Captain Rob Racing at the 50th Annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab Utah!
April 7, 2016 Coleman Mcvea

Easter Jeep Safari has always been one of our favorite off road events. This year marks 14 years in a row that I’ve made the trip, and I look forward to years to come! This year we got a call as we came into town to come park our KCHilights sponsored car at the KC/Nitto party. The food was awesome and the company was great. It seemed like an off-road celebrity party, with two kings, Loren Healy and Erik Miller walking around among several other influential members of the community.

The next day we got up and went to check out the vendor show. We briefly spoke to Rancho Bob at the Dynomax booth, and as in years past, they had a great looking set up. We talked to Comeup Winch representatives who showed us the newest Madx8.0 Race Winch. I’ve been super impressed with the speed and strength of their winches. We also talked to RCV, saw the guys from Low Range Off-Road and grabbed a couple sweatshirts

We had to cut the vendor show short when we got a call from the boys at Jimmy’s 4×4 saying they wanted to go hit the trail. We met them at Hells Revenge and spent the remainder of the day putting on shows for the crowds with them at the Big Hot Tub, the Escalator, and Potato Salad Hill.

On our way back to camp we stopped by Moab 4×4 Out Post to say hi to Jim Markham at the JM Rigging booth. He was excited to tell me that he will be teaming up with Comeup Winch as a dealer and offering a new race team package deal set up with them. After that I stopped by the Dirt Riot/WErock party to say hi to some old friends and talk about upcoming races and events.

My last and final day we went for a scenic drive up “long canyon” to “the top of the world” overlook. Then afterwards we went back to BFE for a quick last trail through “Helldorado”

All and all it was an epic trip, I got to see old friends and make lots of new ones. My car worked amazingly well the whole time and impressed everyone who saw it. I would like to thank all my sponsors for their support and their amazing products that make Captain Rob Racing possible! Our next race is the Tuscan Arizona Dirt Riot April 30th.
