The Stone Crusher team returned to Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida for another major stadium event. Two years ago driver Steve Sims had a breakout performance in Miami as he picked up a racing win along with a second place freestyle. Sims looked at home on the sandy racing surface and quickly proved to be a threat once again to win in Miami. In the first round Sims knocked out Predator to face off with Grinder in round two. The Grinder was no match for Stone Crusher as Sims advanced to the semi finals. Sims was able to take out Michigan Ice Monster in the semi finals to move on to square off with Mohawk Warrior in the final round. Sims got the lead early and held on until the final corner as the truck slid wide, causing one tire to just miss fully hitting the final ramp, giving Sims a five second penalty and handing the win to Mohawk Warrior.
After a disappointing final round result Sims sought redemption in freestyle. Sims didn’t waste any time getting to work as he came straight out of his pit spot and jumped the first obstacle in his path. The run saw the Stone Crusher sail over all the freestyle stacks and some great crossthreads as well. Just seconds into bonus time Sims took an awkward bounce that pitched the truck over and onto it’s lid. Despite his run getting cut short, Sims managed to score a 22 which was good enough for a fourth place finish.
From Miami, it’s on to Memphis, Tennessee for the Stone Crusher team as they get ready for a two show weekend at the Fed Ex Forum. For more info on all of our events check out our schedule.
