Rockcrawlers Fought Tough Terrain at We Rock USA Series Opener in Perris, Calfiornia
Team Waggoner Racing was on the scene at the first We Rock USA rock crawl of the 2008 season. The K&N Engineering sponsored team secured a 2nd place title.
Team Waggoner Racing takes 2nd place at first rock crawl of the 2008 season
Despite some really tough courses along the hillside at the racetrack, the Waggoner’s plowed through. There were a lot of nasty rolls and carnage for a lot of competitors. The crowd dispersed several times as cars flipped over one after another.
Dirt flew everywhere at the Perris, California We Rock Event
Team Waggoner had great runs over the boulders at We Rock USA
“The silt-like dirt on the rocks makes climbing really difficult,” said Cody Waggoner. “Without good traction you are sunk.” Team Waggoner powered through two tough courses before it was time for the insane drop-off course. “It was crazy to see Cody sitting on top of this boulder knowing he was going to drive off this huge drop,” said Lindsay Waggoner. “It was such a relief to see him land on all four tires and get a lot of points.”
By the end of Saturday, Team Waggoner was in third place overall. Sunday was even hotter and there was less wind as Cody and Jim Waggoner prepared for even tougher courses. “The dust kicked up with the slightest spin of a tire,” said Cody Waggoner. “When you are climbing these kinds of boulders you need to count on your engine running as clean as possible, especially when you need the extra boost to make it to the top. Our engine ran great and we owe it to the winning combination of our custom built CBM motor equipped with a K&N air filter.”
Cody and Jim Waggoner moved into 2nd place after a couple of great runs. The last course of the shootout sealed their fate. With only twenty seconds left on the clock Cody mistakenly exited the course through the wrong set of gates. All that mattered to them was to finish the shootout with minimal errors to keep the 2nd place status.
They didn’t roll over and completed the course to secure 2nd place, which was a great start for Team Waggoner to the 2008 We Rock USA series.
