Lake Havasu, AZ (May 14, 2016) – Our first AZOP race was in Lake Havasu, AZ. This was about a 6 hour drive from home and one that seemed to take a long time. We had to leave after David got off of work, and ended up not pulling in about 1:00 in the morning. It was still about 105 degrees, even at that time of the night. I don’t know how people live in that town!
So since we got there so late, we couldn’t even pull into the camping area, and had to set up camp in a parking lot next door. We opened up every window and even the toy hauler back door to try and get some relief from the heat. We really didn’t want to be running our A/C while everything else was quiet…I guess that’s camper kindness. 🙂 The race started pretty early the next morning (for the other classes) and we were able to find a spot, and set up camp. We had our team videographer there with us and he was getting all of his stuff ready, while the guys started setting up the other stuff:
The race started pretty close to time, and there were a few in the different classes:
Things started off pretty good. David got a bit carried away with the throttle on the first hill and ended up almost flipping it! This also almost gave me a heart attack. Thankfully, the bumper did it’s job and he was able to hit the gas a bit and keep it on it’s “feet.”
The race went really well, and my guys ended up in first place! Great job, Redneck Edition Team! This was a fun time for the guys! A bit too hot for me, but a great way to spend time together and get the action behind the wheel. 🙂
Big thanks to our great sponsors:
