Why just to spectate? Truck not running. I was going to go but I guess they do not want stock trucks there either.

Still have things to finish on the truck, will be ready for may 19. You should call the guy because I think there is some stock type classes. I know there is a 2wd class that is not listed.

stock 4x4=class 1 rules. From what I remember about those rules it is not exactly stock. I did talk to the guy running things and I suspect there might be some issues with this.

Todys the day. I am headed out for a bike ride and will see how that goes. If it ends soon enough I think I just might try and make it over to the mud run. I think the jeep is ready.
