Hurricane Harvey has made a damn mess in the south and the world is doing everything it can to assist in the clean-up and preservation of what it has left behind in it's wake. Farmtruck, myself and our entire team are doing our part to raise awareness that our furry friends are also in need of our assistance and to not forget that their lives are also affected. Animal shelters are full and families who were in fear of their own lives had to leave their pets behind in order to save themselves. We urge you to make donations to a shelter, charity or support systems of your choice so that our non-human friends can once again find normalcy in this ever changing disaster. - Team FNA
Well it was only a matter of time before we decided once and for all which vehicle was quicker out of the Farmtruck and the Dung Beetle. We had the chance to answer that age old questions this passed weekend at Outlaw Armageddon in Noble, OK at Thunder Valley Raceway Park. Farmtruck and myself decided that the first race would be all out, everything that he had and that I would run him on low boost, that was a big mistake. The Farmtruck is what it is and we know it works, it doesn't break and it hooks on dirt road with the tune we have in it, The Dung Beetle just didn't have enough on low boost we had other issues with it slightly bogging off the line, excuses, excuses, the little VW did very well for the small problems we incurred :) so we went for a round 2 with The Farmtruck's Nitrous turned off and me on high boost which is around 24lbs. The Dung lost again but this time only by a couple cars rather than 50 but again found issues, she never went into high boost and still bogged off the line, she should have hung he hoops high. We'll get her all figured out and see if Farmtruck wants to play again, but two losses in a row is a clean sweep! So for now I'll go back to the garage with my team of tuning gurus and see if we can't get that Dung lined out for next time.
I want to thank Chris, JROD, Baylor and the Misfire Motorsports Team for all the help this weekend, usually Farmtruck is out there helping me backing the car up and getting me in my tracks but these guys stepped in to help. We have great people around us. Also thanks to all of the fans and spectators who came out to watch all the racing for Outlaw Armageddon, it's truly an awesome event that brings every serious racer and race fan to the middle of America to battle it out and I'm honored to just be a part of it.
For those who think that Street Racing is dead outside of Street Outlaws in the 405, you'd be wrong. Big Rob has been capturing 405 Street footage for about 10 years and he hasn't stopped covering the action and it's not likely that he'll stop any time soon. Take a look into an evening of digs with Big Rob and the men who risk their lives and their cars on one of the sketchiest roads in the 405. Check out that shut down!!
We didn't care if it was a chassis car or a full steel Nova. We just wanted to race that night! Many thanks to Coon for giving us a race and Advanced Engine & Machine for helping us get the truck ready to race that night. It was a couple sleepless nights and over night driving but it's all worth it, win or lose!
The streets filled up quick in Mexico this passed weekend when the fastest cars in American drove south to figure out who has the Street Race game sewed up. Much like most of the Cash Days in the past, the local police knew the spots and the times needed to be in the perfect spot to catch the unsuspecting racers but unlike most of the Cash Days this one ended in an arrest when Jerry Bird and Shane in his Vega were caught red handed on the big end.
The Farmbird dominated the drag strip on Street Outlaws for Mega Race, against Aaron Kaufman. Here she is making a full bottle pass down the 1320 up against Aaron Kaufman. Aaron wasn't ready for this bird but I'm sure he's preparing for a rematch.
DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDDOS! This wasn't the smartest of our ideas but it was an experience to say the least. Farmtruck and the Mad Scientist really thought they were going to prank me and give me a scare. Well, they were f'ing right! I wasn't really in the right state of mind after taking that thing for a spin. I was just thankful to be alive and not going 300mph. There were lots of things that could have gone wrong but by the grace of Jesus, nothing did. It literally felt like i was getting raped by physics, there's was nothing I could do to keep my legs inside the ride at all times. Take a look for yourself and you decide if you would ride. - AZN
Weeeelll our first trip to Australia might be our last considering the fact that we couldn't contain our excitement long enough not to hang outside of the car, yelling SUMMERNATS!! Seemed innocent enough but we were smart enough to know that, we don't mess with people who get paid to mess with people, so from this moment forward we obeyed they law, the officer and kept our hands, feet and voices inside the ride at all times. Watch for the full effect of Australian Authority.
