February 18, 2014, Felton, Calif. — Desert Dingo Racing announced today that Mad Media has signed on as chief sponsor for the team’s first race of the 2014 season – the legendary General Tire Mint 400, presented by Polaris which takes place March 12-15 in Las Vegas. Over one thousand of the world’s top off-road championship competitors will do battle in twenty different classes of vehicles across the brutal and unforgiving Mint 400 racecourse in front of thousands of spectators and race fans. Crowds in excess of forty thousand are expected to attend the festivities on Fremont Street East as well as The Mint 400 race – which are free to attend.
The team got together in Roseville today at Wallentine Motorsports to continue buttoning up 1107. Rear fenders go on tomorrow and minor tweaks continue. It gets wrapped the end of next week. I’m working on the logistics guide and hero card design this weekend.
Our Bilstein shocks arrive this coming week. The beam will be painted. Heck we even ordered a new filter for the Parker Pumper. Brian Wallentine got some shots from this weekend’s work.
We had our first meeting of the 2014 race season earlier today at Wallentine Motorsports in Roseville. I gave my standard St. Crispin’s Day speech then Romy got down to business mapping out what needed to happen with 1107. We kept the talk short and got right to work on the car. Here are photos from the work day.
We’re returning to race the Mint 400. One of my favorites.
VORRA has announced it’s 2014 race schedule, and we were waiting on it to lock in what races we’ll be doing. With that announcement, we’re looking to do five races this year, kicking it off with the awesome Mint 400 in Las Vegas in March, followed by the three VORRA desert races and then returning to (win this time) the Baja 1000 in November.
