    I posted a pic of my wagon on the RG thread here, but just found the winner's dashcam from the main event on New Years Day.

    The short story: About a fifteen year old tradition here in the Central Valley of California, where ElDorado's seem to rule the roost. It is a $500 claiming race to keep the ringer cars out, and Phil lost his winning yellow car just after the trophy was handed over. 25 cars showed up; 11 in the main event; we finished about sixth.

    Our wagon was down on power all day with cooling issues and we lost the motor with about four laps to go in the 20 lap main. It was a great day with my 16 year old son as my codriver for the first time.

    Hell, just watch the first fifteen seconds.....
