I'm afraid I'm a bit behind on my races.

Good Things Come From Ramona

After the LOORRs race in Primm, Sean proceeded to tell the whole race-dezert forum that I think the Trophy Kart kids are the best thing since sliced bread.
It's true.
I'm jealous.
All I did at their age was ride my bike around the neighborhood and I totally admire these kids.
Here's the problem-if I've met the kids (or their parents) I totally root for them. I've only met a handful of people so far, so I don't know what I'm going to do at the end of the season when I know everybody!
But this past Saturday, it was all about Ramona. (Ok, I know Dave Mason isn't from Ramona, but his mom did tell us that he was practically living in Ramona while he brand spankin' new TK was being built just down the street from us.)
So meet your top 3 finishers from Saturday night's race.

Connor Hart
Brandon Arthur in the "Flyin' Banana Jr."

I have some great racing pics to post, so stay tuned...

Lucas Oil Off Road Race Series - Round 1

Where else does a kid get a chance to drive right over a hay bale?

One of my favorites.

I've learned if you just wait long enough in one spot, you can usually get one of these shots.

Just me being nosy.

A huge thanks to Larry Job for letting me hop inside his buggy for the driver's perspective shots!

It doesn't get much cuter than this!

I'm no expert, but...I do know you can't get too much further like that or...


We'll have all images up on our website by mid-week.

Back to our regularly scheduled chick posts

Although its had quite a varied history, in its short span, this blog is actually quite an accurate representation of me. My interests are quite varied - from art to the outdoors and lots of things in between. I went from showcasing pictures of pretty vintage items in my etsy store to displaying photographs of dirty race vehicles. And I love it. And I love this picture above.
I love the vibrant colors. I love that it screams, "summer!" And I love that it's a freakin' watermelon on a skirt. And in case you didn't know, it has a vintage twang to it. It seems Anthropologie teamed up with the company in control of Vera Neumann designs. Vera was a very popular designer in the 60's and 70's. Best known for her design of scarves, she also designed apparel, fabric, dinnerware and kitchen towels. When I saw this skirt it reminded me of my first Vera purchase: a bright pink vintage kitchen towel I picked up at the antique store quite a few years back. It was then that I fell in love with all things, "Vera." The watermelon skirt might have to be a special splurge because I'm pretty sure it's destined to become a classic and coveted vintage piece one day!
