I figured they'd have posted the news by now... but since they haven't, I will.

#348 placed 4th... they had several flat tires during the race and a fuel deficiency in the 3rd lap that held them to 4th.

Sorry for slacking on the update.

In other news - BigJHoov and Chuck had vehicle trouble of another sorts while leaving Vegas Sunday morning to head back to Texas. Ugh.

Sorry for the delay, I am still trying to catch up. Well 6 started and 2 finished I think. Tuff coarse. By the time we started about 1/2 the coarse was silt beds and the fast trucks were nearing the end of their first lap. Lap 1 Wayne had a flat. I drove lap 2 and was nurfed so hard at mile 18 that I was pushed sideways. Cut a tire and bent the tire rack. I was in the air about 1/2 the time and had a great time. Pulled the 311 racer out of a silt bed and later passed 304 stuck in a silt bed. Jason drove lap 3, he had 3 flats and run out of gas about 4 miles for pit. He was out of spares so hammered on the best flat to get it to seal, jumped the freeway fence and thumbed a ride to the pit, got gas and a ride back the the racer and finished his lap. From Baja experience where we were getting 8 to 10 MPG we figured on getting at least 6 MPG, turned out we got 5.8 MPG :( . We were never stuck and for the first time we had no mechanical breakdowns. The radio did not work for the whole race. I think the tire pressure was too low causing the tire cuts. We needed new tires anyway and something with more traction so I'm looking for rims and tires. While I would like to have finished I am happy with the way the racer and all the crew proformed. We learned and will do better next time. A side note, we did the best of any EB at the race:)
