    Cars just seem to be Argentina and Chile, so for some reason maybe Bolivia don't like him :lol3

    Rubbie has sold his 2 Hummmmmmmbuggys and all of his support vehicles to a Saudi guy with Cubic mega bucks. Unless he makes enough money off of his Stadium Super Truck races to pay for an entire new Dakar program, he won't be back.

    So does that mean he's pretty much done racing except as a hobby? You know he could still kick ass in Cup if he had the team and was only the driver...

    Maybe we'll get to see him in the two road course events. He was always a force on them, even with a weak car. On a road course, I'd take Robbie over Jeff Gordon any day. And Jeff is always fast. :deal

    Done racing all of that ghey arsed roundy-round foolishness. He's over whelmed with his Stadium Super Truck series and trying to be the next Mickey Thompson (his own words). He is still racing select off road races (SCORE & BITD).

    And, on cue:


    Yazeed and Winocq Crash Out of Ha'il Rally
    They crashed heavily in the sand dune 50 kms into the final stage. The Hummer landed on all four wheels with a hard impact and moved a few meters before stopping. Via his Twitter account in King Khalid Hospital Ha’il, Al-Rajhi declared that both he and his co-driver, Frenchman Alex Winocq, had each suffered one broken vertebrae following the impact.
