Background & Plans
Found this theft recovery that didn't drive, didn't run in Albuquerque's Copart right as Covid-19 started sending everybody home.

Get it running (check!)
Get it on the track (check!)
Get it racing - TT (check!)
Get it to win an TT event (check!)
Get it to catch fire (check!)
Get it to win a season championship (check!)
Get it to win another regional championship (yo yo!)
Get it to wreck at a national championship (Texa---no, ALASKA SIZED CHECK)
Get it to win a national championship (never)

We didn't get there, but dang, we were close. Not a bad run for a car assembled for under $20k by a guy who knows nothing about what he was doing.
