    Friday:
    Heading to our spectator location we managed to put several holes in our tires. Luckily Ben had a plug kit (great gift idea...LINK). We settled into a great spot and were enjoying the race when I noticed what looked like a vehicle fire in the distance. We put our capes on to save the day. Poor racer's quad was completely engulfed. So we decided to take him to his next pit. Well, couldn't do anything as Pete's truck wouldn't start. So first trail repair on his fuel pump. After the racer's team eventually pick him up, we went back to our original location and watched until dark. Then made it back to camp and rinsed off the days dust.

    Saturday/Sunday:
    Headed back to La Rumorosa and sampled the local cuisine which included rabbit. Conducted second repair. Couldn't believe the town auto parts store had 2 matching fuel filters. On Sunday Pete's fuel pump completely quit and his truck had to get trailered home.

    Special thanks to everyone involved. Especially Eric, Ari and Tia Mercedes.
