Story and Photos by Andy Johnson



I guess two days of great weather was a little to much to ask for, because today we woke up the booms of thunder, cracks of lightning and poring rain. Unfortunately, we are on a weather hold right now and Little Rich is out making some major changes to the courses. Instead of running the courses from bottom to top like yesterday they are going to run most of the courses from top to bottom. They are hoping this will allow the competitors to be able to finish all the courses. They are also only going to run 3 courses and they will not have a Shot-Out. As long as there is no lightning we will be starting at noon.


They had to cancel the event. Not a single team even had a chance to run a course. The back to back storms rolling through the area just wouldn't let up. It's very unfortunate, but due to insurance issues W.E. Rock can't run event if lightning is in the area.



The day wasn't a complete loss.

John Scheidhauer pulled away with the win in the Ftoy class. He did a very good job lining his rig up to the trailer and one shotting it up on with no back ups.

Mod Stock was a different story though. Kurt Shramovich had such a commanding leading most of the group didn't even bother pulling their rigs off the trailer and instead just looked for shelter from the rain. Kelly Young did do her best to gain at least 2 points so she could tie for 2nd place, but nodody was going for it.

Pro Mod was the group to watch today! Shannon Campbell mixed it up a bit today and let Nick back into the drivers seat. He did a very nice job of pulling the buggy on the trailer while Shannon watched on from the warm/dry confines of the Chevy dually. Rusty Bray had no chance of catching them today and could only drive around on his 4wheeler and watch the winning pair drive away.

Over in the Unlimited class Brad Styles kept his slim lead over Carl Shortridge with some fine driving, pulling his tow rig and trailer out of the muddy field and onto the gravel driveway with hardly spinning a tire!

I think this picture of Ken Blume pretty much sums it up!
