SEMA is over and that means its time for racing! I’m out at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, NV and there are fifty amazing vehicles competing! The competition began before this morning though – it started yesterday evening as SEMA convention saw its close. At that time all available vehicles met up and left the convention center to head down the strip.

I was lucky enough to grab shotgun in a 2009 Mercedes C63 AMG. If you think Mercedes are no big deal in the race world, think again. This car tore up the road!! I’ve never had so much fun in Vegas! More details on the road rally portion of the race later… but this picture is just one of the many adventures we got that Mercedes into last night.
