For the first time ever, the Stone Crusher visited St. Louis, Missouri’s Edward Jones Dome. The building known as one of the midwest’s biggest annual Monster Jam events always has the biggest stars in the sport and this year would be no different when Steve Sims and company rolled into town. Despite the long distance between Orlando and St. Louis, the team was able to get the Stone Crusher back to 100% after the damage it received in a stellar freestyle run at the Citrus Bowl. Their efforts paid off as Sims wheeled the Stone Crusher to a strong overall performance in St. Louis.
Racing would start off the night’s competition and Sims was strong right out of the gate. In round one, Sims would take out rookie Taryn Laskey and the Tasmanian Devil to advance into round two. His round two match up, pitted the Sims against short-course off road star Todd LeDuc. Sims and the Stone Crusher defeated LeDuc and Metal Mulisha to move on to the semi-finals. The semi’s had a tough match up, as Sims was up against Linsey Weenk and the Crusader. Sims pushed the Stone Crusher hard, bicycling the truck in the first turn and was unable to pick up the time lost, handing the win to Weenk.
After a good start to the night in racing, it was time for freestyle. The huge floor of the Edward Jones Dome gave Steve Sims and the Stone Crusher plenty of options to choose from for a two minute freestyle performance. Sims took advantage of the plethora of obstacles and put down a good run. In typical Stone Crusher fashion, Sims had plenty of big air throughout his run with many big jumps. After pushing the Stone Crusher for over two minutes, the judges awarded Sims a score of 24 for a solid run.
With another weekend in the books, Steve Sims and the Stone Crusher will be making their first visit to Hartford, Connecticut for three shows at the XL Center this weekend. In the meantime, check out the official Stone Crusher fan page here.
