PS - In the second pic in the article (the one of the car in the BFG pit) I'm in the driver seat. At the moment the picture was taken I was chugging water from a drink tube and peeing through a condom cathedor onto the floor of the race car.

Nice work!

My patients use those catheters at work. They suck. I'm lol'ing hardcore.

Dude, that's awesome, congrats. I still can't believe you won the seat time, now you won the class! BFG must be taking care of you!

Very cool. Congratulations. What was it like to drive? Parnelli Jones said it was "like being in a 24-hour plane crash."

Yea, I'm still in shock, I can't believe I won the seat time, let alone did the race, let alone finished it...etc. etc.

And yes BFG has been very good to me. I never would have been able to do any sort of racing without their support, and every year I'm more and more blown away by the things I've been able to do because of BFG and their tires.

Yea that's a pretty good description, except our plane crash took almost 29 hours.

The cars are really fun to drive and are pretty capable, however, you have to take it so easy on them so they can finish the race. I drove through the night, and at night you end up driving the car about 6/10ths (maybe 7/10ths during the day). The road racer in me doesn't really like that, I want to go 9.5/10ths at least. But the course is so dangerous, and the roads are really narrow at times, you just can't push. You just take it easy and keep moving. The trophy turcks probably don't live by the same philosophy...

It would take me a month to write out all of the sh*t I experienced, but I'll try to give you guys the highlights as I get time.

Much less chance of infection with the Texas style.

Damn that sounds like so much fun. I get giggly when I take a hot lap in the woods with my 4 cyl Jeep.
