Wj in an ultra 4 race

I was watching the jeep class at the ultra 4 race today at prairie city in CA. Being a Zj guy I was routing for the Zj of course. I noticed the wj was doing well but I didn't think he was quite a contender for the top 3, especially after seeing him crawl a section of rocks while a wrangler jumped that same section and passed him.
The last lap of the race came up and the 2 wranglers in first and second were crawling that same rock section right before the finish line. Then out of no where the Wj jumps the same section he was passed on earlier and takes first place, the crowd roars and as he passes the finish line he blew his engine and smoke pours from underneath his hood while the wj comes to a stop.
Needless to say it was damn impressive. But too bad about his engine. Thought you wj owners might enjoy that little story.

I'll let him know, he'll be thrilled.

The engine is fine, the res on his rear shock came loose and sprayed oil on the exhaust!

Only Jeep to complete and win in the category at 2015 King of the Hammers Every Man Challenge..
