I went to the Vorra races this past Sunday. I got asked (thanks Bubba Ray) to take some pictures of the action. It was beyond awesome. Let me know what you think please. It was my first time taking pictures of anything moving this fast. Usually with rockcrawlers I have a few seconds to set up and decide on things. With these suckers by the time you blink, you missed it! :)

This month, the 27th will be another race. They happen at Prarie City in Folsom (east of Sacramento), CA. There will be a jump off going on. For more info check out www.vorra.com :D

I was standing on the middle of that hill and I could hear the announcer say he's on fire. I thought, oh, some small flames, maybe some smoke. Lenney comes over the top and looked like the freaking space shuttle... :eek: And he drove it pretty far until he stopped!

Yeah we were sitting there and the Poor Boys had just had a small fire on the hair pin turn so we thought that would be a good time to get the fire extinguishers out just in case. Not even a minute later here comes #69 with a ball of fire on his ass!! :eek:

Told me I had to sign in:(
Hmmm, you know image station is pissing me off. I wonder if it switched over to the bs where you need to sign up to view? Bad enough they stopped remote linking. I'll see how much space I have on my website and try to upload them there....

Ok since it'll take me forever to upload to my site, just log onto image station as chevycagal86 and use the password vorra. It's an account I have nothing on and really don't care if anyone has access to it.... ;)

What happend to the buggy in the first two pics:nuke:
I never did figure that out. I think a fuel line came loose. He's supposed to call me about me sending me a copy of the pic. When he does, I'll be sure to ask him if they firgured out what happened.

My guess was that it had backfired and caught the air filter on fire, there was also what looked like some sort of cloth hanging off of the exhaust, but it may have been some kind of tape - couldn't tell. There was also some liquid on the ground after we put the fire out, but it didn't really smell like gas.

Oil line suffered a puncture wound unfortunately. He had just grabbed second place from the #49 and was on the heels of first place when this happened to him. I was up in the announcer's booth when he passed and I felt the heat from the fire up there.

Hey Mike, good meeting you too! I'm not sure if I can get out there at all for the next one. I've got two seperate runs on the 26th and the 27th with different clubs so.... I might be able to do the 26th due to some scheduling conflicts, but I know I definitely can't make the 27th. :( That's definitely a good time though!!
