It didn’t take long for the Stone Crusher team to get back to work following the Monster Jam World Finals. Just two weeks removed from the end of first quarter, the Stone Crusher was back in action as the team made the quick trip to Raleigh, North Carolina’s PNC Arena. While the Carolina Hurricanes said fairwell to their season, Morgan Kane and company greeted the upcoming Summer season with three Monster Jam events in the home of the Carolina Hurricanes and the NC State Wolfpack.
Kane came out firing on Friday night with great results, starting with a second place wheelie effort. In racing, Kane was quick off the line all night and picked up the racing win. While his high flying freestyle effort was cut short by a broken spindle, Kane still managed to score a third place freestyle to end the night.
After crew chief Tommy Powers and the rest of the team got the Stone Crusher repaired, it was back to work Saturday afternoon for the first show of the day. Morgan Kane got right to it in the wheelie contest and pointed the truck straight up and down earning the victory. Kane was once again quick in racing, making it into the finals for the second time, but came up just shy of the win. From there it was onto freestyle where Kane kept up some great momentum, but a couple bad bounces kept him from hitting the FMX hill which hurt his score which was good enough for third.
Saturday night marked the third and final show on the weekend and Kane continued his consistency as he scored another second place finish in the wheelie contest. While the Stone Crusher was held out of the finals for the first time of the weekend, Kane let it all hang out in freestyle. The performance was on the ragged edge right from the start as Kane never let up throughout the run with several huge leaps as he slid the Stone Crusher around the floor on his way to the freestyle win.
Next stop on the schedule brings the Stone Crusher back to Florida. This time the team visits Florida Sports Park in Naples for three events. Click here for more info. Also, make sure you get your Stone Crusher gear right here!
