Im thinking the last round will be a 2hr endurance race, I have till the flyers go to print to decide. lol. I will be looking for a little help this year on setting up the courses, organising the races, and trail recovery. let me know if you can be at every event and help me out in trade for some trail and park time...... please pm me with any ideas or concerns. Otherwise FIX YER JUNK AND GET ER OUT TO STRADDLELINE!!!!!

Straddleline ORV Park is by Olympia WA. It has a big quad/dirtbike track and a 4x4 area. There are some trails, hillclimbs, mudholes and man made rock obstacles. They do a trail style race about once a month.

Couple questions. Is there overnight camping, and what is the entry cost?

http://www.promotopromotions.com/ I think Beau is still working on the new rules and fliers for the upcoming 4x4 races. Last year it was pretty informal, show up with a helmet and run.

Beau and I have been talking about these events a fair amount, Master Pull will be there supporting this great local series. Last year we did kick in some gift certs for the winners. I might even kick in a rope or two for the overall winner of each class.

and is sayas 33% payout on the flyer, so i assume a little cash and a tophy.

the winch rope sounds cool for sure. next question is this-i know there are several dates, so is it going to be an accumulated total for all the different dates and a winner at the end, or will there be winners/prizes for eash listed date.

im very intersted in the event-its about a 400ish mile drive for me/us-just wanna see exactly what i would be commiting to

lastly-can you run multiple classes in one rig-eg take a set of 35;s and 37's and swap over?

can you enter two different rigs with one driver?

Can a stock class rig run the track and not have to pull cable all the time?

If my jeep has high line kit is it still stock?

The widest vehicle I have seen out there had 5 ton rockwells and 60" tires, it was probably 104" wide.

Beau would have to answer those questions. Personally I would drive out there once to check it out, but not every race.

Another question for Beau, 360-921-7389. I would say yes to both, you might have to pay extra race registration fees.

The hard spots have bypasses with time penalties for stockish vehicles.

Last year it was 2 vehicles at a time, timed laps. 1 or 2 laps per run, some vehicles did multiple runs. This year might be different.
