Just a blurp from the artical.

"For Donnie Chambers, of Roseville, his interest has only grown throughout the years.

"I started about five or six years ago, but I've watched it for years and have been into things like four-wheeling and mud bogging since I was old enough to drive," he said. "This year I built my truck from scratch, working on it all winter."

Chambers races with a 1988 Ford Ranger named after the website he created when he was 13 years old, OffRoadOhio.com.

He said he's participated in about 20 races this year, winning almost $500. While the cash prize is a motivating incentive, that's not why Chambers races.

"I don't care about placing or the money," he said. "As long as I can hear the crowd cheering for me from inside my truck, that's what it's all about."

Althought it SHOULD say I PLAN to participate in about 20 races this year, not HAVE participated in

I have one more race to run this year. I was supposed to race yesterday and today but had a garage fire and lost EVERYTHING so gotta save the cash to rebuild.

I have raced twice since I last posted. Broke an axle and dshaft in one and got carried awaya nd forgot to stop before exiting the track on the next so I got a DQ.

Once the garage is taken care of, start looking for updates for next year.
