    We made it too, but not thru, the challenge. It was still a great time, But the lack of Power steering, along with a bent spring and blown U-joint, prevented us from actually finishing the event...

    Oh, i may have given the wrong impression, We did participate in both heats that were run, Debbie (My wife) completed one lap of the first heat before the power steering was just too much for her, and our own Ty M started the second heat, but had the spring and U-joint problems before he could complete the heat. For this kind of event, that really isn't a bad showing :)

    Lots of pics and videos were taken at the event, here's a sampling;

    My Photos from the event, they are large, so don't embed well on Binder Planet, When I get them up on Photobucket, I'll post a link to them here;

    That looks like a lot of fun. Some of those rigs didn't look very "cheap" though.

    Believe it or not Jason, they were all pretty "cheap", and all for sale at their declared value at the end, and yet only one was bought, despite appearances, alot of them had... Um, Issues, that helped them live down to the declared values...
