Sorry but I have to bow out. This weekend snuck up on me. I'm in the middle of remodeling a bathroom and my father in law is having some health issues so I haven't had time to put anything together. 

  • Sorry to hear it. Maybe, and and Smitty can share the driving on his team! — 72_Chevy_C10

Hey Guys,

Things are looking good for the race tomorrow.  I unboxed the trucks that I've received and they all look good...no damage during shipping. And everyone has been weighed in and there will be no pink trucks racing tomorrow  (meaning, you are all okay on weight).

There are several teams that weren't able to get their trucks ready for the race. But, never fear, you guys will all have a truck in the race to pull for! CrazyTruckerDude and Jav74 will have trucks supplied by me. And, Smitty and DadVBall will be sharing the driving duties on a team built by myself and Traction Event. What should that team be called? Sloppy VBALL, maybe?

I was going to do team pics today, but it was rainy and kinda yucky here today, so I'll get the team pics up tomorrow morning, along with the bracket. Since it will be about a 16 truck field, I do all of the racing tomorrow night...we'll have a good ol' Saturday Night Shootout! 

Good luck, Everyone...and thanks for racing!

Here are the teams. There are 15 trucks in te field, so I'll throw a filler truck in there so everyone has someine to race in the first round.

And, this is what you'll be racing for...this custom '56 Ford F100 Gasser.

  • I'll make up the bracket a little later so you can see who you'll be up again st in the first round...and, don't worry, you won't race yourself — 72_Chevy_C10

My first customs. I guess FTEs really matter.  Is it true those axles only come out in 2006 - 2007 and 2009 - 10? 

  • You want the early ones...I've bought more Chrysler 300's and Beetles than you can shake a stick at — 72_Chevy_C10
  • Good job with your trucks though, Big Poppy! A few little tweaks and you'll have them sorted! I've written a bunch of build threads on here, if you haven't already looked through them — 72_Chevy_C10
