Trying to figure out if it's worth a day's drive to spectate .
We will have several areas to watch from. There will be people movers to transport from one area to another. Most areas you can move between areas during the race. People moving trailers will only run between races walking during limited to keep it SAFE though.
Course will have a good mix of wheeling with the High speed areas.

view areas are: **** best view IMO
*** better IMO
** Good IMO

Gravel Pit ****(wheeling/ speed )
Long crawl area **** (Speed)
Play ground **** (SPEED/ possible jumps)
key areas along Python *** ( wheeling )
Stump Hill ** (speed)
Camping// PIT ,start - Finish *** (Speed)
Grade mud area *** (speed)
Winch Hill *** (wheeling)
Under Taker *** (wheeling)

Hope this helps

We'll be there Ron.

Please make sure there are ample places (atleast 5-8) for racers to pass each other, otherwise you will end up with A classes "bumping" their way through traffic and causing havoc.

So then, there is no point in bringing a trail rig to move around, we are just as well to bring a DD?

Course dozed in . Some trails were made wider for the race. Big Valley section was a choir. Also found some more rocks for Under Taker section. Play ground has a nice road threw the middle now.
While out with the dozer I fixed up the Hump trail for you too.

Was at R&V this weekend checking out the course. Looks like it will give the western boys who are used to wide open a challenge. Here's hoping that the folks from Michigan will give a great turnout and some will enter. We want this race back year after year.

More work done on course. Then a tornado has filled a section full of down trees. I will have it cleaned up tomorrow with luck.

No one was aware. it happened in a mean storm last night. a path quite wide with twisted down trees and lot of brush. Our picnic tent was totaled and grill rolled over. The Porta -Jon got the crap smashed out of it as well

any jumps? if so, make the take-off flat, like a table-top jump, NOT peaked like a moto-cross jump (which causes rigs to endo)
