I received a call from a from Daryl Yourk Tuesday morning to see if I was interested in attending Global Rallycross. He had won four tickets from the Puma/GRC Giveaway! With last minute flights being $500 to Vegas, Daryl and I decided to make the adventure by car! Our adventure goes a little like this:
First thing find the smallest car in the driveway and pack everything you own: Vinyl Cutter and photo printer included!
Next stop on the list was to run to Delta Camshaft to visit Jon Bodwell
With a few vinyl applications for his CRX race car that was to run at the Ridge Motorsports, a payment of 2 cases of NOS Energy Drinks was the perfect addition to the road trip.
After picking up Daryl at Seatac Airport and running up to Redmond to say good bye to the rest of the ML@S crew that stuck behind it was time to venture to Vegas! We hopped on the on ramp to 520 and sat for an just over an hour making it 1/4 of mile from on-ramp to off-ramp. Great start to a 20hr journey.
Once on the road and the sunset, nothing much was seen until the moon was setting just outside Twin Falls Idaho.
Passing thru desolate roads of Nevada we would come across small towns with great adventure ideas. Unfortunately we were on a mission Vegas! Maybe next time ghost train!
Ely Nevada Population 4088. You really don’t expect to see a 360 Modena.
We made it to our hotel for the 2 days courtesy of Puma. Just in time to catch a wedding out our bedroom window.
Saturday was our day at the track! And Daryl had no problem capitalizing on his Fame of the Grand Prize Puma Winner! We found Matthew Johnson and Daryl got a private tour of Travis Pastrana’s Dodge Dart.
We caught a bit of NASCAR Truck series from the roof top of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Finally it was time for Global Rallycross! Here’s Stephen Stephan Verdier
Ken Block taking his own line for the first corner. Scandinavian Flick?
The man, the myth, the legend. Rhys Millen!
