Every year I get the honor to work as a Judge for Top Truck Challenge and Four Wheeler Magazine. This includes not only judging the events, but also designing the courses and seting them up. Here are some of the fun scenes behind the awesome off-road event.

Yeti Concept Truck
Master fabricator Rex Bailey used the Samson™ CNC machine to build the
"Yeti" (the abominable snowman), a monster truck that drives through snow
more than 3 feet deep. The 76-inch tractor tires, Unimog portal axles, and
modified Dodge 3500 Cummins diesel truck are all joined together by
custom-designed plates that Rex made with the machine.

Cincinnati. The East Coast 4 Wheel Drive Association event includes rock
crawling, bracket sand drag racing, class sand drag racing, uphill drag

Frame Twister and Mud Pit! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here!
The brutal Frame Twister has evolved through the years, and for 2013 it
changed again. In 2012 we cut almost 100 feet of fat from the Frame Twister
for Top Truck Champions' Challenge, and this year we hacked off another 100
feet or so, which left us with 201 feet of condensed chaos. The course
began just a few yards prior to the infamous Squeeze Rock section with its
nasty dogleg that likes to flip vehicles. Once clearing the Squeeze,
competitors made a left turn and came face-to-face with the gut-wrenching,
suspension-bending log section. This section included six strategically
placed logs that are perpendicular to the direction of travel and each was
separated by deep, water-filled trenches. The log section may only be a few
yards in length, but it's an evil section that has ruined the day of many
TTC competitors over the years.
Each team had 10 minutes to complete the course. Cones marked the
boundaries and a competitor was considered out of bounds if the inside of
any one of their vehicles tires traveled past the outside edge of a cone.
Hitting a cone resulted in a 30-second penalty and a two-minute penalty
(per occurrence) resulted if the competitor violated the winch safety
It would be really boring if we constructed our infamous Mud Pit the same
each year. Besides, then competitors would know what to expect, and that's
unacceptable. Last year, the course was fast and nearly all of the
competitors made it through with no problem. This year, we mixed it up (no
pun intended) by combining thousands of gallons of water and our special
dirt. With a water quotient higher than last year, our 135-foot pit was a
delightful, soupy, tire-swallowing mess. Competitors were allowed to run
until they ceased forward momentum or crossed the finish line. Running over
a cone netted a 30 second penalty for those who completed the course and a
5-foot penalty for those who did not finish. Traveling out of bounds meant
disqualification and a two-minute penalty was assessed for safety
