2017 Parker 425 YouTube videos are up!

Post by Cactus Red » Wed Feb 08, 2017 12:15 pm

Nuther great time at the 2017 Parker 425. Spec-tater'ed again this year out at North Well. Got some good video at three places. Turn up the volume and listen for the sounds of the trucks as they approach.

The course was it's normal brutal self - over a 50% attrition rate. Times were down as well - the 3 lap best time was over 7 hours.

And if you didn't know, Casey Folks, the driving force behind Best In The Desert, passed away in January after a stroke.

May the whoops be smoothed out, the dust settled down, and the track fast, Rest in peace Casey!

All is well on the home front. Work has gone crazy - we're an all defense aerospace job shop, and the orders have started pouring in. That's a good thing, we give thanks to President Trump for that.

I only go to the 425 and our local Prescott Rally the first week of Oct., the other BITD races are too far away to day trip. May go work the Parker Challenge this year tho - we"ll see what's up in Oct.

And, I'm gone again for a while on the board, will update things along the way (like ANOTHER set of ball joints wearing out at 98500 miles).
