What a great event!!!

Rockstomper Racing finished 13th out of 35 in the Unlimited class after a slightly off kilter start. They timed out on the first course - which only a handful of the the moon buggies were able to complete - and on the second course they had a mechanical failure 6 minutes into the course.

It was very frustrating but Shawn Pagan and Scott Ellinger came back strong on their last two courses on Saturday, and did an AWESOME job on Sunday which pulled them into a 13th place finish.

The Rockstomper Racing buggy had lots of comments on the Sway-A-Way 2" air bumps, and they worked like a dream! On any verticle climb the rebound on a bounce was almost nill. The compression and absorbtion of a hard hit helped keep the tires in contact with the rocks, and it definately payed off on A3, which was a huge verticle climb. 

The guys have some issues to work out with some new components before the next event in June.. but rest assured they intend to be on the podium not in the middle of the pack.



The air bumps also helped on the downs with the hard impacts.



Lil' Rich created some insane courses in Globe. Absolutely amazing some of the lines he decides on.
