Raceline Wheels donated the polished trophies and kicked in first place prize with a set of Allied Rock-A-Thon Steel Beadlocks.
John Stewart, Cal4 Natural Resources Consultant and owner of http://www.4x4wire.com/ served as my Chief Judge. Stacie Albright performed as reining champion team judge -- the Team Degenerates judge (again).
Greg Mulkey mc'd with me and was our host Sponsor, Raceline Wheels, for the Challenge for the third time.
The three teams this year were Team Degenerates (1st place): Team MetalCloak JK Adventure (2nd place); and Team Poly Performance (3rd place).
The Team Challenge is like a scavenger hunt on the rigs to see who can find a trail item the fastest and get it to the judge first. Sponsors included:
Title Sponsor: Raceline Wheels
Product and Gift Certificate Sponsors: Trail-Gear; MetalCloak; Tuffy Security Products; BDS Suspensions; Inner Air Locks; Dirt Tricks (Ironman Sprockets); Bushwacker; and Trasharoo.
Crowd Pleaser Goodies: sPOD, SpiderTrax; Trail-Gear; Off Road Evolution; Wheelers for Warriors; Torq Development (Super 14); ToyTec; and OutbackUSA.
Thanks to all the teams, judges and sponsors for a great time and a fun contest -- all about landuse, saving trails and making it fun in the process.
