Doesn’t he roll a 12v Cummins? Not much to go wrong on those rigs. Hope he gets it sorted .

I’m so lost what is going on? Is an rdp member stuck somewhere?
he’s coming to vegas?
More details?
I’m in vegas I get off at 7. I have a truck with a 5wheel hitch or willing to pull a trailer here if he’s within 2 hours from vegas. Just would need to go grab it from the house.

He is a member here. Sounds like he was on his way to a race and broke down, his kids race Jr. Dragsters.

Thanks for all the responses. We made it. Grenaded a sfi flex plate, but racing family stepped up and got a new converter and flex plate in the truck and we were on the road by 6:30pm Thursday. Pulled into LVMS at 12:15 Friday and made our first hit at 1:30. My my boys started turning on win lights. Unfortunately we dropped a valve in the comp car Friday night. Doug Gordon came over and helped tear into the hayabusa engine, but it was soon realized that the car wasn't going to get fixed this weekend. We focused on the jr's and my 13yr old won the race of champions Saturday night. Both boys went rounds and if they lost the other kids had to earn it. So proud of them and the whole team from our little track up here on the coast. Of the 4 classes our team had 2 wins and 1 runner up in the race of champions and 3 or the 4 kids in the 6-9yr old class for the 4 wide final were from our team.
