As you may have heard before, this was the third year for Vanquish products La Guerra en Rocas Rojo, Colorado’s National qualifying event and part of the USRCCA’s national qualifying series.
Sunday was a big day in Morrison, Colorado. The day started off with super and 1.9 crawlers starting bright and early of the east side of the Red Rocks area. The courses were spread out all the way to the top of the nearby cliff side, allowing everyone to get some exercise and cook in the hot July sun. But that didn’t deter some of the best crawlers in the country from coming out and showing the Colorado locals how it was done. Five course were laid out for supers and 1.9s that challenged and even frustrated at times these top drivers. The course made the drivers really think through the lines and keep a close eye on their footing with hazards like snakes, jagged rocks and cliff edges lurking all throughout the area, but in the end the drivers showed they could brave the elements and make it through the day to see who had what it took to take the title.
In the super class Jeremy Toney again persavered and came out on the top. In second place was Josh Hicks, once a Colorado local and now native to Arizonia. In third place was Nick Justice only trailing Josh by 1 point in the final standings.
In the 1.9 class John Ripplinger of SDS Customs came away with the win, winning the class by 26 points. In second place Colorado local, Cody Johnson made the cut, and again the third place finisher was only one point behind second place keeping it a tight race for the podium, Jeremy Toney again earned himself a trophy.
As you may noticed Jeremy Toney, AKA KrawlFreak was on the podium in all three classes, this earned him the over all trophy for the event. Competition was tight this year and it could have been anyones game with some of the extreme conditions of the event, but in the end Jeremy came out on top showing how good of a driver he really is.
Thank you again everyone who came out to Vanquish Product’s La Guerra En Rocas Rojo and a huge thank you to Vanquish Products. It was a blast and I look forward to the next one.
