March and there's a good chance we'll be running double duty with a jeep speed pit crew and their ride also for the next race. Haven't discussed details but the idea has been tossed around.

Yea, he jumps out of helicopters just to find the best skiing every year too. I guess the rest of the snow we all have access to just isn't good enough

And while the "rich" part helps....sometimes being a GREAT self-promoter to even richer people works wonders too.

I've got a friend that heli-skis all over the world on friends dimes. I'm talking Alaska to Chile and Nepal. And he lives in Mammoth which is arguably the best ski resort out of his back door in California. In fact for thanksgiving he LITERALLY borrowed the private jet and pilot to fly from Mammoth down to San Diego for the weekend on their dime. He was told take it anywhere he wants and the only stipulation was it had to be back by monday after thanksgiving cause that's when the owner needed it.

But the part that made me laugh is not having much success in 6100 so they go ahead and step up to the next class? Common sense tells me that maybe I should wait a bit to move up but like I said, rich people make me laugh...

^^^^ LOL Right!!!! That friend I'm talking about is the code enforcement officer for the city of Mammoth, Ca. So it's not like it's his income that's affording the insanity! When we were up there for beerfest this past summer he had friends that were paying the tabs in the bars for our entire group both nights.

Maybe our friends are friends? LOL, because that's about right on the same stories I hear. My buddy lived in Truckee for like the last 5 years before moving back to TX......and I know one of the "super loaded" dudes who owns the chopper and some of the mountains they ski on, named a peak after my buddy since he was the 1st person to attempt it out of a chopper.

Rich or not, top 10 2nd year in TT with the most budget team in that class, impressive to me especially since he physically built that entire truck and still pays for everything that breaks or needs replacing out of his pocket, not a sponsors!!!! Heck, I buy all his old 40" Toyo front tires after each race as a way to help support the cause. He basically survives by doing custom fab jobs in between races.

And FWIW, If I ever do decide to race Ultra4, I won't be starting in stock or stock mod. All or nothing, but that's just me.

Definitely just you and not me, if I'm going to pay to play I at least want to play where I have a chance at walking away with some proof of success and I'm grounded enough to know that the upper echelon of racing for me at least, that's not a possibility.

I didn't say I would go into it with high expectations! lol. I like the "nothing to lose", "everything to gain" approach.

Ah, then that explains how they can afford to race a 2011 raptor also! Not your average run of the mill raptor either, crazy how much of that very expensive ride they likely gutted and threw away!
