 Weekend Race Recap

A near capacity crowd witnessed a night of extremely close racing action and a super wild Monster Truck Freestyle.  The action heated up right away with Monster Truck Qualifying.  The fast time went to crowd favorite David Smith in King Krunch.  But in the first round, King Krunch was defeated by Equalizer driven by Mike Hawkins.  King Krunch did however get to come back to the next round as fast looser in the first round.  King Krunch having to go the hard way, made it to the finals to go head-to-head with Grave Digger driven by Randy Brown.  Grave Digger pulled out the photo finish win!
The racing action was just as close when the Quad Wars came to the tacky track.  Heat one went to Team Oklahoma and heat number two went to Team Texas.  The competition heated up in the main event.  On the last corner of the last lap, Team Oklahoma took Team Texas’ team captain completely off the track.  During the post race interview with Team Oklahoma, Team Texas’ captain came out and suggested that if he was man enough he would put it all on the line in a captains challenge.  The 4 lap challenge race was won over the Ford Finish Line by Team Texas. 

The final event of the night was Monster Truck Freestyle.  At the end of it all we had the two trucks from the Racing finals both tipping over during their runs.  The perfect score and the win went to Grave Digger.

The rainy, nasty weather in Beaumont didn’t stop the USHRA stars from having an awesome day inside!  The fans at the Ford Arena were treated to an action packed Sunday afternoon full of Monster Trucks and Quad Wars.  Monster Truck qualifying was first on tap.  The fast qualifier was Equalizer driven by Mike Hawkins.
Then came the qualifying heat races for Quad Wars.  Team Oklahoma won the first heat and Team Texas took the victory in the second heat.
Next, we went straight into Monster Truck racing.  The fastest truck of the day was Samson driven by Dan Patrick.  Patrick defeated Texas native King Krunch by inches.
The main event for Quad wars was really exciting.  The win went to Ben Cage and Team Oklahoma.  Much to the delight of the crowd, Team Texas came right back out and asked the USHRA officials for a Captains Challenge.  The stage was set: four laps, winner takes all Captains Challenge.  The last lap down the “Vegas Strip” back-straight Team Texas pinched Team Oklahoma into the crush cars.  The big winner was Team Texas.
The final event of the afternoon was Monster Truck Freestyle.  Grave Digger thrilled the crowd. Taking the win with the only perfect score was “Downtown” Randy Brown the driver of Grave Digger!
