WARN Employee Part of Winning Oregon Trophy Challenge Team
Written: September 26, 2013
Warn engineer, Scott Schoenfelder, and his four-man team, Lights Out Racing, took first place overall in the second Oregon Trophy Challenge! This off-road race took place in Tillamook State Forest September 21-22 and featured a host of stages designed to test both driver, team, and vehicle. Scott says it was a weekend-long event that "challenged our driving, teamwork, and skills." And with the wet, muddy conditions, I'm sure it did just that.
The event consists of multiple checkpoints, and various tasks including recovering a rolled vehicle, changing a tire, and driving challenges of all sorts. Scott said the team left Browns Camp at 9am and didn't get back until 10:40pm. After returning, they then took part in the night navigation stage, which didn't bring them back to camp until 2:25am!
Scott's rig is a 1992 Jeep Wrangler with the 2.5-liter and a manual transmission, a 2.7:1 Klune V crawl box, 4.3:1 Atlas II transfer case with Dana 30 front and WARN shafts and hub conversion. Out back, Scott's got a Dana 60 with 4.88 gears. The final crawl ratio is 225:1. The YJ rode on 35" BFGoodrich KM2 for the race, and has approximately a seven-inch lift. Scott's got a trusty WARN HS9500i winch with Spydura synthetic rope
on it, and WARN SDB-210 driving lights
Great job, Scott and team Lights Out Racing!
