HISTORY RESTORED - Retired competition rig
Short history, In October 2016, I bought a retired comp rig at Trail Hero that belonged to Shon Wilson, I was just a trail guy who was ready to get behind the wheel of a very capable rig and really have fun on the trails. But after I started to learn the car I got a call from Lil’ Rich Klein and he wanted me to come out to Sand Hollow and teach me more about her. So I did and that’s when I decided to give W.E. Rock a try in the Sportsman A class. April 2018 saw my first competition at K2 in Mason, Texas. Little did I know that would be a life changing event and one that changed my whole perspective on rock crawling and myself.

My intention was a one-off event, learn something new and go back to trail wheeling. My wife, Cindy, had a different idea. She liked seeing me having fun, so I (she) decided I needed to finish out the East Coast series. K2 had Steve Sharp as my spotter, Joe Semanchik jumped in at Rausch Creek and Steve joined me again at Kizzar’s in Tennessee.

2018 was a great year for rockcrawling, I ended up on top of the podium for the Sportsman A class in my series. 2019 saw a return to trail wheeling, well, until this happened. Fast forward to October.
