Bowman The Showman: Video of Christopher Bowman’s Awesome Mini Rubicon Run At TTC ‘15

Top Truck Challenge 2015 competitor Christopher Bowman flung his 1988 GMC Jimmy through the gnarly Mini Rubicon course and it earned him Second Place for that event. Regrettably, his run was not included on the Top Truck Challenge 2015 video. With that said, we’ve included video of Christopher’s incredible run here so you can see how he pulled off his impressive finish, which took only 2 minutes and 23 seconds.

The Top Truck Challenge Mini Rubicon course was approximately 225 feet of boulder-strewn goodness, but there was nothing good about it. The course tested just about every aspect of a competitors rig. We didn’t saddle competitors with a bunch of cumbersome rules. There were no penalties for winching, stopping, or backing up. Instead, we gave each competitor 5 minutes to travel as far as they could. Cones marked the course and hitting one resulted in a 30-second penalty, while a safety violation resulted in a 1-minute penalty. Traveling out of bounds resulted in disqualification at that point. For 2015, only four rigs made it over the finish line.
