    Default Mopars at the Strip - 2015

    Well there is a tonne of snow here in Edmonton, so this is the perfect time to start another exciting year for Blue Line Racing. Mike and have the newly wrapped truck and trailer on highway 2 heading south to compete in the annual Beat the Heat competition at the Strip in Las Vegas...




    I am not going to miss this snow!

    A quick thanks to EM Plastics, FX and Arlon for the wrap on the trailer!

    Yesterday was the long haul, it took us nearly 3 hrs just to get to Red Deer.

    This was my view for the first three hours! Mikes truck needs some thermalblades!



    Red Deer was about the last bit of snow we saw:



    We made better time after that and got into Salt Lake City at about 2100

    We are now spending a day or two at UCM Dyno Shop in Salt Lake...



    Doing the usual beginning of the season stuff.. Oil change on the Mustang...



    Can you spot the obvious sponsor placement? (Cough Cough... Mobile 1)





    Oil and spark plugs on the Challenger...





    Oh... And we can not forget about the Duster... A few giggles courtesy of Edelbrock!

    Here is our first pull without Nos...



    And our last pull of the night, the full shot!

    Again, a big thanks to Utah Chassis and Machine for all the work over the past two days.

    Sorry it has taken me a while to update you on our experience at Mopars at the strip,

    As usual it was a great opportunity to meet with other Law Enforcement Programs / Education based race teams that are all promoting the same message!



    Big thanks again to Scott Graham of LASD Motorsports (http://www.lasdmotorsports.com/index.php
    and Andy Lewis of F.I.R.E. - Las Vegas Fire Department (http://firebike.org/) for organizing the race.





    A few of the other teams that were out for the race:







    I wish I could say we rocked it there, but a couple of red lights and mis-dial cause all three cars to go out in the first round. Such is life... We got a whole bunch of track time and exposure:





    Mike and Terry even got some air time with Steve Magnante:

    We event took the time to take some team photos, I just wish we could have got some palm trees in the background!



    Thanks again to August at Edelbrock for the support!



    All and we had a great time, and got some great exposure for our program and sponsors.

    Mike did a video, feel free to check it out and like us on our Facebook page.
