Always look forward to your videos and appreciate them immensely!

This culture is so fascinating to me. I follow alot of those top dogs on Instagram in the video. They go there to JUST RACE. Thats it. They break something, and its back to the shops to repair and make faster. It is literally throwing thousand dollar bills in the wind!

Does anyone know, are the wheelies for show appeal or the fast cars just cant keep the front down? Wouldnt they design the cars to keep the wheels down for better straight line runs or? Its seems like these cars are just about the sand drags and not really duning after the fact.

Alot of the top dogs have multiple cars and don't do a whole lot of duning with their fastest cars. they save those strictly for racing and the drags. The wheelies are uncontrollable. too much horsepower, these cars are pushing over 2k+ to the wheels. They are absolutely designed for it. Weights, water tanks, and fuel tanks all in the front to hold them down. They also limit the shocks and travel to keep the fronts down as well. If you watch them when they start to wheelie the front wheels hardly fall down at all because they want the front to stay as low as possible

most of the fast guys wear full gear when they race, hans, helmet, ect. There are guys that easily do 120+mph and don't have any gear on and i think they are insane. Sand is like water. every pass is different, new ruts, different lines, so unpredictable. its pretty amazing how fast these cars are really going. the green car in the video with the camera inside hit 150mph on that run. the day before he did 162mph

The fast guys are getting the front to stay down fairly well. Front mount fuel cells and lead bars. As well as longer trailing arms.
the big dogs are pushing 2,000hp at the wheel.

shit is crazy

Man when I used to go as a kid a ls with a turbo was the hit shit in the early 2000s.
Rhinos were just hitting the scene.

2000 hp to the wheels? Jesus.

when we bought the rzr and went back a few years ago the tech definitely changed.

what’s one of these drag cars cost? 250?
I know if you have to ask, but i wanna know.

Haven't been to Glamis since the mid 80's --- so gotta ask, what's with the quads running mixed in with these cars ? Seems like a great way to die, like jet skis racing flatties, or are they legit contenders ?

If you can spend 250k on a truck you can spend a few dollars on some proper gear.

There is so much more to Glamis then just going straight and sand highway, but thats fine with me, never go to any of those spots, prefer to turn left and right, thats what duning is, and its amazing how many people on holiday weekend go nowhere else than olds, the drags, sand highway and vendors row. Again fine with me if you head out in the morning the dunes are empty even on a holiday weekend.

Unfortunately something bad is going to happen at the drags one of these days. Its not a matter of if, just when. The fastest cars are north of 160 mph now. Would you go to a Nascar race and watch with no barriers or fences and let your kids play in the sand on the front row? I just dont get it.

The tatum at 25 seconds in is one of Ponts fleet, he usually has Paul Tracy drive it, it came back to camp with several rods through the block and fire from the oil hitting the exhaust. Expensive weekend.

i agree with you. we have some fast cars in our group but we are duners, not very fun going as fast as you can in a straight line or up olds but it is entertaining to watch. you are definitely right, someone is going to get hurt at some point. I don't let me wife stand up front with me at the drags when i film and i always try to film towards the front before these cars get wild going through the whoops. Paul tracy was driving one of ponts cars and starting back from pad 1.5 and by the time he hit the drags he was doing over 100, 140mph by the end. too much if you ask me but thats just my opinion. its all fun and most of the guys are respectful and just want to have a good time and entertain the crowd

Those people are either alot braver or stupider than i am, not sure which one. It was crazy taking my car down the drags one time let alone being on a bike or a quad

To each there own. Sooner or later somebodies ego is going to get crushed.
160mph through the bumps is serious business shit gets real ugly at that speed.
The risk is getting awful high to be the baddest mother fucker at the drags.

Pretty much they are out for the show faster they go the more attention BUt everyone has their choices of what to do.Personally i dont care what they do its jsut a few less cars in the dunes.

I almost lost it just before you guys showed up, you guys parked just behind me at the drags Saturday. Happy I haven’t been made famous in any videos yet, lol
Car got sideways on the whoops left side, Ended up heading towards crowd in 4th gear on 2 wheels, and not the rears. Shut it down quick and parked to clean up my shame. could have ended badly

great video by the way

we got a Bieber flag that must be rocked for the weekend if your shit breaks and causes any delay longer then 30 mins
looks like were not the only ones, lol

Shhh! We don't want the rest of the clowns screwing up our dunes. But yeah, I laugh at those who go to the flagpole, swingset, olds, and the store and call it a long day of hardcore riding. Epic ride, bro! Pfft. I'm good with that though. They can stay up there and away from us.

And yeah, only a matter of time before something happens at the drags. Then those will be closed too.

In my dirt biking days, whoever laid it down last got the spoon taped or zip tied to their bike until the next guy eats it.

We have a apron that says "Camp Bitch" on it, if you get towed in you have to wear it for the weekend and cook all the meals and get anyone a beer when they ask. Crazy how hard our friends tried to fix shit in the dunes and make it back under their own power.

When Harvey and Joe asked what’s up with the flag, my guys told them I was a super fan and play his music at camp all night driving them nuts. Harvey made a wtf face and no one told him the real reason.
Joe knows better, lol

I suggested a Biden flag. But figured the not knowing peeps wouldn’t think it’s so funny. Lmao!
Around New Years there was groups literally searching for a dude sporting Biden and F trump flags. Guys were talking about trashing their camp, rigs, rides etc... I was like uhhhh what if it his punishment.

Our group there’s a rainbow flag. I’m still waiting for one of them to pay off a bet he has to fly it on his car to the ledge at sunset.
