Ten questions for Top Truck Challenge 2015 competitor Adam Furlong from Pemberton, British Columbia, Canada, driving a ’79 International Scout II.
Q. Why do you want to compete in TTC?
A. “From the first time I saw TTC in the magazine I was hooked! Over the years I finally was able to build a rig worthy of TTC.”
Q. What TTC event are you most looking forward to?
A. “Tank Trap. I have always liked the Tank Trap because it takes driver skill and a well-built rig just to finish.”
Q. What TTC event are you not looking forward to?
A. “I'm looking forward to all of the events.”
Q. Are you making changes to your rig before TTC?
A. “The Scout is getting AxleTech 4000 axles this year with some 54-inch Interco Boggers and Profender coilovers and bypass shocks.”
Q. Will you and your spotter/co-driver be training for TTC? (If so, please elaborate...)
A. “Yes, with lots of late nights wrenching and heavy lifting.”
Q. If you could go wheeling anywhere in the world, where would that be?
A. “Iceland in the winter with the Scout. Iceland has endless snow wheeling so you could spend days wheeling different terrain.”
Q. What's playing on your iPod/CD player right now?
A. “I listen to a bit of everything from Snak the Ripper to Die Antwoord to The Lumineers to Primus. So as long as it's not radio pop, I'm happy.”
Q. What was the last movie you watched?
A. “That's a hard one because we don't have cable so we watch a lot of movies. The best one lately was Moto 6 and the newest Slednecks.”
Q. Do you have an aversion to poison oak, earthquakes, or a submerged engine?
A. “Well, I have never had to deal with poison oak, nor earthquakes, so my fingers are crossed that I don't come across either, and for submerged engines, that's just never good.”
Q. What's one thing people should know about you?
A. “If there's one thing that someone should know about me, it's that I always want more power, whether it’s a car, truck, dirt bike or snowmobile. Really, anything with a motor. I have a hard time leaving anything stock -- I like to make horsepower!”
