    My team is also raising funds for all the expenses with this iconic race. Check out the link and donate to get us on the right track. Who wouldn't want to see a cute girl racing a little stock bug in Vegas ;)

    The only time I've raced at barstow was the first big 9 race they put on there. I never want to go back. 6" front travel and 8" rear just isn't enough to enjoy the course.

    Were slowly building a 5 unlimited now. hopefully it will be ready by next year.

    Barstow is ROUGH. and the sames goes with class 11 suspension. Pretty much nothing! I raced in Ridgecrest, about 250 miles.... and I had never been so sore in my entire life. It was painful! But it's the price we pay. lol I can live with it.

    Does watching events on TV and streaming count for this thread?!

    Worked on the car this weekend!
    Did a lot of tedious adjusting and cleaning but it was needed. Now for some testing time before the Mint next month!
