Want to follow all of the low-buck action from the $2018 Challenge without making the trip to Gainesville Raceway? We’ll be broadcasting live from the Challenge all day on Friday starting with the morning autocross. We’ll be live with all the action during recurring half-hour segments throughout the competition on Friday and Saturday, culminating in the awards banquet Saturday night. Tune in for the action on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.

You can also chat with other Challenge fans and see updates and photos from event staff on the Grassroots Motorsports forum.

Want to see live results? As long as the track's internet holds out, we've got you covered there, too. Click here to view $2018 Challenge Live Timing.

Awesome! This was great to watch last year, and with how your videos have grown over the year should be even better.

Turns out the trophies are going to be a bit of a parking lot build, too. I finished them up at 2am, then realized I was out of silver spray paint. To the parking lot!

I hope they are live for Jeremy's "reveal" of his "yet unseen" wagon.

Wish I could be there.  I am hoping to see some of this on line.  I did see the "Wagon" on another thread.  Very crazy awesome.

In reply to Mike924 :

Probably not the same wagon.  The one I'm talking about looks like a Studebaker.  

EDIT: Yes it is on FB

is the 2x4 pointed at the windshield an homage to a certain porsche replica from a couple years ago?

In reply to sleepyhead :

Expect two "photo runs" with body and then remaining w/o body.

I too commented about that "spear"  

The thing is generally impossible to see out of.  Imagine dodging cones with this view.

In reply to John Welsh :

if it's a "conestoga wagon" riff... maybe it should be considered the "yoke" ?

*note this thread has required that I spell-check two words already
