Good luck to anyone who is interested.

It is also fun to see who is improving with every round of racing.

Been thinking about racing my white car. Maybe some MDR & BITD. Been looking into it and getting the Rhino dialed in to meet the rules (nets, lights, etc.). Shooting for the night race on the 18th of October.

1 time was enough for me. I just wanted to say that I did it. I was happy with my 14th place out of 50. I had 11th or 12th place then my rear axle broke on the last lap and I had to limp in. But my fat ass was sore as hell the next day. I am to fat and old for that shit anymore. I was beat up from being tossed around the inside of my Rhino. It made me see how out of shape I am. But it was fun.

I thought about it right after the race.... I got a few (partial) sponsor offers. Money wasnt the issue for me. I thought about building a Race Rhino..... but I am getting old and I have 4 kids. Most of my time is spent with my boys.

Here are a few pics.... The first one is my favorite. That is when I passed Regis Harrington. I think that is after he flipped the first time.

I'd really like to get into racing...is there a class for use w/ no performance mods and the ability to keep a four seater cage/ stock cage on w/ just one seat? What else would i need? nets for the stock Rhino doors, already have 5 point harnesses...and how expensive would it be to get into?

Thanks guys,
Ryan

I thought BITD would let anyone race that can pass tech and pony the entry fee.

If they don't have a class that you fit in they will create a new class.

Is this not true?
