After a long day driving chasing pictures that someone else had taken, we arrive at out hotel in Lincoln, AL. Next, cool down, then see how Val has stood up to the drive.

Val’s new head gasket is on!

The second worst-case outcome, and a whole lot of work. Fortunately the team has a whole lot of help… In addition to the entire Misfit Toys Racing crew (three teams on this year’s rally) and Foolswagen, several other Ralliers have also volunteered to help get this dirty, difficult and downright long job done. Hopefully the sun will rise on a healthier Val and not the teams still working on her.

This is the spirit of the BABE Rally in action.  Crash and Burn have never felt more honored to be a part of it.

Long day of driving with increasingly worse mechanical problems. An electrical short took out the engine in the middle of the Nantala Gorge, blew out the brake lights and left Crash swearing loudly when a crossed circuit sent a jolt up his arm (he’s fine, but the residents of northeastern Tennessee now know a few new curse words in several languages).

Thanks to teams Foolswagen (who rode mother hen over THOTC all day) and Misfit Toys (who obtained an unobtainable head gasket), repairs are underway and the team is looking forward to a brighter tomorrow.  Thanks also to David Zatz at Allpar.com who put the word out to his members that we were looking for advice, and for all those members who so quickly, thoroughly and helpfully responded to that call.

For the second year in a row, the team has faced mechanical challenges as well as the costume challenge on Day 2 of the BABE Rally. However, the team’s spirits remain high and Crash and Burn look forward to Day 3 of the Rally and getting one step closer to the finish line in New Orleans!

The first day of the 2011 BABE Rally is run.  THOTC had a great time with the challenge — a photographic poker game — and came in with a Royal Flush in Diamonds.  Val had a few minor mechanical problems that made the day a little longer than it needed to be, but those have been addressed and the team is looking forward to Day 2 (Costume Day)!
