  • A Dangerous Sport

    The Boonta Eve Classic was coming up in the next two months on Tatooine, so Baalbis Daanron had just enough time to ready his podracer and train his pit crew. He had not had the best luck with crews in the past, as they seem to always quit for some reason. In the city of Mos Espa, cantina patrons had already started to wager which podracer would win this year's classic. The dug was confident it would be him and he had told everyone within earshot the same. The dug racer made his way over to his shop to check on some modifications that he had made to his engine. A potential pit crew member was going to meet him there for an interview.

    The time came and then passed for his potential crew member interview. Another no show. That seemed to be the norm as of late. No one wanted to do the essential work to keep the podracer in top working order. Everyone wanted to be a driver. It took skill, experience, and a lot of credits, and Baalbis Daanron was the only driver in this shop.

    He picked up the servodriver and began making adjustments to the harmonic dampener. In last year's race, Baalbis had just been edged out of first place by what he will continue to refer to as "an illegal maneuver" from an opponent. The dug had even lodged a complaint to the racing board, but they found no proof in the holo playback records. He wouldn't let that happen again this year, that was for sure. He was going to go over his podracer, bolt by bolt and make sure it was in optimum condition.
