jk competing @ speedcrawl

well, we ran speed crawl today....basically a local xrra/werock race, held on the course built for the 2007 werock grand nationals..... came away with 3rd place, got a trophy and 15 bucks of my entry fee back

that was a killer adreniline rush!!!!!!!! imagine all the things youve looked at on the trail and said " no friggin way!"

then go back put them all together and hit them ......and do it really fast.......i honestly have never driven that fast off road, much less over rocks and stuff

broke a driver side front axle shaft during the morning race but with the help of a few good men, we had a new set of cromo's installed in about an hour. other than ALOT of rockrash the jeep fared pretty well.

video of 2nd run


some pics

Looks like you do some great work. Would love to see some more pics and specifics of the cage project and the custom lift. Something tells me I will have to wait for that bad-ass rig to show up next year at K-rocks.

To be fair- I root for the horns- BUT I knew so many Aggies when I lived in Galveston, that were just REALLY cool people. A lot of them attended TAMG. A&M's agricultural and veterinary programs are top notch as well. Great friends on both sides of the rivalry.

My cousin's family are big TX boosters, lot's of cash to the AD, orange hummer, Tahoe w / Longhorn emblem instead of bowtie, 10 pet Longhorns in the fron yard / pasture etc.....LOL. we have fun taking shots at each other. Now the Red Retards in the family drive us all to drink heavily
