Ten Questions for Top Truck Challenge competitor #14 Jeff Noggle, Medford, Oregon, '92 GMC K1500

Q Why do you want to compete in TTC?
A. "I want to compete in Top Truck Challenge because I have been watching these videos since I was 14 years old and have wanted to do it since the first one I seen. Top Truck Challenge events are similar to southern Oregon's type of wheeling with deep ruts, water bars, logs, and deep water."

Q. What TTC event are you most looking forward to?
A. "I'm mostly looking forward to the Tank Trap because it's a lot like local wheeling to me and has always looked like an awesome trail that causes lots of carnage."

Q. What TTC event are you not looking forward to?
A. "I'm not looking forward to the Frame Twister, mainly because not very many rigs ever make it through there without winching and/or breaking."

Q. Are you making changes to your rig before TTC?
A. "I'm in the middle of an engine swap currently on the truck and otherwise just waterproofing stuff. Some more braces, repairing the cruise control, and charging my A/C 'cause it's gonna be a long drive to Hollister."

Q. Will you and your spotter/co-driver be training for TTC?
A. "My spotter/co-driver and I will not be doing any practicing."

Q. If you could go wheeling anywhere in the world, where would that be, and why?
A. "If I could go wheeling anywhere in the world I would have to say Top Truck Challenge (Hollister Hills) and then Ultimate Adventure BECAUSE they are the two events you have to basically be invited to. Other places you just have to want it bad enough to save the money up and go."

Q. What's playing on your iPod/CD player right now?
A. "There's only two kinds of music, Country and Western!!!!!"

Q. What was the last movie you watched?
A. "The last movie I watched was The Hangover."

Q. Do you have an aversion to poison oak, earthquakes, or a submerged engine?
A. "I do get poison oak pretty bad, but definitely not afraid of it or a submerged engine, and earthquakes would be fun!!!"

Q. What's one thing people should know about you?
A. "I have an amazing girlfriend and two beautiful children."
