Jump Champs Returns with More High Flying Toyota Trucks

By -

One of the world’s most unique and exciting off-road racing events returns in 2018 with loads of hype!

Without a doubt, one of the most exciting additions to the world of motorsports in recent years is The Jump Champs. While off-road desert racing is pretty awesome in itself, Jump Champs focuses on the most exciting part – the jumps. Events are full of non-stop, high-flying action that’s admittedly rather addictive. But the best part is, anyone can race! Which means you’ll see more than your fair share of sweet, modified Toyota trucks. Including J.D. Brittain‘s 2007 Toyota 4Runner, which we drooled over in a recent piece.

Last year’s events lived up to the hype and only got better as the year wore on. And in fact, most considered the year-ending Yamaha Time Trials the best showing yet. You might think that such an incredible result might make it difficult for Jump Champs to follow up. But they’ve got grand plans for the 2018 season that promise to make it even better!

As of now, only two events are set in stone – the Jump Champs Jump Contest on May 12 and the Yamaha Time Trials on December 15. But the organizers are reportedly “exploring other options, events, and venues” with an eye toward allowing participants to “be the show.” All of which centers around Jump Champs’ mantra of giving “regular Joes” the chance to get out and show off their stuff!

Heading into only their third season, Jump Champs is quickly becoming one of the premier entertainment events on the planet. If you’re interested in being part of the action this year, keep your eyes glued to the events page for updates. Even if you don’t plan on participating, it’s well worth the ten bucks to see seemingly endless Toyota trucks catching ridiculous air!
