The sun set during the truck's third lap, but the Super Duty rolls with a full complement of KC HID lights. The KCs kept the course illuminated, and Kreg was able to make great time after dark. After 450 brutal miles, number 8108 motored onto the finish line podium with a highly respectable Third in Class finish. Just the same, the Donahoe Racing team didn't make the trip to Parker with their sights set on Third Place. "Our Banks PDA monitor indicated that the oil temperature was getting hot. When the oil temperature reaches 275 degrees F, the engine control system cuts the power output by 50 percent to keep the engine from blowing up. We could easily have hit 100 on the graded roads, but the engine control system held us at 50." To ensure full power throughout future races, the truck will be upgraded with a bigger engine oil cooler, and the block will be prepped at Gale Banks Engineering for improved oil flow.
