EVENT NOTES

Fire and Ice finished one-two in the point standings tonight in Detroit as Tom Meents and Max-D Fire took home yet another Overall Event Championship. The title was Tom’s fifth of the season, three more than any other competitor on tour with Stadium Series 1. And for the second time this year, Max-D Fire captured the top spot overall without winning any of the three individual competitions. Bounty Hunter’s Jimmy Creten bested the field to pick up his first Racing competition win in four tries this season, and Camden Murphy wowed the crowd with incredible control of his Bakugan Dragonoid truck to win the 2-Wheel Skills Challenge. Cynthia Gauthier put in what could possibly have been the best Freestyle run of her career, as she topped her personal high score to give Monster Mutt Dalmatian Ice the Freestyle victory.
