Ten questions for Brian Waddell, Battle Ground, Washington, '01 TTC Champion.
What will you be driving in TTCC?
"My same rig from 11 years ago (what's left of it): '72 Suburban truggy, 502, TH400, NP203/205, Rockwells, 54-inch Claws."
What is your most memorable moment from the year you competed?
"I guess winching through the final hole in the Tank Trap and looking over at Robin Stover and he had a head nod that looked like he was saying 'you got this.' I guess he was right, but at the moment I wasn't so sure."
If you could take First Place in only one event, which would it be?
"Tank Trap, because it is the pinnacle of Top Truck."
If you had to take a last place finish in one event, which would it be?

Besides yourself, who has the best chance of taking home the First Place trophy?
"Shannon Campbell probably has a pretty good chance."
When was the last time you barfed?
"Food poisoning a year or so ago."
What was the last time you were truly scared?
