OROVILLE, CA SEPTEMBER 28, 2010: The Urban Assault OHV area held the 5th Annual Surplus City Fall Mud & Crawl over the weekend of September 11-12, 2010. The event, open to all levels of competitors, from no prior experience to the pros in the unlimited class was a great success. From Rock crawling to mud drags on Saturday and Sunday there was plenty of action to be seen. The Teeter Totter competition on Sunday drew a large crowd, watching to see who could accomplish such a difficult feat. Included in the weekend long events was a display of the local police, fire and military vehicles in honor of the fallen 9/11 victims. The big hit of the weekend, for kids of all ages, was the opportunity to ride in the Airborne Ranger Monster Truck.
The Urban Assault arena’s man-made rock crawling course tested the pros and gave the new crawlers a good challenge. In the Unlimited Class, Aarron Sykes took 1st place followed by Cody Minter in 2nd and Jake Pendergrass in 3rd. In the Super Mod Class Cody Minter took 1st, Ross Glave took 2nd and Brant took 3rd. Closing out the Rock Crawling event in the Modified B Class was Damien Granados in 1st place, Keith Brown in 2nd and Ken MacGregor in 3rd.
The Mud Drags were a popular and a fun event to watch with mud flinging everywhere. The Stock Mud Drag Class winner was Kevin Burns, a brand new competitor. In the Super Stock Class, Richard Lozano took 1st place, with Ashley Echos and Trisha Deomasi following in 2nd and 3rd place. In the Pro Stock Mud Class Gary Upton took 1st, Kevin Burns took 2nd and Scott Brooks took 3rd. The Unlimited Mud Class winner was Gary Upton, with Kevin Burns coming in 2nd and Justin Okley in 3rd place. The final class, the Diesel Mud Class, went to Jerrad Compton.
The teeter totter and monster trucks were a big hit at the show this year. It is always fun to watch someone try to balance on the teeter totter. The Airborne Ranger Monster Truck was allowing people the chance to ride in a monster truck, which is always a big hit with families. Fire, police and medical vehicles were on display in honor of the fallen 9/11 victims and children were allowed the opportunity to try on a fire suit and sit in a fire truck!
Thousands of dollars in products were raffled off with all the proceeds going to the Butte County Search and Rescue team. The Butte County Search and Rescue Team is an all-volunteer, non-profit, non-tax-supported auxiliary team of the Butte County Sheriff’s Office.
