Cantina-for-the-Con-8-22-13PLACERVILLE, CA: The 9th Annual Cantina for the Con, who’s proceeds go entirely towards supporting the future of the Rubicon Trail, has always had the support of the Offroad Community, local and far.  Raceline Wheels and Falken Tires have joined for the second year to be the presenting sponsors.  “We really appreciate everything that the Rubicon Trail Foundation does to keep the Rubicon Trail functional so we can come and enjoy it the couple times a year we make it up here,” said Greg Mulkey Raceline Wheels Offroad Brand Manager.  “We came to this event last year and it was an absolute blast!  Really looking forward to seeing everyone again.”

Join offroad Rubicon Trail users, the board of directors and companies from across the country for a weekend of Tacos, Vendor Midway and Activities for the Whole Family.  Additional event sponsors who will also be at the Loon Lake Spillway include RuffStuff Specialties, 4Wheel Parts, Genright Offroad, Metalcloak, Marlin Crawlers, Jaws Gear & Axle, Pitbull Tires, Cal4Wheel, CORVA and local Sacramento radio sponsors 96.9 the Eagle and 98 Rock.

THUMB-Tables-Moab-Diner-3-27-13Earlier in the month, we posted a news item about the BlueRibbon Coalition working to raise funds through the sale of an Easter Jeep Safari-themed t-shirt that would be sold in the Moad Diner. The shirt, designed by RCH Designs, would generate money to help keep trails open to four-wheeling in Moab, Utah.

We at Off-Road.com try to stop in at least once to the Moab Diner for some of their famous green chili, and we were pleasantly surprised to see some off-road-themed tables throughout the joint during the 47th Easter Jeep Safari.

Minneapolis – The field for the Best in the Desert Silver State was impressive, with more than 20 side-by-sides staging to challenge this 300-mile, single loop race.  Matt Parks drew a very good fifth starting position with Brandon Schueler starting just behind in the eighth spot.  Bill Schueler and Craig Scanlon lined their nearly-stock, 1991 RZR XP 4 sportsman entry at the very back of the field.

This year’s course was very fast with lots of smooth sections where top speed was a true advantage. There were plenty of rocky sections to keep every driver on their toes. Schueler, in the 1919, was able to get off to a good start and make his way to the front of the pack early where he would lead for a good part of the race. Parks also was in the hunt and running near the front but had a mechanical issue which cost some valuable time. In the end, Mark Holz in the Coastal/HRP RZR XP 900 would take checkered flag and Schueler would take a much-needed second place. Parks and the 1932 finished in mid-pack in ninth position.
