Rollin on Dirt Part 1 (Tough Truck Racing)
Rollin on Dirt Part 1. Tough Truck Racing. Filmed and Edited by Charles
Wagner. A few clips from Susquehanna Speedway were also filmed by Richard
Roeske in the stands. Shot from 2003-2006 At multiple Tough Truck events in
This isn't some 2-5 minute video, heck no! Better grab some popcorn! This
video is almost 2 hours long!
This project was meant to become a DVD but it never happened. The footage
just ended up getting too cluttered and unorganized that When I bought my
Jeep in 2006 I just didn't care to finish it and just wanted to focus on
making the Jeep run better and I'm glad of the choice I made because I now
have the very kind of Jeep I wanted with a 304 v8 that can slide around the
I decided to post this for several reasons but here's the two MAIN reasons.
1. To show what a Tough Truck event is like, so it'll give you and idea
what you'll see going to a event.
2. To encourage the importance of having a roll cage if you race at these
events. There are plenty of examples of what happens when you have or don't
have a roll cage in this video. One guy in here who rolls his Jeep Cherokee
WITHOUT a roll cage is lucky all he needed was stitches in his hand because
he could've ended up with a broken neck.
You will see vehicles of all types! Jeep CJs, Honda CRXs, one carrying a
taz doll and I have no idea what the heck kind of vehicle it was, Ford
Bronco 2s, Subaru Brats, Geo Trackers, full sized pickups, VW GTis, old
Ford Fiestas, Dodge D50s, even VW dune buggies.
Some of the events we didn't get to run at don't have us any more such as
Shartlesville, and Susquehanna Speedway and their only reason was we were
"boring". Ok sure we were boring, not the school bus demolition derby that
only had 2 buses and took an hour to do because all they did was back into
each other at idle speed, pull forward 10 feet after contact and do it
again. The crowd was booing the heck out of them, we were getting the
cheers and we were boring? Whatever.
Hope you enjoy the video! Part 2 is going to be WAY better!
