Poker Run 2 - Event Recap

The second poker run Deuces Wild is now in the books. The winners were - first place with straight flush, Toyota, Second place with 3 of a kind, Raptor, and Third place with 2 pair, Toyota..

See all the images of the trip here:


Start of the poker run was bright and early at 7:30am in Fernley. Everyone was checked in and decals and event packets passed out. After a short drivers meeting the group made their way to the start of the trails and started the air down process. The group consisted of 30 vehicles from, Ford F150, Raptor, Dodge 3500, F350's, Jeep's, Toyota's of all forms from Land Cruiser, Tacoma, Tundra, and FJ.







The first leg to check point one was the slowest section of trails followed by a great whoops section. This was also the rockiest section and led to two participants getting flat tires. Working together these flat tires where quickly changed thanks to an impact gun and a teenager with a strong back HAHA . All the participants made it to the first checkpoint for a group photo and social time.







Heading to check point two was the last of the rough trails. With all the recent rains the washouts that were marked in pre-run were larger and in some cases deeper. This slower section was short and ended on a main trail that allowed participants to open things up to checkpoint 2. One of the Toyota’s on this section broke a shock mount as he just put the truck together the weekend before. Luckily, he was able to remove the shocks and just run the torsion bar. Everyone made it to the checkpoint 2 at the desert oasis.







Checkpoint 3 was the longest running section. This was all about speed and making dust. The last part of this section heading into checkpoint three was the fun section. Here the group went up and down rollers for a mini desert rollercoaster.







The last leg of dirt to checkpoint 4 was a mix of smooth trails and rougher trails from the recent rains. Biggest issues on this leg was the dust that was not clearing out, as there was no wind clear it off the trail. One of the Ford Raptor participants on this section was stuck in a rut and the Jeep known as “RRT” Raptor Rescue Team pulled him out. After this rescue, the rest of the trail was covered quickly and everyone arrived at checkpoint 4 only 40 minutes off the predicted time. After 158 miles of trail covered and very little issues, everyone started to air up to head to the restaurant for checkpoint 5. At this time, one of the team members tried to go in and out of a bowl of mud and promptly got stuck. Guess who was happy to yet again rescue a Raptor. You got it RRT to the rescue. That means in two events he has saved three raptors.





Full length video is being edited and will be posted in the coming weeks. For now here is some clips taken by the drone at checkpoint 1 whoops section.
