The awards have been handed out and the smiles are locked in place while even more hearts are crushed. While this is a sport that has it's dominating forces landing in the top spots consistantly, this event brought out several new names. Many of those names are creeping steadily up the ranks and those top forces need to start looking over their shoulders. I was often asked, "Who the heck is ___?" after someone saw or heard an update. My answer was usually, "I don't know. Maybe they came from an East Coast competition?"

Yup, the faces are changing and so is the sport. UROC announced they are merging with RCAA. Craig Stumph, founder of the most successful series in the sport of rockcrawling, is retiring from UROC and hoping to compete again soon. Rigs are constantly being reshaped and re-equiped in the constant struggle of a two man team to conquer unforgiving rock formations. Next year should be interesting to say the least. Look out everyone big things are on the way.

While who won in the divisions is highly important, we want to take this opportunity to congratulate Ken Shupe on being the man that walked away with the bounty money that was on Money Pit's head. You can watch Ken pillage the feared climb in our video clip.

The final rankings for SuperCrawl II have some surprises and some expected placing. Here's the list for you to find your favorite.

Congrats to Jon Bundrant, Amy Bullock, and Jeff Mello for their respective wins! They truly are WORLD CHAMPIONS!

9/27/2003 8:00P.M. CST - DAY 2

Believe it or not the HUGE boulder shown in the picture above will later in the day be shoved down the hill after the many rigs that have nudged it during the course of the event!



9/27/2003 7:30P.M.CST - DAY 2

At this time the unofficial winners for the 3 divisions are:

Jon Bundrant - Unlimited

Jeff Mello - Super Stock

Aaron Clough - Legends

In a daring attempt to steal the lead from Jon Bundrant, Ken Shupe decided to try for a spotter ride bonus on his last event, Course 9. By doing this, if he aced the obstacle, he would have pole vaulted soundly into first place. The gamble back fired however, when he ended up rolling and giving up 40 points.

When we left the competition site to make this update UROC had just posted the scores after all rigs had completed 9 events. Some teams have finished all 10 courses, but UROC only updates scores after all courses have been completed by stages. So here they are.

9/27/2003 12:45P.M. CST - DAY 2

UROC has changed the way they are updating scores. We went to get the first update and had to become temporary UROC staff to help round up the score cards necessary for them to tally the totals.

After over coming an upload connection issue, we are back up and running and giving the scores here first.

Becca Webster started the day on top of the Legends Class but an untimely roll at the top of one of her courses set her back 40 pts. and dropped down quickly in the rankings.

Meanwhile Shannon Campbell walk his way up where many had gone down in shame only to have his fuel relay go out and loose all engine function. With 10 seconds left on the clock, he and his spotter tried to push the rig across the finish line only to be denied and suffer the 40 point hit.

The FTM team running the Ford Ranger we speced out for you in earlier coverage has become an Inline 5 as the had to pull a rod out. They are taking 40's on the courses to avoid the 50 pt. no show hit, and saving the rig for the Money Pit run.
