Yes, I know the Element is dirty, but do not fret, I plan to detail it, pre-race day!

Here is Team Evil Element's 2003 LX ready for the install

Our bags will be installed in the rear cargo area

The installation area, pre-cleaning

After scrubbing down and cleaning with a little alchol, the velcro was put in place

And its just that easy

The bags are holding up tough to every day abuse and are great for keeping spare pieces together and in one place on parts runs as well as for holding the golf balls between range days :D

[FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Thirty-nine teams of gung-ho co-eds from the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, the University of Central Oklahoma, the University Tulsa, Southwest Oklahoma State University, University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma, St. Gregory's University, Northern Oklahoma College and Rose State College all saddled up their horses (a.k.a. gassed up their cars) to compete in the race.

[FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]A single shot rang out across the Oklahoma/Kansas border to start the race, fired by the legendary Pistol Pete, starting the ruckus. [/FONT]

[FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Participants used their nose for direction and a GPS Navigation system to find nine checkpoints along the way. At each stop teams were given off the wall missions, like bartering for their next clue with items found on the floorboards of their cars (i.e., cologne, a plastic Buddha, laundry),singing "Oklahoma" to a packed crowd at Eskimo Joe's and even pitching tents.
