Robby Gordon (#77) is in the lead at Race Mile 383, per Weatherman Radio.
Edit: that is in the Trophy Truck Class... overall 4-wheeled vehicle. #77, 23, 19 are all running close.

Robby didn't break anything except himself. We were at mile 450 when he stopped for fuel. Took off after fueling and then turned around and pulled back up to his crew. Had to be helped out of his truck and then collapsed on the ground. Eventually his co-driver climbed out also. Looked like the end of his race. The helo was planning to land.

After about 15 minutes he climbed back in the truck. Took him another 5 minutes or more to buckle in. No hurry at all. Then he started the truck and took off to finish.

regardless of that drama, it appears as if gordon may be onto something with his new truck , using a transaxle set up instead of a transfer case.

Sounds like he neglected his diet. I have observed that these racers seem to be obsessed with rockstar and monster energy drinks — if you try to live off a diet of energy drinks alone, you will get sick. I assume the racers eat/drink only sugary caffeine energy drinks, as I don’t see any other food/drink stickers on their cars.
Perhaps the racers should get rid of the energy drinks and eat some wheaties, bacon/eggs, PBJ sandwiches, etc., eh?
I suspect that the racer that eats a balanced diet will not collapse like Robby who was trying to subsist on energy drinks :light:

Robby obviously didn't follow the jack thread on BN!

Per Robby on Instagram. He did have a vibration but the down time was a flat tire and the new jack system failed him. It fell 3 times off the jack and he ran out of charges to raise the jack. He said he would go back to what’s always worked. He did say the new rear end worked perfect and all the running gear and engine are the same unprepped from V2R. Both 500 mile races were to test and make sure the new driveline system could go 1000 miles.

Sounds like you have only observed the sponsor decals.

Most if not all of the top racers and many amateurs have personal trainers and dieticians. Personal chefs and private gyms are not unheard of. Racing is a big money sport whether Score, Nascar, Indy, Motocross or F1. Some F1 teams even have purpose built in car type simulators for specific physical conditioning and training exercises.

Racing is one of the most physically demanding sports. 500 miles in a hot race car wearing a 2 layer fire suit and outside temps over 90 degrees that day. Probably over 120 to 140 degrees in car. A F1 driver will lose 5-6 lbs or more during a 1.5 hr race. Same or more reported for Indycar and Nascar.

These racers are not living on a diet of Big Macs and energy drinks.

In conditions like that, dehydration could be a deadly hazard!

They need "still suits"


Did you ever read Frank Herbert's novel "Dune"? On that desert planet, they wore "still suits" that converted excreted body fluids to drinking water that they would re-ingest.

They could probably make it taste like warm gator aid! :no:
