Brough to you via cell phone from Klaus and Full Pull. This are not accurate or official just what they have witnessed where they are filming from.



Herbst truck looked like they crashed into something before mile marker 10.

Kyle Taylor missing lots of body panels. Running strong still in TT

Jesse Jones missing front end panels and down one lap. Running strong still

Kia is a lap down but still running.

Sourapas only went by once.

Roeseler looked good in the C&D built truck on lap two.

Ebberts, Julson looking great in the front of the race.

More to follow in another hour or so.

According to Offroad.com Ebberts overalls again. Lots of cars crashing and rolling at about mile marker 6-10. Just what I read on ORC.

I hear that Jeffries was 1st TT to finish. Miller 2nd. Herbts TT out with possible trans. Surapas out with trans. Jeffries broke the crank and did not finish under power. Buggies kicked ass. PT Johnson Ford 1st, Johnson Toyota 2nd and Becker 3rd.

Looks like Ebberts and Yee were both able to duplicate what they did back at Laughlin with wins in their classes. The 1 cars stole the show, the first tt was pretty far back. I think up to about 35th overall is up on orc.

Jefferies did actually finish 1st but since they were towed through the main pit by the Dirks/Porter trophy truck they were DQ'ed. We were told that Damen didnt have another truck within 30 minutes of him once he did cross the line. I had heard that they had a broken crank and pushed it almost 1 mile to the finish line.

I just walked in the door from the race, the best race I have been to. In TT class Miller won in his Prophy Truck, then Skilton in the Kia, and then Kyle Taylor third. Out of 13 TT's that started maybe 4 actually finished. Jeffries had the win but he got disqualified because he did not finish under his own power. I was in the main pit when we saw the Dirks & Porter TT towing him on what was his last lap. From what I heard and what it looked like after the race was that Herbst TT rolled, I don't know how bad but they didn't finish even half of their second lap. At the end of the race we were heading to the casino from the wash and on Shea Road we pulled up behind the FST TT ( Avalanche TT) on the trailer behind their chase truck facing backwards toward us ( we were following) and the left front wheel got ripped off the spindle. Funny, looking at that truck before the race it appeared to be so overkill that it would never break, and I stand corrected, that truck is soooo big in person, it has to weigh close to ( if not) 8,000lbs doesn't it? Also, only other two Chevy TT's that were there both DNF'ed because of rear suspension problems, and all of the Chevy TT's ( I think 3) never even completed a lap. I thought what was going to be the biggest problem for everybody would be the length of the race because the laps are so long, but it proved to be that the Parker course is just so rough that alot of the cars didn't finish, still an awesome race though. Ebberts and Julson were flying all day and deserved the overall. I think one of the best parts of the day was watching the start of the race on California Ave. because they would be flying down that street and lock the brakes for the turn, especially Kyle cause he got the pole on Thursday and was hauling ass off the start, hehe.

Anyways, it was an awesome weekend in the dezert, congrats to all the finishers. Viva la Parker!!!!!!!!!

The Herbst truck rolled and so did 5 other TT on the same corner. The FST Avalanche TT now owned by Chevy did actually start the race and sounded strong until about mile marker 3 or 4 and it rolled as well. I was in the pit with Robbie Gordons old ranger with the shocks through the hood and it was running TT as well. THey were in no hurry and were just having fun. Geiser Bros. just went through the truck and put some new stuff on it. Ran pretty dang good. PCI Scott was there in Jesses pit helping him with the TT stuff and was running around like a mad man helping everyone. The two PTs were super close when I left and were in the pits at the same time. The Kia would have been doing better but they got a rock under the belt for the double overhead cams and threw off the timing at the beginning so thats why they were back. Overall it was a cool race, wish they would have ran the gauntlet.
The FST TT has like a 95" front, thats a little much I think.

Just got back from Parker and the event was one of the nicer ones of this year. Weather was perfect. Looked like a lot of people rolled.

As for pictures, we shot some and will post them but concentrated more on some final shots of video for the upcoming dp2 flick.

The one thing I didn't like was that the Blue Water casino is not really a casino if you would compare it to the smallest one in the sate of NV. The security officers all had a bad attitude and liked to display their wanna be power. Next time I'd rather stay in the local Motel6 for half the price and less hassle (hopefully). Overall still a class A event.

Any body see this pro truck on lap one? I was about mile 120 or so off shea road. He came by with a 3-4" tree branch about 3-1/2" to 4ft long(seriously) hanging out of that hole behind the co-driver,I dont think the window net would of saved the guy. I wonder if they even knew it was there, crazy it was sticking straight out and to the rear slightly.
