The course became very dusty after about 30 minutes into the races, so most of my pictures turned out looking like a big cloud :-(.

Some of the better one ...

I'm currently saving up for one. Shouldn't be too long, since the prices have come way down since I first bought my camera.

Some more pics...

Anyone else see the irony?






Cool crawler hauler, in a way...



















The tow truck got up this hill in reverse better than some of the buggys




















Yes that is a NAPA hat.

Great pics Sven. Man I wish we could have afforded the $1600 in diesel to make it out there to race. Funny, they hold the US nationals here in CO and they have 40+ teams show, hold it out east and only 29 show. Interesting

I kinda figured one of them must own the other, just didn't really put it together at the time.
