Weekend Race Recap
usual suspects for the monster racing were put out early tonight.
Digger went out to War Wizard, and Samson succumbed to a mechanical
failure. It was Alan Pezo in Predator and Brandon Harrington in Vette
King that advanced to the main. Pezo lost a rear end off the line and
Vette King stomped him for the victory.
Rory Cambell won in the pro arena truck competition.
Team KC won the quad racing.
Wizard rolled over in freestyle to set the bar at 22. Digger came out
and flogged the race track to get a 28 point score and won freestyle.
was Digger time in the Kemper Arena!! Digger trounced the field in the
elimination rounds. He met up against last nights winner Brandon
Harrington and Vette King. It was another photo finish at the Built
Ford Tough finish line. Both trucks came off the Advance Auto Parts
Start Line with a flurry, but the replay clearly showed that it was
Digger going to the Built Ford Tough victory lane.
Cardot set the fastest time in qualifying during the Advance Auto Parts
Pro Arena Truck Competition. He then came out in the subsequent rounds
and continued setting the top time and dominated thru to the main
event, leaving the rest of the field wondering how they can compete
with the ultra fast Bubba truck.
In the main Bubba and Roger Cardot flat footed it to the winners circle.
Team KC won the Shrouts Powersports Quad War main event.
Digger was a double winner on the day taking the freestyle win as well
as the racing title. Cyborg sat on top of the leader board with a 24
point score. He was there for most of the night until Digger's 28
spoiled Jack Koburna's chance at the win.Saturday 8PM
extreme cold started to take its toll on the monster trucks in KC.
Lots of frozen parts and broken pieceds littered the floor at the end
of the night. Digger went out with an exploded rearend, next out was
Predator and his tranny. Making it to the final was Vette King and War
Wizard. The Wizard came out with the win in side by side drag racing.
Arena truck racing saw a killer final as Roger Cardot and Rory Cambell
went at it at a furious pace. In the end it was Cardot and the Bubba
truck in the Built Ford Tough victory lane.
Teamn KC again prevailed in the quad war main.
Wizard nearly did the first front flip in a monster truck! He got
tripped up on the van stack, then po goed off the front tires and
flipped like a tumbler. He made it 3/4's of the way before he smacked
down on the Hot Rod Raceway. 28 was his scorfe and the leader until
Digger came out and saved 2 near roll overs before finally putting the
black and green wrecking machine UPSIDE DOWN!!! 30 points and the win
Pezo came to win on Sunday. He put Digger out in the semi, while
Samson red lighted to give the Vette King his return to the final.
Predator was the favorite going into the final. As the light went
green, the King nailed the start while Pezo sat at the line. Vette
Wyman finally came through. He was one of the finalists or in the semi
final all weekend long, before he finally put it together and won the
final race of the weekend.
Team KC won the main again in Quad War Racing. They made it a clean sweep, beating Oakland all weekend long.
freaked in freestyle. Gary Porter wallowed Digger around the hot rod
race way to the delight of the crowd. He had to flog Digger just to
tie the perfect 30 point score posted by Dan Patrick and Samson.
Samson's doughnut was a real crowd pleaser, and the first guy all
weekend that was able to hit a gnarly burnout. Digger matched the run
to sit atop the leader board in freestyle.
