Big Rig Video is done and Posted!

Post by The Iceman » Sat May 02, 2015 11:28 am

First off I would like to say thanks to everyone from this board that came to race, this is where I started and will always remember that! Randy was a great guy and I hope you enjoyed yourself Randy. We missed you at my party afterwards!! :)

Not all videos are done yet but I just finished the Big Rig one! This years Videos aren't as good as last year, for some reason Claas's showroom floor had lightbulbs with a really bad Red Hue!! I did what I could with the video and the loaned equipment and my once a year video editing skills so I hope you'll enjoy it! :P

Too bad you didn't edit out my backside getting in the way! :oops:

I did have a good time at Mid America and wished that I could have made your after party.

Haha, I bet he left it in on purpose. I knew you would comment on that. All kidding aside we really hope you come back again next year, you were a great asset. Maybe we can get your better side next year!!!

I guess it is good then that I didn't have a case of plumber's butt.

Anyways, I was glad to see the big rigs race. Hopefully, I'll have an entry that will actually make it to the race for next year.

Thanks' for the video links.. Ice!

Brian,
Sorry my rig gave you a scare on it's first run..
It must have been the axle block on the trailor hiting on the stoping strip that cause trailor to bounce.
Noted: the wifes truck did the same thing in the red lane as well..
(I'll work on fixing that for next year!)

Randy, I hope the big rigs will see some more racers in the a & b classes next year as well.

It was fun racing the class a big rigs with Shawn, Sporty, Brandon, and my Wife.
To bad I was the only one running a class b rig this year..
There was not much time to build one after the rules were posted for them.
Anyway hope the class b drag race rig was a hit.

All the staff at MA did a very good job with stageing & running the big rigs.
Got 2 out of the 3 rigs back in the mail today ..

:scratching:
Had a best of show trophy packed in with them as well.. must be for my wife and her big rig. ;)

Mark.

Mark, it wasn't your fault you gave me a scare, we made adjustments on the fly and things ran smooth after that. It was a great race and I'm very excited to see it run again next year. I'm sure randy and Greg will update rules for the future. Yes your wife did win best in show, so congrats to her!!!! You and your wife should come race live next year, it's an amazing event to be live at.

Thanks for best of show info..
We did not get to see that on the live stream link after the race...
So we thought the wrong trophy got packed in with the trucks or something!
Had no idea she won best of show with her big rig ( She is shocked to hear that she did.)

Will have to see if we can make it live for next years race.
