The 2012 season brought a lot of great success to the Stone Crusher team, with many great stops across the country, but Charlotte was a special place for them last year. Across two different weekends and five events the team picked up 7 wins. It’s safe to say that Stone Crusher was the king of the monster trucks in the “Queen City” for 2012, and what better place to start 2013 than Charlotte.
Steve Sims and the Stone Crusher got off to a great start to the new year at the Time Warner Cable Arena. Sims was strong right from the start on Friday night, opening up with second place finishes in both racing and wheelies, before picking up his first win of the year in freestyle. The following afternoon Sims continued his winning ways as he picked up the wheelie contest victory, along with a second place finish in freestyle. Saturday night would be the final event of the weekend and the Stone Crusher would once again find the winners circle, knocking out Gary Porter and Grave Digger for the racing victory. Sims tried to add one more win but came up just shy of the victory in freestyle with a second place run.
With the first weekend in the books, the Stone Crusher team is set to head south for three straight weeks in Florida, and the first of two events at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
