Horsepower and Carnage! Oh, and a Template!

What a day!
I can still feel the vibrations of the horsepower!!

Although it didn't start off on a very good note. I awoke with a nasty headache that aspirin and caffeine couldn't fix. I was getting concerned about the afternoons events if the headache wouldn't go away. By show time it was pounding away, but I just had to go the boy was counting on me and I really didn't want to miss it either!

What a show it turned out to be! Our little bitty arena is just barely big enough to play arena foot ball, basketball or hockey in yet alone let the big guys go all out. We had six monster trucks all crammed into this little area but by gosh and by golly they put on a show! We had two female drivers this year!

This first picture is of one of the girls doing a backward somersault. She actually stood the truck on end for a good minute and was rocking it trying to get it to come down. Well it came down! She had buried the wheelie bar in the dirt and was just barely touching the car with the rear wheels. After they got the truck righted she climbed back in and drove it out. Her husband who was also driving his own truck and competing against her said that it is only the third time she has driven and the third time she has rolled it!

Dream Catcher broke his rear tie rod on his last run.

Close encounters with Bigfoot!
During the side by side racing, Bigfoots zest for victory almost cost two trucks there opportunities. The officials had to use the kill switches to kill the trucks to stop this one from happening. When all was said and done there was a mere inch max two between the trucks. The dude in the picture was under the pink truck working on it when Bigfoot came a calling!

The arena is so small the trucks only have about 4 truck lengths to get up speed and to be able to stop again on the other side of the jump. Bigfoot did a great job of getting some air! None of the others did, well one other got some goofy air but we'll chat about that another time.

Thank you!! It's sounds like you both had a blast at the show!! Zack keeps seeing commercials for the upcoming show here, and mentions that he wants to go, but I don't think he could handle the noise right now.
