The Dumont trip ?

Well it started out a week ago today at 9:30 pm,I drove down hwy99 50miles north of B-town and spent the night at a rest stop and meet up with my friends there the next morning.So back on the road in the morning heading toward the Tehachapi pass OH SHIT HAPPENED,the freeze plug blew out the back of the engine blockto make it short Biggjim picked me Chubbs and my trailer up and set me up at a Rv Park and had the truck fixed the next day thank you thank you thank you thank you Biggjim,,,,,,HE IS THE MAN.
Dumont was a blast met up with jlineracing20 and lvautopro way cool dudes .The turbo rotax ran great,it ran up every hill I could findthis time I let the motor warm up to full temp before mashing on it My list of victims,,,a shit load of RZR's,a hand full of T-REX'S and a 1000 Cat, man the look on there faces,PRICELESS.Can't wait to get back out there again!

That windshield gives new meaning to "tear off"... That should have been an easy build for an upolstery shop eh? Heck that could be made for the sides too for cold weather runs or put around the kids. Glad da motor ran well must make ya feel all warm inside!! WEll that and some jack.
