    June 21st Sledpull in Idaho Falls

    We called Larry last week to make SURE that you guys would all be getting paid and he said that you definitely would. We offered to join up with the DHRA to bring you guys a paycheck and we just wanted to make sure that was going to happen. Hopefully those of you that placed will be seeing them soon

    Everyone,, read up!!!!!

    We're in as long as the date doesn't conflict with one of our other shows. We could run the show just how we run ours (3 diesel classes) if everybody wanted to. If somebody could find a little extra gas money I'm sure we could even get the Smoker Tractors and both Detroit trucks there. I've never pulled or even seen the fairgrounds in Gooding so I have no idea what it is like (or even if it's a 300' track). Burley and Rupert aren't too far from Gooding and they both have fairgrounds. I'm sure I could get you guys in Rupert but Burley is a pretty tough cookie to crack. I've got ties with all of the radio stations, sooper ads, thrifty nickels, etc. around so I would be happy to get that going for you. We can even use our poster people if needed. Let me know how I can help...

    Everyone,, read up!!!!!

    Tell you guys what, put something like this together and count the United Pullers in (just as long as it doesn't conflict with one of our pull dates). Just as a heads up though, we have tried doing shows in the Boise area and never had good luck. The best turnout we ever did have over there was in Meridian. Probably 500 people in the stands was all though. Sandy Downs in Idaho Falls is only $600 plus a $200 cleaning deposit. Pretty cheap arena rental compared to any of the other places we put on shows. i.e. Elko is $2400 a night! We are really trying to push the sport for you guys out here. Like I've said, keep supporting us and we will keep supporting all of you! Let me know how we can help...

    Morgan, UT this weekend!

    It is a short track, bout 250 to the gate. You can nose the truck out the gate but it makes a pretty hard right so you don't want to have too much speed when you get there. Little heads up, the track is usually pretty sandy but it holds the moisture pretty well. I have learned that in my blown 2 wheeler and my 4 wheel drive that less tire speed is usually better, unless you've got some radical tires to get it hooked. I probably won't even open the 2 wheeler up much past half throttle just because the track usually won't handle it down there. Still a lot of fun, especially since it's the first pull of the year for us

    Morgan, UT this weekend!

    Just reminding everybody that the Morgan, UT pull is this saturday, June 7th! There will be a club luncheon at 1:00 and the show starts at 7:00. PLEASE be registered and weighed in by 5:00!! We will be doing a tech inspection so it will help the club out the earlier you get there. Also, the Idaho Falls DHRA/United pull is June 21st at Sandy Downs. Diesel registration opens at 10:00 and closes at noon...this means you must be weighed, registered, and teched by noon. We want to put on a good, fun event for the DHRA in support of them coming out west. Just got word that we will be running DHRA rules for the DHRA shows. You can get them from their website at www.dhraonline.com. Get in touch with Terry from Moonlight with any questions about the rules. If anybody has any questions or needs directions/hotel rooms/local breweries for any of the pulls, shoot me an email at skyler.neibaur@aggiemail.usu.edu or call me (208) 670-0996. www.unitedpullers.net Thanks again and hope to see you all soon!!

    Yes in the tip is just fine. It just has to be "somewhere in the exhaust after the turbo".

    Remember guys, everybody is allowed one warning to get their safety equipment installed. That means that if you are only going to pull once, don't let the driveshaft shields stop you. Our tech guys will give you a warning that if you come back to pull at another show, you will need to have them on.

    How do you know if you don't try Jake? How many times have we discussed that horsepower isn't everything on dirt?

    Sure you will...Just go find some aluminum and bolt them on. They are really simple to do. I'm sure that Terry or Shane would be happy to give you some ideas since they have already done them.
