The Buzzard's Roost Trail - A spectator favorite, this event provides more action than a James Bond flick. The course is roughly an 1/8-mile long and contains several deep mud holes separated by twisted turns and rocky outcroppings that each driver has to negotiate while the clock is ticking. One section forces each competitor to drop down a 3-foot ledge that provides plenty of pucker factor. Some of the teams opt to winch their way down for insured safety. The time limit for the Buzzard's Roost is 13 minutes. The judges give penalty points for stopping, backing up, winching and for the spotter exiting the vehicle.
