  The waterfall drop off at the end of course #4 had a lot of drivers fully puckered up. It's a 6 foot drop off on rock!

2:00 PM Update

Course #2 has been an incredibly difficult obstacle. Kelly Clifford was the first to taste this nasty section of rock. Despite their best efforts, Kelly and Lance were unable to climb up this section.

 

Jason Scherer was talking to me before he started his attempt up #2. He thought he was going to just crawl up it and there would not really be anything worth taking a photo of. Well #2 denied him access and slammed him down to the bottom in defeat. Just a little tougher then he was planning for. Other drivers now really worried about this section.

Next up on #2 was Dustin Webster in the Red Bull ROCK-IT truck. Dustin tried a different approach, he winched up the face taking a 30 point penalty but was still designed when on the other side he got tangled up with a 10 point cone, causing him to point out before completion.

Also giving this section a try was Tracy Jordan. Jordan also started out #2 on the end of a winch. In a bit of a controversial call, the judges called a 10 point oil spill on Tracy. The Judges did not seem to notice this until the announcer was pointing it out to audience. While the Judge called the spill, he did not seem to notice the fact that Jordan had pointed out at this point (10 for spill, 30 for winch) and let him complete the course. It was not until completing the course that Tracy was told he had pointed out.

Mike Shaffer also was on #2 this morning and was the first driver to score any points on this obstacle. He winched the face and stayed away from the cones taking 10 points for the obstacle.

Bruce Zeller Team #180 Rolled so hard off of Course #3 that he shattered his right front wheel when he landed.
