    Hey guys don't know how many of you will be at the Expo in Oct. but Ed, John, Allan, and I will be at it!! Baja Pits and KC Lights have asked us to go!!! I hope that some of you will be in town for it, if you are look for us to be with Baja Pits and KC. Not sure yet if we will have our own table yet or not. Should be a good time, we just went over $9000.00 in donations to the Wounded Warriors!! I hope that this will help get the word out and we can make our goal of $50,000 for the WWP.

    Thank all of you for your support on this!! :freaky

    Scott, I have to say that you are a natural storyteller. You guys came out & got a taste of Baja with Allan & John Jr. You haven't met the other portion of real racing & what it entails. You have an advantage though in having been overseas & in combat. You are going to find many similarities. Racing is 1/3 preparation, 1/3 talent (i.e. skill), & 1/3 luck. Sound familiar ? Crucial decisions have to be made quickly with little info; there's a constant fog of information & misinformation going on. After the fact everything is 20/20 but it won't matter. What's crucial is what you do at the moment. Your adrenalin is running at 100%. Sound familiar? Don't forget that your purpose is Noble & don't forget to have fun.

    That is just what Ed, has been telling me! He has no worries about us finding a way to get to the finish in time if it is within our power. The big thing is the 1/3 luck, you never know when that will runout the door on you. I am a big believer in when it is your time it is just your time, so live life and have fun with it! I would be lying if I was to say that Scott, and I are not nervous about the race but it is just the vehicle that we are driving to try and help the ones that need it.

    Very Cool!
    How did you bend the tubing? I'm assuming frame mounted?
    I don't think 7#'s is too bad, especially when you are enjoying all the light!

    A friend of mine and I built a tubing bender rig out of plywood and an idler pulley. I called a tubing outfit in phoenix and they wanted $400.00 to bend the hoop for me, so we did it ourselves. Chrome moly tube is hard to bend. It took all day to get the hoops right.

    It is frame mounted.
