RUGGED MANIAC ANNOUNCES LIVE MUSIC AND DRINKS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS AS TEXAS MOTORPLEX IS TURNED INTO A 5k OBSTACLE COURSE

RM2013TS

 

RUGGED MANIAC ANNOUNCES LIVE MUSIC AND DRINKS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS AS TEXAS MOTORPLEX IS TURNED INTO A 5k OBSTACLE COURSE

The Enablers to Perform in Festival Area at the Motorplex Nov. 9

For the adventurous types who love live music, drinks, fun and mud (yep, we said mud), Texas Motorplex is pleased to host, for the first time in its 28 years, the 5k Rugged Maniac mud run and obstacle course. The 20-obstacle challenge will be set up and ready for those rugged enough to take on the mud, fire and walls, on Saturday, Nov. 9 at Texas Motorplex.

If you want to be close to the action but aren’t sure about diving in, Rugged Maniac is still looking for volunteers. Go to the website and sign up and you will receive a free registration on race day or in the future.

But if you ARE rugged enough from the start, the event features epic obstacles, live bands and plenty of beer all at a location known for being in the extreme sport business right here in the greater DFW area – Texas Motorplex.

And just announced, the live music will be performed by The Enablers, on stage in the festival area with all kinds of activities including a mechanical bull.

Registration will be available online and in person right up to the day of the event. Go to www.ruggedmaniac.com for more details.

Here’s how it works: Sign up for the race and you’ll get a chance to run our 3.1-mile course filled with 20+ obstacles designed to push you to your limits! While you’re waiting for your turn on the course, you’ll get to hang out with thousands of other maniacs in the festival area where you can ride mechanical bulls, play muddy tug-o-war, pretend to be a kid in our adult bounce houses, or just hang out and listen to the bands while enjoying some tasty food or beverages. Not only that, but each runner gets a high-quality t-shirt, free professional race photos and a beer (if 21 or over) with their registration!

Are you ready to be challenged? Get your costume together, grab a team of friends and prepare for epic fun on a 5k course filled with unique obstacles.

Rugged Maniac courses feature at least twenty obstacles constructed by an experienced crew of licensed contractors. These aren’t the pop-up kiddie obstacles you’ll see at other races. You’ll climb over walls up to 20’ high, slide down a 100’ water slide, jump over fire, crawl through tunnels of mud and face a host of other challenges all while running through a combination of forests, fields, motocross tracks and ski slopes! And unlike the other guys, we hate to see back-ups on our courses so we limit each wave of runners to 300 maniacs to avoid overcrowding.

In short, Rugged Maniac strikes the perfect balance between fun and physicality with our day-long party and award-winning course. That’s why Men’s Journal named Rugged Maniac one of the best obstacle races in the country. Want more reviews? Check out what people are saying about Rugged Maniac on Facebook.

final then went on to beat the Pro Champion Max McGlothin in the run off to
determine who will represent the South Central Division in Pomona. White’s
4.940 second pass at 140.34 was enough to hold off the quicker Mullen,
4.654, 147.89. McGlothin, Carrolton, Texas, drove his ’71 Camaro to the win
in Pro at 6.693, 77.69 over Joey Cram, Texas City, Texas, and his ’72 Nova,
8.959, 54.12 mph.

Merrill, Edmond, Okla., ran down Austin Williams in No Electronics Quick
running 6.323, 106.12 in his ’94 Camaro with Williams, Burleson, Texas,
clocking in at 6.777, 100.34 in his ’08 dragster.

Jeff Hefler will make his 4th trip to Pomona and the NHRA Summit Racing
Series National Championship taking the win in No Electronics Street. The
Ft. Worth, Texas, racer won over Jeremy Falkenbach, Ennis, Texas,
representing Texas Motorplex. Hefler went 7.648, 83.40 in his ’65 Impala to
Falkenbach’s 7.556, 89.16 in his ’81 El Camino. Hefler won the national
championship in 2010 having advanced to the national finals in 2006, 2010,
2012 and now in 2013. Both Hefler’s brother Jeromy and Dad Jerry have also
won division championships and raced for the national title in Pomona,
Calif.

John Fitzpatrick, Park City, Kan., rode his ’95 Suzuki to the win in the
Motorcycle class and will join White, Merrill, and Hefler in Pomona to face
off with the champions from the six other NHRA Divisions. Fitzpatrick went
5.489 at 122.51 to defeat Thomas Klemme, Davenport, Iowa posting a time of
5.583, 122.48.

In the division’s Summit Race of Champions event held on Saturday is was
Jeff Riedel, David Olinde, and Hunter Patton taking the wins. The Race of
Champions pits the top point’s earners from each track against each other in
head to head competition.

Electronics and the High School ROC competition taking the win in High
School over Dillon Warren, Noble, Okla., in 8.539 seconds in his ’79 Mustang
to Warren’s 9.470 in his ’87 Mustang.

Dillon faced off with Riedel in the Electronics class for the double-up but
Riedel, North Richland Hills, Texas, would have nothing to do with it,
taking out Patton with a run of 6.446 seconds at just under 100 mph in his
’77 Camaro.

Olinde, Lakeland, La., won in No Electronics when Robin Phelps, Owasso,
Okla., left early with a red-light foul start in a final that saw two Nova’s
match up against each other. Olinde ran it out to a 7.469, 91.45 mph lap
