2015 KOH Photos

If you didn't go, you missed out on a great race. Here's some photos from Backdoor and Chcolate Thunder. If you got some good photos, post them up here as well.

Jackhammer turned into a serious cluster fuck during the big race... the course only yielding 19 finishers says a lot about the struggle they had.

And yea I noticed that the solid axle cars were doing well. All of the IFS drivers (with exceptions, of course, like the Campbells, Tom Wayes, etc) seem more focused on making the car go fast in the desert rather than effective in the rocks.... the winch fest that happened on JH kinda brought that out.

What exactly happened. Didn't they start letting cars pass JH ?

Third lap cars could bypass JH using an escort. Cars on their second lap were still required to hit JH. But teams were jammed up in there hours upon hours. I'm sure it's the reason that Bailey Campbell timed out. I was reaaally pulling for Tom Wayes but something happened on the backside of lap 1 or 2 that he just never recovered from. Which is a shame, cause he can drive... he was in that traffic jam at JH... some teams were taking up to a half hour to winch up. Tom one-shotted the trail and took off.

Yeah, while we were there, they were announcing on the race radio and on the jumbo tron that there were upto 40 rigs stuck there. Though I'm not sure on who or what caused the jam in the first place.
