This is the view from Jon's helmet cam he mounted in the buggy.

We had technical difficulties with that one. Hopefully we get that one working for the Silver State 300.

It recorded something but I haven't been able to open the file. I messed something up when I turned it on. I made the assumption it was the same interface as my GoPro and didn't play with it until the guys were getting lined up at the starting line. Next year I'll take some more time to get mounts right and to figure out how to use the cameras prior to race day. :shakehead::(

The other camera worked great until the guys got out of the car to investigate a noise. When Dave tried to do his belts back up the camera got bumped and then turned off.

Cool footage non the less!
You passed me on the right side somewhere around the 1:35 mark.
Great to see locals down there. I should have done some more research and known your starting position so I could take a pic or two... maybe next year!?

That can be arranged. We over worked our poor guys this year.

Speaking of which, can we borrow it again? I'll tell Dave not to turn it off.

This years footage....

The Pre-race ritual...


Starting Line until the first fire. Watch for the highlift jack to make an appearance as well...


At the three mile mark the boys lost all forward gears. They ended up driving backwards for the next 18 miles. Eventually they came up with this idea...

Looks how my truck feels on a gravel road. . . Except probably twice as fast.

This car has seen 90+MPH on the flats. In the 3-4ft whoops it still goes faster than I care to drive my Jeep on a gravel road. Once you've ridden in a buggy with a tuned suspension it's real hard to go back to leafs or coils.

Alright so 3 times as fast. . . And probably more comfortable, :p

Got nothing on the Posture-Pedic massage of 4 corners of leaf springs though,
