was the Digger show throughout the performance. Pablo Huffaker scored
perfect 30's in the doughnut contest, the wheelie contest, and
Freestyle. The only one close was when Team Meents tied Digger with
30's in wheelie and Freestyle competition. The main event in drag
racing was a route with Digger winning again. Grave Digger bicycled up
on two wheels for what seemed like forever before saving it and kept
from hitting the wall.
In Quad Wars Team Las Vegas scored the main event win and then lost the challenge extended by Team Denver.Saturday Afternoon
was the truck to beat. He scored perfect 30's in doughnuts, wheelies
and Freestyle. No one else even came close to Diggers score. The
freestyle competition tool it out of Digger. He broke the rear locker
differential leaving him with power to the right rear tire only. He
lost in the semi-final of drag racing, which put Firemouth up against
team Meents, with Eldon Depew and Team Meents scoring the victory.
