It was a hot, dry and dusty day but the spectators were rewarded with plenty of action and carnage. Lots of mechanical mayhem, a few rollovers and the ever popular blindfolded driver kept everyone entertained. The courses were very technical and pushed the competitors and their rigs to their limits. And in some cases. . . beyond.
This was Gulches first competition exclusively for the ladies but I don't think it will be the last. They really showed out and provided some great viewing and fierce competition in every class. They proved that it is not just the guys that can wheel and I am amazed at the driving skills they displayed. I can't wait for the next Powderpuff!
is better than working, but it ain't real great either. Especially, if your day (in my case) ends after only a couple minutes of wheeling. After my generator died and the mog was drug back up to the parking lot, the other three rigs in our group headed back out to find more mechanical mayhem. While I waited for my
tow rig and trailer to arrive, Bach managed to suffer a catastrophic failure in his PSC steering pump, Josh burned up the alternator-to-battery cable while winching Bach and just to join in the fun, Chris' fuel pump gave up the ghost. We were 0 for 4 that day! I managed to take a few pictures before my day was shot.
