I found some chipped and cracked front ring gear teeth after the Sturgis race. Rebuilding the diff and putting new seals in the front axle before U4 Nationals.

Great race! We got to Disney, did some day time and night time prerunning. The next day was qualifying in the morning and the 4600 race in the afternoon. Qualifying was uneventful, I was first off the line and back to camp to prep for the main. I got the truck staged in the back of the pack where we qualified. I worked my way to the start line and 3, 2, 1 go! I got about half way through the course and cut a tire, I drove on the flat for a while till I reached a flat spot to do the tire change. I got the tire changed and was back on course. At some point coming back towards the start/ finish I cut another tire so I rolled into the hot pit for another tire change. Got back on course with a fresh used Craigslist KM2 with no beadlock. Headed into the Little Blue obstacle I rolled the truck on a drop off section. The truck went over on the driver's side, the roof and then settled on the passenger side. U4 recovery got me winched back over and off I went again. Coming back across the river towards the start finish I lost steering. I pulled off and found a missing bolt for the driver's side TIE rod to steering arm, I grabbed a spare from the truck, got it in and headed out again. No other issued till the last lap where I got stuck in the bottom of Little Blue. Once again U4 recovery got me winched out and on my way back to the start/ finish for the checkered flag. Overall a great race at a great location.

Thanks for the race recap and you got lots of screen time during the 4600 race.

Did you have a codriver for this race? What did you think of the course overall?

No co-drive for this race, Visions or the Sturgis race.

The course was awesome! The terrain and natural obstacles in that area are crazy. The camping and surrounding area was nice, overall a great place for an Ultra4 race. We will definitely be back for this race in 2023.

It looked quite cool between the natural obstacles and the water crossings. Did you stay at Disney or at MAO?
