What if I have other questions?
use the contact form, and shoot us an e-mail.
What are pro teams?
The pro team option is new this year, it is for clubs that want to get together and compete as a club, or for groups of friends that want to ride together. as picking your own team does create an advantage, the price is a little higher than the blind draw registration, it is for 5-8 rigs and up to 16 people. if you have a full team it imarginally more expensive than the blind draw.
What if I do not have enough people for a pro team?
The blind draw is still the best value, and open to anyone to register, as long as their vehicle meets the minimum specs.
When is this event?
This event is usually at the end of the Spring before the Summer Heat kicks in, be sure to check the Forum for updates and registration information.
Where will this event be held?
The first Summer Games was in Slade, KY but only time will tell where this next one will be held.
Is it the same as the Winter Games?
No, you will be in the woods but other than that, its a completely different format, the camping, competing and fun will be exactly the same, the weather will hopefully be a little better!
Do we have to stay at the campground?
For the Summer Games as of right now we do ask that you camp with us. We try to keep everyone together for the sake of camraderrie, and team strategies, but we will consider the options in the future.
Will there be pro teams for the Summer Games?
As of right now probably not but we will see as the event progresses.
