I just seen a video clip after the streaming happy hour a little bit ago and it showed what happened in that section. It looked like he flopped on his side backed up a little, got it upright and went back at it. Well it was kinda upright....he was on at least 2 wheels.

Had a good qualifying run other then the flop at the beginning and getting hung up, havent timed the in car footage yet but estimates are 30-40 second loss.

starting 43 off the line so 22 row.

The car is being torn down and race prepped tonight and tomorrow.


we will try and get the onboard footage uploaded soon but no promises as the internet sucks.

well we just timed the on board camera mike lost 1:20 by flipping and getting hung up so if he would have not made a mistake he would have qualifed top ten.

would have put him at 5:10 on the woulda shoulda coulda time sheet

The flop and recovery was amazing to see in person. He was on his side for what seemed an eternity and I was sure he was going to DNF. He slammed reverse and came back out of it and then struggled some to get his line right. Then he smoked the rest of the course.

We just reviewed the entire course outline. Gawd this place is HUGE. There's going to be lots of high speed desert sections and I expect Mike to eat up many competitors.

On the trail riding side of things, Jesse's buggy smoked a trans today and he is done for the week. We had a couple days of great wheeling and there is lots to see. There are thousands of people on the desert floor and many in 6 digit $$$ rigs. Simply amazing. If you ever decide to come out here, don't plan on dressing your Sunday best. The dust settles on everything.
