Crozet Cheap Truck Challenge Saturday 11/3 & Sunday 11/4

Crozet Cheap Truck Challenge (CCTC) and OPEN run

Both existing members and prospective members/nonmembers are eligible to attend

Saturday 11/03 & Sunday 11/04

Think you and your buddies have got the scrounging skills to build a crawler for $1,200? Here's your chance to do just that and pit your creation against your fellow cheapskates, tightwads, and penny pinchers!

Find it!

Pick your favorite beater and modify it as little or as much as you want all within the budget cap of $1,200 greenbacks. Massive sheetmetal cutting, spring overs, welded spiders and dry rotted 33's are the weapons of choice here. What you end up with probably won't be pretty or particularly capable, but that's all part of the fun.

Build It!

Spent the majority of your crawling fund already? The CCTC is the perfect opportunity to team up with your fellow club or forum members and split costs. This is a great way to spend some quality time with your buddies buying and building a beater in the pursuit of cheap truck glory on November 3rd!

Awards for;
Fastest Time
Best Looking Rig
Worst Looking Rig
Whatever else the event coordinators feel like rewarding

Wheel it!

Start time for the CCTC is 8:30 AM, Teams should arrive No Later than 7:30 AM to get their rigs setup and ready. Open wheeling will begin after the CCTC event.
