I want to thank everyone that came out to the Devil’s Backbone Scale Challenge Yesterday. I think we had a great turnout even if the weather wasn’t in full cooperation. The trails were very challenging and I wanted to make sure we all got plenty of drive time.
I want to thank Bill, who came out with me Saturday to stack rocks and clear trails to make this event possible, I couldn’t have done it without him!
I also want to throw a HUGE thank you to Larry and his family who let us use their property for the event. Without them, the event literally could not have happened.
Big Shout-out and Thanks to Jason @ Krawl Off-Road RC for sponsoring the event, and sending a Team driver down here to run with us.
I want to apologize to a few of the new guys, as this was a grueling course, but I will also add, that the hard courses will make you a better driver in the long run! I know I had my fair share of help from my teammates and I did my best to help them along the way also. Thanks again for coming out and I hope everyone had a great time! Looking forward to the next one!
