One of the highlights of the weekend was when Mr. Silva (aka Mr. S) and some of his students from Nevada Union High School showed up with their rig that was built as a class project, dubbed "Class Act" this rig was something to see!
I have to say that those students are lucky have Mr. S as their teacher!
With the help of his students who spotted him through the courses he put on a great show considering this was his first competition and the maiden voyage for the buggy.
The excitement piqued in the crowd when the buggy caught on fire but with the help of some of the W.E. Rock crew they were able to get things under control in no time without much damage.
The event was also a fund raiser and a driver auction, which allowed the highest bidder to ride with their favorite driver on the course. All the proceeds went to Crawlin' for Crohn's.
Driver Justin Hall survived the illness and is here with us to spread the word about this awful disease.
Other competitors included some local talent and W.E. Rock pro's which gave the crowds a thrill as they watched the carnage on the courses with names like the Mine Field, Wall of Shame, Agent Orange and the ultimate challenge, the Terminator.
Danny Harp, the local favorite, descends one of the challenging obstacles in what looks to be a front end roll over waiting to happen. Piloting his daily driver he took second place trailing by only eight points against Mr. S and his tricked out rock buggy. Way to go Danny, maybe next time!
We all just have to be patient and wait for the season opener which is slated for March 2010. It will be a W.E. Rock Western National series with dozens of teams competing. So don't miss out and join us at the Urban Assault OHV Combat Zone in Oroville CA!
