Finally got one!
 
I wanted to share a little good news with you guys.

I've won more than my share of local races, set track records etc., but 2 weekends ago. ( August 24 and 25) I finally won 1st place at a national event which was in Transfer, PA.

I know you guys don't keep up with mud racing, but I promise you any time you win at a National event you earn it. 99.9 % of the time it's dominated by only a couple of guys and as you know most of those are the rich kids racing with Daddys money! lol but true.

I made the 24hr round trip alone and not even the flat tire that ripped the inner fenderwell and wall brace out of the trailer while driving through Canton OH on the way home spoiled my trip.

The truck still has more in it and I'm slowly getting it dialed in.
One of the cool things was almost as soon as I was announced as the winner my phone blew up from calls and text from friends all over the country and my facebook lite up with messages from people following the races. I got calls and text until about 2:30 am then started again early the next morning.
It was a good night to win because my motor builder / sponsor was my pit guy for the night so it was good to get a win with him there.
He also had another truck win and set a national record in a different class. Good weekend for him too.

It sure makes all those long hours or working on the truck and thousands of miles traveled worth it for a little while! lol

Wabb-

Good job man. Spoken like a champ.... you should be rewarded for all the hard miles & nights in the shop. You are the epitome of a racer who devotes himself to the sport. Proud of you. You earn it. Scooter

Thanks guys. I don't like to brag and that's not my intent, but I always like to hear how all my fellow RJ friends do so I figured I would share it with you guys.
One other bit of good news is tgat I go into the finals in a 4 way tie for 1st place. Whoever wins the last race will be this years National Champion in my class.

If I end up in the top 3 for the year I'll be pretty happy with that.

I'll at least post some pictures for you guys when I get a chance.
