The theme of youthful ascendancy arose at the Holley EFI Shootout Presented by King Shocks and Action Sports Canopies. Formerly known as the Backdoor Shootout, this event started when rockcrawling enthusiasts would gather at the huge vertical climb known as Backdoor to challenge each other for bragging rights as the quickest driver up the ten-foot tall ledge. Held adjacent to Chocolate Thunder this year, on a rock climb called “Not Her Problem,” the Holley EFI Shootout has outgrown Backdoor without forgetting its roots. ULTRA4 cars, rock bouncers from the Southern Rock Racing Series, and home built rockcrawlers duked it out to be the fastest up a series of steep, loose rock ledges with plenty of parking and viewing for the thousands of spectators on hand, and live coverage for those watching from home. The rock bouncers continued their dominance at the Shootout, with 31-year-old Stephen Rogers scaling the hill in a mere 38 seconds in his Jimmy Smith-built buggy dubbed “Unloyal”. To put this accomplishment in perspective, over half of the 29-vehicle field didn’t make it to the top of the course at all!
