    Default Recap from the CDBA Race:

    Those Guys Racing had a great time this past weekend at the CDBA boat race in Dexter, Oregon. Our test and tune Friday went well. Made four passes, the best pass hit 9.00, leaving a good feeling heading in to qualifying on Saturday. The Chief put a good tune up in the Trophy Wife and we went out and ran a 9.01 pass. We had the #1 spot after the 1st session. The Trophy Wife's 2nd qualifying pass ran a 9.02. As the boat was going in the water, the weather made a drastic change. Crew Chief Gary Breistig knew that we didn't have enough in it for a .00. We were bumped out of the #1 spot. Hats off to Jeff Vale and Joe LaKamp. Both boats ran 9.00 passes with Jeff Vale taking the poll, that put us in the # 3 spot.
    Sunday. Race Day. First up, Super Eliminator. We made our way through the round, but had some engine trouble during the run. Once we got the boat back to the pits, we were rushed back to the in-ramp for our 1st round of Top Eliminator. Knowing the Trophy Wife was down 2 cylinders, we just wanted to break the beam and get the points.
    I want to say thank you to the other teams that came over to help us out. Thank you to Chris Starkweather and the B1 Racing team along with White Flag Racing for the help. We went out first round of Top Eliminator with a broken valve spring. Also, thank you to the other teams that offer us parts, Stan Tweedy, Gary and Brandon Davis as well as Josh Patridge. Those Guys Racing would like the congratulate the winners for the weekend. Brandon Davis for taking Quick Eliminator, Mike Lewis for Pro Eliminator, Bob Prigmore for Top Eliminator, Josh Patridge for Super Eliminator and Merle Colvin for Modified Eliminator. Also, Bob Fry, a big thank you for the trailer tire. Without you, Those Guys Racing would have been stuck on the side of the road when we lost the second trailer tire. Last but not least, Those Guys Racing would like to thank the CDBA for putting on a great event. The best part of the trip was Saturday night at the Calcutta. Those Guys Racing put up one of our team hats to raise money for the Racers Emergency Support Program. Doug Young took home the hat with his pledge of $200.00 dollars. Thank you to Doug for helping us raise money towards a good cause. Thanks to all of my family and crew for their support. TGR will be back in full force.

    Default Nice to meet you all

    For my first time to run CDBA and the TE class, it was great to meet you all. Was told on Monday by Pres Andy H. That he thought I got the record for being the oldest to receive a drivers license at age 64. Chris Starkweather and myself have a plan to keep my boat from climbing out of the water, so next time I won't have to pop the valve at the 1000' and coast thru the lights in the 9's Great time thanks to all who helped me on my first event!

    This is Mike Miller I'm the mechanic for Naton Tractor I talked to you a few years ago when you were down visiting. My parents used to go to Glamis with you back in the 70's. I would like to see you run your stuff in bakersfield sometime and I would like to talk to you about a few things. Any chance that you might make it down to Ming to run your deal.

    Mike, I do remember our visit at the Naton shop glad you spoke up. I have no plans for Bakersfield at this time. It's an awful long trip from Spokane. Email me at Steve Pauletto @gmail.com or 509 994 1871 anytime.
