9-30-2012 ****** Doubledose captured the wolverine mod points title for the 2012 season. Also Doubledose captured the HSTPA mod points title for 2012. Also Doubledose finished up 4th in the region 2 points race.*******

8-23-2012 Doubledose has been running pretty well, except for the last 2 pulls where we got into some  bouncing. We are leading the points in the Wolverine circuit and also leading the points in the HSTPA circuit. Also we are sitting forth in the region 2 points at this time

7-23-2012 Double Dose has been running pretty well since we started the season out. We have gotten a win and several 2nds and 3rds so far. We missed a region 2 pull last night @ Mount Vernon Ohio due to transmission problems in the hauler. Hoping to be back together and ready for Ionia Mi. on Friday

6-24-2012 Double Dose started out the season with a second place finish at the Connersville In. Pull. We are getting ready for a busy week with Marion County the 26th, Arcola the 29th and Hazzlewood the 30th.

4-10-2012 All motors are out and torn apart. We found sevaral cracked pistions. So we have parts ordered and are awaiting them to arive. I am stripping the frame down and going to have it staightened a little to help align the motors back up after last years rough seaon.

1-28-2012 Have done minor updates to the site. Also have uploaded what videos I had for the 2011 season.
the good, the bad and the ugly. I did not have many since my camera lady got a new job and did not have any vacation time this past summer..

1-21-2012 The Double Dose team was presented a picture, jacket and a check for winning the modified points race at the annual Wolverine Pullers award banquet held in Coldwater Michigan. Also the big surprise for the Double Dose team was being named Puller of the year for 2011. What a big surprise that was.

10-29-2011 With the season now over,Doubledose Plus One did end up wimming the Wolverine points title and also the HSTPA points title. I have gotten  the tractor preped and ready for storage for a few months and trying to put a plan together for what changes I want to make for next year. Here is the reason the tractor gets put in storage for a couple of months, My other hobby takes over:

9-25-2011 With the season almost over, It has been a rough season for the Doubledose team. I put on a new set of the HP tires and have struggled most of the season getting them to work. After many runs down the track and bouncing bad, we had many runs that we could not get 200 feet down the track. After trying many combinations of tire presures, we started looking at other things. One big thing I found was that my clutch setup was not adequate for the HP tires. After rebuilding all 3 cluctch's and making drastic changes from my old way of setting them up in mid August, I have helped the bouncing problem by 90%. I still need to work on other things to help the bounce on the hard tracks.

3-21-2011 Brand new look for the Krider Racing website. I decided it was time to do a complete make over of the web site since it has not had a major make over since I started it. If you have any trouble with this site Please E-mail me with the problem

7-13-2013, What should I be doing since I am not pulling this season? Oh, Oh,Oh, I know, how about working
on Christmas lights for this winter. Just got my first batch, 6000 led icicle lights. Since I hang these on pvc pipe I can go ahead and put these on now. Then when I go to put them up, I just hang the pvc pipe on the hooks I have up on the peaks.

7-6-2013*****  Website has had a major update to bring it up to date including new videos from 2012 season.

4-22-2013 ******  For the first time in 34 years Doubledose Plus One will not be running this season. After taking a bad ride at the Enderle Pull Off in September I was told on April 8th that I had tore the musle loose from the bone and needed surgery to reattach it. So not being able to get in to get it done untill the first week of May and a 3 month recovery period, I have decided to sit out this season. I think this will be a boring summer. I will get to some of the pulls to watch and visit.    *****

12-2014 Doubledose did finish the season winning the wolverine points. Doubledose also finished tied for 3rd in region 2 points. Doubledose finished 5th in the HSTPA points 
10-5-2014 With the season finally over it has been an up-n -down season. Doubledose did manage to get a couple of wins this season. But we are still fighting the bounce issue since putting on the new tires. We made a couple of changes including a gearing change and some hitch work for this season and it did not appear to help the bounce out. After a couple of real bad bounces it has bent the frame some. Not sure what we are going to do for next year at this time

February 2014, Doubledose is looking forward to being back out on the track and competing again.
After having another mri done in December the doctor told me that the shoulder looks like it has healed good. So as soon as the weather breaks here in Northern Indiana, we will start working on the Doubledose machine and get it ready for the 2014 season.

2-14-2016 Well the new the new shop is finally framed up, but the cold weather and the frost in the ground has broght them to a halt in getting the footer and floor poured, as they want to do that before they put any steel up. They were suppose to be here the first week of December and did not get here untill the first week of January. Not sure yet what the doubledose will end up getting done to it. I was planning on a new chassis, but at this time I think that is not going to happen with no shop to work in at this time. New shop is going to be 42 W X 50 D x15 H

5-7-2015 I have decided to sit out this season and not run. I am going to build a new shop. As you can see from the photo below, I have a flodding issue that floods my shop with 5"-6" of water over the floor and it has taken its toll on the building after all of these years.
Due to recent developments in my neighborhood, the town has built a retension pond about 150 foot away from me. They have ran new storm lines onto my property to alleviate this problem you see below. So I have made the decision to sit out and get a new shop built. Current plans call for a new doubledose to be built this winter in the new shop!!

4-6-2016 New shop is getting closer to being done. I am down to getting the doors installed and getting the inside done and electrical done. Not sure how pulling is going to stack up for this season. Still have to get the tractor ready to go. Not sure if I will have the time before I get the builing done and usable.
