Friday Night

Nicole Johnson and Scooby-Doo provided massive amounts of metal carnage tonight!! During the Wheelie Contest it looked like the metal carnage was going to come early as Scooby got squirrelly on hit 3 of 4. Nicole was able to save that one, but later in the Obstacle Course Challenge, she couldn't gather in another wild moment, sending the truck in to the dirt on the right front, folding the steering rams and 4-link bars under the truck. It will beat an amazing feat if the crew can return the truck to action. JP Ruggiero supplied the other wow moment in the Wheelie Contest. Dynamiting the brakes into the face of the hybrid track, and then hard on the loud pedal, JP nearly completed a back flip!! Two thirds of one, anyway!

Sunday 2 P.M.

El Diablo and JP Ruggiero fought their way to the BKT Tire Victory lane in the Freestyle competition, breaking the streak of Jon Zimmer and Grave Digger. Zimmer and Digger are now 11 for 16 over the course of 4 Monster Jam events and each containing 4 competitions. Jimmy Creten and Bounty Hunter had been the only team to knock Digger and Jon out of victory lane this weekend, having won all of the Donut Competitions.

Lupe Sosa and El Toro Loco provided a wow moment to day. Bicycling up on two wheels and then running out of the required real estate to save the truck. Massive amounts of body damage on the Bull, but Lupe's crack team will have it back and ready for action for tonights final show in Hildago.

Sunday Night

After several crashes this weekend, Lupe Soza and El Toro Loco finally just shed the broken and busted body. Lupe rolled the truck one more time tonight to leave just the tube frame of El Toro Loco. Jon Zimmer and Grave Digger joined in the fun in shedding bodies as well. Earlier today Zimmer and Digger came down hard on the rear of the body/frame in the wheelie contest, giving Jon a severe jolt. Tonight he whacked the loud pedal a little harder, clearing the obstacle that shocked him earlier, and when he came back to earth the body took the brunt of the force and dispersed the energy away from the driver but demolished the body. Later in freestyle, with the torrid pace Jon keeps, the body disintegrated leaving Digger bare to the frame!!
