Interested to see the turnout with all the schedule adjustments and changes to the points series for this year. Only 17 racers registered in total with the 4400 class having the most racers at (6) so far online. It is a good track either way and should be fun. I'm sure they will try and lure more racers to register as it gets closer if the list doesn't keep growing.

It's on the calendar but from a different thread.

We plan to be there Wednesday through Sunday. Help the park however we can to get everything setup between Wednesday and Friday before Qualifying then watch the races after that.

I'm also interested to see the turnout. It's up to 19 total as of this post, but Ultra4's website is notoriously slow/bad about updating the registration list. But I've heard all the Campbell's, the Miller's/Blyler's, Rufus Racing, Levi Shirley, Derek West, a couple of Jimmy's 4x4 rigs, and a handful of others were all planning to come to AOP.

After talking with a bunch of the racers last year, they all spoke highly of the track and wanted to come back (when it was less muddy of course).

BTW, they are doing the Livestream for the race this year. So for those that can't attend, you can still watch from the comforts (air conditioning) of your own place.

Being one of the few points races this year it should draw out some of the big boy ifs rigs that are still wanting a "championship" this year, but it's gonna be hard to beat a miller chassis at aop in my mind.

I plan on being there to atleast watch some racing, maybe do some wheeling.

I saw on Facebook where a TON of racers were all saying the same thing. That they don’t bother registering for races until the week before since so many have been cancelled. But they were all planning on being there.

Rufus Racing from Dallas will be there with 2 4400 cars and a RZR. Quite a big group of us headed out. We really enjoy seeing other off road parks across the country, places we might be able to go to except for being involved with race team. Look forward to seeing all of you guys. Feel free to stop by and say Hi!!!

We REALLY appreciate the support of the parks, staff, and volunteers that make this series possible!! Our familys are a big part of the team and truly enjoy the whole experience!!!

As of this post there are 36 registered drivers in various classes. I know of a handful of other drivers (remaining Campbells/Crofts, Bailey Cole, @BRUISER, etc) that are all headed to @adventureoffroadpark for the race that have not registered yet. Should be a great turnout of racers.

Who all from here is coming to watch, race, assist, ride, etc?

As of right now, Chip is cleared to drive. Team getting everything ready, wives planning meals, tow rig and trailer maintenance under way, will do oil change in my motorhome this weekend which is a giant mess of a job. Fumoto valve will be here today.

Lots of big names showing up, weather does not look good right now but fingers crossed weather peeps are all wrong.

If none of my buddies want to go riding locally, I thought about riding up there. Will there be much trail riding going on? Or just watching the qualifying and racing?

Last year and earlier this year for the prorock or whatever it was scalled they shut the right side entrance down and a few random trails with the big one being 2 all the way to 2.0 coming down. you can ride the upper side and left side during the race.

Gotcha. I've never been to AOP. Is the area that's open good riding for a guy like me in a YJ on 35's?
