Artic Cat vs. Yamaha. Here Dean Bullock shows his true competitiveness
by holding Nick Campbell's Rhino from pulling away.

is warm and the action is sure to be HOT. We have a close points
race between the Top 5 Super Mods with Cody Waggoner leading the
pack at -75. In the Mod Legends class - Team Lovell is schooling
the field with a -2. Watch for Jeff Mello to close in on the front,
after a quick fix of his steering ram last night he is ready to
go. The Modified Stock division has Buzz Bronsema leading the group
with a 29 for the day. The next closes team is Troy Bailey with
a 79, he definetly has some ground to make up. In the Formula Toy
class we have John James in first with a 73 and Hobie Smih hot on
his heels with a 79.

proven to be a tough battle ground for the teams. With the local
crowds and a full vendor row this is a top notch event.
Yost in his Crane/Maxxis sponsored rig on the B2 course - after
hitting almost every cone and rolling over still managed to finish
one of the hardest courses of the day, much to the crowds delight
(I must say it was the best display of peeling out I have seen in
some time). Starting the day out in the middle of the pack Team
Crane Wrecking Crew is working hard to finish in the Top 10 and
put on a hell of a show. They seem well on their way to doing just
struggling a bit on the A2 course.

Trail Tough team pulls off an awesome front wheelie.
Modified Legends class is shaping up to be a close battle. Jeff
Mello fought A3 and finished with 5 seconds to spare, despite a
very re-bent steering
ram. Becca Webster struggled with the climb on A4 and timed out
by 4 seconds. Dean Bullock set the lowest score of the weekend on
A4 which will put him back into the hunt for first place after Brad
Lovell hit three cones on A1.
it still sort of works!
pilots his Dave'z OffRoad & Performance sponsored
buggy to an impressive 14 point finish on course A3.
Standage's run on A3 was going smoothly until he pulled off what
I believe to be the longest front stoppie in WE-Rock history.
Roger Lovell in their Fabtech/Alloy USA Ranger rolled off the top
rope and landed back on their wheels. With seconds to spare, he
finished the course at full throttle with a respectable 14 points.
one was pretty tough on Scott Ellinger in his RockStomper/Swayaway
sponsored buggy after they took 40 points on two courses and struggled
with some mechanical woes but have come back strong with negatives
on both the courses they have run so far today.

on B2 -he took out a cone and finished the course in reverse.
should have told Todd McClullen he's supposed to drive
through the course not fly.
Robert McKenne - Hammered Down to make the climb on B2 and ended
up breaking a rear ring and pinion in the process.

The points leader #117 - Cody Waggoner made a perfect climb up the
face of B3 only to back into a cone that he worked so hard to miss.
Jeff Mellow has won the event and had elected to not run his last
course but after some boos from the crowd he decided to give the
obsticle a run. Now that's what we like to see. Congrats Jeff!
Shannon had to get atleast -14 to lock up first place so thats exactly
what he did. With some of the best driving of the event he won the
event by 6 points. Nice job Shannon.
