Unofficially it appears the 6031 will take the overall at Rage by 1:01 over the 6061. The rest is a mess and good luck figuring it out with SNORE! I'm tapping out.

Ok I can't help myself ... I attached my calculations with the results provided.

Wow...great turnout for TL!!

A lot of pub came from this race especially with Matt Martelli and Maddie W (a 16 yr old desert racing phenom) from PRP seats racing against each other. Lil Spitz in the driver seat and pops in the right seat!

Well Rage is in the books! 11 trucks and some great racing over the 2 days with some great folks. Currently trying to get results information from SNORE who have been less that willing to participate. Regardless, here is what I have and being 'unofficial' it seems some numbers could change. Example Spitz says they completed 5 laps but scoring only had them for 4 so the top 3 are pretty much set.

Day 1
1st - Louis driving the 6061
2nd - Kamren Woodward - 6031
3rd - Kevin McKeown - 6028
4th - Josh Cobb - 6066
5th - Jacob Spitz - 6021
6th - Steven Brink - 6041
7th - John Slavic - 6076
8th - Elliot Slavic - 6069
9th - Maddie Wedeking - 6099
10th - Matt Martelli - 6009
11th - Mark Harber - 6073

Day 2 gets tough but it looks like Josh Cobb took the win for sure. Next Kamren Woodward and Kyle Ahrensberg should be 2nd and 3rd. as for the rest, I'm going to wait on results. I did see McKeown took the green flag on day 2 but knew there was a large crack in the trans and pulled off so not to risk further damage.

Stay Tuned ..

Race Updates & Event Photos / 6048 Race Report - Pahrump 250
« Last post by vp223 on December 08, 2017, 05:17:18 PM »
The 6001 and 6048 are the closest to NASCAR's version of a two car race team. Jake's Fabworks preps both trucks, we run the same radio frequency in the races, we share crew members in the pits and Mike and Bret work together on pit strategies.

So going into the final race knowing that one of us was going to be the champion created a dynamic we hadn't had all season.
We usually eat together, talk race strategies, and enjoy some fun time during race weekend, but for Pahrump there was little time spent together before the Green Flag.

The 6048 had to accomplish two things to become class champion, beat Todd and take either 1st or 2nd place otherwise Todd wins.

Our strategy was to keep a healthy pace while taking care of the truck during the first 100 miles because this course can inflict some serious damage if you push too hard. The last 150 miles we would evaluate our position versus the 6001 and decide how hard we needed to push the truck.

We got a flat in the first 3 miles that put us behind a bunch of UTV's and without any wind to move dust off the course we found it extremely difficult to drive it back to the front. The rocky course and low visibility really reduced our ability to make up the time lost. That dust just hung in the air!

We did make some progress but having two more flats on the course and then having extra pit stops to take replacement spare tires would never allow us to truly give the other TL's a good race. We had a late chance to put it on the podium when we passed Jason Cobb but another flat erased that opportunity.

Congratulations to Todd and Mike on the Championship and to Greg Bragg for putting that truck out in front for a long time. The class will have some great racing next year with Bragg, Winner, Cobb and others. I think Cobb has a 2nd and 3rd in the championship so 2018 might be his year to take the top spot.

Thanks to Jeff Mortis and Challenge Financial for all the support this year. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

That is one tire change!


Stat of the day:

I was looking at the Camburg Award winners and we were not on the list this year like we were last year. So I crunched some numbers and found we missed the top 10 by just 2 minutes and 20 seconds!! Jeff had the quickest time of the season over Todd by 25 min!

6048 - 43:49:31 - 44.1 mph
6001 - 44:15:16 - 43.6 mph

#10 on the list was Ryan Hancock in the 6100 class with a time of 41:27:57.
#9 on the list was a class 10 car with a 41:03:54. #8 is Steve Kovach with39:45:46 and we all know how fast that team is.

What y'all think about that?  :D

I think one Norra or Baja 1000 is the same amount of racing as an entire BITD season !
