Happy Thanksgiving!  This week Daystar's own Don McMillan returns from the Desert Splash event in Parker, AZ. With two days of wheeling, lots of BBQ, and tons of prizes in the raffle, this is a great event for those near the Arizona/California border. Daystar also sponsored a heads-up shootout in Las Vegas where drag racers had the chance to earn cold hard cash for the quickest ET and fastest MPH.  Plus, check out the latest video of the Daystar sponsored SR1 Rhino from round 14 of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series.

Daystar had a great weekend at the Desert Splash trail ride put on by the Parker 4 Wheelers in parker, Arizona.  With over 250 rigs and over 500 people in attendance, the event was a huge success.  Parker is well known in desert racing circles, but it definitely holds its own as one of the more popular rockcrawling venues as well. There were a variety of trails to choose from depending on your skill level and vehicle equipment; everything from scenic trails to hardcore rockcrawling.  Daystar's own Don McMillan was on hand to spread the good word about Daystar's product line and also spent some time on the trails in his orange '06 LJ.  Don's trail runs included Longo's Curse, the Truman Trail, and Presidents Choice, all of which he managed to conquer without much trouble except for leaving a little orange paint here and there.  Friday night featured car crushing where participants could try driving over some junk cars hauled in for the occasion.  There were plenty of four-wheeled antics  as people tried to crush the roof of a particularly stubborn van, including a light rollover.  Saturday night the club hosted a huge Barbecue followed by a raffle, where one lucky winner walked away with $1,500 and several more walked away with Daystar accessories as well as t-shirts.  The Parker 4 Wheelers put on a great event and we look forward to attending next year!  Keep an eye on the club's website, www.parker4wheelers.net, for more information on the 2011 Desert Splash and check out some cool photos on our Facebook page.

 


Thursday Night Shootout

Daystar Products sponsored the Thursday Night Shoot for the second year in a row at the 6th annual Street Car Super Nationals held at the Strip in Las Vegas Nevada. Thursday night all the Pro-Cars that entered got a single shot at the quarter mile to show who has the baddest cars on the ground prior to Friday's start of qualifying.  Names like Legendary Pro-Street Racer Pat Musi, NHRA Pro Mod racer Brad Personett, and Local Favorites Ed Thorton, and Giuseppe Gentile were just a few of the 22 cars that took a shot at the Track to try and win $500.00 dollars for lowest ET, and $500.00 for quickest MPH. 

 

As the Nevada Sun set in the West the chilly air rolled into the Strip, two things were apparent as the temps dropped: it was going to be tricky getting down the track, and whoever did was going to put up some insane numbers. Twenty two competitors took a shot at the tricky track, but in the end there was one person who emerged to the top with an ET of 6.08 seconds and a speed of 240.85 mph!  The winner of the Daystar Thursday Night Shoot Winner was Kirk Wilmes!  Kirk continued his success through the weekend capturing the #1 Qualifying spot with an 6.02 @ 243mph.

 

Congratulations to Kirk and Crew on a great weekend!
