Tax Payer Funded Racing 2004 Tacoma - Mint 400

Brought our 04 Tacoma out to try our hand at the biggest off road race in the United States. Unfortunately broke an axle shaft somewhere around race mile 65. Wasn't sure what the problem was and limped it around to finish the first lap. Looked it over in main pit and couldn't find the problem so went back out and after another 5 miles or so was able to narrow it down to the axle.

Decided it wasn't worth going farther out on the course and getting in other people's way, getting stuck, etc so we called it a day. Aside from the axle the truck did great, bummed it didn't go as planned but was an awesome experience.
