July 30th, race day!
4800 Legends and 4500 Modified class started their race at 1 PM, for 2 hours of racing and 12 laps. The race course featured a motocross style track with fast, well-built jumps and whoops leading into a woods section. The woods were tight, with slick muddy hill climbs, rocks, creeks and bounty hills. The first 4 laps were consistent, the TORQ Locker Jeep hitting the rev limiter to get up the steepest climbs. Lap 5 they blew a tire after hitting a tree. The Coyote Enterprises LLC inner beadlock/run flat saved the Raceline Wheel allowing the Jeep to limp to the pits for a quick tire change. Last lap they ended up sideways slipping down the steepest hill on course hill. As a team Cora and Erik worked through it and got down the greasy slope, then a short trip through the woods to the finish line. What an amazing feeling seeing the checkered flag, knowing they had just finished (officially) their first race in the TORQ Locker Jeep!!! Final Results, placed 5th in 4500 class, completing 6 laps!
