For many 4-Wheel Jamboree participants, the Tough Truck Challenge is the weekend's highlight featuring two racing classes.
A stock class allows registrants to enter their daily-drivers and run against the clock. Trophies and bragging rights are the rewards for superhuman displays of driving skill.
Competitors who take it to the next level enter the Modified Tough Trucks. Although these vehicles' bodies look stock and their engines are naturally aspirated, Modified Tough Trucks are otherwise heavily worked over to handle the bumps, jumps, corners, and hazards inherent in each obstacle course. The Modified race format starts with qualifying runs. Then the 16 fastest qualifiers are seeded for the elimination bracket. Side-by-side racing narrows the field until a winner is crowned.
