SAINT GEORGE, UT - ECT Offroad Southwest Crawlfest presented by Poison Spyder had nearly 300 vehicles on the Sand Hollow OHV Recreation Trails participating in a clean-up and raffle for Land-Use. “We had another great turn out this year,” explained Steve Crabtree, Event Chairman. “It was a perfect weekend for wheeling and it was fun to have everyone here enjoying the trails and helping support keeping the land open so we can continue to have events like these.”
The event that took place January 14-16 featured a raffle with over $45,000 worth of sponsor donated products. Proceeds from the event have gone directly into supporting land use organizations including Blue Ribbon Coalition, United Four Wheel Drive Association, Utah 4 Wheel Drive Association, and Utah Shared Access Alliance who all had representatives on site to educate. Companies like ECT Offroad, Nitro Gear and Auburn Gear donated a front and rear axle set valued over $6,500. “I couldn’t believe it! I was so excited, I couldn’t even say anything!” exclaimed grand prize winner Steve from Arizona. Jason Minnoch from ECT Offroad added, “I am stoked that someone that wanted and can use the axles won, it makes the whole weekend even better!” Other large prizes included a YJ Armor package valued over $2000 compliments of Poison Spyder, a complete suspension kit from Tough Country, multiple bolt on accessories from PipeMaster Tools, Olympic4x4, iDeal Offroad, Rad Motorsports and thousands of dollars in Gift Certificates from others.
