The monster truck family, as well as all of us on the Stone Crusher and Hooked Monster Truck team lost a great friend on New Years Eve as Maxie Broaddus passed away unexpectedly. Maxie was the owner and driver of the Walking Tall monster truck. Maxie became great friends with all of us and was a bright spot in many of our lives. Away from the track Maxie was a dedicated worker who devoted himself to his craft. Over time Maxie grew his farming business into one of the largest in the state of Virginia. Maxie had a big heart and a soft spot for children as he regularly participated in children’s events and donated his time. As seen on the bedsides of Walking Tall Maxie always said “It’s all about the kids.” Our hearts go out to Maxie’s family and friends during this difficult time.
In honor of Maxie Broaddus the team will be competing this season with a graphic dedicated to him on both the Stone Crusher and Hooked for 2016. “Maxie will be riding with us all year. We lost a great friend and it just doesn’t seem real. Maxie, you better hold on tight, Sims’ is taking your long legged ass for a ride!” commented Steve Sims.
