Yes, trailer is at my house and all good to go. That's the coolest hitch lock I've ever seen by the way! I'd never seen something like that before as funny as it sounds...

Parker is usually a really fun race! The spectating on the infield is pretty cool and the spectating on Shae Rd is epic!!! I've got some friends that are trying to talk me into an Ocotillo Wells trip the weekend after that though and I could only do one or the other. Also it kinda depends what kind of condition the truck is in after this weekend.

Here's pics I took from last time I was at parker...





I almost got hit taking this shot!!! No zoom, no camera tricks, that's how close I was and the dude rebounded towards me off that whoop he's hitting in this picture.



This thing had a fire breathing V6 in it! Nascar type V6 build...



Cameron Steele, EXPN moto announcer if the name rings a bell...





How to blow up a berm!!!





WHOOPS!!!!








Those were all taken with a cheap point and click camera so all you high end photo guys... suck it!!! LOL Not photo editing or anything...



I'm actually not all that excited about this weekend myself. It's still a lot of work at this point so the fun hasn't really been able to kick in for me personally yet. You should see the 4 column list I have that covers this week right up till they're driving over to the starting line! It's a lot still! I think once we get a race or two under our belts and things become a bit more normal and routine I'll be more anxious for this stuff. I've ridden shot gun a ton of times and I've raced dirt bikes in the desert quite a bit so for me at this point it's just another race with the difference being this time all of the build/prep is on me and a lot of the logistics is on me. I'll be stoked when/if the truck crosses the finish line on Sat though for sure! That'll be the payoff for me personally. I'm not exactly concerned about drivers seat time honestly at this point, I'll get that one way or another either in testing or future races. I just really hope the truck finishes so I can actually say I built a race capable truck.

Garza, Dave said either you or him have a handheld or race radio of some sort? Just double checking, if you do, is it just a monitor radio or can it transmit also?

We have one hand held that so far works fairly well from the little testing we've done and I'm going to pull the radio setup out of my truck tonight or tomorrow and test it to see if it even still works. It's been at least 5-6 years since I've even turned it on. Heck, finding the mic itself is going to be a bit of a chore. I think I know where it's at but if it's not there I'm gonna have a serious game of hide and seek to find it. If you have a hand held I'm think we can give ours to Jason's dad, we can use my big setup if it works in Dave's truck for mobile chase and that gives leaves us yours to hand out as another loaner if we have a 3rd vehicle running for whatever reason.

Any of you speed demons looking for a new street ride? Found something that might get some attention around town for sale soon.

HAHAHA the fire breathing V6 truck IS TT53 now. I actually had a big part in putting those V6's in and it's initial conception when Adam started desert racing. He built that entire truck from the ground up by himself and it has transformed into what it is today.

We rented the same houses we had in Parker last year so there is plenty of room, plus a patio that is over the river, AND........3 houses down from Robby Gordons personal house in Parker lol I usually go over to his garage and drool over the stadium trucks or his pre-runners.

I will talk to Dave about the radio situation and get back to you.


Here is us back when I lived in TX in the V6 days. This was at little Sahara dunes in.......OKLAHOMA!! lol

That's funny, I had no clue that was the same truck. It was badass back then!!! I think that was '08 that I took those pictures. I just remember it sounded nasty at idle and when it went by and a lot of people were speculating what it had in it.

I'll let you know as it gets closer how things pan out for Parker if that's cool. Actually probably by mid next week I'll know once I see what's on the to do list for the truck after this weekend.

Some more purchases for you guys...

I've seen this one around town...

http://www.barrett-jackson.com/appli...?ln=52&aid=466

Not my style but would be really nice with some tweaking to dial it in more to what I'd want...

That would be cool to have but someone with a lot of money is going to buy it and it is going to sit in a garage and never see the light of day. That or some ****** is going to buy it for his kids first car and it is going to get wadded up on the 15 blocking traffic for three hours.

I truly hope that was an act, I can't imagine anyone being that dense.
