EVENT NOTES

Jimmy Creten in Bounty Hunter still is trying to find the groove in his new truck, but still managed to race to the Semi-Finals falling to eventual winner Cody Saucier in Mutant. Mutant would edge out Carl Van Horn (driving for the absent Morgan Kane) in Grave Digger for the Win and the points. Morgan Kane was home having just had his first child with his wife, a beautiful baby girl.

 

In one of the most inspiring moments of the night, Chad Fortune sealed a victory in the Great Clips Two-Wheel Skills Challenge. Soldier Fortune would nail two huge sky wheelies, one leading into a long slap wheelie across the track. The crowd was on its feet, and rewarded Chad Fortune his first big win for the series!

 

Freestyle saw Dawn Creten in Scarlet Bandit come out and set the bar. It would last for a couple of trucks until the heavy hitters would lay down the law. Linsey Weenk would complete a stellar back flip to be pegged straight up and down needing to have the track crew come and push him down. In the end Marc McDonald would steal the crowd’s favor with a run featuring huge air, a backflip, and unrivaled throttle control! FS1 Cleatus would get the win!
