    SST is falling apart at the seams. The SST races are now all part of some other venue and most (if not all) are going to be on pavement with the metal jumps. SST has gone from RG's premier stadium racing series to a side show in less than a year. Clyde Stacy has pulled the plug on funding the program and rumors from insiders say that RG & CS have already got their lawyers doing battle. (Additionally, RG is no longer racing off road as part of Clyde' multi-car team). It will be interesting to see if the series leader gets the big pay off at the end of the series as promised or not. RG may need to focus on winning the rest of the races so he won't have to pay one of the other drivers.

    I watched the Toronto race on TV last week or the week before. IMO it was a joke. A really bad joke.

    I needed to delete a bunch of videos from my hard drive, so I finished these of Gordon and Walch:

    Is Robby headed to the Dakar rally this year with a new rig?

    I don't think so. Around the last Dakar he was saying that would be his last time. He mentioned at the end of the Dakar that he'd be coming back, but I think that was an impulsive comment in the moment. I figured once he sold the hummer it decided it for him.

    IDK, could a stadium truck do the Dakar?

    If I recall correctly Yazeed broke his back at the Hail Rally in that car. Maybe it was just too much for him.

    Been saying it as long as I've been on this Forum (Minus the Toureg period where he was VW's domestic) Nuthin, Absolutely Nuthin compares to the Howl of that 'Murican V8.

    'Course now there are other Dakar vehicles with similar powerplants I don't need to root for RG for the audio stimulus, I'll miss his banter if he doesn't make it though, just plain entertaining guy to watch from my monitor.

    FWIW, Heard the talking head on SCORES shitty coverage say RG was having major issues and is way back, out of contention. This was about an hour ago.
