I'll post more video clips up after this week of finals, maybe a few during the week. Working on Cory's Holy Moly run from the on board camera. But here is Mike's run again in real time.

First of all, wanted to send a shout out to all of you that attended the Extreme Truck Challenge 2012. I was happy to see the wide variety of talent and willingness to work together. We have a good thing going on and will hopefully continue to increase the popularity of this event for years to come.

Thank you to all of the sponsors, who donated time or money to make the event happen.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work eveyone put into the comp., it was great to have the variety between events. Never had so much fun behind a steerring wheel. Twisited Trails did a great job running the event. Thanks to all the competitors who are willing to break their junk and push each others to new levels. John was a great spotter, and Shawn you really helped make this event one that will be hard to top.

Oya! stayed up and got rock rings on too! was running 5lbs in the front, 3lbs in the back hit a tree so hard with the back I sheared the center pin of the leafsprings, felt that one! also cliped a tree with the front driver tire that shot the truck in the air... "cheesy plug" the knuckles I got from Jim at "EORP" are strong as hell and took the hit!

Just thought I would let you all know that the top four finishers all have the "unemployedfilms.com" decal on their vehicle, so congrats to Mike, Corey, Shawn, and AJ. And if Jacob had his truck ready, it would have been the top 5 most likely. Remember to always support the local arts Also congrats to the rest of the field, everyone did a great job. Thanks to all the sponsors and a big thanks to Shawn of Inner Air Lock for getting it all together.

Decals are available just email me at: unemployedfilms@mac.com for more info. (Unemployed Films does not guarantee the decal will put you in the money but you'll be able to see how cool the decal looks on your ride in the videos.)
I want to thank Jacob for giving me his video footage, this is what I have been posting except for the on board video of Corey. Also thanks to Janelle for some amazing stills, and to Heidi for getting footage along the blue trail, that isn't easy running up and down those hills.

I'll post more video after exams.
