FARMINGTON — The annual Four Corners 4X4 Week brought off-highway vehicles and four-wheel drive cars to the streets of Farmington this week.

The vehicles lined downtown Main Street on the evening of Sept. 6 as part of the Off-Road Downtown Takeover. The event featured a flex ramp competition at the intersection of Orchard Avenue and Main Street.

The week-long celebrations coincide with the World Extreme Rock Crawling Grand Nationals Championship that began Sept. 7 and continue Sept. 8.

The championship is at Brown Springs in Chokecherry Canyon inside the Glade Run Recreational Area.

The competition started at 10 a.m. Sept. 7 and continues through the 5 p.m. Sept. 8 when the awards will be presented to the drivers. Tickets are $15 for an adult and $5 for a child for a single day.
