Friday Nov 6th, 2009, Disney Oklahoma.
2nd Annual Disney Challenge

Lead Foot Syndicate and a gathering of some of the best Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas wheelers got together in Disney to settle the, "Who can do the Circuit the fastest?" In the end it came down to the old Tortouise and the Hare. All the Hares broke, and the Tortouise won out.

Congrat to Kevin Shipley "BigDude" on not only winning DC2 but doing so on the maiden trip on your new buggy.


Youtube cuts you off at 10 minutes so luckily Chris Beyer rolled right before that mark.

Ride along from the "shotgun" start to the 10 minute mark in the 555 Triple Nickel Racing buggy driven by Wyatt Pemberton, Co-dog Kelly "Blacksheep10" Kaiser, and Guardian Angel "Captain Morgan"

Wyatt finished here....




And I finished here...



It was alot of fun. We started with 9 rigs and only 2 finished. I think there were 6 cut tires, 1 rollover, 2 broken axle shafts, and alot of frame damage.

Awesome time. We didn't finish last thank god but sure didn't make it as far as I hoped. Damn lost bead on a tire. Great weekend though hanging out with the group and getting to party with the only Professional racer (555).

Oh yeah, if you watch the beginning of the race, 555 gets beat off the line by a Ford Taurus!

That looks like fun! Where did you finish up Wyatt?
After you see Beyer roll at the end of the vid I was in 1st, but had broke a shortside inner and under throttle was pulling left. Did the entire trails/trees portion of the course, had to winch once, and was on the start of lap 2 of 2 when I clipped the river bank and tore some stuff up.
We looked at the clock on the GPS 32 minutes into the race, and it was 22 more minutes before we got passed. Had I known we had that kinda lead I would have played it safer and slower. But I was on a mission after we winched a hill that with all 4 spinning we wouldnt have. We really thought we had to have people on our asses.

This year was just as much fun as last year, I ended up in 4th with only 2 finishing. Last year was 2nd behind Beyer, he'd pre-run more and caught me similiar to how I caught him.

Awesome video. That Captain Morgan must be stuck on there with double doses of JB weld to withstand some of the tree limb hits it took. :laughing::smokin:

Wyatt, are you gonna post up the 2nd half of that video? At least post up where you hit the bank. That was a nasty hit.

I will, still trying to get it editting out.

The course in the trees is actually pretty boring, and watching it will make you sick as we are darting in and out of forest. The only thing in the woods worth watching is when we had to winch due to only having 3 wheel peel. Kelly is trying to drag winch line up the mountain, and is huffing and puffing. And over the radio sounded like a geriatric trying to have sex. After that the only other noteable is the bank hit. My teeth still hurt.

In this video Jabnasty comes flying up behind me, what happened to him after that. I would have figured he would have came out on the peninsula right behind me?:confused:
He got slowed down before the water crossing, then tried to pass me back, and punted George into the water. Once I was through that water we never saw him and Miles again until you and I were going by Viagra on the way to Waterfall. I know he had gearing issues with shifting in the trans, and actually grabbed reverse at one point trying to get to the peninsula.



Heres my bank hit.
With my lead I didnt need to be running that high fast line anyway, I could have stayed lower and played it safe. I wish you could see how far right I was steered but I didnt lift and that right tire not pulling I just got sucked into it. :shaking:

:eek:

He was having tranny problems and had to stop a couple times. We passed him after the first deep water crossing and then he went flying by again. I think he was in low range at the start too.
