    We had a great weekend of racing!!!

    Day one Maranda pulled off an upset and managed second place.

    Day two Maranda let me race and I did not finish. With six trucks left and no losses I launched and felt/heard a bang, pop. I haven't tore it apart yet, but I'm pretty sure the front spider gears are gone.

    I replaced the ring and pinion in the front and fixed a few other odd and ends. This morning we leave for Sutherlin and will be racing there tomorrow, if any of you Southern, Oregon folk want to show, racing starts at 11:00.

    One of those was white and one was pink? Could have fooled me.

    Glad everything worked out for you Monte, congrats on third.

    That white Toyota has been getting the best of everyone all season, it's fast and light. The new trend is Toyota pickups with big HP small blocks, it's getting hard to compete with that. The winner of super stock, modified, super modified, and open were all Toyotas.

    I've been slow to post anything this last year. We only attended a few races this last summer, but during our downtime we installed some headers. I've always wanted to upgrade the exhaust but I could never find any 2" headers that would clear the frame rail. I went with a set of DIY 2" Headman Hustler headers with a 3 1/2 collector.

    I also made a fan shroud, cooling has always been a problem.

    We had to come home on the tow truck. Our 3 year old Optima shorted out internally and melted down.
