Wheelin at the Moonrocks

Well two weeks ago we had a major turn out at the Moonrocks, probably 300 people for a non sanctioned event. Pro Rock Crawler Mike Shaffer called out local trash talker Rockape into a game of follow the leader in their buggies. Best of 3 wins. Mr. Rockape worked Shaffer on the Right V-Crack, Shaffer was disqualified on the first obstacle for backing up more than 3 times. On the next obstacle, Rockape had two back-ups and on the way down blew his starter out on a rock. Shaffer went through flawlessly and evened the score. Half hour later, Rockape has a new starter and the comp continued. Shaffer went first, straight up a 30 ft granite rock face. Rockape went next and ended up on his lid. Here's the pics:

Rockape showed up in style for this event w/ a stretched limo

A couple of us were trying to flip over a buddies yota when he wasnt looking, just as we had it ready to go he caught us and started pushing from the other side


This was a great event. However, some morons who most likely dont 4x4 went out there and has spray painted all over these beautiful rocks. We are having a clean-up out there in a few weeks to take the paint off the rocks and clean the place up as the BLM is wanting to close it down to motorized traffic which would be a huge loss to the 4wheelin crowd.
