    Post Fun-Run and Pre-Race pics… we fuckin RALLIED for our test lap… crushed the sump plate, broke a fox shock, and did some serious denting to the bottom of the pan… the guys at Sletten and Empi came over and insisted we let them help us get a skid plate on there. Thank goodness for that and for them. They helped us a TON. HUGE thank you them!! We wouldnโ€™t have a had a pit crew or half the tools and parts we needed, or any rescue for the race without them. ย that course was ROUGH. We know now why everyone else was keeping their car fresh for the race. Maybe we could have lasted another lap if it was fresh… after rich Sletten welded a skid plate on for us, we went toย tech (what a joke that was) and learned the fan hub had stripped on the fun run too… that almost ended it. That was late the night before and we were all insanely disappointed and thought we may not get to race…

Iโ€™ll let John and Audrey tell you how the race went but suffice to say it was a roller coaster on and off the course. Lots was learned and spirits are high!

    the Empi/Sletten guys came in and said no way, we have all the stuff and time to be able to ย fix it – so they fucking helped us put a new fan and alternator in with about 30 seconds to spare!!! DAMN! What an up and down of emotions we had there ๐Ÿ˜… JJ and I got lined up and started 15th in line for Class 11 ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

    We completed 1.5/3 Laps. Which was better than other Class 11s… one of the empi guys only made it a few miles of the 30 mile course. We got one flat, around mile 3/4 and we had to clean out the air filter several times… we got nerfed by a class 5 car on the driver side, and apparently rear ended- but we were being thrown around so much anyway we donโ€™t even remember that. Ultimately the starter finished us… we had to keep pushing it to get it started through all that dirt and hills it died, and the car was already beat to shit and the oil light coming on every whoop. Oh yeah it was mostly whoops, and boulders all over the track. Intense doesnโ€™t start to explain it ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    none of the lightweight stuff broke or failed us. We broke another shock on the front in the main race. Oh yeah JJ pulled a bilstein off his bus after he broke the one on the fun run ๐Ÿ˜… that one did great!

    it was so fun but this course was also sooo intense!!! Wow… crazy!! Huge thanks again to all the Empi and Sletten and Shreddy guys for all the help and pit assistance, ย tow in and radio borrow/communication. You guys ROCK!! Canโ€™t wait to see you again at the next race!!!

    Damn that course does look rough and to take that many racers out. Looks like an awesome weekend with all the smiles! The race damage is “just a flesh wound”.

    I got a few messages about your car this weekend! People love it. Also multiple people called the race โ€œgnarstowโ€ haha! I guess Barstow has a reputation for being rough! Good work you guys! Canโ€™t wait for more

    Jeremy 11it was a pleasure meeting you, you broke a shock quicker than I thought in the rear and the reason the front shock broke you need to put the stock snubber back on the front end. I will be happy to help you any way I can, NO one knows these cars like I do spending 46 years winning class 11. I forsure will help you with your shocks to help turn it into a great ride. Glad you got a skid plate on there. I stopped by your pit on the way out Saturday but no one was around. Air cleaner is huge, UMP all the way and you will need the angled solex to 3in that fits under deck lid. Like I said I didnt want to flood you with things you need to do but will give it to you straight what works what doesnt. Longer 12in fox shocks 12 in look in Race dezert.com for used ones you can buy new but I will help you set them up. We will be debuting our new 11 at Glenn Helen the 31st of July, hope you come to the 2nd race of the empi shoot out. Skid plate up front very important and Snubber essential especially when it calls it out in black and white in all the rules clearly. Keep your head up you will get there. not pretty but won 95 percent of the races it went to desert and short couse
