Never read that in the rules? I don't care, I don't think MORR would turn any trucks away for a stupid rule like that. Especialy with the truck count.

That's almost the dumbest rule I've ever heard. Ha, but I'll stop in and say hi!

What is the rule? Technically they are all illegal right?

Tough weekend for DSR in Bark River. Saturday in Stock Truck, the 505 Ford had a severe suspension issues in the rear, which in turn destroyed a shock and the rear shock mounts and down tubes. The crew worked all night and rebuilt the whole back half of the cage, and had her going for sunday, only to be plagued by motor issues. In the end, two DNF's for the 505's debut race.

On Saturday, the Formula 4 Bronco, 400, was running strong in 3rd place, when he was hit in the rear half way through the moguls and rolled over. The 400 was airborne the first roll, as he landed hard on his roof, and rolled once more onto her side. The truck that hit the 400 stayed on the gas and ran the Bronco over mid roll, and sky rocketed into the air and landed on its roof. Driver Alex Hinze was okay.

On a side note, Dale Off Road had a rough weekend in Stock Truck, with driveshaft issues. In Super Stock, they made 2 solid runs.

Like to thank the crew of DSR and DOR for helping and wrenching, and a huge thank you goes out to Curry Custom Fab & Welding for the portable welder and torches. Couldnt have done it with out you guys!


Here's some pictures and a video link to alex's rollover.




































The Bronco on the road to recovery for Crandon


Our buddy Matt Dale getting sideways in the super stock, he also drove the 577 stock truck.


If you guys feel the urge to get a Dent Side Racing shirt, PM me. We should still have all sizes left...


Next race is Fall Crandon. The Bronco will be there, but the Stock Truck is still up in the air with funds, and me starting college on monday.

I guess I never updated about Fall Crandon!
We left the #505 home, just because the motor was toast and I was straight up out of funds.

The #400 Did well on saturday. Hinze was holding well in 3rd, until he got gathered up with two supertrucks in the corner before the finish line. He spent the rest of the race trying to catch up to the 3rd place jeep, and had the pass in the gravel pit corner on the last lap, where he bit hard and biked it up hard and had to save it. Took a respectable 4th place finish.
Sunday, we were staged up ready to go when we discovered that the Bronco had no rear wheel drive. Instead of racing and risking another set of front gears, we put her on the trailer. Diagnosed it as a broken output shaft on the T-case.

Here's some pictures.









Off season plans include quite a bit. In the Formula class, a 4-link with coilover rule went through, so we could be possibly 4-linking the rear of the bronco. If we do, expect this bored to be tapped dry of 4-link knowledge. Plans for the bronco also include extended radius arms and coilovers in the front.
Plans for the Stock Truck include a stronger Windsor, rebuilt trans, new gears and spool, redesign of the back half of the cage, and more. Just a good clean up of all the rush mistakes we made on the truck. We should have a strong team next year, and we hope to gather up some wins. We are also excited to bring on a new sponsor, Yoopershirts and the new energy drink, Drink U.P. If your from michigan, you'll understand.

Thank you!

Here's some more pictures from fall crandon..

Our buddy Matt Dale in Super Stock




Me with Matt in staging. Lots of super rad trucks in Super Stock. These guy's scream.




Jerry suffered a broken back from this wicked roll in Super Truck. Happened in the infamous Corner 1 at Crandon. They cut the cage off with the jaws of life and had to chopper him out from the track to the hospital. He's recovering and will race again.



Alex in the Formula Bronco:
