Because we have to! We have Dodge trucks, so we must compare to the competition regardless of what mods are considered OEM stock. I'm sure this is covered in the Automotive Owners Handbook for Competitive Gentlemen. LOL

Also in the same handbook is the section where we 'MUST' come up with any and all excuses as to why the results of our race were not the results that we 'know' should have been .....that's the way it is!

We are boys with toys (men with trucks if you prefer), and we all have the best, strongest, fastest and nicest looking truck, no matter how slow, gutless, unreliable or ugly it is...it's just the way we are...Fanatical!

Although....in my case....I lost because recently acquired information has proven the Eco was NOT equipped as stated....as in NOT the gears indicated and not 100% stock (the name Hennesey was dropped....)
That's my excuse.....and I'm sticking to it! (I 'know' what the results of the race should have been....I have a Hemi...so it's simple...I win! )
