but there's no way were taking him food,, forget that....... hahahaha

as far as frying, how bout an easy up, up there? it would fit, actuly there's probably enough room to put 2 up there side by side. it's huge.
the 12' ramp i have avalible however, would never be long enough to get you up there safely, (Brad? lol), so we'll have to figure something out.
I have thought of a solution to the Brent/driver stand dilema! If we tie a heavy rope around his neck I feel confident I could hoist him up to the top of the trailer, we would have to locate a very, very heavy piece of rope though!

Rob i need a triple fat or xxxl

I ment what I said about doing whatever it takes! We WILL find a safe and secure way to get you up to the same level as the other drivers, ez up, pits, and yes, maybe even some food.

As for the food truck with the "surf & turf", not likely. We will a food stand and maybe even a trophy girl...

Brian, - Count me in for Mod Truck. And 1/8 Buggy.

RAC Results:
Congrads to CR on bumping up into the 1/8 Buggy AMain and then potentially finnishing in the top half of the AMain. They had some trouble with the timing loop so unfortunately the results are not clear but that is an awesome result considering the talent that was there.

I bumped up into Mod 4wd AMain but ruined what could have been a solid mid pack performance with some poor driving and ended up 11th.

We ran a 10 minute mod truck AMain and it was awesome. I think extending electric mains is a great idea.

For anyone who wonders what its like to be at a big race, I definately recommend going to the RAC. Great racing, great door prizes (ask Matt, Brad & CR!) and a great cause.

I'm in for Mod Truck as well and maybe buggy also!

Depending on turnout for 1/8th I might park it for this weekend, and have a relaxing parts breaking day of electric!

Brent if you don't come any chance of us getting your generator for Sunday?
