As far as 1191 goes, the weekend wasnt ours. Minor issues set us far back on Saturday, definitely leaving Dave with his work cut out for him on Sunday. As expected, Dave shot out from last to first like a missle (on youtube) and by the end of the CORE track had a mile lead on the pack (i never heard him cry about mud or any lame excuse). Long story short, while being stuck behind a 516 for quite some time, 1134 eventually caught up, and while slowing for a turn, 1134 punched us in the decklid which knocked the fanbelt off and put us out of the race. Maybe he doesnt remember hitting us, but oh well. Again, congrats to all winners/finishers. 1191 will be back.

Wish you could have been up front with us, it was intense, that back stretch where you passed Ed I pushed 8 class 9 cars out of the way by the time we made the right into the no passing zone violently with Rulo right behind me with Shermack on his bumper and Guy on his. had another 6 in the no passing zone pushed the one right in front into the 1 in front of him and the next the same. Passed all 6 at that right turn. Rulo and I banged each other all 4 laps, I blew it at the last big jump before the infield leading to the finish, I sailed that in 4th gear and sail off into the dezert going to the left when the course went right LOL lost by 4 seconds or so. Rulo went by when I landed. 5 1600 is where its at, the competition, door banging bumper bustin is great. Get em at ridgcrest.. Rulo posted a great video from rage at the river of 3 laps of us battling back and forth. Look on you tube Laughlin Snore race 2013 554 day 2 incar.
