      Participated in a unique race last weekend. The Roaring Fork Snow Trials. Basically a snow autocross. I did very well and won my class, AWD non-stud tires. There were plenty of fast cars there like 2 Focus RSs and Subi STIs all over the place.

      Here is the winning run. The first lap is a sighting lap, at green flag the hot lap starts.

      DUDE!!! Congrats!!!

      Snowcross!!! Are there any classes for tracked vehicles? (not tires?) Just morbid curiosity......some of these UTV's are getting pretty fast and the snow track tech is keeping up with the power demands

      They did race UTVs with tires. One ended upside down though. It was a real blast!!!!

      Well, I finally beat the Evo. I've been trying different driving techniques and got it right. Left foot breaking into the corners and out. Keeping the suspension as calm as possible and keeping the front tires planted.

      Very impressive.

      I wish the ice here was still drivable. Ice roads were one of my favorite things about Canadian ice fishing. I remember being a cocky teen with my sled (1979 el Tigré). I challenged a guy with a much newer 440 Ski Doo to a match and he said he’d race me, but in his truck. I laughed.

      My el Tigré did over 100 out of the box, and I destroyed him off the line, and for a half mile or so but he ran me down. I was extremely shocked. Should have picked a shorter run.

      Was an older step side F150. At least it wasn’t a Chevy.

      Guess the moral of the story is you should never underestimate something Ford Tough ;)
