There's some crazy action at Top Truck, but make no mistake, safety comes first. Not only do we enforce the rules that govern the Hollister Hills SVRA, we also institute our own policies to ensure everyone's safety. Further, we gathered all the competitor rigs and physically documented important safety information including, but not limited to, what types of safety restraints are installed, where the ignition shutoff is located, where the battery is mounted in each vehicle, etc. This was done to ensure a quick response time in case of emergency.
As you can imagine, Top Truck challenge requires a significant amount of logistics before, during, and after the event. For this, the staff of Four Wheeler relies on a dedicated group of people to help us out. These folks selflessly put a significant amount of time into Top Truck, and we don't take their sacrifice lightly. So to them and the companies that helped make TTC '10 a success, we offer our most heartfelt thanks.
Chris Finstad, our lead medic, John Fox, Robert Lund, Tony Morales, Debra Fox, and JP Juarez from the San Juan Batista Fire Department.
Phillip Indihar at Quality Construction, for providing the camera truck, water truck, and pressure washers.
J3 Excavation and Las Animas Concrete, for the heavy equipment support.

"It's definitely a whole lot different than what you might think, just reading it in the magazine and watching the videos. It's ten times tougher." -Darren Sinkey
