Friday Night

While Grave Digger won 3 of the 4 events and Monster Mutt shined while winning an event as well, the WOW moments were provided by Dave Radzierez in the Amsoil Shock Therapy. In the racing final Dave bobbled just a little in the final turn and stood on the throttle, trying to make good on his pre show statement of not laying down for anyone, launched the entire length of the 5 stack plus a little more. The truck came down heavy on the right, Dave steered into it and the truck came back violently to the left. Dave stayed in the loud pedal as the truck bicycled on the side walls of the 66 inch tires, using every inch of available race track to get the truck righted and stopped. Take 2 came during the Shock Therapy freestyle run. Dave again found the truck bicycled up on 2 wheels, this time the right side, where he proceeded the balancing act 3/4's of the length of the track before again running out of room and getting the truck settled simultaneously!! A couple of outstanding displays of driving!!

Saturday 2 PM

The day ended with Grave Digger winning 3 of the 4 events, doubling down by winning racing and freestyle as well as a win in the donut contest. Switching things up with Whit Tarlton and Monster Mutt who won the donut contest on Friday, and then the wheelie contest on Saturday. The WOW moment of the day was provided by Andy Hoffman and Nitemare. During the wheelie contest Andy had the truck completely vertical and balancing on the tailgate. As Andy tried to gag the throttle to get off of the var stack, Nitemare slid off of the trunk decks and the truck toppled over on it's side.

Saturday Night

It was the usual suspects in Macon. Gary Porter and Grave Digger again won 3 of the 4 events and Whit Tarlton in Monster Mutt took the other win. Gary and Digger went 9 for 12 over the course of the weekend, while Whit and Mutt took the other 4. RB Moler and the West Virginia Mountaineer put on a killer show all weekend long and maybe was robbed of wins in the wheelie contest a couple of times and maybe even was shorted by the judges in freestyle, but he did not let it get to hm and performed admirably.
