Deus Dress Up Drags

Jesus died for all our sins, then he came back to life… for Deus was having its 3rd annual “Dress up Drags”. Oh boy, did we act like a bunch of bulls in candy store filled with china. There were father and son-matching jumpers, Jesus, rockers, clowns, wonder woman, cowboys, and even Elvis made an appearance...

Pulses were racing as the dragsters wound up their throttles and pulled into the studio for portraits. A few beers later (which is always a smart decision before one sets off to race), and we were off to the track.

Dressed to the nines with the sun in our eyes, we hurled ourselves down the dirt strip gunning for glory. Some of us found it and others… well, let’s just say they still had fun with dirt in our mouths.

Locals and travelers alike clogged the makeshift raceway just to get a good seat for this afternoon of controlled mayhem. There were false starts, monos, dead heats and straight up blowouts. Needless to say, every one who watched or raced had dirt smiles.

As the sun went down, we all blasted up to “The Temple” for live music and libations. Our good friend and pro skater, Reno, had flown over with his band ‘Reprat and the Soul Brothers’ to belt out their Indo style of bluesy rock-n-roll. Then, low and behold, four little bunnies rolled in with baskets of candy for all to dive into.  It is Easter Sunday after all, so why not? One bunny even hopped up on stage and belted out some songs of her own, while the rest of the bunnies shook their tails off…

Anyways, Happy Easter!

P.S. We saw Jesus chugging beers all night so, no worries, I think we have a pass on this one…
