This event is open to all 2WD short course trucks and the entry fee is just $10.00. The field will be limited to 15 trucks and entries are on a "first come, first serve" basis. If you want in, you'd better sign up early! Starting position will be determined by pulling numbers out of a hat; you get the luck of the draw. The Enduro will last 30 minutes, during which time teams will be required to make one battery change and one driver change. First prize for the winner is all fifteen entry fees - $150.00!
All TQs ...
will take home a special, custom award!
Trophies will be awarded to the top six finishers in the B Mains — and everyone who finishes in A Mains!
