November is an interesting month every year for the Stone Crusher team. As the 2011 season winds down and preparations begin for the first quarter of 2012, the team has one last hurrah in front of their dedicated hometown fans at the Hampton Coliseum. Diver Steve Sims always comes into a hometown show focused and ready to perform at the highest level. This weekend was no different, and he showed as much to start things off Friday night in the wheelie contest. Sims roared out of the pits and got the Stone Crusher vertical on both attempts, planting the back tires in the top of racing ramps. The effort would be good enough to take the win. In racing, Sims got a first round win of Grinder, before being knocked out in a close race by Son-Uva Digger. Freestyle saw a great run from Sims and the Stone Crusher. Sims wasted no time in his run, attacking the course right away with a big jump off the FMX landing ramp. From there, Sims tore across the floor with several big jumps before closing out his run with a salute the loyal fans.
Saturday’s festivities began with the pit party as thousands of fans came down to the floor to meet and greet with drivers and their trucks. After signing autographs and visiting with many of his local fans, Sims took to the track in the wheelie contest. Once again Sims put the nose of the Stone Crusher skyward, picking up his second straight wheelie contest win. Racing saw an early exit after a narrow defeat to Randy Brown and the Grave Digger. Saturday night saw another blistering freestyle run, as Sims soared the Stone Crusher throughout his run. Sims performed well beyond his timed run, giving it all for his fans, before closing out his run with a final jump over the FMX ramp to a second place finish.
