Rain, rain, go away!

The rain's gone - its the darned water that's the problem . . .  :|

The radio broadcast from the USFRA today did not announce any times from course 2 due to equipment issues.
Due to this, I'm posting before Steve to let you folks know how his Rampage did.

He ran a 131.xxx on a 106.xxx record and the truck is in impound.

He got to impound after I left so I did not get any pics of this MAJOR accomplishments.

CONGRATS STEVE and GOOD LUCK tomorrow!

I saw this pic on the USFRA FB page showing impound and was wondering how he did.  Hit it hard in the morning!

Steve, good luck on that return run! Here's to you!!!!!!

I talked to Steve this morning, and he ran a 129.xxx, for a new record!!!! He was pulling the air dam, and going to see how it ran that way.
