Trail 16 (Creekbed) Multiples Classes * Framed Vehicles Only * Trophies * Prizes

The CREEKBED CRAWL is all new for Dixie Run 31!  Finally a competition for everyone...


Is anybody interested in a little old school rock crawl competition?

 SFWDA and Southern Jeeps with 2 outstanding sponsors; Motobilt and B. Lee's Offroad will be hosting this all new competitive timed event on Trail 16 (The Creek Bed Trail) on Friday at 2 PM at Dixie Run 31. 

This competition will be for framed vehicles, Tube Buggies and extreme rigs can enter the Shootout on Saturday. There will be 2 classes , 37” tire and under and 38” tire and over.

 Trophies are being donated by Motobilt for 1st through 3rd in each class and B. Lees Offroad is sponsoring the event and donating prizes to the class winners. B. Lees is also donating a lot of stuff to the Raffle Saturday night too, so go check out the Creek bed Crawl Sponsor at Bleesoffroad.com and Check out Motobilt.com.

Use #DixieRun31 #CreekbedCrawl, #bleesoffroad and #motobilt to share your pictures and videos of the event

The course will not be extremely difficult but will be technical and will test your maneuverability and attention to what the best line is. Don't hit the cones , don't stop and definitely don't back up and you could be the winner of this event.

Rock Crawl Rules

1) Points are most important, time is only to decide tie breakers. If some one gets a perfect score in 4:59 and someone completes the course in 3 minutes but they have one point penalty , the perfect score is first place regardless of time.

2) The course time limit is 5 Minutes. Failure to exit the course in 5 minutes is considered a DNF. (Remember points are most important but you still need to finish.)

3) Lowest score wins. +10 points for hitting a cone +5 points for backing up +5 points for stopping more than 3 seconds ( If you stop for more than 3 seconds and then back up you get both penalties, so if you think you need to back up you probably should go ahead ) DNF for spotter touching the vehicle at any time while it's moving -10 for bonus gates -10 for spotter riding in the vehicle the whole time

 To enter just come to Trail 16 (the Creekbed) and look for the banners.

4 WHEEL PARTS ROUND UP CAMPAIGN RAISES MORE THAN $30,000 FOR ORBA  

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For more information contact:                                                                                                 Patrick Wagenbrenner                                                                               Brand Communications Manager                                                             PatrickW@4WP.Com  
 
 

 

$30,000 Contribution to ORBA from 4 Wheel Parts Round Up Campaign

 
 Compton, California (June 14, 2017) – 4 Wheel Parts, the global leader in off-road performance product sales and installation, presented a check in the amount of $30,872 to the Off-Road Business Association (ORBA) as part of its “Round Up” charitable fundraising initiative. The “Round Up” initiative served to raise funds to support the foundation’s goals of promoting, preserving and expanding meaningful off-road recreation on public and private land. Led by 4 Wheel Parts Regional Manager, Jeremy Komorn, the full roster of 80 stores across North America supported the successful campaign by providing customers the option of rounding up to the next dollar at checkout with the proceeds to be directly contributed to ORBA.  
 
The Off Road Business Association is an International Trade Association, comprised of member businesses ranging from large, international corporations to rural family run businesses. ORBA provides leadership and advocacy for the preservation of motorized access and the future of off-highway vehicles.  “With their dedication to ensuring that the off-road industry maintains a voice at the local, state and federal level, ORBA is performing crucial work as they continue protecting people’s opportunities to enjoy recreational off-roading,” said 4 Wheel Parts President and CEO, Greg Adler. “Off-road activities are important to our customers and we are grateful to them that they have shared in our objective of supporting this cause that is so important to us all.”    
 
All monies collected were directed to the nonprofit trade organization to further their objectives. The presentation was made this past Friday at the Light Truck Accessory Alliance (LTAA) meeting and luncheon held at the Ontario Convention Center by LTAA Chair, Kathryn Reinhardt and 4 Wheel Parts executives, Brent Goegebuer and Sam Cervantes.  
 
“For nearly two decades 4 Wheel Parts and its subsidiary companies have been passionate supporters of ORBA,” said ORBA President and CEO, Fred Wiley. “Several years ago, Greg Adler stepped up and became an ORBA board member and shortly after that, he was elected chairman. In addition to his active participation in our endeavors, this contribution is an example of how Greg and 4 Wheel Parts’ passion for the off road world furthers our collective efforts to preserve accessibility to the public private lands we offroaders enjoy.”
