PARADIGM THE MOVIE from Paradigm Productions on Vimeo.

Derek and I attended the Paradigm The Movie premiere at the OC Tavern in San Clemente over the weekend.

There were over 100 people there to watch some great race footage.  The movie included shots from all over including, Laughlin, Parker, Vegas, and Mexico.  I give it 4 stars and 5 beers!

We also had a great time speaking with Andy McMillin.  He shared lots of great racing tips.

Henderson 2009

Best in the Desert.

Casey always comes through.  After the closures by the BLM he relocated the Henderson Fabtech 300 to Jean, NV.  He set up a great camping area with two access roads, toilets, a trash collection area, and hired water trucks to work everyday to keep the dust down.  Down the road was a great spectator area with plenty of room.  This was another great race by Best in the Desert.

The blading done by Casey actually made racing harder for us.  The speed we maintained took a toll on our truck.  With our GPS scaled down to .15 of a mile, I still could not call out the turns fast enough for Stewart.  If it wasn’t for the dust, we could have passed anyone in our class.  In fact, we passed four 7200 trucks, one class 10, two class 8 trucks including Greg Biffle from NasCar and Rob MacCachren on the first lap.  After being hit by a trophy truck we broke two 3/4″ bolts that keep our rear trailing arms on.  The end with the threads just broke off.

Derek and Stewart made emergency repairs and attempted to drive the truck into the main pit, this was 17 miles away and very dangerous.  After two near misses with high speed collisions they decided to use an access road to repair to the main pit.  We were officially out of the race at that point, only half way done.

The gains our race team have accomplished this year are many but don’t look very good on paper, with our one finish this year being Vegas to Reno. Everything on our new truck is a learning experience, the big question is can we keep it up.  In the past seven years we have finished 3rd place in at least a dozen races.  And in this sport, nobody cares who comes in 3rd.  Our goal this year was to finish 1st or break it trying.  At least we accomplished one of our goals.
