Zeller, driving the Nelson and Nelson built "Scrapper,"
began the event smiling and he didn't stop all day long
as he pushed his rock rig through the technical obstacles
at Area BFE. Zeller and his new teammate, Fabtech sponsored

picking apart the obstacle and going after what they thought
was the best line.

Corvette motor. This is the same rig that Campbell beat

keep it going through the end of the event."

as "SuperSpot" Wadeson...and perhaps this pose
is his imitation of "Superman," but nothing was
going to help this multi-time previous event winner fly

beard - can only smile as his top spotter prepares for battle.
