    No rally racing for me this season but I'll (hopefully) be there lending a hand in the pits.
    Looking forward to seeing everyone again even if it's from the sidelines.

    I wish. My current situation is dire. I wished for it though. And honestly Sandblast Rally was part of creating this business of mine. I met my first customer there in 2017.

    Got all the race frequencies programmed into my radio and have them named. Just did a few radio checks with three different antennas, two mobile and one fixed, and getting in and out clearly here on the repeaters.

    Excited about helping and know you folks racing are prepping like crazy. Or at least I would be in ocd overload.

    Are you even racing if your prep isn’t all done 48h or fewer before the race?

    FYI - it looks like it will be me and a Matt Robinson doing moto tech this year. I don't know him, but I'll get in touch with him to see what his experience is. I guess be prepared to dismantle your medical kits...

    Weather as of today looks OK. Sunny Thursday thru Sunday. A bit chilly tho. Lows in the upper 20's with high in the upper 40's. This sounds like my last ride about 4 months ago. :1drink

    The winner last year had an avg. speed of @65mph.
    What's the avg when the sand is dry?

    With the riders posing those times, it won't slow down at all. With the heavy rains of last year we had a lot of big puddles to get through and running water bringing up the clay which took some edge off, at least for me it did.

    I prefer dry sand as it's more consistent and does not have nowhere near the ruts wet sand does.

    The dry sand is slower, but the mud holes separate the men from the heros.

    Following up on tech...

    He's done bike and car tech several times and appears to be a car guy. I'm thinking that means a pretty critical eye for rule following, so be prepared. They also made him bike marshal or some similar title in the supp regs, so I imagine that means his word trumps mine.
