In six years the Stone Crusher team has been all over the country performing on many of the sport’s biggest stages, and this weekend they crossed another off their list, the Metrodome. The venue has soon all the sport’s best and Saturday night was no different, as sixteen trucks took to the track to compete in a Monster Jam event to remember. The night would be the first of many as Steve Sims and company look to begin their 2012 campaign to return to the World Finals next March. Racing didn’t quite go the way Sims had hoped as the Stone Crusher saw an early exit with a first round defeat to Marc McDonald and El Toro Loco.
While the Stone Crusher didn’t get to make much of an impact in racing, Steve Sims made a statement in freestyle with a spectacular run. In typical fashion, Sims went straight into the run with a strong start, getting some good air on his first three jumps. On the fourth, Sims crossthreaded a van stack, getting great air, before a bad bounce pirouetted the truck up onto the left front tire as Sims was able to bring the truck back down to all four’s. All bet’s were off from that point on as Sims continued on with many massive leaps over the two minute run. The performance was good enough to take the lead at the time, and hold up for fifth place against the sport’s strongest competitors.
With just a few weeks until the next events, the Stone Crusher team will be busy in the shop getting ready for the winter season, as well as finishing the all new Stone Crusher to be piloted by Morgan Kane. We’ll have more on the build up progress soon, in the mean time check out our updated online store with all the great new items.
