Another Silver State is in the books, and it was rough in more ways than one. Cody was pleased to grid up 4th in the buggy main, and bump into the Truggy main.
I have to tell you, the conditions were brutal. It went from water every round, to a completely dry blown out track on Sunday. Due to the extremely windy conditions, it just wasn’t possible to water on Sunday. We made some adjustments for the rough loamy conditions, and finished qualifying well, but adjusting to the dry track was difficult. We rolled the dice to stick with the softer settings and paid the price for it. Cody ran X3 Bigblox in the buggy final, and the tires were good, but we needed stiffer rear springs and more traditional diff fluids. I have to give the McBrides credit for making the right adjustments. They had a more traditional set-up and it was obviously better with the pace they had. Sometimes you just don’t know what you have until you throw it down for the main.
It was great to have Yuichi Kanai over from Japan. He enjoys Vegas because this is where he won the worlds in 2000. I helped pit him in his races, and he finished 2nd in the 40+ buggy class.
That’s pretty much all we have to say for now, as we are already on the way to Neobuggy and on a layover in Minneapolis. Neobuggy should be quite different as the surface is more controlled. We are pumped to use last years set-up with a few tweaks to get more speed this year.
Here are a few pictures:
