As the 2012 season draws closer to an end, it was time for one final hometown event to end the year for the Stone Crusher team as they made the quick trip up to Hampton, Virginia for a two show weekend at the Hampton Coliseum. With just one final chance to let it all hang out before the 2013 season, driver Steve Sims did just that all weekend long inside the Stone Crusher, thrilling fans in a fashion they’ve come to know and love from their local superstar. Sims dominated the wheelie contests, sweeping the weekend with two victories as he stood the truck straight up and down beautifully. While wheelies worked out in his favor, racing just didn’t seem to go his way as Sims was narrowly defeated both nights in a row in round one. Looking for some redemption after the early exits in racing, Sims unleashed the Stone Crusher with two stellar freestyle performances. Despite the small floor size, Sims was getting incredible, stadium event sized air as he flew the Stone Crusher across the floor. The ferocious onslaught on the track brought the crowd to their feet each night as Sims tore across the floor with a blistering pace, attacking every obstacle from every angle imaginable. While the judges may not have awarded him the victor, the hometown crowd in Hampton saluted their driver each night with roaring applause.
Now with the season in the books, the team will begin preparations for 2013 as they tear the trucks down and rebuild them better and stronger for next years. Big thanks going out to all of our crew and sponsors for their dedication throughout the year. Stay tuned for an updated schedule to see where we’re headed in the new year!
