Yep, Snot Rocket racing. They've qualified for KOH next year. Clearly this wasn't a qualifier for KOH.

For this event to grow or at least keep the competitors it already has to come back next year, there has to be a separate class for buggys.

I agree just tire size isn't enough to separate groups

The video should be very entertaining. Saw somebody launch it over the finish line and deploy the air bag, another jeep the spotters helmet came flying off after launching and nosediving across the finish line and burying the front leaf springs into the ground. Same guy probably lost about 20 sockets from his tool box in the whoops section, the camo jeep went into the woods and apparently hit a small tree and it got wedged between his hood and grill hoop - he must've needed more camo. And one of the guys from Duck Dynasty showed up and trashed an 80's Ford Bronco- halfway through the course pretty much every body mount broke and the whole body was coming off the frame about a foot every time he hit a bump, it looked hilarious through the whoops. That didn't stop him, he still finished in style w the pedal mashed to the floor.

Had a good time. I agree need a buggy class felt bad for the 35" tire guys getting smoked by a full blown ultra 4 buggy. Also there should be no changes to the track during the class running. Didn't think it was right to fill in the ledge at the top of the hill when the 40" tire guys were running there second lap after a few had gone and only the two most well equiped buggys there were left. Did that change make a differance in the out come?

Yea tuff call on what to do too track when one person struggles on a hill and digs holes all over for 5 min. Not sure what the fair thing to do there is.

track stays at it lies. that's the luck of the draw. getting an early draw you get a less chewed up course but nobody to watch and learn from. get a later draw you run the risk of a torn up track but you get the benefit of watching the others and learning from it before you run.

Exactly.

Only things that should be fixed are cones and other course markers...not the course itself.

With the exception of a few things that need to be tweaked for next year it was still ran quite well.

Hats off to Bundy Hill for a great event. The course was awesome!!! I also agree on separate class for buggies, had my 6300lbs full body grand Cherokee running against big motor buggies that weighed less than 1/2 of my jeep. But then again what counts as a buggy, never could get rules that would make every one happy. can't wait to see video!!!! I cleaned all the logs off the hill climb on my 3rd attempt. Again thanks to Bundy Hill and all helpers for great event. This was 3rd time entering and it gets better every time

One of the best features of this comp was the layout.

From about anywhere you could see 85%+ of the course.

This was great for spectators, kept everyone involved in each complete run.

This was great IMHO.

Finally got around to putting together some video.

Here's the under 40"

The Black Ford Bronco was by far the most entertaining
