WHAT HAPPENED The Whole Story. : 2015 OZARK 100

Going to give you the story from my view.
Harly our Shepard loves to go racing. Weekend before going when we open Motor Home door, he plants himself on the dash. (His Spot), and won't leave until we are locking up usually. He's almost as excited as I am about this race.

Knowing that we were going to be there 4 days we spent the weekend making a Doggy bed so Carol and I had more room in bed where he sleeps at the the foot of the bed.

We got there Thursday evening and parked at a good spot close to all the excitement. It was almost dry and wonderful, so we set up pop up and got ready for the rain and cold which we had planned on dealing with propane heater in pop up with walls.

Over the night which I got little sleep , excited about the race it rained a little then early around 4 AM it started with the steady down pour until around 8 AM I believe. We got geared up with rain gear and warm dry clothes to get pictures and video of the Friday race. With all of the rain, I decided I need to help Friday because it gets real tough here even without rain and a lot of women and youth racing today. I really enjoyed helping them.

We started informing other that were coming of conditions so they were prepared. Having the Motor home that sinks like a rock and if we got stuck, (which I did once) we have to be towed backwards because front too low to tow. Hook will be installed soon on front. We have a great ending story about this situation too. Road in was stable and not too bad for all the rain we got.

RE: OZARK 100 Miler - 2015 HBGP Hare Scramble
Saturday evening was another great day in the Land of HGP company. We dried up a little in motor home and Carol cooked us up some awesome supper and feed some of the HGP crew too. David Rogers, My toughest competition showed up and stayed the night and many others came by to visit and warm up. It was a constant rain all evening and night and I really did not get much sleep either withal of the excitement. Hayes and Tom Henderson stopped by for biscuits and gravy while I was doing repairs and maintenance to Berg.I left the Husaberg out in the rain to get clean that night and next morning it started and died. Water in the electrical and was blowing fuses. Found connector full of water under headlight and got it running right before the race started.
Race started and I got the hole shot and led for a while until I crashed in a mud section. Didn't think it was all that bad, but what happened is I twisted the front wheel left, bent the bars with right shoulder, dislocated right shoulder slightly and sprained left wrist. Then I found I had more issues, front brakes were not working and rear brakes fell off and were metal to metal. Rough ride for the next 20 miles. I didn't know I had dislocated right shoulder until I got back and could not lift right arm. Fell far behind leaders, but got 6 Th place anyway.
