SIR Team to Participate in Sept 18 Dog Dash Fundraiser

The Crescent City Dog Dash is a fund raiser event organized and hosted by NOLA4X4 to raise funds and awareness for the Villalobos Rescue Center. VRC is the animal rescue featured on Animal Planet’s “Pitbulls & Parolees”. They moved to New Orleans in 2012 and immediately embraced the culture and lifestyle of NOLA. The rescue specializes in the Pitbull breed yet does not limit itself to only rescuing Pits. New Orleans of course has its own history with this breed with it being one of the most popular types of dogs in our city, so the two do fit together well. The cost of running VRC has grown immensely since they moved to New Orleans leaving the rescue in a daily struggle to finance its operation. The founder and owner of VRC (Tia Torres) is an avid 4×4 enthusiast, she became a Jeep owner several years ago and has since converted her two daughters to the Jeep way of life. Last year NOLA4X4 decided to reach out and offer a helping hand to some fellow 4×4 fans that seemed like they could use some assistance, working with the VRC team was a pleasant experience and we decided to continue working with them….. Which brings us to the Crescent City Dog Dash.

Participants will check in at 9 am on Sept. 18th at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans. Each vehicle will be given a stamp card with a list of five stops around the city that they will have to make. After having their card stamped at all five stops, players will conveen at the NOLA Motorsports Park.

There will be several things to do once everyone reaches NOLA Motorsports. There will be vendors on site to sell merchandise and take orders such as 4Wheel Parts, Diamond C Offroad, The Tahyo,  Searchers 4WD, KAK Art NOLA, Adrinaline Hobby, event T-shirts and more. There will also be a bounce house for the kids, an RC Crawler obstacle course, a life size 4×4 obstacle course, Go-Kart racing, etc.

Ground Pounder was up against the truck Heavy Hitter in qualifying, it was a tough decision but Heavy Hitter made a good save after drifting into Ground Pounders lane causing him to lift.  Due to safety concerns Ground Pounder was out of the fast eight.   Amsoil Shock Therapy qualified with the Rod Ryan truck.   It was a very close match up qualifying Amsoil in a solid fifth seat for racing, where he would once again meet up with the Rod Ryan truck.  Unfortunately, an electrical issue kept Amsoil from kicking the Rod Ryan truck off the pace.

Freestyle was full of momentum from Ground Pounder hitting all of the stacks and getting a nice cross thread on the very aggressive Houston track.  Shock Therapy did not compete in freestyle due to lack of time to replace a fly wheel.   All together it was a great weekend for the team.   Thanks to the thousands of Houston fans.   Next stop for Amsoil Shock Therapy and Ground Pounder  is Austin Texas.

Friday night was an action packed show with good performances from all.  Amsoil Shock Therapy would come away the “Racing Champion” against Avenger in the finals. The same two trucks battled it out in freestyle with huge air resulting in Amsoil Shock Therapy’s close second place finish behind Avenger in a “Cheer-Off.”

Saturday nite would be a carbon copy of Friday with Amsoil Shock Therapy again winning the racing championship. Another very close “Cheer-Off” between Avenger and Amsoil Shock Therapy would go to Avenger.  Thanks to the whole crew from M.A.P for an awesome event! View more event photos.

Touch a Truck event at St. Francis Xavier School in Old Metairie a Kid’s Dream

November 4, 2013 – Metairie, LA — ( –

Monster trucks, a cement mixer, a SWAT unit truck, a fire truck and a bulldozer: These trucks and more were part of the St. Francis Xavier Catholic School Men’s Club “Touch A Truck” event held on Nov. 2 on the school grounds. Kids and grownups were able to climb on, in, over and through these big trucks and emergency vehicles.
Members of the Jefferson Parish Fire Department, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office SWAT team unit, the U.S. National Guard, emergency medical workers and members of the Sudden Impact Racing Team were on hand, showing attendees the inner workings of the vehicles.
Proceeds support St. Francis Xavier Catholic School.

Event organizer and St. Francis Xavier Men’s Club member Carlos Calix said the Men’s Club wanted to hold a fundraiser that was new and different from what is traditionally done by so many groups.

“Everyone has fish frys, gumbo cook-offs and crawfish boils as fundraisers,” Calix said. “We were looking to do something different that would not only raise money for St. Francis Xavier Catholic School, but also put kids in touch with those who serve the community.”

Calix talked with a friend who lives in Connecticut and asked about the types of fundraisers that were done in Connecticut in order to get some ideas for different types of fundraisers. Calix’s buddy told him about “Touch A Truck.” With the success of this year’s event, the St. Francis Xavier Men’s Club hopes to make the “Touch A Truck” event an annual fundraiser.
