Hi Jen, Hi Austin, I'm Khris and I'm alcohol ummm oops, wrong forum. I've got a lifted disco Explorer that I completely knocked the alignment out of on my Halloween dezert trip trying to drive WAY too fast with too many people in it. I'm hopefully buying some Donahoe radius arms tomorrow evening and getting it aligned next week so I can knock it out again. Then later I'm going to get the front beams reworked and sitting back on stock brackets with those funny coil thingies that Austin talked about. I'm currently a facilities engineer but have recently begun aggressively trying to get my foot in the door at a fab/design shop. Oh, I've got a POS Honda Civic with 230K miles that I can't blow up!!! I've got pictures of it a foot in the air though and it still drives straight unlike my Exploder, maybe I'm building the wrong vehicle for the dirt. I ride dirt bike almost every weekend and I used to ride BMX street and dirt jump before I blew my knee up a 2nd time recently. Ummmm, I'm 6'2", 215lbs, blonde hair, blue eyes. I go to clubs and bars on the weekends when I'm not at the dezert. I like the beach and the pretty pretty girls. My dog's name is Jessie, she's a Black Lab. I don't have a girl friend right now but I've been seeing this chick kinda for the past couple weeks so we'll see where that goes. I'll be at the Malibu Dan's preparty/dinner and drinks thing tomorrow so say hello. Ummmm, is that enough Jen? Oh yeah, and I live in Ramona (San Diego county)

Me nombre es Shaun. I am 22 years old, have a 98 tacoma 4x, and live in Redondo Beach, CA. I am Inland Prerunner member #10. Any time I can get away, I'm off to the desert with my wife Michelle. I help out Greg and Jen from Prerunners.com anytime I can at offroading events. You will see me racing in the stock class at the Sandblast in December, or photographing this weekend in Lake Havasu for the short course race. Well, I think that covers it.

I'm Pete from Alpine & 39 yrs.old. I race a 5-1600 when we can, and help our friends when we can't. We'll be working FAIR pit B this weekend. I work in the performing Arts biz, so it is hard to get enough week-ends off. I can usually be spotted at the races in a lifted Jeep Cherokee with a big cow-catcher bumper on the front, a purple and yellow 5-1600, or a large Coronado motorhome with the Coors and Beer mug flags flying.

Hello new people (and everyone else) , Im victor fabian. I do some of the video, wait scratch that, all of the video for www.stuck-throttle.com</A> . I try to make it to every single desert race to shoot good video but it gets very difficult when you have such a small budget. Im also trying to put a race team together to race the 2 wheel 250 pro class in FUD-land but once again the budget thing. I'll also finally be driving my first race, after being co-pilot for a like a whole 3 years, this december...and i think thats it.
Oh yeah, im 22 yrs old and a full time photography/film major in south san diego

I'm Rory, I've got a 1999 Ford F-250 with stock cookie cutter Firestones (one that exploded on the way back from Baja at 80MPH), kinda has the LUND look, all that ugly stuff, but soon to be outfitted with some real tires...BFG's of course. I'm 31, have 2 kids, Lindsey who's almost 16 and Hanna who turned 8 months today, married to my wife Tracy. I'm a full time Fireman/Paramedic in Bullhead city, and have a side buisness called "Racers Only motorsport designs" where we provide custom racing artwork for t-shirt designs. We also set up a booth at Tech at every SCORE event (and anything else we can hit)and sell our clothing, and I also chase for Collins motorsports at the Mexico races. I've co-rode in a 5-1600 to a class 5 unlimited. My first and only race that I drove was the 2000 SNORE AVI 250 where we placed 1st in class 5 (so we were the only entry, big deal, a win is a win). Right now we are in the final stages of building a 4 seat prerunner with 20" of travel at all 4 corners, King shocks, Toyota motor, and all the good stuff. Hopefully it will be complete by the Laughlin race or in the worst case, San Felipe 250. Thats about it, great idea Jen, nice way to get a feel for who's out there.

I'm Jason, 17, from Carlsbad, CA. Just got a 90 toy that i'm putting a turbo 22r in. Been 6 months since i rolled my truck last and can't wait to get this one running and out to the dezert. Looking to get into fabrication and will learn it by building my truck myself, cage, suspension, etc. we'll see how it turns out. Next year goin off to college to do some engineering and after that hopefully make a good living building off-road race trucks and race cars. My hero's Adrian Newey, the greatest race engineer of my lifetime.

Okay-I'm Ryno, I think the only Chevy guy on the board. I have a 94 Z71, looking to rid my truck of stock front end equipment in the near future. I have a CR250, I ride in Ocotillo, Glamis, Superstition. I have a girlfriend, and a 10 week old Rottie. I live in San Bernaghetto, but from San Diego. Just getting into the racing part, but I've been a desert guy since I moved out here when I was 14. I'm a carpenter by trade, I build large custom homes in Rancho Santa Margarita, and Newport/ Corona Del Mar. If you need stuff built, ask me =) My fav racers are Collins and Ragland (CHEVY POWER!!). Tt...ttt..tt..tthat's all folks.

Who is Race-Dezert..

CORE....Founder Klaus Rasch, very involved day to day with backend(behind scenes).. Founder Paul K. has taken a backseat while he gets his own business going..John Bitting handles the more visible parts of RDC.

RDC Crew... Curtis Guise, graphic designer, sticker man. Gabe Lara, shoots video at all races. Jeff Archambeau (dezdude) Covers all mdr races for photos...

Helpers.. We have had many people contribute pics to the site over the last few years and to this we are very thankful. IP Crew IP meetings and MDR, SCORE, Jason LaFortune MDR, Dave Baldwin (modelman) will cover all FUD races next year.. and I am sure countless other people I am forgetting..


Thank you to all of the readers for making Race-Dezert what it is today..

I am Jim Beaver. I am from parker, Arizona. My dad is Dan Beaver who has raced class 8 for 28 years, mainly in SCORE and HDRA when it was around. I am 21 and have been around off road racing since I could crawl. I race our 96 F-150 in class 8, and will be doing most of the BITD and SCORE series next year. I have raced our pre runner in SNORE and Whiplash this year. My father and I are building a single seat Trophy Truck for me right now that is due to be finished sometime in the 2003 season. I am also a full time college student in my 3rd year studying business. Great idea Jen.
