This Weekend the SCORE championship off road racing series held round three with the Rosarito Desert Challenge. The race took place in the beautiful coastal town of Rosarito Beach just a short trek south of San Diego in Baja California MX. The race is a multi-day heat format with various race groups competing in two heats, one on Friday and a repeat schedule on Saturday.
Tech and contingency was held right on the main street through town then looped down to the beach in front of the famous âPapas & Beerâ. While not on the same grand scale as the Iconic Baja 500 and 1000 this race offered a very scenic low stress atmosphere for a race that promises to be a popular event in years to come.
The Jagged X crew arrived on Thursday morning and enjoyed the great weather while breezing through the tech line. After a nice early dinner the team wrapped up a couple last minute details and were feeling confident for the first day of racing. The UTVâs made up the second group of racers along with the class 7 race trucks. The trucks would start first but with a 5 minute gap between classes the dust was not too bad at the start. The Jagged boys pulled the short straw in the draw and were the last turbo class UTV to start. The tight twisting course would prove to be a challenge but all the while showcasing the capabilities of the Polaris RZR. Just a short 10 miles into the first lap Brandon and Co-driver Chad Hummer would have a slight disagreement in line choice for a particularly rough section. It would turn out that the choice was a bad one and the 2919 RZR would end up on its side in a deep rut off course. Chad was able to rock the car over far enough to allow the team to claw their way back onto the course with the help of their BFG KR 2 UTV tires and after looking the car over they were back in the hunt but had given up some valuable time. With each days race being barely over 60 miles the loss in time was insurmountable and they finished day one in 6th place. The crew was able to take some time insuring that the race car was still at 100% and Brandon and chad were now ready to go for day 2.
For the second day of racing the field would be inverted and the larger class 7 trucks would start in the rear. This meant that the 2919 Jagged X car would be the very first off the line. This coupled with some very useful knowledge of the course from day 1 it would allow the team to jump out to an early lead. Brandon set a blistering pace and laid down a flawless second day, leading from flag to flag with nothing but dust in the rearview mirror. In the end, the first place day two coupled with the lost time from day one would leave Brandon Schueler just off the podium with a fourth place final spot.Congratulations to the podium finishers who made the top four spots in the turbo class all POLARIS RZR. And Congratulations to Polaris teammate Marc Burnett whoâs time put him in eighth place overall in the four wheeled classes.

Howdy everyone. Wanted to swing by and invite ya'll to the 3rd Annual Holler Crawler Haunted Forest Ride, which will take place on Saturday, October 22nd at the Hwy 119 Trailhead of Wilderness Trail Off-Road Park in Bell County, KY. The Haunted Forest Ride combines two of our favorite things…four-wheelers and Halloween…and forges them into one awesome event for the entire family!!! Last year we had around 1,500 people check out the event and got rave reviews, but this year we are aiming to blow last years event out of the water! This year, the event will be attended by ATV Celebrity Brian Fisher as part of the Keepin It Real 2011 Tour. Brian and crew will be on hand all day to check out the trails at Wilderness Trail Off-Road Park, hang out with the fans, and of course, try to survive the Haunted Trail! He will be filming for an upcoming episode of Fishers ATV World on the Outdoor Channel. The event this year will feature food vendors, a much improved kids event area with inflatables and more games, live music from Joe Coe and the Realbillies, rock crawling demos at the new rock garden, an ATV costume contest, a prize raffle, a poker run and scavenger hunt hosted by the Bell-Whitley Community Action Agency, and of course the Haunted ATV Trail which will feature all new scenes and decorations!!! Best of all? The event and riding area are totally FREE OF CHARGE! Thats right, theres never any cost for any Holler Crawler events and there is no fee to ride the 9,000 acre Wilderness Trail Off-Road Park. This is the best time of the year to ride our area, and this is the one ATV event of the year that you do not want to miss! Hope to see yall on October 22nd in Bell County.

Kinarfi has a bit to go in getting his engine ready for our trail exploritory trip to south of Hanksville, UT. I'm ready but not as ready as I wanted to be because of loosing a few days do to my injury. Feeling OK now, thanks everyone. The weather south of Hanksville is running from the low 30s to the low 50s and we really were hoping for about 10 degrees warmer. Trail selection date was set to be April 1st. Would everyone be OK with setting this date forward say to April 18th. I do think that April 1st should be kept as a standard selection date each year unless an reason comes up for an exception. My current feeling is either south of Hanksville or Moab. Being that they are both fairly close to each other, those planning on coming from farther away should be able to plan for either one without changing their iterary. What do you think? Lenny
