Default Mud Racing Oct 10-11 Astoria, Oregon

The last mud racing event of the season will be held oct. 10-11 in astoria, oregon.

The wife is pregnant so she said I could drive her Scout in her place. I have wanted to race it since I built it, so here is my chance.

Here is a link to the build of her Scout.

Racing starts at 7:30 pm Friday, oct. 10 at the clatsop county fairground, it runs for 2 nights. This event is a little different than what we are used to. It is not a side by side drag race, instead you are timed as you go down the track. I would much rather drag against another vehicle.

If I get lil' pink Scout back together on time then we will be there.

Thanks Mike. Last night I messed around with a 1" spacer and borrowed fan for mock up. That May be the ticket. If I eliminate the hood hinges and move the radiator in front of the core support it May work out.
