We’re not really sure what to say about this. We have our own opinions about professional wrestling as a whole, but this video just takes things to another level. Or maybe too far? We just can’t decide. Check out this wrestler flipping over a Jeep in a way that we can’t say we’ve ever seen before.

When the dust settled and all of the stages were finally completed, America’s first all-female navigation rally has come to a close. As Rebelle Rally promoters described it, there were “ups-and-downs, triumphs and challenges; great days and bad days.” Now the results are in, and it was the #125 Jeep Wrangler JK of Charlene Bower and Kaleigh Hotchkiss who earned the overall victory. Bower and Hotchkiss edged out the team of Taylor Pawley and Micaela Windham in second place, while rounding out the podium in third place was the team of Nena Barlow and Kande Jacobsen.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the growing sport of Formula Off-Road, it basically consists of over-the-top off-road vehicles competing on over-the-top off-road courses. The courses consist unbelievably difficult hillclimbs, technical sections that test a driver’s skills and even water crossings.

Choirboy is one of the most dominating drivers in the sport today, and you can watch him and his 700+ horsepower Formula Off-Road buggy do work on this course.

Day two was full of shakeups. We walked into the second official day of the Rebelle Rally with a four-way tie for first place—and we exited it with a significant points spread between the leaders. Some teams gained multiple positions in the standings—and some fell from the top to the bottom. Every checkpoint, every turn, every second, everything counts in the Rebelle Rally.

PLan B Feature
Rock crawling is not for the faint of heart.  It takes lots of skill and a fair amount of courage to risk landing your Jeep on its lid. You have to know the limits of yourself and your equipment, and this guy definitely knows what his Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is capable of, as he makes quick work of the “Plan B” obstacle at Sand Hollow State Park.
