Vegas To Reno Race - HELP!!!

Okay guys and gals, I'm running out of time and still don't have my logistics together for the V2R Race in August.
I'm looking for pit and chase crews that can help run ahead of the race cars and setup pits (15 pits in all, can be done with 2 crews and 1 chase).

I may have a couple spots open for drivers and navigators also. This will be an estimated 550 mile race that will start on a Friday and end on Saturday, approx. 16-20 hours later, unless there are problems that slow the car down.

The course starts in Beatty, NV and runs back and forth, along the hiway to Carson NV, passing Walker Lake and Hawthorne NV. The course is filled with high speed sections, not as rough as some courses.

Anyone interested. There's no pay, just glory and tons of fun.

We would have to be in Vegas on August 18th for registration, contingency and tech.
The race is the next day August 19th and runs till Saturday the 20th. Awards ceremony is that night I believe.
We would have to have names of all drivers and co-drivers by July 25th, to be turned in with the entry form on the 27th.

After the awards on Saturday night, big party....

I'll keep you posted. I'd be glad to have you and your bro if he wants, be part of this. You've been involved in off-road comp before right? I may see if you want to drive a section. I'll actually need 2 drivers besides myself, but may have another already setup. I'll need some co-dawgs/nav guys (3). There are 15 pits, of which we will utilize 5 for fuel (the others will be repair or emergency pits), which means probably can be pit crewed with 1 or 2 vehicles carrying fuel/tires/spare parts and tools. One crew would be utillized as a primary pit crew and the other would be a "chase/flying crew" that would respond as needed to relay parts or assistance.

The main pit crew would use my Duramax, so that takes care of one vehicle. So we'll need someone that has a vehicle that can run back and forth, carrying parts to other pits. Chase crews won't be allowed on the course, so parts will have to be taken to the pit before and given to another racer to carry thru to the car.

It should be fun, we'll have enough time after the race to have a good party/bbq and get-together for ProwlerNation...

Seth, do you have any flags or signs that could be used at contingency. If we can come up with decals, we can run as "Team Prowler Nation" Or Team ProwlerTalk.Net.
The car number for BITD is 1921.

Sometimes that is what it takes to win, but this race is more a race of logistics. Getting spare parts to the car when it breaks is extremely important. Sometimes, having your fastest drivers on the hiway, hauling parts, is what wins the race. A couple years ago or so, Bipolar Racing lost first place by like 15 minutes I think it was, because they were broken down (fuel system problems). I don't know if parts would've helped them, but maybe.
Troy, are you out there, you have experience running chase for BP Racing on this course.
The car is running an oversize CBR Radiator/Oil Cooler with a Spal fan, so it should keep the engine cool enough. The fuel system is plumbed to minimize vapor locks or any delivery problem hopefully. So as long as we don't have internal engine problems, diff or axle problems, we should be good. The belt is an EPI Severe Duty Kevlar Belt. The cooling for the belt drive system is pressurized via hood scoop.
The course has lots of high speed fireroads and isn't near as rough as some other courses. So breakage shouldn't be as bad....

Todd, are you going to be available during this timeframe? I can probably get another pilot (private jet and stunt), to ride with you...LOL. That way you feel at home...

Seth, you care to get on board?

Remember, we have to make a good showing with Arctic Cat, everyone will be watching this car and race to see what happens. Side betting is pitting us against Jagged X's super built RZR-XP900 (and it's damn fast), Parks Racing RZR (converted 4 that won the SS300) and Mike Lasher's built to the hilt Teryx. Can Am has a couple entries also.... Hey, we are even racing against 2 John Deere Gator XUVs.

Guys, we've got a good chance, lets go kick some butt....
