Welcome to Yellow Dog Racing.
Annoying the Internet for 17 years!

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'WOW-What a Ride!'" - Anonymous

Youth and Talent are No Match for Age and Treachery!

Why Yellow Dog?
Who knows.

It started when I painted a picture of a dog on a trailer (at left) and the name just grew from there. It sounded good, so, on it went.
There's something about that perpetual Grimmy Grin, while running Full Tilt Boogie, that I just relate to.

The majority of this site is dedicated to off road racing and playing.
You will find Stadium Race Cars, Desert Racing Cars, Motocross Stuff and who knows what else.
Have fun looking around by clicking on the links, pictures or the dates.

May 20, 2015 - So four years later, I'm back. Yellow Dog Racing is up and running again.
Lots of things have changed in my world over four years:
My daughters have graduated, the Briggs cars are gone, the Deztaz is for sale, I've moved out of Ohio and into Heaven (Phoenix area) after 15 years of waiting, have built a house and am enjoying life better than ever.
I picked up a couple of Polaris RZR XP900s a couple of years back and have had fun doing what I do to them - modifying, enjoying. I also have a new project that will be coming soon and I'll chronicle it here as it moves forth. You'll have to sit back and wait a tad more for this one, though - let's just say that a mini-trophy truck that's street legal will be fun.
So, on with the show!

The 24 Hours of Le Fud - May 2 - 4, 2003
In 2002 a group of ruffians decided to tackle a 24 hour endurance race in a Pilot. The race was a year away, but they laid plans, gathered together and assaulted the desert. This is the story of a merry crew, a desert race and 50 mph winds. (5/28/03)

Since many aspects of this site is oriented towards the building of off road cars,
I suggest you cruise over to
Mini-Buggy.net.
It's full of people that build, design and love the small cars and has more info to be found than the average bear can shake a stick at.
Go check it out!

Oh, one last thing: Spelling errors don't count either! I fat finger LOTS of stuff. I try to avoid errors, but I am human. While I'm talking about spelling errors, how about "A LOT?" - not "alot", not "allot", but "A LOT"! Two words! Please get it right. For some reason that just bugs the crap out of me. (:
