New rookie truck racers

mark slater

Hello all,
This is Mark Slater, my son Scott and I just finished our first desert race in a class 1450 toyota 4 cylinder pick up, #1460. We have been building the truck for the last year with help from Jimmie coleman of finish line fabrication. We thought this race would be a good way to get our feet wet and learn how the truck handles and how to drive it. I am very hasppy with our performance, finishing in 9th place. I would have been happy just to finish.

We have been racing dirt bikes competetively in district 37 grand prix and Enduro's for the past ten years. At 47 years old I am not healing as fast as I used to so, as the old saying goes, WITH AGE COMES A CAGE, and we both enjoyed the race very much and look forward to this coming season.

We plan to run most of the MDR california series and some MORE races.
