That Hummbuggy makes the most beautiful music. RG pilots it with great precision & insane speed. Hope he takes it all this time.

Kind of hard to be a fan of such an arrogant prick. Thought he knew it all when he went over to Africa with VW, refused to listen to and argued with his navigator Dirk, told all the VW engineers that they were "doing it wrong". Broadcast that he was the "First American to win a stage" even thought American bike guys had been winning stages for years and years. Came back with his own team and show boated on stages that had little to no difference on the overall race. Fails to finish a stage and is dropped from the race and then does media stunts with the race car (both in Africa & S.A.).

Sorry, I would much rather be a fan of and support guys like Miller, Street, or Cody.

of the "demo" events for the SST is to be held while the El Dakaro is being raced. Rubby has contracts already with NBC for TV, and he wanted to be the next Micky Thompson.

El Matador and Nasser have both shared major testing time in developing past Dakar race cars. However, there simply isn't anytime to develop the current car prior to this next event. Looks are one thing, bling, bling bodies and graphics are window dressing, races are won with prep, development, and more prep. They have barely enough time to get the shocks set up, let alone figure out what the week links are that will need to be addressed in the bivy every night.
Never mind...

Who says last years car can't race this year? Not like he's running an OEM platform and last year's car was plenty fast enough in many of the stages which means pretty easy to show up in the grand scheme of things and address last years short comings.

I'd like to see him build a truck and enter in the dirt race, at Eldora, for the Camping World Truck Series.

I've been a RG fan since his open wheel days. He is the personification of the California hot rod culture. A pure racer. I loved it when he walked out unto the front straight at Loudon and threw his helmet at the car of guy who wrecked him. I think it was Michael Waltrip.

Old school.
