Sooo, we are racing the MDR race this weekend and my co-rider's (Pete/Matt) know my money is tight, said don't worry about a Motel room, we'll take the Toyhauler and we'll buy the gas!! I never asked them, they just said that they would do what they could to help out. What a great bunch of guys!! As for pitting, I only had 3 guys total so my pit help was almost non-exsistant. In steps Mark Naugle (BCG1 on RDC) and the guys from Locos Mocos/Total Chaos, they said not to worry about a pit crew, they would cover it for us. Really? REALLY?? Now, since I'm also a member of the "Cheeze" (Tony Tellier's off road e-mail group), TT offered some funds towards our car, along with Billy Robertson (Class 1 racer and owner of Honda of North Hollywood). I never really asked for anything, these are just good people that know what it's like to go racing on a budget! Keep in mind, we are only racing MDR this weekend to TEST for the Baja 1000 (hopefully), we don't plan on breaking any records, just a nice consistant race, getting some experiance for some night time racing. Thanks guys, you really don't know how much I appreciate your help....Sincerely, Rory Ward.
