    Yep, The Dakar rally has been cancelled, brcause of terror threats.this is the first time in thirty years the rally has been called off.It seems that al-qaida has made threats to disrupt the race. 550 car, truck,and motorcycle were expected to race in the 5,760 mile race. smokey

    Remember this? well it cost Robby Gordon 4.2 Million Bucks to get ready for that race.Friday when he left the track he had a ford. when he goes to Daytona he will be in a Dodge.He has teamed up with GEM. He will get technical,Manufacturing,and marketing support from Evernham. I wish him well, and hope they can run with the big dawgs. smokey

    What needs to happen is get Bin Laden strap his behind to a bumper on one of the rally trucks then the race will be able to be ran.
    As for Robby Gordon I think this will help him out alot with the change to Dodge.
