    ^^^^I know just what you mean. That shit can really get in your head. Not always a bad thing though. I had to learn my respect the hard way and got real lucky. Still love racing though!

    P.s Thanks!!!

    Thanks, man. The truck is already repaired, aside from the need for '32 rear bumper... and should have a replacement for that on Sunday (thanks, Garry). I also got some expert advice which suggests that my rear coilover pre-load likely contributed to the hard right when I shifted, so I'll get that sorted out before the next race.

    My pleasure Mr.Q! I have some new pulleys ordered and they just might be on the doorstep when I get home tonight. Hopefully next race we will have to put somebody else on camera duty and they can take MY pictures! HAHAHA! You know James and I always enjoy hanging out with you maniacs!

    Sorry about your mishap and im glad your okay :).I was fixin to roll into the water box in that same lane behind you when your truck hit the wall.It looked pretty scarey from my view ,but im sure your view was more intense :eek:.I was kinda worried that you got into sum oil and was puckered when i went down the lane a few minutes later ...

    Thanks for all the pic's . I couldn't make it this year and was out of town. Seems I really missed some good old fashionheads up racing.I will plan on it on the next one for sure. Blake sorry to hear about the mishap but lucky the damage was confined to a small area. Carl and I headed to Austin this morning for the Strugglers event so possibly some of you will be there.
