GREAT WEEK BUT NO WIN AT RUNOFFS
After experiencing some bizarre issues with the car all year we realy thought we had the car ready for the Championship race. We continued to have a couple wierd occurrances thoughout the week but managed to start the race in 2nd and proceeded to run away from the rest of the field. We lead every lap with a comfortable margin......until the 2nd to last lap. In turn five we lost all oil pressure to the engine but decided to continue anyway. In turn eight the engine blew. It was a horrible kick to the groin but that's racing. We did everything right on the car and Kevin drove a truly awesome race. Read all the details in the NEWS tab above.

We are building two new engines for the car for next year that should be better than anything we have ever built. They will finally have aftermarket connecting rods that were made legal a couple years ago. They should be lighter, stronger and cheaper than the OEM rods. They should also have aftermarket oil pump internals as well. We will also probably take advantage of the new brake rule as well. We don't expect those to make the car any faster but it will definitly reduce cost and simplify things.
We have decided to sell the 1954 Rolls-Royce Bentley R-Type. It is nearly perfect and deserves to be used more than we use it. To see all the details about this beautiful classic, go to www.RuckRacing.com/54Bentley.asp.
We are very happy to thank our sponsors for their support. Although we have been approached by numerous companies we only accepted these products because we use and believe in them. Raxles half shafts, Ishihara-Johnson crank scrapers, Jeff at Special Projects Motorsports, and Hasport motor mounts have great products and have been great sponsors. We especially want to thank Cory at SloMotion for dyno ECU tuning, AEM Electronics, and Hoosier Race tires for their support without which we could be so successful.
