What It’s Like To Race An Old VW Beetle And Get Run Over By A Truck
Jalopnik, March 27, 2014
Desert Dingo Racing campaigns a 1969 VW Beetle in off road races in the U.S. and Mexico. We’ve covered them in the past a couple times before. As you can imagine, Beetles doing crazy, dirty things is very appealing to me, so I asked Jim Graham to write up his experience in the Mint 400, in which he gets run over by a “macho shithead” in a truck.

The Mint 400: #MaximumAttack From Dawn Till Dusk
Speedhunters, March 24, 2014
Millions of people drive in between Los Angeles and Las Vegas every year. For most, it’s a mundane task that partygoers dread after a long weekend of living it up in Sin City. It’s also been portrayed to death in Hollywood films, including in the lowest grossing movie of all time. Since I got my driver’s license, I must have done the drive over 100 times.

A Fitting Finale
Inside Track Motorsport News, January Issue
There’s a concept called the “Three Types of Fun.” The idea is that all fun things can be grouped into one of three categories. Type 1 fun is fun as it is happening. it could be go karting with friends or a BBQ on a sunny day. It’s the sort of stuff that pus a smile on your face, but is fleeting. Type 2 fun tends to build character. It might not be fun at the time, but looking back, brings a smile.

Sam Berri Conquers Class 1 & Overall
Dusty Times, July issue
The Memorial Day VORRA race was named in honor of long time VORRA racer and supporter Dudley Tranum who passed away earlier this year. In the late 80s and early 90s Dudley raced his yellow Jeep Honcho in Class 8 and was chased all over the desert by the Dude Crew”. ”

…Jim Graham’s Desert Dingo team (1107) broke the transmisson on lap two. They were stopped in the middle of the course but before recovery could get to them, they were run over by a faster class car, ripping off the front fender. They were towed to the nearest road crossing where they tried to make repairs but fell short and called it a day. And a shout out from the Desert Dingo team – they are looking for a blue and yellow sleeping bag that was lost in the wind storm; it smells like ranch dressing if anyone finds it.”

The weather was warm and the racing was fast at VORRA’s second race of the season. Using the backside of the designated four wheel drive area at the SVRA opens up the track to nearly a mile in length with speeds approaching 80 mph.

DESERT DINGO 2: ONLY
GETTING BETTER
Gearbox Magazine, February 22
One of my favorite stories of all time on Gearbox Magazine is that of Jim Graham. In 2006, he watched the epic gearhead movie Dust to Glory and said to himself, “I gotta do that.” Then he went out and did it. It’s a story so good, Jalopnik asked me if they could run it too. Their syndicated story got more comments that week than the original got pageviews in a month. It was a lesson in things you don’t do again. Some things you should do again, though; Like keep in touch with inspiring gearheads like Jim Graham and the Desert Dingo team.
