RG\'s Tecate - LaVictoria truck

Anybody remember that picture of RG in the Tecate truck in the air, all crossed up? I've looked for it online but can't find the one I'm thinking of. Anybody have it?

search for "off road racing" or "desert racing". Also Rory might have it on his page (racers only)

Thats not it. Maybe I'm dreaming. I remember thinking it was a pretty awesome picture at the time.

Re: RG\'s Tecate - LaVictoria truck

During he '96 or '97 Laughlin race Marty Coyne was driving Robby's old "Roseanne" truck. He was coming down rolling section and got all crossed up in the air. When he landed, one of the rear tires exploded and he came out with a fantastic save. However, I have never seen a pic of that incident.

BRAAAAAAAAP!

BajaWaldo,
I believe the incident you are talking about was during the 1995 Fireworks 250. It can be seen on Ouch Productions' videos "Crash and Ouch" and the "1995 Fireworks 250."

Re: RG\'s Tecate - LaVictoria truck

Actually, I am pretty sure is was Laughlin because I have watched those tape so many times. But I guess I'll have to go and watch some tapes of off-road racing again this weekend!!! Darn. I will clarify the location and year after viewing.

BRAAAAAAAAP!

Is that the one where Robby says ..." I guess will have to switch to link pins..."?

Re: RG\'s Tecate - LaVictoria truck

I just want to clarify...The "oh-I failed spelling" I am talking about is the when Marty Coyne actually owned and drove RG's old truck.

The RG incedent in Barstow was when RG still owned Roseanne. And yes he said they were changing the front to pins. He also talked about his "new" (then) TT being built that was going to be 2000lbs lighter.

Did Marty Coyne have an "oh-I failed spelling" in Barstow as well?????

BRAAAAAAAAP!

Re: RG\'s Tecate - LaVictoria truck

BajaWaldo,
The Marty Coyne incident we are all talking about took place in Barstow at the 1995 Fireworks 250. Marty Coyne was driving Roseanne and it was painted red, white, and blue with the Ultra Wheels logo on the door. Whether Robby owned the truck at that point or not, I don't know, but Robby was not driving. Robby was driving his '96 bodystyle Valvoline Ford longbed (Mark Post's truck?) in that race.

10-4!

Since ya'll are in concensus, it must be Barstool! I don't know why I thought it was Laughlin.

BRAAAAAAAAP!

Re: RG\'s Tecate - LaVictoria truck

I found this pic of Robbie Gordons Rager. Does anyone have close up pics of it?
