Zero Budget Racing Resurrection
« on: January 15, 2018, 12:14:39 PM »
Here is our story:
It took 10 years to hand build our first altered. (just because we don't have any money).
The first 2 pictures shows the rewards of our hard labor. (c.2014).
Then some A-HOLES stole the truck and trailer with all of our racing operation inside, EVERYTHING!!! (c.2015).
The third picture is the text I received fron the Sherrifs dept. (c.2016).
Yeah 2015 & early 2016 pretty much sucked! But everyone here knows that us racers are just too dumb to quit! So after having to move 90 miles North (another story). We started over! The racing family have been great! Knowing we could never rebuild it alone, old friends and people I don't even know have stepped up and have been donating things to help out in some way. I have always done things for myself, basically becauce I could never afford to pay someone to do it. So taking charity wasn't easy to do. (my Wife said: "Shut up and let them help"!! LOL) Well we have started the process to resurrect The Zero Budget Altered with the few parts that were recovered and the racing family's generosity. We have a new PG, and one of our board members has sponsored an engine and parts to help us greatly!
The last two pictures show our progress.. (c.2017/2018)
We hope 2018 is a racing year for us!
Thank You to all that have helped and might help in the future!
Joe Barton, Zero Budget Racing!
