The Stone Crusher team didn’t have too far to travel for their next event, as they traveled to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. The Orlando Monster Jam is one of the largest annual stops on the Monster Jam tour and driver Steve Sims didn’t disapoint. With packed house of over 60,000 fans the Citrus Bowl was rocking when it came to show time. Round one of racing action saw Stone Crusher taken out by Monster Mutt Dalmation. Sims was able to bring the Stone Crusher back in round two. Stone Crusher would once again be defeated in round two, as Dennis Anderson and Grave Digger moved on.
In freestyle Sims came out charging to start off his run, skying the truck out on his first jump. From there Sims followed up with more big air along with several cross threads, leaving no obstacle untouched. After over two minutes of pushing the truck to it’s limits, the right front tire went flat ending a great run. The judges awarded Sims a 22 in regulation, along with 2 points in bonus time for a total of 24. Much like last weekend in Tampa, the score would earn the always consistent Sims third place.
Now the team heads off to Houston, Texas for this weekend’s event. Sims has big expectations to follow after teammate Darren Migues doubled down in Houston just two weeks ago.
