no, that one has all straight cuts and no dents. Everyone knows that Puck does not cut straight and dents everything.

I just cleared my PM box... If you have 100% intentions for coming out to our race Sat Sept 28th PM me so I can pass your name on to Jason. I'm not promising pit access but if we have enough after getting the core group access we'll disperse from there.

Ricky & Merrick, I'm assuming you guys are in and we'll have passes for you guys for sure. Ricky, let David know he's got a pass too.

Anyone else toss me a PM with first and last names and if we've got enough we'll get them for you. I only am including those guys for sure above cause they were at the last race and were proven great help, no offense to anyone obviously...



Race details...

Friday Sept 27th is open for everyone. It's contingency where all the race trucks get inspected. You can see all the vehicles in person up close. It's happening up north at the Moapa Travel Center/fireworks stand. At the same time the Ultra 4 race will be going on. From contingency you'll be able to watch a small short course infield type section of the race and they'll have a jumbotron setup showing live footage from the rock sections. What rock sections you ask???










Here's additional spectator info for the ultra 4 race... If you want to head out to watch in person have a blast!!! You won't hurt my feelings by not hanging out at tech with us for the day and I'll actually be a little bit jealous. Heads up though, the end of the day may get a little long waiting for action if it's like any normal race.

Here is the deal for Spectators:

There will be a 'short course' infield at main pits where you can see the start/finish, pit action, and jumbotron coverage of the race. Contingency for the HDRA race on Saturday will also be going on at the same location during our race.

I have decided to add one remote area. This will be a little tricky but the opportunity is amazing. There is a section of the course that is between two of the rock trails and up on a hill. You can see a couple miles of go fast a HUGE downhill rock trail and a long uphill canyon that is 15 cars wide with multiple ledges.

The tricky part is there is no way to get to it without crossing race course. We will offer 'escorted' access to the area but you will be committed to that location for the duration of the race. The marshalls will be leaving the main pit at 8:00 AM and leading the spectator group to the location. Once there you will not be able to leave until escorted back at the completion of the race (5:00 PM). I will work on a port-a-potty but food and water will be your responsibility.

This is not 'Open' land. This area has NEVER been used before. No one has driven on the rocks and more importantly no one has put a couple hundred spectators on the hill there. Everyone signing up for this opportunity is also signing up to help us the leave the area as beautiful and trash free as it is now.

I realize it is an unusual situation for a spectator area. I had intended on offering no remote spectator areas at all but this area is too amazing to keep under wraps.

The live coverage will shoot from both rock trails if you can't make it out.





Now for our actual race on Sat Sept 28th... I don't have details nailed down yet schedule wise but I do know our race starts at 4pm and will run well into the night. Could be VERY late depending how things go. Fast classes will race 5 laps of 60 miles and we'll be doing 4 laps. If all goes well we can average probably about 40mph lap time and with us getting off the line probably around 4:30-5:00ish it likely would be 11ish when we crossed the finish line if all goes well. If not, well... Hopefully we don't see the sun rise! LOL

The course map isn't out yet but we have been told there will be 2 remote pits. We've heard that those pits will not really be accessible. We're not totally sure what that means yet but it sounds like basically you can send someone out to those pits at any time but once they're out there they won't be able to get back out of the pits till after the race. You're committed for the long haul basically and likely won't be getting out of there till after midnight. That's the assumption we have right now, we're still waiting on more details. If anyone is 100% coming out and wants to volunteer to go hang out in the desert for 8+ hours watching vehicles bounce by we're accepting applications. We'll set you up with a pit box, gas can, some tools, and a radio. Toss in your cooler, chairs and a grill and make a nice relaxing afternoon/evening of it. It's actually somewhat fun believe it or not... Hang out with others in the pits and watch the action.


Anyways, PM me names for pit access bands on that Sat if you're interested and I'll get you as many pit access bands as possible.

BTW, anyone getting pit passes, just a heads up, we're going to be forging your name for you saying you're not going to be an idiot in the pits and that you know you're going to be at a offroad race and surrounded by potentially dangerous stuff and yadda yadda yadda... Just a heads up...

Glad to see that you are feeling better.


That is great that you guys are doing this Khris. I wish that I could help out, but that is going to be one of our free weekends while the wife is home on her mid tour.

next week I will let you take me out to lunch since I will be working right down the road from you. I am going to eat out while I can, because while my wife is here I will be brown bagging it.

haha, I doubt it. I am guessing maybe a sandwich, chips, and maybe a soda.


The two other guys that will be in my office both live close and go home for lunch every day. So I will be the odd man out. I guess there is a chick that works there too, but she just pushed a baby out so she will not be there for a while.


Adam lives around the corner too, maybe I could start crashing his house and jump in his pool. Honestly I will probably be packing my lunch most of the time though, too much of a tightwad to be eating out everyday.

Sorry to be Debbie downer. Doctors have said mom is essentially brain dead. We have made the decision to take her off the ventilator shortly. She will likely pass fairly quickly after that. Everyone here has the same opinion that there is no chance of recovery, and it's time. Thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers. It means a lot. Thank you all.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
