After a disappointing Mint 400, Doc Glass kept the past where it belongs, and he moved forward, taking the Class 8 victory at the Silver State 300. "We broke a rear spindle at the Mint," Glass said. "Just inside of the wheel seal/outside of the caliper mount, oil went all over brakes, etc. I repaired the housing with a new spindle for the SS300."

Dr. Macrae Glass, the Kingman, Arizona chiropractor, and the KC Hilites/Glass Chiropractic racing team recently competed in The Best in the Desert's (BITD) Silver State 300, held near Alamo, Nevada. "We were greeted by near perfect temperatures, wicked speeds in the trees, and stout competition," he remarked.

"We drew the number 1 starting spot, with the winners from the last two events lined up behind us. Ken Kelly rode as navigator. The last round hurt more than our feelings with that broken rear spindle and a DNF. A solid finish was the goal of the day."

Glass and Kelly took the green flag and with their focus firmly set on that singular goal, as they headed on to pit 1 and then 2, navigating through the engine choking dust.

"We pulled in to pit 3 for fuel and an air cleaner wrap and we moved on," Doc said. "We picked up the pace to pit 4, and it became clear, all the winter testing with springs and shocks had paid off. This was the best the front had ever worked. We headed onto pit 6 for fuel and one more air cleaner wrap, and we pulled out with a 7.5 minute lead. Second and third place were breathing down our necks, but we had something for them. We picked up the pace and charged to the finish, first in class 8 and 32nd overall. This was our first win of the year, and it feels really good to get back on top of the podium. We sit atop the points for the mid-season break and then it's off to the Vegas to Reno race in mid August, which is the next event on the six race BITD thrash."

"The SS300 went off as planned," Glass adds. "We spent the better part of the winter into spring working on a faster suspension setup as we chisel away on more speed. The truck was pretty darn good at the SS. Of course, were still always using the HP5001 oil filter and the E-3760 air to help make big power!"
