Hagerstown MD OCT 22nd

Copied from Pirate4x4:

Vaters Motorsports presents the opening of Off-Road & Crawling Grounds…



October 22, 2011….Gates openat 8 am….wheeling till dark.



A day full of family fun,activities and camaraderie. We have wooded trails, technical obstacles and a RC crawl area. Off-Road & Crawling Grounds is the home of F&S Racing test track. This is a small area but lots to do and more to come in the future. We would like to invite everyone out to this day of off-road fun. Opinions and suggestions are welcome as we are building this venue. Off-Road & Crawling Grounds will not be open on a regular basis but will hold a few pre-announced events each year.



There will be a $10 fee per truck and $5 spectator fee. Off-Road & Crawling Grounds is located at 9950 Downsville Pike, Hagerstown MD 21740. Just 3 miles from the I-81 & I-70 interchange. Take Exit 28 from I-70towards Downsville just 1 mile on your right. Gates open at 8 am, drivers meeting and information at 10 am. Wheeling to start immediately after lasting until dark.



For more information call Todd at F&S Racing 301-991-1467.

Hopefully coming out! Are the trails only for advanced drivers? Or is there a range of obstacles?

I'm still new to it and I don't want to hold people up with my lame ass attempts lol.

Open for anyone. Just looking at your Jeep in your avatar, I will personally spot you anywhere that you feel iffy. I guarantee you will be just fine and its only 10$ to wheel 5$ to spectate. If you dont feel comfortable, just spectate. It WILL be worth it.

Please do. We are meeting up at my shop at 7am on 1044 Virginia AVE Hagerstown MD and convoying to the event. Its only about 10 mins from there. We could fix pretty much anything that breaks. I have a tow rig and access to a trailer. Should be a good time.

Heres a little video of me at Big dogs this weekend. The camera man didnt seem to keep the camera in the right direction but you can see the trails Im used to.

Hopefully this will compare.

I've passed along the info to our Lancaster County Jeep Club, not sure if any of us will make it this weekend. Is this going to be open every weekend or can a club call and schedule a day to use the grounds? We aren't that far from Hagerstown, maybe 2 and half hours or so.

Having a spotter would be great. I'm not too concerned with my jeep not being tough enough or anything. Ive just never driven a manual on tough obstacles, even though Ive never owned an automatic vehicle lol.

Gonna shoot you a PM

Please please tell me you have some form of recovery points. We had a pretty bad incident with a guy that wheeled his stock JK on street tires at big dogs. It was pretty iffy without tow points. If you dont, come along and we'll figure something out. I have plenty of straps and D-rings. But tow points make life so much easier.

Im not sure. This is the first event they are holding. Im going to get all the info I can during the event and Ill post it up and let ya'll know. Im going to try and talk them into doing this atleast once a month if not every weekend or so.

Replied to your pm. My first time ever really wheeling was in my JK. Its a stick. It didnt take me too long to learn how to wheel a stick. But I did break some shit in the process. Im sure we can coach you through it and Im not even sure if this is going to be all that hard core of a ride.
