I'm guessing it's where the organizers dump out a big ol' bucket of parts or even a truckload and the contestants are supposed to put it all together again and see if it will run the trails.

(I've heard it's really a way for Chris B. to get some help putting together one of those "potential to be restored" things in the museum :D)
