Thumbs up Race Write-up from Goertz Ranch (2019 TORCS Rd 1)

Last Sunday, I loaded up “Big Blue” (my trusty 2018 Polaris RZR Turbo) and made the 2.5 hour journey to Goertz Ranch in Rockne, TX for the Round 1 of the 2019 TORCS cross-country series. I was happy that it was finally race day b/c this was my first opportunity to get some seat time in the RZR since our last race of 2018. Also, I always look forward to racing at Goertz Ranch b/c this is my favorite TORCS track… wide and fast! Below is my race write-up.

WHERE:
Rockne, TX… it’s a tiny town about 8 miles south of Bastrop. This picturesque property has pecan groves, a few creek crossings, and a large pasture area.

TRACK CONDITIONS:
When I arrived at the track around 1pm, the weather was nice (sunny and mild temps), but the ground was soaking wet thanks to heavy rain the night before. As I pulled into a parking lot, I began to question whether I could find an open parking spot before my 2wd truck got stuck in the mud. Sure enough, I only made it 100 yards past the entrance gate before my rear tires lost all traction in the sloppy mud. With a little push from a friendly ATVer, I was quickly on my way to find a parking spot on high ground next to the track. Turns out, this little challenge getting through the mud was a sign of things to come!

I took a look at the pics and I know there's a RZR somewhere under all that mud because I can see "RZR" on the head rest. I'm sure glad I don't have to clean that up.

LOL... Believe it or not, it took me over 4 hours of pressure washing to clean the mud off my RZR (plus the truck and trailer from getting stuck in the parking lot). Ugh! I miss the old days when I raced ATVs... clean up time was much less.

Your RZR looks like the mobile dog truck in Dumb and Dumber.

Congrats on finishing, never mind first.
