2016 Summer Event #2 Hot, Humid, and Full of Great Racing

Summer Event #2 was held outside at the Home of Bigfoot in Pacific, MO on July 10th, 2016, and despite the 100 degree heat index (with terrible humidity) a near record crowd of 59 monsters showed up to do battle. We had 25 Modifieds, 24 Outlaw Retros, and 10 Sport Modifieds.

The first sessions of racing throughout the day were run on a re-creation of the infamous “Louisville Figure 8″ by all classes. The second featured a PENDA-style drag track for the new Sport Mod trucks, and then a modified Vegas J for the Outlaw Retros and Mod trucks.

Josh Rhodes won the first session of Outlaw Retro in Excaliber. This was notable as despite Josh being very successful with the club since its’ inception, this particular truck hadn’t won a full session of racing ever….until yesterday, that is! Chris Blank would go on to pilot his Orangefoot to the win in session 2 and based on overall performance would also nab the Racing Championship for the day.

The day also saw the debut of the new Sport Modified class, which is aimed to provide a more affordable alternative to the high dollar Modifieds, while still encapsulating the spirit of competition much like the early/mid 90’s PENDA series provided. Doug Welker went on to sweep both sessions in UFO, thus winning the overall Racing title for the day as well.

The ultra competitive Modified class saw Josh Rhodes take the Figure 8 win in Grave Digger and Danny Maass taking the Vegas course in Quad Chaos. The overall Racing points were extremely tight, with Danny Maass eeking out 7 rounds to several others tied with 6.

The day ended with freestyle, where our new sets of crush cars were put to good use as obstacles. The competition was tight as always with Bob C. taking the victory in ACRC Bigfoot with a score of 27 to runner-up Danny Maass’ 25.

With 2 events now in the books, the points races have started to take shape. They are tighter than they’ve ever been and it looks to stay that way all summer long.

Up next is Summer Event #3, to be held August 21st (tentatively) at Bigfoot. This event is extra special as it celebrates the two year anniversary of our first monster truck race. We hope to see you there!
