Bullrun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
has a list showing which teams got eliminated on which episodes.
I'll bet it sucks to be eliminated in a challenge where you do not get to drive your own vehicle - of course some cars would not do so well in on a wt mud track.
No offense intended to Tony - but saying "I can drive the **** out of anything" and then not keeping the car on the track has got to be embarrassing - yes I understand that having a windshield covered in mud with no wipers can't be easy - but I think he could have done a better job of listening to Theresa - she was clearly telling him to go right and all he did was complain that he could not see anything - well duh - that's why you listen to your navigator - if she can see something you can't do what she says. Then again if I entered a contest like that with my wife - I doubt that network television would be able to broadcast much of the resulting footage.
I guess everybody's got a different take on things, that's why we're humans. Let me say right off that Tony and Theresa are my heroes no matter how they ended up. From what I could tell from the film, I thought Tony and Theresa gave a fine lesson on how to win a Bull Run; their strategy was dang good, and they were smart about how they went about it. You could see some of the other teams and drivers, in comparison, had no clue.
It was a little cheap to make'em drive around in the mud, but most all competitions have some wrinkles built in, and the mud track was maybe a little more relevant than making'em saddle up a green horse and circle around some barrels on the clock. Professional race car drivers may not have done a bit better. Ye just got to chalk that ending up to luck of the draw. My heart went out to'em.
I just got my little Sky in Feb, 09, and when I saw the first 6 or 7 episodes of Bull Run a couple of weeks ago, it was Team Solstice that inspired me to search out ya'll's website and some others to see what's going on in the Sol-Sky world. Ya'll's enthusiasm for your cars is a little catchy, and I fear I'm in danger of succumbing to the pandemic myownself.
So, when ya'll get to Broomfield, make a toast to my heroes, Team Solstice, and I'll join in with ye from afar on the sunny slope of the Smoky Mountains.
