I talked with Dave Cole to let him know we want to run Eastern Ultra4 Modified. Maybe fill in gaps with Line Mountain, ECORS, and local one day events.

Still have Oct 19 TREC and plan to hit Nov 16 ECORS in Harlan.

Nice part is the jeep trail rides well. Worst case would be to put a quieter exhaust on it.

That would be cool. Many of the TREC'ers are from Ft Wayne area, so coming to Michigan's parks isn't too bad for them. I know the Snot Rocket guys came to the Pit Trash shoot out. lol.

Yep, I think a problem was TREC was competing with Dirt Riot and was established. With what looks to be the demise of TREC, Dirt Riot might have a chance. But I don't know how big of a turn out they would get.

We will likely have to travel to race. Kinda like if you build a hard core crawler or bouncer and want to use it to its fullest potential, you'll have to travel. The local parks have made it much better, but it's hard to compete with the natural terrain of areas like Rausch Creek, Harlan, Windrock, Canada, and all the cool areas West of the Mississippi.

And you never will if you don't stop fishing & get started on your rig build.

It was the last TREC race of the season on Saturday. We placed 2nd place of 3 in the race, and ended up 3rd overall in points.

With the car in good shape on the last night of prep, we made a list of stuff we want to do for Harlan and next year. On the list was an oil pan skid before we go to Harlan. Turns out we should have done it before this race since I bounced it off a log on lap 2 and put a hole in the bottom about 250' from the checkpoint. Front driveshaft was also snapped.

3rd place had a harder race than us with a blown engine, but still disappointing as I was in first when I broke.

Next race is Nov 16 in Harlan, Kentucky with ECORS. So plenty to do to get the car prep'd.
