The earlier roll over was only a spin out .
Lets hope there is no helicopter penalty

Great job RG!

Interesting to see that after Robbys spin in the mud, he pulled directly in front of the next two trophy trucks to come up the road. Didn't really expect that.

WOW! Too many things so wrong with those pits.
Dropping the jack with out looking to see is the tire was even on yet.
Everyone raising their hands signaling that you are done....that's fine except for the guy UNDER the truck that can't be seen....... a dangerous practice.
Dropping the jack..........
Really you have to climb on top of the spare to fuel the truck??? What if you needed to add a spare? Nice place to be if there is a fuel fire.
Did I mention dropping the jack???????
Always room for improvement .
Sorry , I can't get my sarcasm smilie to work .
Looked again, and you are right Larryleghumper, he didn't release the jack. The block used to extend the jack slipped, it slipped because he got in a hurry and didn't place it correctly. Damn near got that one guys fingers. Sorry, that is not hating on Rubs, it is pointing out rookie pit crew mistakes. I've been racing and pitting in Baja for over 40 years, I believe I'm qualified to critique a pit stop. Dropping the back of the car to the ground is a big deal. The chant of a good pit crew is "Slower is faster" takes twice as long to recover from a mistake made while in a hurry than to slow down and get it right the first time.
