I need to add some more. Ivm only running a coup0le gallons of fuel ( havent had the moeny to fill the tank yet) That should help some. I've also got another plate of 1/4 steel I cna add if needed.


Managed a 1st in my class tonight. I screwed up again but 90& of everyone did. It thunderstormed and poured right before we started and the tracks mostly clay so it is was SLICK. I didnt make a turn and had to back up but still $125 and a big trophy so I'll take it. I need to get some more wieght on the rear cuase it noses, but even so it lands really smooth.

Me n the fair director with my trpohy. This pic will be in the paper in the next day or so



the vid

Just a blurp from the artical.

Quote:
"For Donnie Chambers, of Roseville, his interest has only grown throughout the years.

"I started about five or six years ago, but I've watched it for years and have been into things like four-wheeling and mud bogging since I was old enough to drive," he said. "This year I built my truck from scratch, working on it all winter."

Chambers races with a 1988 Ford Ranger named after the website he created when he was 13 years old, OffRoadOhio.com.

He said he's participated in about 20 races this year, winning almost $500. While the cash prize is a motivating incentive, that's not why Chambers races.

"I don't care about placing or the money," he said. "As long as I can hear the crowd cheering for me from inside my truck, that's what it's all about."

Althought it SHOULD say I PLAN to participate in about 20 races this year, not HAVE participated in

Been a while since I updated this. I've only ran 2 races since my 3rd place finish.

I broke a driveshaft and axle shaft at one, and got a DQ at the 2nd for not comming to a complete stop before leaving the track ( my bad and I know better)

Last race of the season is Wed. I placed 13th at the same track earlier this year so now that I have mroe seat time I should be able to bump it up a few places.
