Unfortunately, Team Waggoner had gone the entire year without a first place finish. “We were determined to give it our all at this event,” said Waggoner. “The courses were set up with very tight turns, steep climbs and big drop-offs.”

At first glance the courses looked straight forward but as soon as the competition starts and rocks move and the terrain changes. On Saturday, Team Waggoner finished every course and were placed in the top of the pack going into Sunday.

Cody and Jim Waggoner had a rough stat on Sunday. “The B2 was a tough course that seemed to give everyone a hard time,” said Waggoner. “It was a tough climb but we were lucky enough to make it through without taking out the cones.”

There were also difficult runs. Cody and Jim Waggoner had to face deep holes dug at the base of hill climbs by the previous competitors. “I can’t complain about any bad runs especially since everything on our buggy is working great,” said Waggoner. “Our custom built CBM motor equipped with K&N filters is running perfectly. K&N performs well in the higher elevations. I have the torque I need to push me through tough courses.”

Team Waggoner kept their 2nd place event finish at Truckee and earned a 2nd place WE ROCK Series title.

In September, Team Waggoner will head to the Grand Nationals in Hannibal, Missouri.
