After a two show weekend in the Tarheel State, Steve Sims and the Stone Crusher team headed south to Tampa, Florida and Raymond James Stadium for the second major stadium event of the season. The notorious Floridian fans came out in droves to witness all the stars as they took to the course Saturday. The action got under way with racing to start off the event. In round one Sims squared off with Monster Mutt Dalmation and received an easy victory after the Dalmation was sidelined before the first turn with mechanical problems. The Stone Crusher would then fall to Grave Digger in round two to end it’s night in racing.
In freestyle Sims wasted no time getting the ball rolling as he soared the Stone Crusher over the massive FMX hill to begin his run. From there Sims worked the all new Stone Crusher as he attacked the floor with big air launches and crossthread manuevers over every obstacle on the course. Sims performed well beyond both the regulation and bonus time periods to the delight of the Sunshine State fans as he scored 20 points in regulation and 4 in bonus time for a total of 24. The score would be good enough for a third place finish in freestyle and a strong end to a great night in Tampa.
After Tampa, it’s off to Orlando, Florida and the Citrus Bowl for the second straight weekend of major stadium events. For more information on this event and others visit our schedule page.
