt and had no radio comunication. What if they needed help. Jason Jernagen won 7 open but he still stop to try to help flip them over. Just before we broke we stoped a pit A and a guy came up to me while I was in the truck and asked me to take something to his truck that was broke down for him and I did no questions asked. Hay I am just saying that with the time that R.H has been around you would think that He would help out anybody championship or not. I know I would, The feeling of gratitude is way better than a championship. So just keep on doning the thigs you guys do, that is your thing. Just dont expet me to help you out if you in trouble. The truck we had help us barely could flip it over because of the spot they were in. We thought that the low torque of the diessel would help.
Even when we were pre running the guy in the new yellow hummer did not help either. Were was the championship there. Oh well that is enough you guys can talk all you want I dont care.
Lol You guys should have let me know that you were going to get rooms in primm.
First off the rooms in Jean are better and they closer to the track.
Second out of the box...because of the Sand drags that we do up there I could have got you all rooms for nothing and no trouble.
Third, don't reserve send the oldest looking person up and get a room, just one with two beds, tell them no one is with you, and your on buisness, look tired. Worked for me all the time in laughlin, vegas primm when i was only 17 and 18 after all that i got older friends. Or send up a girl, hardly ever say no to the PIPES!
just a click away, later!
Anyone can escape into sleep, we are all geniuses when we dream.
Hey easy on the Primm bashing, my best friend at school is Matt Primm......his family started and owns all those casinos in Primm! They also own the New York New York but they still won't sponsor my race team....bastards!!!
don't get me wrong i Wont go any where but buffalo bills if i gotta stay there but I have been there enought to compare and the Jean rooms were cleaner and service was better, but what do you expect from a small stack of casinos. But who cares about that if you are jucied all the time wandering around the casino droping cash and picking up PIPES!
