For the third year in a row the Stone Crusher team returned to the friendly confines of the Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the annual Back To School Bash. A favorite amongst fans and drivers alike, the event stirs up a lot of excitement as one of the most unique events of the year. After a great time with all the fans in the pit party, it was time for qualifying, as driver Steve Sims strapped into the Stone Crusher for his attempt. As Sims left the pits, something went awry right away, as it became clear something wasn’t right in the driveline. Upon return to the pits, the crew discoverd a broken input shaft was the culprit. The breakage would sideline the truck from racing, but the crew thrashed on the Stone Crusher all night, and were able to have the truck repaired in time for freestyle.
After a disapointing breakage in qualifying, Sims and the Stone Crusher came out for redemption in freestyle. As the first competitor out, Sims wasted no time in getting the packed house rocking with a strong start to freestyle, as he whipped the truck around the massive infield of the speedway. Sims pushed the Stone Crusher to its limits getting several big air launches over the bus stack, multiple cross-threads, and a vertical wheelstand over the cross-over landing ramp.
With some time off between events, the Stone Crusher team is hard at work at the shop in Virginia Beach, working on several projects in the coming weeks. Be on the lookout for all new merchandise, as well as all the latest news here and on our facebook page.
