Event Recap:

Mark MacDonald and Lucas Oil Crusader kicked off the afternoon with his first racing competition win of the season by defeating Jim Koehler and Avenger.  Bryce Kenny and the Great Clips Mohawk Warrior missed winning the Great Clips Skills Challenge last night by 1/1000 of a point.  He made up for that point today by winning his first career Great Clips Skills Challenge and a new career high score of 9.479.  Landing a perfect backflip off the eight-pack tire ramp, Becky McDonough and El Toro Loco would hang on through seven more trucks to capture her second Freestyle win of the season.  Remaining consistent through the night was key and Todd LeDuc and Monster Energy did just that.  He tallied 35 points to win his fourth Overall Event Championship of the season!
