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.

Awesome story, that's why I love this sport! I guess we'll see everyone out there in less than 6 days!

Stories like that just prove what a great and close community the desert racing community is!! It's nice to know that people pay attention to the good deeds of those around them and in the end they are rewarded :D
