I got an email from John Cappa. There has been a few rule changes this year. The times to run each event have been shortened, in some cases cut in half. The biggest change is only the top 10 in points will run the tank trap plus the voted in competitor. Anyone out of the top 10 has to sit teh trap out and just watch.
Top Truck Champions’ Challenge will contain seven events (listed below). All competitors will have the opportunity to compete in Tow Test, Frame Twister, Mud Pit, Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, and Mini Rubicon. The top ten points-getters from the aforementioned events will advance to the Tank Trap competition. Scores will be posted Wednesday evening so that Tank Trap competitors know who they are. If one or more of the top ten points-getting vehicles is unable to compete for whatever reason, the next highest point-getting vehicle(s) will advance to the Tank Trap. The voted-in reader at Top Truck Champions’ Challenge will not be eliminated from Tank Trap unless his/her vehicle is no longer functional. The voted-in reader will run with the Top 10. If the reader is able, we will run 11 vehicles in the Tank Trap. If not, only 10 rigs. You will be advised of the detailed rules and scoring of each event at a driver’s meeting prior to each event; however, here is a brief overview:
