    After sealing the trail class Central Series Points Championship in the W.E.Rock Dirt Riot Endurance racing with a win in Frederickburg, Tx on June 1st. Jason Davis of CRAWLfish Racing decided to take the 17hr drive to Cortez, CO July 4t weekend to race the final race of the Mountain & Southwest Series. 20 racers in four classes raced heat #2 in blistering heat & dusty conditions making for a grueling race. The 1st lap were we chasing dust the entire lap but still only 18sec off the leader. One climb we came out of the dust & we were in the middle of a field with no idea if it was left or right. Lap two back in the rock canyon the tricky boulder hung us up putting the rig sideways in the trail but only down for about 20secs. On lap three something seemed to be lose & the engine coughing losing torque every know & then. By lap 4 we had enough of a lead we decided to take it easy so we could get the checkered. Our final lap thinking 2nd place was on our tail we got back into hard racing mode all they way to the checkered flag. Where the Texas boys took 1st place & 2nd overall for MOD/Stock trail classes. After getting into the pits our engine problems was a busted driverside motor mount.

    Being the only racer running General Tires in W.E.Rock. I have to add I have been on the same set of tires all season with no failures. These tires have preformed great in the rocks (wet & dry.) And doing what they do best in the dirt.
    We are looking to attend the last race of the Southeast Series in Union City, GA this August. Hoping to clinch the National Points Championship in trail class which takes place in October in Bridgeport, Tx. Our rookie season in Dirt Riot has been a great one so far.
