Cooling down this Sunday afternoon to the final event of San Jose, Costa Rica, Track was finally drying up making it the perfect floor to have an epic race. Justin Sipes has really been fighting this track to make into the finals and finally he accomplished just that Justin’s First Stadium Racing Win here on the last night of San Jose. Moving on to two wheels skills and it was a Pirates Curse Evening, I mean sailing to the Caribbean with the balance and movement he gave as he balanced on his nose. Donuts was a El Toro Loco Show Down, with an epic cyclone of dust created post donuts! Freestyle was one not to miss, although we had some issues with some of our trucks shutting off, Pirates Curse held on to the lead for quite some time till Neil Elliot gave us the Maximum Destruction we’ve been waiting for all weekend finally after three shows he left his mark in Costa Rica Once Again! Till Next time, Pura Vida!

Beautiful, Bright and sunny day here In Costa Rica, great big crowd trickled in post pit party ready for the action that was to come. Racing coming in hot with some great matchups, Semifinals had a close race with Max D and Grave Digger leading up to our final round of Mark List, El Toro Loco in the finals with once again Charlie Pauken Grave Digger. Digger with the first win of the afternoon starting off with some consistency. Next up we have our ATV that went in lots of close and intense turns per round ending off our final lap with El Toro Locos athlete winning, it was great because he was able to complete the interview in Spanish. Two wheel skills time and boy did we have some awesome saves, Pirates Curse, Monster energy to mention a few. El Toro Loco won this event with a nice save balancing the bull on its back two wheels having the smoke come out of its nose is simply a classic. Now Last but not least its Freestyle or like the Latinos Call it ESTILO LIBRE (occasionally reminds me of Nacho Libre), Megalodon kicked us off with some great air, love seeing the shark flight, but ultimately ended with a rollover that was almost a save. Zombie, of course, was the first to hit in the 9s in the fans eyes landing the backflip. Camden Murphy came out to play with his pirate making great heights and a surprise bicycle. The main highlight in this event though was Mark Lists very first attempt and landing a Backflip it was a joyous moment for him to be able to complete such move and also have his entire family there to witness the epic moment. Great win for this Tico (what Costa Rican locals are called) Congratulations to Mark List this afternoon!

San Jose, Friday Night. The Estadio Nacional lends itself to beautiful views to the mountains that disappear after the sunsets. Track Conditions were rough since we had some rain earlier today, Dirt crew was working hard prior to the show to get it to drivable conditions. Kicking off racing with an intense head to head as the drivers were all trying to get a feel of the track, some skidding, some losing speed with fear of rolling over, but we did in fact have our racing champion Friday night : It was Charlie Pauken in Grave Digger proving how sometimes no matter the talent its the experience in situations like these that will lead to a win. Following ATVs having a bigger track for them in this stadium format led to more excitement, we had our winner in a muddy mess PJ Hall with team El Toro Loco, helping him gain those points thru out the night. Pirates Curse had a nice save after standing on its nose, but it was no doubt that Grave Digger would come out to play taking another win Friday evening. Due to weather conditions, donuts were cut. Ending it with bang Freestyle, Zombie's Scott Buetow did an amazing job, great air and wowing the fans with a epic Backflip, clearly why they call him the King of the Backflips.
