And here's a couple obstacle courses from Zilwaukee. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of the event but it was at where the Zilwaukee Bridge now stands.





And finally, for Liv2mx, Jeepbratte and all the other nay sayers, YES, I DID COMPETE. Once.


The obstacle course events that were held in Zilwaukee were called "TOR", or Truck on Regardless. Watched a chick flip her boyfriends EB, climb out the window, and run the rest of the course for a second place finish. Good times. Those events were right in my back yard, and dad loved to watch rednecks in action.

Those pics kind of look like the old Wire Line Rd by Caro from back in the day. My dad and his buddies used to wheel there. My parents were part of the Thumb Area Mud Runners back then.

Man I love this thread!

Anyone remember the dragster Munchkin?



Or Munchkin II?



Or who can forget Thumper? Back then, obstacle course races were very popular. This little Chevy powered flattie dominated the obstacle courses for several years.



And here's a couple obstacle courses from Zilwaukee. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of the event but it was at where the Zilwaukee Bridge now stands.





And finally, for Liv2mx, Jeepbratte and all the other nay sayers, YES, I DID COMPETE. Once.

I remember seeing Munchkin and Munchkin II racing when I was young. My parents were members of the Flintstones Four Wheel Drive Club, and they used to hold some of the races at the fairgrounds across from the Mounds, or in the big open field where the bus garage is at Dort and Maple in Flint. I'll see if I can find any of the old pics.
