El Mirage - 2008

What a great weekend overall. First trip back to California after moving down here to North Carolina and we rocked out at El Mirage for a great weekend of racing. Hooked up with my pal Dawes and we drove out to the desert to camp for the weekend and work the pits with the guys from a San Diego based racing team the Bean Bandits. Julio Hernandez or you can refer to him by his shop Lefty's Speed Shop built two great cars that run in the land speed races. One of the cars was having issues and his new one, the belly tanker was doing some shakedown runs to get ready for next season and the finished build. All in all, the whole crowd was cool as hell and I made a slew of new friends. Looking forward to seeing those cats next season at Sturgis and then on Bonneville. Check out Jake's truck above, she was running good and they are looking to break 106 mph record with a production truck and stock flathead motor.
