I posted a few pics over in the picture and video forum, didn't have the camera going for the most exciting stuff, but thats how it goes. Lots of good stuff yesterday, some carnage, hopefully everyone is back up and running today.

Mike R took first, Jim jr took 2nd and Trevor took third. Almost every one was still running for Sunday, but didnt take long for people to start dropping. Think only about half finished the course today. Between me, billy and unemployed there's video of just about every thing. Unemployed films has all the footage and will be posting it over the next couple days

Awesome event

Working on getting videos out, thanks to all who raced, the drivers and spotters for putting on a great show, also thanks to Twisted Trails and their crew for doing a great job, thanks to Shawn of Inner Airlock for doing all the behind the scenes work, and thanks to all the sponsors for building a huge purse and the prizes that are a huge part of making this get bigger and better.

Now I want to personally thank Jacob, Billy, and Daniel for helping us film all the competitors. Running through the crowd, climbing trees, all your hard work, is tiresome, I know, so thanks guys, I really appreciate it!

Just want to thank Twisted Trails and Shawn (Inner Air Lock) for putting on another great comp. The courses were more challenging than last time and a lot of fun.

Trevor & Jim Jr, you guys never let up and made it a great competition, can't wait to see where things go next time.

For those who stayed home you missed some of the best action especially my brother John and Dale Larson beating the hell out of their land cruisers, Alice as well..... Can't believe they stayed together as long as they did ...Wow!

It was great to have all the competitors show up, willing to beat their rigs so we can have completions like this.....thanks

All I can say is what a blast! Becky was a "super spotter", the holy moly was quite a treat ! Can't wait to see video of that! All I wanted was to make it through all the obstacles so mission accomplished-thanks to all who helped make it happen especially those who pushed us back up on our wheels !

I can't remember when I had so much fun, even though a lot of things broke on my FJ, I ended up 9th. I'm going to fix it and be back for more fun. a lot of folks helped me out that I need to thank, my brother Mike R. for all your help, nice job on first place by the way, my spotter Dave, great job for your first comp as a true spotter maybe next time layoff the moonshine, Jon Moore and Randy Drew for your help with the winch, Jim Jr. For your help with those wonderful zip ties on the front, Dale Larsen for driveshaft removal, Zach and Jacob and Luke for helping me ratchet strap my motor in place, Corey for the use of his grinder so I could rebuild my drive shaft, Jim Sr for installing my drive shaft while I was at the drivers meeting, Shawn for letting us use his welder, and anyone I missed, thank you!

Also thanks to TT for hosting the comp once again, Shawn for your hard work setting it all up!

It truly was an Extreme Truck Challenge for me, having a real truck with 39.5" tires, I had a great time thanks!
