We had a great race at ridgecrest. 1st in class, 10th overall. We finished 26 minutes behind the first place trophy and started about 60 cars behind him. We encountered bad visibility on the first lap due to lack of wind. We lapped all other trucks in our class, class 8 and class 12. We ran the whole race without any problems or flats only pitting once for a drivers race and to splash some fuel. Mikey did great as usually driving the first part of the race. I sat co-dawg and then drove the last two laps. Mine and Mikey's lap times were identical even though I should of let off with such a lead. I wanted to see where we would end of overall so I kept pushing the truck.

I was extremely impressed with our new RIGID LED's. They worked awesome and the were such a difference than HID's. We used two 20" ambers on our bumper and two 50" white on our roof. The only thing that I will change is to add one more 20" amber on the bumper and a 50" amber below the two white lights on the roof. It was really cool to turn off the top lights and be able to see in the dust with the ambers supplied by RIGID.

I want to thank our sponsors that kicked in money and parts for this race: General Tire, Rigid Industries, F&L fuel, Slime, 4130 Clothing, PRP, BTR, Danzio performance and Rockstar. I really want to thank the paid and volunteer crew of RFS Motor sports. We could not do it without you. Thanks for the back to back wins!

Do not worry about it Shannon, we had plenty of people out there. We will need help at Primm for the Score 300. We will be flying a helicopter for the next two Score races

Way to go Robert, Mikey and crew. That's very impressive! You've got a streak going, keep it up. It's nice to work with someone who's comitted to win and willing to do what it takes to do so.

Thanks guys for the comments. To be able to run 5 minutes off of the TT times made us feel really good. Mikey and I have a good thing going with the new truck coming.

What a awesome race. I started the truck way back in the pack behind 1600 cars I dont know why... We started off slow and stayed out of trouble got some clean air just into the 2nd lap and really got to start moving. Made a ton off passes only had to hit 1 car in my 3 laps. Our new Rigid lights worked so good it was like driving during the day. No flats on our 37's General tires. Had a blast and cant wait to race Primm

Talk to Robert. I was telling him and Marty on Thursday night why SNORE starts you guys that far back.

Pretty sure your class will get moved up eventually
