Barstow, CA — Thanks to the hard work and determination of MORE's Cody Jeffers and all the race teams that battled through this year, the MORE season wrapped up with a bang in Barstow at the Transaxle Engineering Challenge. The format for the Transaxle Engineering Challenge was a little different than other events on the MORE calendar. The race course was split into a North loop and a South loop that shared the main pit. The field was divided into two groups, half on the South side and half on the North side for the morning race. In the afternoon, the racers swapped courses. Results were based off combined times for both races.
