This past weekend started off a new year and brought about a new era for the Stone Crusher team. In Detroit it was Steve Sims getting to drive his first show behind the wheel of the all new Stone Crusher that was completed during the off season. The newly designed Patrick chassis truck performed well in it’s first event as Sims looked fast in racing with a solid qualifying pass and a first round win before falling to eventual event winner Lee O’Donnell and Ironman. In freestyle Sims got a good chance to get a feel for the new piece getting some great air and crossthreading across the track throughout his run. Sims’ efforts would score a 21.
Meanwhile, in Des Moines, it was Darren Migues in the drivers seat of Stone Crusher for the first time ever. Migues had no trouble getting used to the Stone Crusher as he had a great start to the new season. The weekend saw Migues put the Stone Crusher on the tailgate several times as he won two of the three wheelie competitions. Migues also performed well in freestyle picking up a win in the Saturday afternoon event.
Next weekend is another busy weekend for the team as Steve Sims will be in Greensboro, NC for two shows at the Greensboro Colisum while Darren Migues will be in San Antonio for two shows at the Alamo Dome. For more info on these shows and others check out our schedule.
