thanks man! Next race is Feb. 28 out in Johnson Valley again. A buddy of mine is going try and make it - Bourkeo and my wife and room mate will be out there as well.

Today is the opening salvo for my new arm-strength campaign! Ive hooked one of my 20 lb. dumb bells on a rope to a stick. From the floor, I wind the stick and raise the weight up to the bar..... if this doesnt make my grip better for the next race, NOTHING will.



next weekend is the Bradshaw Bomb run!



cant wait!

I got No class
I raced cars off and on from 1983 to 2001 did 5 complete seasons and won 4 championships 92,93, 97,2000 crashed pretty hard in 1998 and hurt my back, that slowed me down quite a bit so now I'm 99% retired (still have my car rotting away in the garage and prerunner in the driveway though)
I raced SCORE, HDRA, SNORE, La Rana, MDR, & More.
Mostly in Lucerne, Barstow, & Ridgecrest, also in Parker, San Felipe, Caliente, Las Vegas, & Boulder
I've been riding motorcycles since I was 11. Now I just take me and my kids (3/4 of them) trail riding alot or watching car and motorcycle races.
My 2 youngest have done a couple of D-37 races and did VERY well 5th and 6th out of 25-30? (kids race) but I was extremely proud of them , they would have done better if they didn't crash into each other in the first turn and one crashed in the last turn of the last lap we mostly ride in lucerne but we go to barstow also so they have only know how to ride in the hard stuff

See you out there. I am on my strict training regimen of lounging around and trying to not expend any precious energy. I'm gonna need it this weekend.
